I broke my ceramic top and want to replace it. It is set into a marble surface. Is this something that I should be able to do easily? Do I just pry out the old unit or would I have to remove the oven and get to it from below?

Harry Tangalakis for Model Number KECC 508G black

ANSWER Hello Harry, you are missing the last few letters in your model number but since you said it was black, I am going to assume you have KECC508G BL0 or BL1, BL2, BL3. All of which are installed the same way. Your replacement cooktop assembly would be 4455552. Checking your installation instructions, the top should not be fastened down with anything. Again, I say "should not". I guess since it's already broken you can't hurt the glass by prying up but be careful not to damage any other parts, elements, etc. Once the cooktop is out, you should be able to remove the glasstop by removing the screws around the burner box. Thanks!
