Gas stove is smokin'

After turning on our stove we noted smoke coming out from underneath the stove top. It's hopefully shown in the attached picture that one of the wired, starter sparker, gizmos has the rubber partially melted away. This is the burner that we had started to use before seeing the smoke and ceasing. We are not very handy and should have this fixed by an RV tech but wonder if we could use the other burners safely. Any thoughts and opinions from those with some expertise will be much appreciated.

You might want to have it checked first.

The burn is because flame blew back under the burners and toasted the wire. There may be spiderwebs or some other blockage causing the issue. I would not use other burners until you can be sure they are actually working properly.

And that will be the plan. Thank you both for your input. We can get by with the microwave and our wonderful small Weber Grill

Great. Looks like there is serious flame in the wrong place--not a safe situation. Let us know what you find out.

Mine has a felt/asbestos like gasket that goes between the twist off burner head and the tube from the control knob. are yours missing?

They are fragile and I ordered new ones after I fought with those sparker wires shorting out. Any rv parts place with dometic can order them.

Looks as if the burner heat shield may not be shielding it from the extreme heat output once lite. Use a heat shield or check the model number for recalls. But stop using it until you know what it is and resolve it before using it. Safety 1st.

CDONA called it correctly. We have the same gasket. An intact is shown on one of the other burners in the attached photo. On the malfunctioning burner the gasket was torn and split open. The technician in a small town in Northwest Ohio found the problem but did not have replacement parts, either the gasket or the igniter wire. His opinion was that if we did not turn on the gas to the affected burner it was safe to use the other two runners. We will get the repair done and replace all the gaskets soon. Once again, thanks for all the Airforums' expert help.
