Cover for a gas stove

Not a good idea. The manufacturers don't offer covers for ranges, to increase counter top space, for good reason.

Amana counter top gas stove when plugged in start making clicking noise and you can smell gas .

on most, your push down and turn to hi to open gas valve and turn on piezio to light burner. it sounds like you have a knob already turned on . the control under the knob may need replacing. kinda an easy replacement if you get new part. check out for video(maybe) but for parts for sure. be careful. gas is explosive.

I have a new viking stove slide in electric top range that was installed in our kitchen with existing granite counter tops. But there seems to be a small gap between the stove and the counter. My previous...

If you are talking about a gap caused by the height of the stove, You can lower the height of the stove by adjusting the threaded leg posts on the bottom of the stove. A more difficult fix would be in raise the height of the countertop and cabinets by shimming the bottom of the cabinets.

If your gap is not a height issue, then you can experiment with some type of trim around the stove itself. Local granite dealers has an assortment of trims for issues like this.

I was able to find a number of trims for a back gap on my granite countertops and backsplash from my local European Marble and Granite.

I need to remove the top on my whirlpool gold gas range. It's model gs395legq3. It's about 9 years old. I got the clips in the front un-done but cannot figure out whats going on in the back. Has to be some...

How to remove the top on a whirlpool gold gas range model GS395LEGQ3, bought around the year 2000.

Please reall ALL directions before beginning. I suggest EVERYONE try step 2 before trying step 1, but not before reading ALL directions first!

First and most important shut gas valve off to your stove and unplug it.

Second and equally important, you MUST remove ALL sealed burners. You CANNOT get the top up(without messing something up)until you get the burners off. It is very easy to do. Just get a philips screwdriver or better yet a square drive bit that fits. If the screws look a little rusty(they probably do)insert your screwdriver or square bit and LIGHTLY tap the handle a few times, sort of like your pounding a nail. This helps to loosen the screws. Next just remove screws and carefully remove the burners by lifting STRAIGHT UP and gently twisting back and forth. Be watchful of the ceramic ignitors.

For the next step it is easier if you can pull out your stove so the front is about 5" in front of the counter-top. You MUST be careful that when pulling out the stove you don't kink/break/bend the gas line that goes to the stove. If your not comfortable you can pull out your stove without messing the gas line up it should still be possible to get the range top up but may be a bit more difficult.


1. Pull stove out so the front is about 5 inches out from your counter-top. Now gently pry the front of the range-top up and wedge something in there to hold it up(I used the handle on a plastic spatuala). You will only be able to pry it up about 1/4"-1/2". Use a flashlight and locate the clips holding the top down. They are located on either side about 3" in from the front. Use a butter knife and push the clip IN towards the center of the stove to release the range top. Once these clips are released you just have to lift the top up as it is on hinges. Just be careful and watch the wiring for your burner ignitors.

2. In order to get the top up you have to wiggle the front of the range top side to side in order to loosen the clips holding the range top. Try wiggling the top side to side and lifting at the same time. Hopefully the top will come loose from the clips then just lift up being careful of the ignitor wiring. If it does not come loose you may be able to use the butter knife method mentioned in step 1 but you will have to do it from the front of the stove which will be a bit more difficult.

All work is performed at your own risk. I am not licensed and take no responsibility for any work done by others.

Brand new gas stove. When oven is turned on there is a heavily gas smell.

There have been reports of gas ranges which have been installed with no leveling legs. (due to various reasons, like a new floor installed, but the counter tops stayed in the same place, so the range surface would be higher than the counter top if the legs were installed) In some cases, this results in an insufficient amount of combustion air for the oven. To test this, put the range up on a set of 3/4 inch or so blocks and try the oven again. Let me know how that went. Thanks.

Just happened to me. I unplugged the electric starter, wiped up the water, took off burners, etc., and placed a fan over the stove. After about 3 hours, I plugged in starter and the clicking is no longer.
