I am trying to lift the cooktop, and it moves like a fraction of an inch up and stops - something is preventing it.

What do I do to get under the cooktop?


Thanks in advance!

I have been looking at the GE website, and found the manual - it seems that I have what they call "sealed burner assemblies" and I am not supposed to lift the top.

So what the heck do you do if you get a mess down there that needs cleaning?

What the heck is a sealed burner assembly, anyway?

All right - I think I see why you can't lift the top. The gas line is actually attached to the range top. If you were to lift it, you'd rip out the gas line.

This is ridiculous. If you unscrewed the attachment holding the gas line in place, you could lift the top.

I guess you're really screwed if you spill something down there, or an igniter goes bad, etc.

Thanks!  That was exactly what I was thinking of.

Worked great.  Got everything clean.
