Is the answer for the glass top above for gas or electric range?
Part# AP3583632 is for electric range. I just order one and it seems like the answer is for gas range. Please verify. Thanks.
ANSWER Hello Mark. That is gas here is the electric. The front of the cooktop
can be lifted by removing the two screws that
secure it to the range chassis. 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. 1. 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. 2. Carefully remove the wires from the element.
Take note of the terminal identifi cation on the element
terminal block for each wire connection. 3. 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. 4. Remove the mounting screw that secures the
element support channel to the cooktop. 5. 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
1-5. 6. Once the elements are removed, you can lift off and replace the main top 318223626.
