    Default Need help with cooktop removal Kenmore 79072719212

    I have an igniter on our Kenmore 79072719212 gas range that isn't working.

    I have removed all of the burners and all of the connecting screws to the jets under the cooktop but I can't seem to get the cooktop off.

    I understand that there are spring clips that need to be released but I haven't been able to locate them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Phil

    I found the answer myself and thought I'd post it.

    This model does not have spring clips. Instead, it has two screws which bind the top to the front brackets. These screws are under the manifold panel (the cover for the knobs which turn on the burners). To remove the cover, open or remove the oven door. Under the bottom edge of the cover you will see two screws on each side. One of each pair will be directly attached to the cover (the other one is in a cutout). Remove both of those screws then remove the burner knobs and lift the manifold cover off from the bottom.

    Once you have this off, you will see 1 screw on each side holding the stove top to the brackets. remove those screws, slide the top slightly toward you and lift.
