First, you need to look below the cooktop to find the gasline. There is supposed to be a shutoff valve on this gasline. Turn the handle so it is parallel with the gasline (perpendicular is closed) to open it. Before lighting anything, smell around high and low around the cooktop and make sure you do not smell any gas. You can also spray soapy water on all the gasline fittings to detect leaks by looking for bubbles that form. If all is safe, using a long butane lighter, light the pilots for the cooktop. There should be 1 pilot for every 2 burners. You will probably have to remove the grates and metal spill covers to light the pilots. The pilot should be approx 3/8" tall or less. Test each burner individually to make sure they light off the pilot. If they do not, you may need to clean the vertical holes on the side of the burner (where the lighting tunnel connects) by poking them clean with a needle. If the horizontal burner holes are clogged, clean them as well. If there is also a built-in wall gas oven, be sure to light that pilot on that as well. Good luck. Douglas

One of the knobs will not turn at all in either direction. How can I get it to turn?


The picture shows a drop in glass cook top (electric) You have to pull the top, disassemble it from the bottom and replace the switch. Most switches have five wires on them L1 L2 which are your hot 240v, h1 h2 which go to the burner(dual burner switch has h3 h4), and p is the pilot. Terminals are marked, just change one wire as you go or mark the wires as you change the part. Make sure your house breaker is off, no power to unit when working on it . Be careful of the glass top when working on it

3 wire cook top to a 4 wire outlet


Older 3 wire connectors where Wht=Neutral Ground Return, Red=One Phase Hot, Blk=Second Phase Hot, of 220VAC stove connections.

Newer Electrical code standard has a forth wire that is bare copper for a separate safety ground return.
I suggest you but a 4 wire pig tail cable for your stove top, available at Depot or Lowes, and connect 3 wires of this 4 wire cable just like the 3 wires are now connected. The 4th bare copper safety is attached to any metal part of the stove. Find a screw you can loosen to wrap it around and tighten.
