the bottom seal on two of my burners (there are our) came loose due to what seemed to be an explosion which blew off all four knobs at once while operating the unit. Could this be the result of a defective regulater?
Answer Gabriel, Wouldn't really expect the regulator to be the issue. If the unit is installed properly the regulator 74007704 would be outside and underneath the cooktop. The regulator does have a "vent" and can release any excess pressure due to an increase of gas supply pressure, but the odor would be underneath, in the cabinet. It sounds more like a gas leak from the manifold pipe 74001348 or one of the gas line connections under the glass cook top. Also remove the regulator and check the attachment end that is screwed onto the manifold, it may be cracked.
That is good to know, I thought I would be getting the entire top including the elements. How then, do I go about removing the glass top from the elements and the rest of the frame?
