Cooktop fix?

Our cooktop has a black grate that has four rubber grommets that hold it in place. Recently I noticed two of the four are gone. Anyone else have this problem?

I have also lost or had these fall apart. While you still have one, drop into an RV parts shop and get some spares. If I recall correctly, there are a few different styles.

Most if not all rv parts places have them. They seem to be a all the time replaceable item. I keep four extra just to have.

Anyone think of screwing a nut to the bottom to make it permanent no need for the grommets

After having many of the grommets push through the cooktop, I decided to create my on "fix".

1) 1" OD washer with 3/8 " or 7/16" ID hole (may have to drill out hole a 'bit)
2) 3/4" OD bushing with 3/8" diameter bushing to "push through" washer hole.
3) make sure bushing will fit through washer hole and be long enough to go through the stovetop holes so as not to allow grate to slide around.

You will still have enough "play" in bushing hole to move grate up/down if it needs to be "leveled" somewhat.

It's funny, but Magic Chef doesn't sell them anymore as replacement parts. Camco jumped on the wagon and offers a high temp silicone replacemnt that works on all Magic Chefs made for at least the past ten years.

I just bought two sets of four for about $4 per set.

Fixing igniter might be simple. Mine stopped working, and all I had to do was lift the cooktop and re-insert the wire that had come out.
