There are no screws on the outside of the burners. There are some metal pegs that are fixed so I would have to break them off to get out the burners but then my stove would not work. I might be able to send you a photo if that would help. Thanks.
any thoughts on how I can remove them and still put the burners back in place afterwards? Maybe I need to buy new screws? Also, I assume that I need to do all four, not just the front left burner that needs a new ignitor. Correct?
The need to be ground off with a grinding wheel. This is a problem because the burners will have screw studs stuck in them and you may not be able to get them out. This means 4 new burner heads will be needed. You ma want to let this go and use a lighter on that burner to avoid all the expense.
That is what we have been doing and I think you are right that it is not worth the expense for one burner. Maybe when the rest start to fail we will tackle the larger project. Since it is the front burner and I have small hands, do you think there is a chance I could get the broken ignitor out and the new one in without lifting the top beyond the few inches that it rises now?
(again, thanks for your expertise and time)
it appears that the single screw holding in the ignitor is also corroded beyond use and so I am giving up (not without a fight!) It kind of makes me mad that Frigidaire does not make it easier to lower the burners but perhaps on newer models they have addressed this issue.
I appreciate you time, effort and consideration. I will rate you well.
