How to lift rangetop

Hiya! I was cleaning the range top when I dropped a piece of candy down into the burner area. How do I lift the rangetop to get it out, or to clean under there? The stove's fairly new, so haven't needed toclean under there yet, but will eventually. Thanks.

Re: how to lift rangetop

You should be able to lift it up actually fairly easy by grabbing onto each corner near front and lifting. Then usually a little prop comes out to set so it stays up and you can clean.

One side burners will not light electrically. Will click but won't light. Can light manually

use a small piece of wet and dry emery cloth to clean betweent the contacts. it looks like a bent piece of wire above the gas outlet you have to remove the gas defuser plate which just lifts off the top of the burner. hope this is of use.

I have a four burner Viking gas range. How to clean the top?

Something that will work very well to break the grease bond from the metal is Ammonia. The problem with Ammonia is that is puts off fumes and can become a dangerous gas if it is mixed with other chemicals like bleach! So that being said be very careful using it. I would try dilluting it down from full strength to maybe a 50/50 mix of water and Ammonia in a spray bottle. Then lightly spray just the stubborn areas where the food is built-up and let it soak for about a minute. Then use a soft sponge with a scrubby side to remove the food. Remember to go with the grain on the stainless steel or you will see scratches. After you have cleaned the range you will need to apply a really good stainless steel cleaner and polish to keep the stains from sticking to the metal. Remember when using the Ammonia to use it in a well ventilated area and DO NOT MIX it with anything other than water!

How do you open the stove lid of a Kenmore 7907138 five burner gas range? I need to clean it.

You need to be careful with sealed burner ranges. If you try to lift the range top you can damage the alluminum gas pipes for the burners under the range top. Check to see if the burner heads lift off. If the burner heads are held on by screws make sure you remove those first. With the heads removed look down into the cooktop thru the hole where the burner sits. Make sure the orfice is not attached to the lid. If they are you may see a screw you can remove. Look for any other screws behind the oven door that may be attached to the lid. Apply light pressure when trying to lift the lid. If you feel any major resistence DO NOT FORCE IT UP. also has parts schematics for every range they make and that will visually help with the dis-assembly because you can see how the parts go together. Also MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE AND TURN OFF THE GAS VALVE BEFORE WORKING ON IT!!!

Want know how to open the top of range to clean?

This is not really meant to be done by user. If done incorrectly you could easily bend or break the gas lines to the top burners.

First you need to remove all the screws in the top burners and remove the burners. Then carefully twist out the ignitors. They do not necessarily have to be disconnected. Then remove all the knobs in front. and remove the manifold cover (that's the cover behind the knobs).

You will then be able to remove the screws that hold the top down and lift the top up high enough to clean under it. Lift this carefully though making sure that the gas lines do not bend when you do it.

Viking range top 2 burners won't light

Either the igniters are at fault (which is usually the case when one or two are not working) or the entire oven ignition system needs to be replaced and can be done through Viking themselves whether you want them to replace it or you yourself replace it, you can get the part through them.
