Burner Gasket

Help wanted. I have a Maytag cooking range model CGR3740ADH.
The gasket on the inside of one of the four burners is broken.
I believe Maytag does not produce these gaskets anymore.
The new Maytag burners do not require gaskets. Can I use
the old burner without the gasket? Can somebody help me to
locate a gasket for this?

Hello: Venkatesh. Welcome to the Gas Appliances forum and the Do It Yourself Web Site.

Do not attempt to use the burner without some type of gasket between the parts. If it where to be a safe situation originally when the appliance was made, there would not be a gasket there now.

If the local appliance stores do not have the gasket, one can be hand made from automotive gasket material. This type of product is sold in small rolls and can be used in a situation such as the one you are having with the OEM part not available.
