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.

    Nope, that doesn't work on this stove. It's gas, not
    electric. It came with installation instructions, but not an
    owner's manual. I keep trying to see where there might be screws that I
    need to undo to get it to lift, and I hate to pull it away from the
    wall to do so, but maybe I have to?

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.

    you should be able to go the manufactures website and download the manual for this if you have internet or know someone else that does.

Bluestar rangetop clicks several times before igniting

Do other appliances in your home using LP gas work properly? If so, then this is probably an air/fuel mix problem on the burner(s). If this is a new rangetop there should be directions with the range and the LP conversion kit to instruct on proper adjustments. Be certain the correct LP orifice was installed for each burner (they likely have different BTU ratings for different sized burners) and the ignitor post is clean and spaced properly to burner. Then adjust the air mix to achieve a blue flame with just a tip of yellow. Delayed ignition usually results from the wrong air/gas mixture which doesn't ignite until too much fuel has accumulated. In many locations the company you purchase LP gas from will have someone who can check and adjust this. If the range was shipped from the factory as LP gas ready, then you can also contact your dealer and request assistance.

My range has a solid burner set into the top without any obvious way to remove it from the top. How do I access the connections or remove the burner from the range?

There should be 2 release "tabs" between the top surface piece and the main range... e.g. the "slot" in the front of the range.
You'll need to lift slightly on the top surface while pressing these tabs with a thin utensil - like a butter knife or paint scrapper. Be careful to not scratch the paint.
The tabs are located on the front left and right.
In some cases, you can slightly lift the top panel to get a better view of the tabs with a flashlight.
Then, the top should lift up, similar to the hood of a car.
Once inside, it's pretty easy to work on the connections, burners, etc.

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!

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.
