ventilation air around the burner grate edges.
Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the oven and
cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach or rust

surface burner. A clean burner cap will help prevent poor ignition
and uneven flames. Always clean the burner cap after a spillover
and routinely remove and clean the caps according to the
"General Cleaning" section.

2. Burner base
3. Alignment pins
5. Gas tube opening
Gas tube opening: Gas must flow freely throughout the gas tube
opening for the burner to light properly. Keep this area free of soil
and do not allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other
material to enter the gas tube opening. Protect it from spill overs
by always using a burner cap.
2. Burner ports
Burner ports: Check burner flames occasionally for proper size
and shape as shown above. A good flame is blue in color, not
yellow. Keep this area free of soil and do not allow spills, food,
cleaning agents or any other material to enter the burner ports.

trained repair specialist.

the cap are properly aligned with the burner base.
5. Turn on the burner. If the burner does not light, check cap
alignment. If the burner still does not light, do not service the
sealed burner yourself. Contact a trained repair specialist.
Surface Grates with Locator Pin
(on some models)
The grates located on the left and right side of the cooktop
contain grooves. These grooves must always face inward toward
the control knob panel to hold the grates in place. On some
models, the middle grate must be placed in position first,
followed by the left and right grates.
