The only way I was able to get the screws out was to use a 5/16" cobalt drill bit to drill through the center of each screw. Then, and only then, was the GrabIT screw extraction tool able to grip and remove each screw. Of course, I had to break off what was left of the burned out burners first to get easy access to the screws. To replace the burners, remove 3 screws (in an L shaped pattern) from the left side of the burner control panel. I did NOT have to remove the utility shelf to get to these screws. The control panel can then be moved forward about an inch, thereby enabling the new burner tubes to fit into their gas spouts. TIPS: It was easier for me to attach the back of the new burners before trying to attach the fronts. I used new 6-32 machine screws to attach them. You'll need to look from the bottom of the burner control panel when attaching the front of the new burners -- to see better.
Do not remove the screws!!! break off the old burner. If you can turn the screws loosen them just enough to remove the rusted piece from behind. If not then take a hammer and cold chisel and get the pieces out. take the new burner and place the front end over the gas jet. set the back end over the screws. take a hammer and a small 1 by piece of lumber and beat them down over the screws. If it isn't tight remove the burner and tighten the screws slightly and repeat. They should rust tight after a short time and there you are.
Cut the BBQ in half with a hacksaw, then, then bend the back piece up nearest the screws, loosen the screws, then lift the piece up. After removal of the rear half of the BBQ, simply tug on the other half and it will free itself of the burner control. Then take the entire BBQ down to the nearest river and throw it in. Make sure that no one sees you as you could be pollu'tin the river with this POS.
Hope this helped Ya....it shore makes me gfeel good....

Unplug stove. There should be two screws under edge of the cook top. You need to open oven door to get at them. Remove screws, lift cook top up at the front and prop it up. There will be two or three screws with spring clips holding the burner to the cook top. Unplug the connections, remove screws, remove burner. Install in reverse. I did this at Christmas just in time for dinner. It takes about ten minutes.
remove the oven racks, in back there will be two chrome screws, remove them. Lift the lower oven panel out by pulling up from the rear. Remove the screws holding the flame spreader and remove the flame spreader. Now you will see the burner and igniter attached to it. There are 2 quarter inch hex screws holding the ignitor on. GE likes to put them on an angle, so it is easier to remove the burner tube. Remove the bottom drawer and remove the screws securing the burner to the back wall. There should be one in the front too. The burner will now lift up and you can get at the screws. The new ignitor should come with ceramic wire nuts. Just cut the old igniter, strip the ends of the wires going to it and wire nut the new one on. Reverse the rest of the steps. There is also a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that walks you thru testing this part. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations.
Replacing Burners on Charmglow 720-0036-HD-05.
1. Disconnect the gas line to the "side burner".
2. Remove the two "side shelves", each of which is held on by 4 large phillips screws.
3. Remove the "control panel" that is held on by two smaller phillips screws at each side of the "control panel".
4. Remove the "front baffle" located directly behind the "control panel that is held on by 4 phillips screws.
5. Lift off the "cooking grills" and the "flame tamers" (the plates over the burners) so that you can see the burners.
6. Now you can slide each of the burners forward and then left them out of the grill.
Replace everything in the reverse order.
yes. These screws are literally rusted in place. Begin by squirting each one with WD-40 Penetrating Lubricant. Let that sit over night so the lube will indeed penetrate. The next day the screws may back out, if not and you can get a pair of needle-nosed locking pliers on them, back em out that way. As a last resort, drill them out. Joe
The best way to install these burners is to get a vice grip/pliers and bend the end of the burner where the screws can be placed. If you notice on that end there appears to be a section where it will bend without impacting the integrity of the burner itself. It will bend enough for you to place the burner in its place. Once installed, bend back and screw in the screws to hold in place.
I am assuming your referring to the stove top burner ignitor. Well - I can only say on my Viking 48 inch - it was located at top RHS of the stove on the 'back wall'. I was advised by an 'come to my home tech' that it would be located at the back of my stove (ie he would have to pull out the built in unit and cost me 500$). In fact I replaced the unit in 30 minutes ... I removed the two RHS burners (one screw each), disconnected ignitor wires, removed the bracket holding the burners (one screw), followed ignitor wires to silver box covering the ignitor unit (2 screws), opened it & replaced ignitor. Forgot to say - 1st thing I did was turn off power & gas to the range
Yes you can fix it. Carefully remove the screws that hold the panel where the burner knobs are, There are 3 screws on each panel under the side shelf. There is another screw up underneath the face plate as well. Once the screws are out pull the face plate up and out so that all the tubes are disengaged. It should rest about 2 inches tilted back. Now remove the grates and burner covers and inspect the burner tubes. You will most likely find that spider webs or hornets have blocked off the gas flow to the burner. carefully clean every burner tube out and put everything back. You also may want to use a bit of sandpaper on the ignitor tip. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. It seems all Ducanes attract spiders on the burners...
remove the cooking grates and the 5 pieces ubnder the grates covering the burners from the grill. Next remove the 4 screws on either side of the control knob panel pull it away from grill and pull the burners out from inside the grill. DO the reverse to install new burners
grouch, kill the power to the cooktop. You are going to have to remove the mounting brackets from undernieth and push the cooktop up. After it's up from it's installation position remove the side and back screws holding the top to the botom. Remove the burner knobs and it should come apart. Sounds like you have a bad burner switch.

For women from a woman's point of view: Most if not all the screws were hex head 1/4. Have appropriate tools. A socket set will work. I like my little cordless screw driver. You will also need wire strippers and two wire nuts, they say ceramic wire nuts and electrical tape. It is also a good idea to have a someone else there for safety sake. I tipped the stove back.
Take everything our of the oven. Take big screws out at the back bottom of oven. Lift bottom of oven and push toward the back of oven. (There is a lip at the front that oven floor slides unde). Be careful as there are sharp edges all over the place once this oven bottom is off. Next unscrew the screw at the front middle of oven that holds the long burner in place. Next pull the stove drawer out and set aside. Pull stove out just enought to put large juice cans under the front legs. Way at the back you will see where the burner comes down to the gas line. There are two screws holding it to the back of the stove, remove them. Next find the two wires that come from the igniter. Unplug them. Lift out the burner. Unscrew the two screws that hold the igniter on to the burner. Carefully put the new ignitor on the burner. If the new ends do not match the old ones or if they are shorter, cut the old ones off near the old ignitor. Cut the ends off the new ignitor as far from the ignitor as you can. Clean the ends off so that about a half inch of wire is bare. Put the old ends on the new wire so that you can plug them in. Hold the two like wires so that both bare wires are parallel and screw on the wire nut. Lay it parallel to one wire and wrap electrical tape around it so that it will not pull loose. Plug in the way it was originally. Put everything back together opposite of the way you took it apart.
