Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a 5 burner stovetop from Bosch. It was in the house when I purchased the house. We cannot sit a pan on the left grate because it will slide down and spill the contents. Is it possible that there are special feet that mount to the bottom of the grate. The indents in the stainless do not seem deep enough to ho;d the grate.

    I do not understand your weld comment! If the nipples are rubber what are they going to weld? Grate to stainless pan? Then I could not get access to the burner parts.

    OK, I removed the rates and did, indeed find small niples on the bottom of the feet. now that I know they are there and I am still having the problem of it sliding out of place, do you have any suggestions? I am wondering if I should clean them with silicone, which may just make them slicker and worsen my problem - or maybe scuff them up a little so they will hold onto the stainless pan. They are really small, maybe a 1/16" thick and 1/4 in in diameter. Giving some thought to getting a punch and trying to make the dimples in the stainless deeper.



    This is really not a good design! I will not be a buyer of new Bosch appliances!

This is fairly common problem with bosch and thermador cook tops that have stand away grates. the grate usually has a nipple on the bottom of the leg to fit into the dimple in the cook top. Unless something has changed, you cant order just the rubber nipple, you have to order the whole grate. You may be able to get a better price through www.Appliance411.com or if you can get to a welding shop they can weld it and repaint the steel black. This would most likely last longer because it will be all steel. Hope this helps. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

    The welding comment is in reference to the rubber nipple on the grate seams to be missing and hart to find replacements. If you know of a welding shop in your area then they could weld in a metal nipple on the bottom of the grate to make it sit correctly. As for the link, I spoke with a bosch rep. and was informed that you may be able to purchase the rubber nipples through there website. If you can't Find it there you can order it by phone at 1-800-944-2904 from 5am to 7pm PST Monday through friday. You will need to give them the model number when you go on-line or when you call. The model number is located on the under side of the cook top near the gas inlet.Hopefully this can get this fixed for you. Again please re-post with any questions or updates. If you feel that this has helped then accept and rate. Thanks again cj2176.

    The punch is not a bad idea, but be careful on that. If memory searves me, the stainless is not very thick and you may go through.

Can not get top off how to work on gas surface burners


If you provided the correct model, you should only need to remove the grates to get to the burner caps. Just lift up, on some stoves you may need to slide one of the grates a fraction of an inch away from the other if the grates are in pairs on each side. Then you can lift off the burner caps, note the caps fit onto pegs and must be positioned correctly onto the pegs when you put them back and then the sealed burner units.The drip pans also just lift out. After those parts are out you are at the main top which has no clips or screws on the parts diagram. However the flue cover may block you from just lifting it up.

I hope this helps.

Where is the serial number located on stove?


If it is labeled like the other VGIC stoves, the serial number is on the left hand side of the burner box (stovetop). Remove the left side surface burner grates, burner bowl and grate supports.

I hope this helps.

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove


  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

Where can I locate the model number on my viking range? (48")


Mine was located to the left of the top burners. Remove the grates covering the burners, remove the 'spill' pans, lift up the surface that held the spill pans and then on the LHS you should see a plate with your units details.

Jenn-Air model svd48600. Gas stove top, electric oven. Why would the exhaust fan turn itself on whe either of the left burners is lit.


The switch for the optional grill attachment is activating...pull the tray/pan on the left side that holds the two burner grates toward the front...it should shut off. To correct the problem permanently, you'll need to adjust the position of the switch. The switch gets lose over time and slides on its mount until it gets out of range. The purpose of the switch is to activate the blower continuously when using the optional grill accessory. When you remove the left-side grates and the tray/pan the grates set in...you'll notice a protruding piece of metal on the front of tray/pan that fits into a hole in the cavity where the tray sits. Inside that hole is the switch that is out of position. Getting at the switch to adjust its position is not difficult, but you need to remove the upper front panel...KLS

Viking pro 6 burner cooktop igniter won't stop clicking after lighting on two of the burners


Do not attempt if your stovetop is hot, you will get burned!!

This is an easy fix, the problem is your burners aren't lined up properly. Remove the iron grates (what your pots rest on) and the burner cap (the round black top on the burner) and finally the burner base (the round golden colored piece resting on the stainless stovetop). If you flip the base over you will see that it is keyed, meaning there is a grove that fits the indentation on the stove top. When you replace the base make sure to line the grove up with the indentation. If it's not flush with the stove top, slowly twist the round burner base until it falls into place. That's it!

Crooked stovetop burners


This happens when purchasing pans/bowls from home depot ect..., there are so many different shapes and models you never get the right ones. Order new bowls online with your model number located behind oven door to get the correct size and the elements should be fine.

Cleaning and care for my GE Profile stovetop


The one thing I don't suggest is using the Ceramabryte product the dealer left with us. It leaves a greasy film. When I get ready to clean my black GE Profile, I pull off the controls to wash separately. Then I lift off the grates, take a single-edge razor blade to scrape anything stuck on (it doesn't scratch), then I use baking soda and scrub and scrub with lots of paper towels. Then I start cleaning off the baking soda with lots and lots more paper towels. There is still a film, but at least it's not greasy. At this point I grab some more dry paper towels, pour on a 3' puddle of rubbing alcohol and wipe it all over the stove top and front. You may have to do this twice. Then, if I don't turn on the hood light's brightest setting, it really doesn't look too bad. I have to do this at least once a week, as I have never had a stove that got so dirty so fast and was such a pain to clean.

FYI, I would never buy another of these stoves. Besides the cleaning issue, there is the fact of having to replace the igniter (glow plug?) twice in the first four years. My old, bottom-of-the line Magic Chef went 25 years with the first replacement not coming until it was about 15 years old. Also, the broiler is unimpressive and steaks, etc., just sort of steam. Can't get a really good crust going. It's a slide-in and the top is very narrow, front to back, because of the slanted control panel on the front, and so you really can't put two large pots or pans on one side. Let's see....oh yes, I ordered the unglazed grates for safety reasons and it came with the procelain glaze. Those were replaced free of charge, though I had to go pick them up. Then the first set of unglazed grates began to rust about six months into use, so had to be replaced (again, no charge at least). Recently I noticed that the inside walls of the oven, where the racks slide, are starting to rust. Finally, the burners are difficult to calibrate, which I really notice when I try to cook rice, which comes out right about 50% of the time.

Now, on top of all this, I have to worry about the glass door exploding?!?! Should I ban my grandchildren from the kitchen? Has anyone from Consumer Reports seen this website?
