For Whirlpool Maintop Glass (Part Number: AP4095442)

I installed a new glass cook top (74007072) to replace the old one that was cracked. However, only 3 of the 4 corners rests completely flat on the granite at one time (the other is slightly raised causing it not to rest secure(it wobbles slightly). I can't see any reason why it won't sit flat. I can't think of what I can do differently or any adjustments that can be made. Any ideas? Would a little silicon be ok/ appropriate?

ANSWER Hello Johnny, Here are the steps you will want to take to get unit level: A) Verify Burner Box is square. 1. Remove knobs. 2. Remove unit from installation position. 3. Place unit, cooktop side down, on a protected surface. NOTE: Be very careful not to damage the valve or infinite switch stems on the cooktop. 4. Loosen the screws securing the main top to the burner box. NOTE: This will allow the burner box to relax and relieve any twist that may have occurred during manufacturing or transit. 5. Tighten screws loosened in step 4 securing main top to burner box. 6. Return unit to installation position (removed in step 2). 7. Reinstall knobs removed in step 1.
