How hard would it be for me, or my husband to replace the glass top on our range? I am thinking since the top lifts up (I have never done it) for "cleaning" it most likely is attached to a hinge in the rear, maybe screwed to it or something like that and we could unscrew (or what have you) the old and place the new in its place. Without any electricial connections? Am I right or is there more to it?
Answer Hello Patti! The cooktop is part number 5706X352-09. Here are the instructions for diassembly from the manufacure, hope it helps!
Disconnect appliance from the power source. Open the oven door and remove two 1/4" hex head screws that secure the top to a flange located just above the oven door. Screws are located at the front corners of the top.
NOTE: There are no hinges holding the top in place. Once the screws are removed and the connector is disconnected, the top is loose and can be lifted off.
After the screws have been removed, grasp the top with both hands firmly, and pull the range top forward. Disconnect the multi-pin wiring harness connector. Lift top upward and remove.
Replace the new top in reverse order.
