How do you open the top section of the stove to examine the igniter lower section and the wiring of the igniter that goes to the spark module. Thanks,

Fernando for Model Number SF387PEYQ4

ANSWER Fernando, Remove the grates, burner caps, burner rings, and drip pans(if supplied). You will need to remove the three(3) small phillips heaed screws on each burner(the screws have a tendency to break off) so you may want to order a few(12) just in case 4372387 . Once you have the screws removed from the burner, lightly press down on the burner, to break the gasket loose under the cooktop. There are two(2) spring clips along the front edge of the cooktop and manifold cover panel, with a flat bladed tool(putty knife) press in on the spring clip and lift uop on the corner of the cooktop. Once you raise the cooktop, you'll have access to everything, igniters, spark module, wires , etc. Thanks and Good Luck
