Removed burner pan screws,igniters, gas tubes & burners. Changed 2 igniters, removed rust & repainted ends of 2 of the tubes (heatproof paint). New burners were made a hair smaller than original but locked in O.K...Now, the hard part...disconnected all four tubes from gas valve assembly. (Had to shut off gas to house in order to remove main gas line to stovetop.) Had to remove valve box in order to remove/replace frozen valve. Unit is 25 years old, works as and looks new...Rust was caused by boil-overs.

As the video said, twist burner to the counterclockwise 1/8 turn. Lift the burner straight up. Disconnect the two wires. Remove the burner and reconnect the wires ( they only go one way so they cannot be connected backwards.) Place the burner over the gas fitting and turn the burner clockwise until snug. I turned the power off at the circuit breaker box. The video was extremely helpful.
