Unhappy Monarch Gas Range

I have a Monarch combination wood and L.P range stove, Mod.# whk36hw purchased in 1975. It's worked wonderfully for all these years, but now there are some small flames leaking out under the burners. Does anyone know of any source for replacing these burners?

Hello witchery and Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

In my local area and part of the country we do not use such appliances. As a result I am not familar with combo heating and cooking appliances. Best advice and suggestions I can offer is first be sure the problems is the burners.

If the problem is the burners, go to a local stove dealer and or appliances parts store and bring make, model and serial numbers. Purchase parts needed locally to be sure of getting the correct parts and install them correctly.

I'd look at the burners carefully to determine where the leak is occurring.

I'm not familiar with this kind of range.

Are the flames leaking out when the gas is turned on to them?

It might be a gasket that has failed and needs to be replaced.

Perhaps some furnace cement would plug the leak.

In addition to what S/P has mentioned, some burners have a seperate top piece and that piece becomes warped, allowing gas to escape an appear to be a leak. If this is the case and you have trouble finding parts, try using a hi temp rtv to repair.
