The surface burner head is used for ranges and ovens, and is located on the cooktop, where the flames go up. The surface burner spreads the gas through holes to create an even flame throughout the entire cooking area. If your surface burner is damaged it can affect the distribution of gas, or the flames may not come up correctly. If this is the case, replace this part. The measurements of the surface burner are: 6.25 inches in length, 5.13 inches in width, 8 inches in height, and 0.4 pounds in weight. Allow your cooktop to cool before installing this part. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further repair instructions.
