I replaced the broken grommets with the new ones. I purchased 8 so I would have back ups because I did not feel the new one would last either. I think they cost TOO MUCH but I could not haggle for price.

Take a few screws off the back of the slide in burner module. Take off the back. Unscrew the ignitor screw, remove ignitor carefully, replace with the new ignitor, put the screw back in, put the back back on, try it out! Ours worked after a couple of tries - don't know if the ignitor had to "rev up" by several sparks or we just didn't have it properly installed at first. Anyway, very easy. Did it in my pajamas on a Saturday morning.

First I turned off the propane tanks.

I then removed the two stove racks on the top of the stove and removed the metal cover surrounding the burner elements.

Next I detached the gas line and quickly inserted the temporary plug (supplied with stove) to stop the left over gas from entering the camper.

I then removed the two lower screws at the base of the stove just below the oven door and the two screws at the top rear of the stove securing the stove .

I now removed the stove.

Next I detached the pilot element from inside the oven and from the opposite end at the top of the stove at the burner area.

Now I replaced the element with the new one and replaced the stove all in the reverse order.

Even though the ceramic insulator looked new (white), it had become non-functional, replacement was simple, 2 phillips screws, reassemble and test. Now I will have to order the other 3.

I removed the stove top over the burners. Then I Opened the oven door and removed the shelf and then the bottom tray. It had to be pushed back against springs and lifted up. If it does not lift, hit the front of the tray in an upward motion with the heal of your hand. The lets you access the oven burner area. I removed the wingnut from the metal deflector over the burner and removed it. Now you have access to the pilot assembly. remove two acrews ans save them. Go back to the top and with a wrench, remove the caps that hold the tubes to the oven valve. Be sure the gas is turned off at the propane tank, now remove the main gas line from the stove valve system. Now remove the four screws along the sides of the oven top. This will allow the oven to slide out enough to reach the back where a plastic clamp is holding the two tubes attached to the pilot. These will need to be pulled toward the back of the stove as you pull the pilot assemble out the from of the oven. Once you have worked the old pilot assembly out, install the new one in reverse order. Reconnect all the tubing nice and snug, after pushing the oven back into place. After you get everything back together, before you light up, use leak detector fluid to be sure you don't have a gas leak. Before you even order parts though, you should try to adjust the pilot flame if it is very small. It should be at least 1/4" high. 1/8" is not enough to heat the thermocupler. I had to drill a hole thru the front of the stove in the location of the pilot adjustment because Magic Chef drilled the hole in the wrong place. I ended up doing this after the new pilot assembly did not correct the problem. David Calif.

Igniter insulation had cracked and spark was shorting out on the flame holder whatchmacallit.

The flame holder twists about 1/2 inch to left and lifts off. I removed the two screws that holds the igniter on and removed it and installed the new igniter.
There was one complication: when I put it back together, there was no spark. I removed the ground wire and cleaned and scraped it and replaced it and still no spark. But, for no apparent reason the spark returned and has been okay since.

I used the other good burner assembly to isolate the problem to the igniters or the igniter block. I ordered both parts from Parts Select. They shipped the parts promptly and after 10 minutes of install time, the burners worked flawlessly.
Thank You Parts Select.

Pilot would not light or stay on

Replaced the pilot and tubing, this is a RV stove and oven. The easiest way to replace it was to pull the stove slightly away from the wall as the tubing had a securing strap to the back stove wall which had to be removed to get the pilot tubing removed and the new put in. That was the most time consuming. Anyone with some handyman capability can do this job quite easily. If you use part of the old end of the tube connection at the pilot as I did make sure that you insert the new small pin hole restricter (my term).
