These pads go on the bottom of your gas cooktop grates to prevent them from moving and scratching the top of your appliance.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
The only real issue was locating the proper adhesive to ensure that the new pads would not fall out. The small insert paper slip in the package noted that a RTV adhesive should be used. After much searching at the home improvement super store, I learned it would be found at an auto supply store. It is black, and is for high temp use. It is available in a small tube for around $2.00. The RTV is usually used to make gaskets for heat/oil exposure in auto repair. I did have trouble removing a broken stub from a pad that had broken off in the hole. I used an awl to get what I could and push the rest into the hole deeper, then insert a new pad with along with the adhesive.

I just put the grate pads in the bottom of the grate. The repair was a snap.

Been looking for grate pads for 10 years and finally found you site and part # WPL 814323.Wasn't sure that they would fit but couldn't even find new grates so decide to try them --Fit perfect.Kitchen aide stove top gas with round grates. Used the drill to clean out the holes with broken pads still embedded.With clean holes the new pads just screwed in like the originals. Thank you very much
Original bumper pads NOT glued into the burner grates. Hence they began to disappear during routine use and cleaning. Very simple repair with a little glue this time around. But fairly expensive for a very small part set
cleaned out pad area with an awl. then the pads just slide in.
remove grate - flip upside down - be sure holes are clean and dry - using toothpick, swab some RTV sealant into the holes and a bit on the pads ... insert pads till they seat - be sure to hold in place till all air is evacuated - wipe excess RTV with paper towel...DONE
Put the new pad in and it was done. Very easy.
