Burner or Drip Bowls - Electric Range

Possible Solutions

Cleaning Burner Drip Bowls:

IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off, and the cooktop is cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products.

Food spills containing acids, such as vinegar and tomato, should be cleaned as soon as the entire appliance is cool. These spills may affect the finish.

NOTE: Coil elements are self-cleaning; do not immerse them in water.

To remove coil elements:

  1. Push in the edge of the coil element toward the receptacle, and then lift it enough to clear the burner bowl.
  1. Pull the coil element straight away from the receptacle.
  1. Lift out the burner bowl.

To replace the coil element: 

  1.  Line up openings in the burner bowl with the coil element receptacle.
  1. Holding the coil element as level as possible, slowly push the coil element terminal into the receptacle.
  2. When the terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as it will go, push down the edge of the coil element opposite the receptacle.
