Question Absolutely necessary?

to work on one of the burners?
What kind of "work"? Most service to them is done from the top unless access to its gas supply is needed.

How do I lift up the stove [top]
Your model has 'sealed' burners. The burner bases are secured to the top with screws around their perimeter. All of those burner bases would have to have their screws removed first and there might be additional screws for the top under the front lip of the cooktop.

Do NOT attempt to raise the top without first disconnecting each of the burners bases from it. Damage to the gas supply tubing can result otherwise.

The burner base screws frequently become 'seized' in place with age making them difficult (and sometimes impossible) to remove. If the screw heads get stripped or the screws break in the process of removal, the burner base(s) would then usually have to be replaced... along with each of the damaged screws. It is best to try to avoid tampering with their mounting unless it is absolutely necessary.

Thank you, the Burner Ignitor 316011200is cracked and I was going to replace it. But now I don't think it is worth it.

Default Silly screws.

This is a REAL problem with low profile screws. My model Frigidaire was only 7 years old but the ignitor died.

The first screw head just snapped of. No pressure at all.
The second one I think was only attached via baked on carbon.
The third (all on one burner) would not budge. But didn't want to
break it so I soaked it with everything possible 3 times. WD40
Over Cleaner and an oil based cleaner.
STill nada and then really torqued it and snapped off as well.
One burner 3 broken screws. 3 burners and 9 screws to go.

End reason 100% broken screws. Well. Since that mean an 11$ easy out
MIGHT work on the ultra small screws. I decide to clamp each burner on a jig and ran a very nice high speed metal drill into each. Then by hand carefully retapped each screw to the size I wanted (can't remember now but still real small) then had to grind down the heads so that the cover tray didn't hit them.

Total time 4 hours labor. (after figuring out what to do)
12 screws at .11cents each at ace. (had the tap)
3.89 for a new metal drill bit.
Had the grinder.

12.89 for the ignitor. All done happy. Pissed at ultra stupid design by
these people.

OTHER CHOICE was buy new sealed burner that come with screws at 30.54 EACH.

BTW even IF the screws come out with an easy-out and don't need retapping everybody want .08 up to 2.38 per screw and shipping at about 8-12$ for the order or inother words 8.50-$41.51for 12 screws!

Sears was the worst at 8 for shipping 2.38 a screw and for 12 screws the shipping went up to 12.95 which was 41.51 for 12 screws mailed to me!

READ other people work.
and then DIYS

ON the front corners, you can push in a clip by using a butter knife or some such thing, one at a time, and lift the top a little. That will give you the space to wiggle the ignitor connection wires, which may be all it takes. When you lift the top, the burners are still connected with aluminum gas tubes so don't break them. If you need to take it all the way up, Remove the burner mounting screws with a quarter inch hex
