Hello Mary Beth, I am happy to assist you!


I understand you are seeking information on how to life the top of your Frigidaire range for the above-listed model number, FGF316. Here are some simple steps you need to take:


  • Grasp the side of your cooktop and then lift from the front.

  • The top high would need to be lifted high enough to allow the support rods to snap into place. The Lift-up rods will support the top in its raised position.

  • While the cooktop is lifted up, you can use soapy water and a clean cloth, and then dry to clear underneath.

  • Lower the top gently by pushing back on each rod (when lowering the top, grasp the sides with fingertips only. Be careful not to pinch fingers). This will release the notched support. Hold the range top and slide he range top down into the range frame.



I hope this information helps to some degree. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect!

    Hi Chris. Thanks for your response. I have no idea why my stove was listed as a gas range. It's actually a 1954 Frigidaire Electric Range. I was able to remove the front control knobs and in the small space, actually remove the entire bulb assembly. I'm hoping the GE 44 bulbs I found work! thanks!

SOURCE: oven wont come obut igniter works

Yes, it could be the knob or the oven control.

If the knob fits tightly to the control, and turns the stem of the control, then I would be suspect of the control. But if the knob fits loosely, I would be suspect of the knob.

You didn't say what model of range. However, on many of them you have to remove the control knobs to begin with. Be sure the gas valve is off. Look for couple of screws under the front or behind the knobs. Unfortunately, some models require removal of that front panel where the knobs are before you can reach the screws that hold the top down. Some Maytag models are like that.

Cycle control GE WHDSR315 top loading washer.


Try pulling the knobs off completely and squirting WD-40 into the switch interior--work the oil in by reinstalling the knobs and moving them around. If no help, then the area behind the control panel must be accessed (pull the power plug), and the control replaced (you should have seen the mounting screws when the knobs were off).

How to replace the selector control knob on a Frigidaire front load washer Model FWT449GFS2


Push-in center knob and and turn Counter Clockwise to loose it from the treaded shaft. Next, without Pushing in, continue turning CC till it comes off.

If necessary, remove the outer indicator knob by sqeezing the two release clips in the center. This knob is keyed to only go back on one way so you don't need to remember its location before removal.

Reverse the process to install new knobs.

Oh, if you need to replace the cam or timer which are behind these knobs, the front panel will have to be removed by first removing the top cover of the washer. Now you can access the six screws inside the washer and one in front behind the detergent dispenser.

Replace lighting behind the heater controls


Yeah , something would have broke for real had you pried it any more.
There is a bulb just below the control panel that lights the panel up... and more screws to remove to access it. The ones behind the knobs need to be replaced ( they hold the switches to the face plate), and you need to unscrew the ones behind the trim and above the ash tray.
The trim comes off in one piece (held by clips).

Cant get oven to work


hi Step 1: Take out the screws that hold the panels, and pull off the control knobs. On the control panel the knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight off. Some knobs may have setscrews in the base of the knobs; back out these screws using a screwdriver or Allen wrench and pull off the knobs.

Step 2: Remove the back service panel on the control panel by backing out a series of screws around the edge of the panel. To remove the front panel, take off the control knobs and remove a series of mounting screws that hold the decorative panel to the frame. These screws may be hidden by molding or trim; pry off the molding or trim with a screwdriver, or take out several screws.

Step 3: To gain access to the burner assemblies, remove the burner grates and then the top of the range. The entire range top should either lift up and off the range or open up and back on hinges. The oven door can usually be removed by pulling it straight up off the hinges on both sides of the door. Some hinges have a latch that must be unlocked before the door can be removed.

Step 4: If the surface light of the range burns out, remove retaining screws and panels as necessary to gain access to the bulb. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same type and wattage; check the ends of the old bulb for this information. Then replace any retaining panels.

Step 5: If the oven light burns out, unscrew it and remove it from the oven. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same wattage, made for oven use.

How do I remove the selector knob on washer


The main selector control know spins off by turning the selector inner knob counterclockwise. The outer ring will then pull off. The other knobs are held on with friction and should just pull off.

The best way to get behind the front panel is by removing the top panel of the machine. There should be 2 gray/solver tabs at the back of the machine near the top if you remove the 2/4 screws from the top then the whole top panel will slide forward then lift off.

Be sure to unplug the machine first.

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
