When attempting to remove the screws around the burner assembly, the screws all broke off. What is the best way to remedy/attach the burner to the top?
Answer Mike, You'll need to order the burner mounting screws 316069301 (at least quantity of 12) Then drill out the screw shaft(s) in the burner head assembly(s). You'll have to be careful and not drill out the hole in the burner.
How do I take out the old burner assembly and replace it with this new one? The stove top is a sealed burner type. Do I have to lift up the whole stove top?
Answer Hi Elle. You need to remove the burner caps, grates and all burner screws. Lay them aside so you can install them perfectly as removed. Remove all burner lower pans. Then remove the door. Look up under the top front and remove 2-hidden screws to allow you to lift the top. Use the prop rod or a wooden stick to support the top underside. Be careful to not damage the insulation with the support. Then all of the burners will "under" the top. You can now unscrew the gas supply tube from the burner needing changed. Make sure to snug the tube to the burner for no chance of leaks. The igniter now will unscrew from the bottom of the burner. Remember to reuse the burner orifice from the original burner. Thank You.
I have a frigidaire stove I bought used. The burners work well, they have electric lighters that also work well as well as the oven. the problem is when the burners are on high it starts to smell very strongly of gas. also when I use the oven the smell of gas is very strong (I have not used the oven again for this reason) there is no smell when the stove is not in use, it is only when a burner is first lit and on a high setting. there is usually a faint whisteling sound that accompanies the smell. I have just been using the burners at a low setting. My husband tried checking it out to see where the gas isleaking but we just can't figure it out. we thought we might just buy new burners, but we don't want to buy anything before we figure out waht the problem is. if you have any idea what the problem might be I would really appreciate it. and one more thing, when I use the burns it makes the bottom of my pots and pans very black.
Answer Katie, It sounds like you need to convert the range to LP gas supply, or vice versa. The whistling, gas odor, and soot on the bottom of the pans, indicate an improper fuel air mix causing all of your indicated issues. You'll need to determine the type gas supply you have, and check and convert the range. Thanks
