I have a Kenmore Elite range with a broke glass cooktop. I would like to but the replacement but Sears notes the the part # is 316251975 while your site notes #316456233 replaces the previous number. I note though that it is out of stock. Could you tell me if 315456233 is an improved part over the original or is it preferable to go with the original? Thank you for your help, Randy.
Answer Hello Randy! Sears seems to still have the original 316251975 in stock. We are now carrying the replacement as we ran out of stock of the original. The 316456233, our part number 316456233 is a redesigned top. At this time, our Estimated Time of Arrival is 04/09. That date falls on a Saturday and our warehouses are closed on the weekends. It is possible the item may come in stock on the next business day. Please keep in mind that this is an Estimated time of arrival and is subject to change at any time the manufacture is not capable of keeping their promise date with our company. Thanks!
