I would like to remove the stove top on my 1977 Scamp so I can clean underneath it. Can anyone tell me how to do this. If I remove the drawer underneath the stove there are two screws on the front of the metal box that holds the stove. Do I need to unscrew these to take the stove top off? Any help would be appreciated.

The stove top should just pry off. Those screws down in the drawer space are probably the ones that hold the body of the stove in place. It depends which brand it is, but you may have to pull the knobs off first. Happy cleaning, and trails.

I don't know what brand of model of stove is in a 1977 Scamp, but my Brown Stove Works top is held on by spring clips. In the case of my range (oven and 4-burner stove), there are two clips in the front, and after lifting the front the top panel hinges on pins at the back, then lifts off of them. Other models of stovetop from the same maker have just one spring clip on each side. The clips are a tubular pin, split lengthwise, that plunges down into a hole in a bracket in the casing of the stove.

Here's part of the illustration of the two-clip version from the Brown manual - it's not clear, but perhaps it's helpful...

The burner is floating in space because this is one of those "exploded" drawings, showing all of the parts pulled away from each other.

By the way, Chris, thanks for asking about this. While checking the manual for the top clip description, I think I found why my oven door does not seem to be mounted correctly (it seems it was half-removed by the previous owner).

And Donna D. - yes, this manual will be headed your way (on paper, via snail mail) for the Document Center, when I finish assembling a set of copies.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Thanks all. It was a Coleman cooktop help by two sort of pin style clips, one on either side. Once I took a good look with a flashlight underneath, it gave me the courage to try a good yank. It worked . I did discover a small (and thankfully abandoned) wasps' nest under the stove , which was otherwise remarkably clean.

Thanks again,
