How do I raise the glass top to get access to the burners?
Answer Hello Chris,
First, dis-continue the power supply to the unit since there is 240Vac under the main top assembly. Then open the door and remove the 2 or 3 screws that retain the main top. These thread straight up toward the ceiling and are blocked by the door if it is in the closed position. When these are removed, the main top can be raised and supported with a wooden spoon or similar non-conductive item. This will allow for testing and part replacement.

Answer Hi Bill. Lift off the door. Remove the 2-front screws that are under the front corners holding it down. Support the top and note all wire connections. Use a cell phone if needed to insure proper replacement of the wires. If you can unbolt the burners and just lay them on top of the inner oven top. Place the burners on the new one so they are centered in correct place. Under the burners there are stamped #'s that you can use as a reference of proper placement. Use a felt marker to help circle mark the numbers if they are hard to see. Just remove the screws on the burner brackets to the top only,not the ones connected directly to the burner if at all possible. When you lift the top you can disconnect the molex wire connector in the back and the green ground screw and wire bonding the top. Then take it to a protected area and flip it upside down. Place the new one right beside it in the same manner. Carefully place the burners as a whole (one fell swoop) so it will transfer the burners easier. Top assy. part # WB62T10621. Thank You.
