Oil spill

Customer (PF13S160EI): 

Hello!  I hope you are well. I have a question for you if you have time.  I was deep-frying fish last night and had an oil spill onto the burner of my stove, now half of the ring does not burn.  Will this fix itself over time?  Should I unscrew the top plate to clean it?  Thank you for any help!


I guess you mean half of the burner has no flame.  Yes you need to unbolt the top plate to clean the burner and also make sure all holes on the top plate are through and clean.   I guess the oil just occupies half of the holes.  If not cleaned they might be harden in the holes. Hope this helps.


That does help! I’ll do it!  Thank you!

I couldn’t get the burner ring out. I unscrewed the screws, but they wouldn’t come out all the way, though they’re very very loose.  But it seems like the burner plate is attached inside to the entire unit.  Could I try to clean it without taking the plate off?


There are two nuts underneath the burner above the base plate.  Were you able to loose those couple nuts?   After loose these nuts, you should be able to pull the bolts off from top of the burner plate. 


Aaah! Thank you, I’ll try that!
