Cleaning Fridge Chimney

I've had problems with my fridge not getting cold on gas, I want to remove the cap and clean the chimney. I guess the only way I can think of is drill out the rivets, and pop the cap off, then replace it with sheet metal screws to make it easier to service. I'm assuming there is no other way to do this??

Yep, that's it. You could also remove the cap and buy or devise a brush or rag on the end of a metal rod or stick to swab the inside much like chimney sweeps do.

Thanks. I've been cleaning a lot of fine rust out of the burner, maybe it would eliminate cleaning the burner all season. Hey after 25 years it probably needs it!!!
