How do I clean under the electric elements on my basic westinghouse stove

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you would like to clean under the cooktop on your Frigidaire range. Could you provide me with your model number please? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the storage drawer on the right hand side. With this information I can better assist you. -Matt

So when I try to light one burner - it lights up. After 20-30 seconds, there is stlll a clicking sound then the burner goes off. I cannot figure this out, can anyone help? Really appreciate it. Thanks

It probably has a flame failure device..
This is to cut off the gas if the flame goes out..
When you light the burner, the flame heats a sensor which keeps the gas on, if this is faulty, the gas will go out.

GE Profile mod. PP975bM3BB all lights work Burner will not heat

You have lost half of the circuit in the breaker, the lights work on one side of it but the burners need both sides of a 220 volt circuit. I would have the breaker tested first, and if it is good, look for a fuse, relay, breaker in the back of the stove. Hope this helps.

Should I buy a two burner unit if available? Or a new cooktop?

Yes you can as long as there ae two heat controls for the grill side of the stove/cooktop. That allows one burner control for each of the burners. You should be able to order directly from GE but I would also check out since they normally sell OEM GE parts cheaper than you can buy them from GE. At least check out the price at both sources beforw purchasing.

Poorly functioning Shipmate stove


Normally pressing red buttons on stoves is for lighting the oven. You press the button, light the pilot light, leave it depressed for a minute and then that heats up the thermocouple, which opens a valve and allows gas to the main burner.

Shipmate Stoves are still in business, so you could contact them. The link also suggests places for Shipmate propane gas stove spares.

Broke glass on electric genn-air

Please do not use the stove if the element is viable because of broken glass, this could become a danger to yourself.

Look at the cost of a new stove, you should be able to get one for
around 400.00. One of my customers had a glass top with 4 burners,
they had the same thing happen, the cost to replace the top was
1,200.00. So I would assume that you can get a new stove with 4
burners less then it would cost to replace the part on a stove you don't like. Maybe there is a LOWES around you to look at stoves,
they seem to be everywhere,like death and taxes.

As for putting a 4 burner top on a stove that has 2 with grill, I don't think it can be done without the extra cost of adding the parts to run the other 2 burners, so like I said in the long run,it just might be cheaper to but a new stove. It should not be a big deal to remove the exhaust from the grill part of the stove.

I looked at the model# you put down,and it does not have a grill,
from what I see, there are 4 burners and a downdraft vent in between the 4 burners, there are 6 models with this part # and none have a grill,only the downdraft vent.

If the model# is right, the cost would be around 300.00 for the glass, and then the cost of having it replaced. So I would say over
400.00, In which case for the same amount you could have a new one, but you must weigh the difference for yourself and see what you think is the best way to go.
If you have any more questions,please post back and everyone is more than willing to help you. I hope I have helped a little.

On Light Won't go off on cooktop

I am asuming you mean a standard cook top stove.
you should probebly unplug the range because it looks like a short circuit.
!) a shorted or failing burner/control will light to ground
2) every burrner has a fuse, unscreww each burnner fuse till light goes out. that is the problem piece.
3) change heating elements with the element of the same size on the other side of the stove.
4)put fuse back in. if light off - bad elemet - if light on - bad control
bad control - I'm not sure you want to tackle that. but call me back :)
