How to Install part 316249037- Manifold Panel 79077443800 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you.


To remove the main top fifi rst remove the grates,
burner caps and burners. Using a ¼” socket
wrench or nut driver remove the mounting
screws at each burner orifice assembly.

Insert a putty knife or similar tool between the
main top and manifold panel near the outside
of the front corner. Push the putty knife toward
the rear to release the maintop mounting clip.
Repeat for both sides.

When the mounting clips are released the front
edge of the cooktop can be lifted. Make sure
that the orififi ce assembly does not bind in the
cooktop when raising the top to remove it from
the range.



Removing Manifold Panel:
  1. Remove the four mounting screws on the underside of the manifold panel. Remove the burner valve control knobs by pulling them straight forward off the valve shafts.
  2. Next remove the three ¼” hex head screws securing the top of the manifold panel and remove the panel.
  3. With the manifold panel removed the surface burner ignitor switches and harness are accessible. The wire harness and switches are replaced as a complete assembly.
  4. To remove the switches and harness from the burner valves loosen the wire twist ties that secure the wire harness to the manifold pipe. Pull forward to unsnap the switch housing from the valve. When replacing the switches make sure that the switches snap securely and lock to the valve body. The slack in the wire harness should lay under the manifold tube and secure with the wire twist ties.
