I boiled something over and an igniter started clicking. this went on for several mins then I heard something sizzle, loud. then no clicking and none of the igniters worked. would like to order parts and repair myself . not even sure how to open unit up to access the parts. Thanks

ANSWER Michael, On a unit this old, it's do able, chances are you're going to need some additional burner parts and whichever switches or wires you find damaged/shorted out. Basically, you're going to need to remove the burner knobs, grates and caps. You will then need to remove the three(3) small phillips head screws holding the burner drip pan to the burner base(the screws will probably snap off), you can then lift the glass top off the burner box(you will probably need a putty knife to help unstick the glass). Lift the glass off and you'll have access to all the ignition switches , ignition wiring and spark module 12001596 You may want to order more than 1 (one) switch in case, 7101P286-60 screws, at least 12 of those and both glass seals 8270P088-60 and 12400021 12400008 It sounds worse than it is, its actually a pretty simple & easy repair. Thanks and Good Luck
