The repair was a simple replacement, no tools needed. The old burner and grate came out as easily as the new parts went in. PartSelect Customer Service Rep D. Hanham helped me find and order the correct grate. Great Customer Service!

Very easy. I disconnected the original burner with one turn as well as the two wire connections for the electronic igniter. I then connected the wires to the same positions on the new burner and placed the new burner in place with one half turn to match the indented openings to secure the burner tightly in place.

This is the second repair to this stove-- A few years ago I went to Parts Select to find a new light panel, and that repair went perfectly. So when we re-did the kitchen I decided that the old stove would look fine so long as we could find some new grates. Custom-sized, nobody had them, but your company found them and shipped them quickly. We thoroughly cleaned the stove and PERFECT! This is a good way to keep stoves and other appliances out of the landfill!! I love it.

Your site was easy to navigate, which made determining the problem from other customers easy, and choosing the correct part to replace the malfunctioning burner.

The malfunctioning burner was easy to remove by twisting it a quarter turn counter clockwise, removing the two wires and replacing it with the new burner cap with electrode.

All the burner caps had badly rusted; tip-off was the smell of gas.

Our handyman took off the burner caps and checked after we reported smelling gas. We ordered the replacements here, and they arrived by only the 2nd business day, instead of 3-5 as expected. The only hard part was scouring off the rust, with SOS pads, from the stove top before putting on the new burner caps (a simple plug-in)!! This is very important to check on your stove; you could blow-up your house! The gas was escaping under the old burner cap, through the rusted-out portions.

The trickiest part was locating the elusive spark module. I am not certain I took the best route, but not considering all the wrong routes in trial and error, it was the most expedient. Certainly there must have been a single something to remove to get to this frequently faulted part..

Anyhow, thanks to the great part, the stove works really well again.
