This is a cook top model and does not tilt up. How do I replace the unit receptacle? Do I remove Part 2, where the 4 control knobs are located to get to the wire harness? Is this part supposed to be easily removed?
Answer Service Guy, no it's not going to be very easy, You'll need to lift the unit out of the counter opening, and support it with a couple of 1X2 in. wood strips. remove the frame, elements and element receptacle screws, then remove the perimeter screws holding the cooktop to the burner box, then lift the cook top up and off the frame. Then you can remove prt #2 and !0 and access the switches and wiring.
I have determined I need a AP2021559 surface unit receptacle. I cannot see how to get the stove top up to do the repair. It doesn't seem to lift up like the one in your video. Does it have screws or something? Thanks.
Answer Hello Linda,
There are only a couple of ways that the main tops are ever attached. Some have three or four screws going up into the front edge of the main top that are visible only when you open the door. Some have spring clips which have to be depressed with a paint scraper as slight pressure is applied upward on each side respectively. Others are only setting there. This one either has three or four screws above the door or is just stuck down from years of grease build-up.
