Whirlpool scs3017 Relocating cooktop burners
« on: October 15, 2008, 04:37:48 PM »

Hello everyone,
I just purchase one Whirlpool SCS3017rs04 cooktop, and would like to know if it is possible to move the small front burner to the rear, and bring the larger rear burner to the front?
Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
JT

No, the burner orifices and routing of the burners cannot be altered on this model. There are different sized cutouts for each burner dimension on the main top. No way to make them interchange.

Thank you very much for your quick reply Repair-man.
Too bad these cannot be relocated! I guess we'll have to learn how to live with them as they are!
