    Thanks I will try it. I don't think that the electric is very strong as it is a gas stove and the electric is just to fire it up. I will try it anyway. thanks again

The cord from the electric top is usually at the rear and might go down to the rear bottom possible right rear bottom. Now PLEASE TAKE CARE IF THERE IS NO OTHER MAINS TO SWITCH OFF BEFORE YOU TRACE THIS LINE, IF THERE IS ANY POSSIBILITY OF A LEAK.
However if there is not plug fitting seen as in some cases the wires might be connected into the side socket with a connector, if so you will need to disconnect this connector to pull out the line.
Incidently the oven has to be moved to get access to this point .Since you are doing up the kitchen I would advice that you take the oven out as well and do a good cleaning before the new top is set back.
When settting back take care to fix back according to the wire connection colours you have noted before it was removed - if connectors were used.
Test the line before the new top is set.

Hi, with stoves etc, because they can draw a huge amount of current, are usually WIRED in directly to the Mains. The have a wire going straight back the the Fuse Board to a breaker or fuse assembly. As the Plug that would have to be used would need to be an Industrial one... usually they are called a Rayroll plug and socket, however I doubt that the installer would have used one, and if they did it would be obvious as they are Very large and usually orange or Blue.
You will most likely need to open up the back, and disconnect the wires directly. Of course Turn the Breaker OFF, or remove the Fuse FIRST.
Sometimes they are wired into a Connection Box on the Wall. If so then that;s the place we disconnect from.
BE CAREFUL please.

I am disassembling a Kenmore stove top gas burner to clean under the stove top. To do so you actually need to unscrew the burners, which I've done, but then I need to unhook the spark electrode, which...


The electrode is held onto the burner head with a screw through the mounting tab. They can get crusted over and it's not always easy to see the screw head, but it's there.

I am painting in my kitchen and it is recommended to turn off stove pilot gas so know combustion happens. I have a Tappan gas stove that says "electronic ignition" on it. How do I turn off...


Hi,
If you have an electronic ignition, there are no open flames. So you are ok to paint. Just make sure to not turn anything on while the paint fumes are in the air and you will be good.
If you do want to turn off the stove, unplug it from the wall. To turn the gas off you will need to pull it away from the wall and turn off the valve behind it, if it has a valve, some do not.

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;


most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?


We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.

Partial venting


Are you running the vent fan whenever you cook on the stove top? You should.

And you should run it on high if you're having steam problems.

Otherwise, you'll need to do something like use a small counter top fan to help circulate the air better.

Please let us know if we can help further.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
