I might be willing to part with mine for a beer donation...that's one you won't find on servicematters :)

Could you elaborate on what is wrong with your cooktop?

Thank you, thank you, thank you. the link you posted is outstanding.

To clarify what's going on with the cooktop, one of the burner valves was stuck down. I'm sure the previous owner spilled something on it. I bought a new valve and installed it last night. Now I need to look at the gaskets to see if I need to replace them all or just a few.

I also need to clean up the stainless and aluminum in and around the burners. lots of old food debris. Any ideas?

Thanks again. This really helps me out.   :)

Thanks for the link to the service manual. It helped out a lot when I rebuilt the cooktop.

I put it back together and all hooked up yesterday and it works great. The old o-rings and seals were very old and brittle. I had to scrape them off and  then remove the remaining debris with a scotch brite pad and a small stainless detail brush I have. this worked well.

The O-ring kit I bought was interesting to install. Most of the o-rings have been replaced with silicone foam gaskets (probably cheaper to produce), and it took awhile to aline them. I also had an issue with the large o-ring that goes between the large burner head and the stainless cooktop pan. Finally I got it to stay in place.

The instructions said to tighten the venturi to 100 inch pounds. I always do  double take when I see this, since I worked on cars a lot when younger. 100 div by 12 (inches) = 8 foot pounds.

Overall I'm very happy with the cooktop. bought for $350 from a lady who was remodeling, installed a new burner valve ($41) and a new O-ring kit ($82), plus my time. Love it. O0
