How is the stovetop attached, enabling removal/replacement of the element?

Jonathon S for Model Number RF377PXXW2

ANSWER Jonathon, Heres some information that should help you out. "1. Turn off the electrical supply going to the range. 2. Open the oven door. 3. Remove the two cooktop bracket screws from the bottom front of the cooktop. 4. Pull the cooktop forward far enough to unhook it from the top of the range. 5. Lift the front of the cooktop and rest it against the control panel. CAUTION: Be careful that the cooktop does not accidentally fall forward. 6. To remove an element and limiter: a) Remove the wires from the element and limiter terminals. b) Remove the element bracket screw (shown above) for the element and limiter you are servicing. c) If you are removing the center element and limiter, remove the screw from the hot surface indicator bracket and remove the indicator. d) Carefully lift the bottom of the bracket just far enough to remove the element. NOTE: If you are removing an element at the top of the bracket, remove the lower element first, lay it on top of the range, and then remove the top element from the bracket. e) Remove the screws from the limiter and remove it from the element. NOTE: Be careful when you remove the limiter that you do not break the sensor tube." This information covers several different models, but you should have enough information to repair the range. Good Luck and Thanks
