I installed a new glass cook top (74007072) to replace the old one that was cracked. However, only 3 of the 4 corners rests completely flat on the granite at one time (the other is slightly raised causing it not to rest secure(it wobbles slightly). I can't see any reason why it won't sit flat. I can't think of what I can do differently or any adjustments that can be made. Any ideas? Would a little silicon be ok/ appropriate?
Answer Hello Johnny,
Here are the steps you will want to take to get unit level:
A) Verify Burner Box is square.
1. Remove knobs.
2. Remove unit from installation position.
3. Place unit, cooktop side down, on a protected surface.
NOTE: Be very careful not to damage the valve or infinite switch stems on the cooktop.
4. Loosen the screws securing the main top to the burner box.
NOTE: This will allow the burner box to relax and relieve any twist that may have occurred
during manufacturing or transit.
5. Tighten screws loosened in step 4 securing main top to burner box.
6. Return unit to installation position (removed in step 2).
7. Reinstall knobs removed in step 1.
Need to replace the glass top on my Jennaire cooktop by Maytag but I cannot figure out the part number I need. Top dimensions are 29 3/4" x 22"
Answer Hello Tracy! For the maintop in black use part number 74007072 and for the maintop in white use part number 74007085. The bisque maintop 74007086 has been discontinued and is no longer available. To install a new maintop you will also need four vinyl tapes part number 71003485. Thanks!
The small inside burner will not go on, only the large front burner get hot. When small burner is turned on, nothing happens. It just went out. Can this be fixed by replacing a part, or should we call a repair person.
Answer Hello Gloria. You will need to test and see if there is power going from the switch 71001166 to the element 12500039. If there is not power coming to the element, you will need to replace the switch. If there is power coming to the element, and it does not work, you will need to replace the element. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
