I had put up with a filter that got more and more raggedy every year, but I thought my 30 yr. old range/grill top was too old for me to find an replacement filter. What a great service you offer. I found you by web-surfing, typed in the model #, and presto--you sent me the shiny new filter. All I had to do was pop it in and throw away the nasty grill (after washing the scent off to keep the bears out of my Colorado garbage.) Thank you!

Cleaned out the downdraft cove, inserted the new filter, and put old filter in garbage can. Laughing. Thanks. Wish you had a FAQ's hotline. I'd like to know if the radiant inserts fit the older coil-type models.

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!

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.

Gas range would not light

  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Replaced spark module but same problem persisted. Realized that the insulation on the spark ignitors were all cracked, causing a short.

Lesson learned: check the condition of the spark ignitors first as these have a tendency to crack. Even the smallest crack will cause a short.

Ordered new spark ignitors and plan to complete repair.

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

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

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.

The burner igniter would not spark to light the burner.

Fan switch had broken and cracked...no longer worked

The repair would have been very easy if the diagram of the cook stove control plate had indicated that the plate itself was discontinued, and either a new stove top would be needed, or a person who could do some metal cutting. There are 2 screws that hold the control plate down, and 2 screws each for each of the control posts, then just unplug 3 prongs from the damaged switch. Easy. However, when I saw there were 2 different types of face plates included with the fan switch, that were nothing like the original plate and couldn't fit over or with it, and after going back on line to the diagram and finally finding that the face plate was discontinued, I knew I would have to improvise. I took both the new plate to use as a template for the hole for the switch, the new switch and original plate to my neighbor who does metal work. He cut a new hole in the old plate, I put the switch through it and reassembled the controls and it works fine.

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.
