Post Is this needed in my stovetop?

Hi. I have a Kenmore range top stove that we let some beans boil over on. When they did they made a horrible mess and in the clean-up process we found that their is a piece of insulation under the knob wiring that was soaked and smells of beans now. Is this insulation needed for safe operation or is it possible to use the stove without it? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

I'm sure there is a good reason for it, to say keep heat in oven or deflect heat away from knobs/wires.

Why not take out what you can and replace it? You namy have to get some appliance grade insulation of same type and density. An appliance repair shop could maybe get you some.
