    Ok. But how do I release it to open the top? I pull up on the stove and it won't release. Is there a clip in the middle - or sides to release?

  • cilla73061 Apr 19, 2009

    I see the clips on both sides. I'll try it. Push in on the clip correct? Thanks

The top panel lifts up like the hood of a car. There is also a support rod on the right side to keep it propped up.

    Hi Cilla,
    The parts breakdown does not show any clips. However, that doesn't mean they aren't there! Here's a diagram I made for you. It shows where clips are commonly placed. Normally, you can use a screwdriver (flat blade) and press the clip in (while simultaneously lifting up on the top) to release it.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Cilla,
    Yep. You got it. Push in on the clip and lift the top at the same time.

    (p.s. Please rate my solution, deal?)

    I am having the same problem with the stovetop, I can't get it lifted up to clean under the burners. I TOTALLY HATE HAVING THAT OPENING where drippings & crud overflows to make such an AWFUL MESS!

  • Leisa Sep 08, 2012

    it looks like it should lift up like the hood of a car, BUT IT DOESN'T, I can't even get it to release!

How do i open top of stove to clean under the burners

You can but I wouldn't recommend it . It is relatively sealed clean, but I will tell you anyway... there are three screws each under each burner that hold the top down to the burners so if you have 5 burners there are 15 screws to take off...put them in a cup so you don;t loose them after removing the screws ..go to the front lip of the top ..take a butter knife and put between the seam near the corners will feel a type of spring resistance push in to release spring pressure and pull up on the corner of left and right of the top and remove top.. You will be surprised how clean it really is.

I have a Frigidaire gas stovetop range that smells of gas only when the power plus burner is lit

I hope you haven't cracked the tubing to the burner. If the stove is a sealed burner model it could be that when you tried to open the top you could have cracked the tubing to the burner. I had this happen to a client just a few weeks ago. The damage was so bad they had to buy a new stove. You may be able to replace just the offending burner tube.

We took apart our kenmore gas stove because a rat had been living in it. We cleaned it up and now can't put it back together! We are looking for an assembly manual. Please help.

How do I open the top of my Kenmore stove to clean under it? I am trying to clean it because some of the burners don't want to light when I turn the knobs.

How do I access the spill tray under the element of a chef stove in order to clean it?

Make sure that all of your burners are off and cool. Raise the stove top. It should tilt from front to back. There will likely be rods inside to hold the top open.

Gas stove /electric starter won't click to start cleaned stove

Try cleaning the starter with rubbing alcohol and toothbrush. There might be soap or boiled over residue on the starter. If that doesn't work, try using fine 150 grit sandpaper and gentle clean the starter with it. This problems drove me nuts too. Good luck!

Want to clean under stovetop

welcome to Fixya,
This stove has sealed burners and there is no need to lift or clean under anything except the burner caps.
You can not get inside the top and you can not lift the top like the old pilot stoves!
When you clean the burners and around rings do not spray or saturate the are and or the igniter element that creates the spark.I'll be back in a moment with your user manual.
first what is the complete model number of your range as written on the sticker in the door jam of the storage compartment down below. left side!
