I know how to access and take apart the stove top. I just was not 100% positive in replacing the valve 316536003 on the stove top of a range, do I need grease or tape?
Answer Leslie, Grease or "tef" tape is not really necessary. All the tube and valve connections are "soft" metal, and sealant is not required. Be very careful when threading the connections together, don't cross thread anything, and make sure the valve mounting screw and gasket are tight, and you'll be fine.
