Hello Mike. I see the difference that you are describing. You should find screws on the top of the burner heads that need to be removed. The screws on the cooktop in that link are down on the cooktop. Other than that, the procedure should be about the same. Let us know if you need more help.

If that diagram matches your range, then you should find those screws. I don't see them on the parts diagram but the parts diagram is not always perfectly accurate. There is a chance that I just don't see the screws on the parts diagram. Let us know if you don't find the screws and you need more help.

There may be spring clips that are on positioned differently than the ones shown in that link for a previous answer provided above. The spring clips may be on the very corners of the front edge of the cooktop. Try pushing a putty knife into the front corner under the cooktop from the side of the range to release a clip if it is in that location. That may help you remove the cooktop. Let us know if you need more help.

Q:

Kenmore Gas Range

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details; it sounds like the oven gas shut off lever is in the OFF position on the gas pressure regulator.

At the back of the range where the gas supply is connected is a gas pressure regulator. Located on the gas pressure regulator is a gas shut off lever. If the lever is in the OFF position; it will prevent gas from flowing to the oven safety valve preventing the bake and broil from igniting. The shut off lever needs to be in out position as shown in the image below. This is likely the problem. NOTE: The shut off lever will only shut the gas flow off to the oven safety valve but not from the surface burners.

This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.
