My burner bowls and grates need to be replaced as I can not get them clean. Do you need to replace the bowl seal when you replace the bowl or can you re-use the existing seal? How do you remove the ceramic ignitor from the bowl?
Yes it is a good idea to replace the burner bowl seal at the same time. In a lot of cases when you remove the bowl, the seal will be damaged or swell causing it to not be able to reseat properly. Once the burner bowl is out and the igniter wire is disconnected you should be able to just push the igniter out.
Help! I am having a very difficult time putting new seals under burner bowl. Any tips?
The way to put the seals on is once the drip pan is removed you would put the seal on the drip pan and lower it down into the opening. You will have to make sure that you keep hold of the seal to make sure it seats properly.
