What steps do I take to get the broken top out?
ANSWER Pauline, Had a little difficulty with the model number you supplied, but I'm pretty sure this will help yopu out. " The procedure for servicing the smooth glass cooktop and surface elements is the same as in previous models. Remove power to the range. The front of the cooktop can be lifted by removing the two screws that secure it to the range chassis ( open the oven door). With the cooktop in the raised position the surface heating elements, warmer zone element and their wiring connections are accessible. The top can be held open by using
a wood or plastic prop rod approximately 28 inches long. In the photos below a 1” diameter wooden dowel is used. Use caution not to
damage the oven insulation blanket when placing the prop rod. Before removing the element be sure to note the locations of the element mounting clips in the support channel slot. The replacement element must be installed in the same position. Before the element can
be removed from the support channel the locking tab on the mounting clip must be closed by squeezing shut with a pair of pliers. After the repair is complete the tab can be re-opened by using an awl or similar instrument. Remove the mounting screw that secures the element support channel to the cooktop.Carefully pull the support channel away from the cooktop far enough to disengage the element mounting
clips from the channel. Slide the element out from between the support channel and the cooktop. Reinstall or replace the element by reversing steps." Thanks and Good Luck.
