So, looking around I see I can purchase a brand new replacement from Scamp
for $130. BUT….having never worked with propane
appliances I'm wondering how difficult it would be to replace it myself.
Has anyone out there replaced their stove top, how difficult is it and do you have any hints to help?
It is about a 2 on the DIY scale of 1-10 (1 being the easiest).
Shut off the propane
and disconnect the line at the tank.
Remove the two screws which hold the top on the stove.
Remove the top.
Remove the screws holding the stove to the counter.
Disconnect the propane line .
Lift out the stove.
Reverse procedure to install new stove.
After installation "snoop" for leaks
at the line connection and at the valves.
You can use a solution of 1 part dishwashing liquid to +- 20 parts water.
If you are not confident, ask a local handyman to do this, The job is way too easy to cost much for labor.
