Remove top to clean
To remove the top you would have to remove the unit from installation. Then take the screws out on the inside of the vent and the screws from around the perimeter of the unit then lift the main top off.
I am trying to find a whirlpool top burner receptacle kit for 8 inch burner. Is there another one that can interchange with it?
Answer Jan, I was able to locate model RF302BXVW0. Please verify that is your model number before ordering parts. The receptacle is part number 330031 and the large burner is part number 660533. Thanks!
Is there any thermal paste for the connection between the electric coil element and the terminal?
Answer Hello Larry,
There is no paste that would be heat resistant enough to use in this application.
For your top burner receptacle kit 330031, will electrician's tape work as well as the shrink insulator?
The shrink wrap works better as it is more heat resistant once it is shrunk down. The electrical tape would not be a hi temp but could still be used.
The large burners on the cook top are not heating up. the smaller one are heating up. What parts would I need to repair the cook top. The cartridge is A 100, or A 111. The serial # is 30323730
You will want to check the elements to make sure that they are not bad, also check the receptacle which could be bad and last thing to check would be the burner switch to make sure that power is going to the element.
I have a 5 or 6 year old whirlpool stove. How do I lift the top up to clean under the burners?
Answer Hello Mike,
Most gas units have to have the burners removed for the top to be raised. We could give precise directions with a model number from the units' I.D. tag.
I need to know which burner receptacle kit that I need for my model number. It is the large burner I don't know if that makes a difference.
Answer Jeremy, Either 814399 or the [AP3075808} receptacle kit will work in your range. The size of the element doesn't affect the receptacle. Follow the instructions that come with the part, and you'll be fine.
