Q:

Kenmore Pro Cook-top problem 79030503601

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
 
Based on the issue, this is an installation problem and not an problem with the cooktop. To begin, take the sheet of plywood back out. The cooktop must be able to draw air in from under the cooktop and cabinet.

The burner flame(s) are snuffing out due to a momentary vacuum being created when the cabinet door(s) are opened. The cooktop needs constant primary air at all times. I suspect your cabinets are sealed too well causing this issue. By sealing up around the power cord and the gas supply line is only compounding the issue. It is critical to NOT restrict or block the air from inside the cabinet. The cook to must be able to draw air from the holes located under cooktop at all times. One solution is to cut some vent holes inside the cabinet in the side panels or cut an opening in the cabinet doors and installing a grill over the openings. In the installation instructions it states "Make sure the flow of combustion and ventilation air to the cooktop is unobstructed."
 
I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

model # 79030503601 need MEASUREMENTS OF THE OVERLAP FOR SIDES AND BACK OF RANGE

A:

You may already have the dimensions shown in the image below. The overlay on each side will normally be around 3/8". The back will have about the same overlay (around 3/8"). That dimension will vary based on the exact cabinet cut-out dimensions. If you need more help, let us know.

Q:

Below counter top clearences for Kenmor Pro cooktop model 79030503601

A:

There will not be significant heat transmitted through the lower part of that burner box in this gas cook top since the burner flames transmit all of the heat upward. The only components inside that burner box are gas tubing, burner orifice holder components and spark igniter components. That is why there is not a clearance specification between the sides of the burner box and the sides of the cabinets under the counter top. As long as the sides of the burner box fit down into the cabinet cut-out, the cook top will be installed properly and safely. You may have as little as a 1/16" clearance between the sides of that burner box and the sides of the cabinets. This will allow the cook top to be installed and removed properly. You probably already have the cut-out specifications provided in the image below. That drawing show that a width of 35 1/8" is needed between the cabinets.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
