Can a do it yourselfer replace the glass cooktop? My son dropped a glass and cracked it. Thanks
Answer Hello Kurt,
This is not a difficult job. Make sure the power is off or dis-connected to the unit before beginning. Remove the two screws threaded straight up toward the ceiling that you can only access by opening the unit door. Raise the top and unplug the connector near the rear. Lower the top part way and unhook the rear from the hinge points. Flip the maintop over and place on a protected work surface. Transfer the elements to the new cook top, making sure the clips are in the corrects positions so the elements will be inside the circles on the cook top. This is most easily accomplished by not removing any wires, but by un-screwing the brackets and moving all elements at once. Also check the rear of the old cook top for two small plastic feet that keeps the cook top level for proper cooking results, (keeps the food from going to one side of the pan). Re-assembly is in the reverse order.
