Gas burner head on stove top rusted out producing blue flame where there shouldn't be

Removed stove top module and unscrewed the bottom panel. Burner head rotated out fairly easily. I ordered both the burner unit and the igniter just to be safe even though the old igniter still worked. I used the other module as a guide to reassemble the unit. The new burner head was little difficult to rotate back in and did not rotate quite as far as the original so the gas pipe was just a fraction out of alignment but there is some flex so it worked out OK when it was re-installed. Everything worked perfectly when I turned on the burner and there are no gas leaks and no blue flames where there shouldn't be!

flames from below the burner

Replaced fairly easily all 4 burners as the old ones were totally rusted and cracked (the reason why the flame emitted from below the burners)

Spark igniter out

The primary spark igniters failed. Take the (small) screws out of the sides and bottom of the pan. The front of the pan must be removed from the bottom, because the front burner igniter wire is too short to allow reassembly once attached. Only other is the screws for the attachment bracket are larger than the holes. Suggest routing them out slightly to get them to grip the screws. Otherwise it is quite simple. Pull the connections with a needlenose and press the new wire connection back on firmly. Screw the screws back in the pan.

burner would not light; ignitor did not produce spark

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.

Mom and Dad are old now and when a repairman quoted them 225.00 to repair their stove top I told them to tell the repairman to take a hike. I found your website very easwy to navigate and ordered the part which cost about 27.00 with shipping. When the part arrived, I just had to use a phillip head screwdriver and repaced the burner in about 15 minutes. It worked GREAT!!. Mom called me over today for some good homade cooking....Thanks Partselect!!!!

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 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.

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.

Simply remove the box containing the two right burners. Access the igniter by removing about 8 screws and pull the coupler for the igniter off with a pair of needel nose pliers. Replace with new igniter using the same tool. Re-assemble the box by screwing in the screws and give it a try. Worked great. Once slight hitch, be sure you don't leave a second screw driving in the box. As it will raddle. So I had to remove and reassemble twice. I'm not a surgeon! Thanks for the fast delivery!

To gain access to the burner, the bottom of the double burner unit had to be removed (7 screws). Once this was achieved, it was a simple matter of removing the old burner head which is captured with three lobes that engage the unit much like a thread,(which in my case was stuck in because of rust and had to be persuaded with a pipe wrench). The new burner was installed with hand pressure only, and once the gas flange was remounted and the ignitor hooked up, I just re-attached the bottom of the unit and viola!
