How to lift up glass top for heating element replacement.

Most of these units have a few screws underneath the top at the front lip where the top of the door closes. Remove the screws and you should be able to lift the top up. Most of them also have a metal bar you pull down or up depending on the make and model on the side to hold the top up once you open it

How to fix GE cooktop error code F116

First, i tried turning on/off power with no luck. if you get this code you will probably just need to replace the LF burner, which is pretty easy to do. i researched and found GE OEM parts from appliance zone. info is below: Items
1 Stove / Oven / Range Radiant Element Lf - WB30T10080 (OEM) @ $170.67 = $170.67
Sub-Total: $170.67
Shipping: $6.95 Standard Shipping (6.95) USD Total: $177.62

Once i received then new burner i just replaced it and all is working fine, no error code!
First i turned off all power and removed my cooktop from my counter and unscrewed the sheet metal shroud on the bottom, only remove the screws around the perimeter of shroud closets to glass, they are small black Phillips screws, like 15 screws total. i didn't disconnect any wires from the unit to junction box, you should be able to leave all that alone if you have a long enough connection. i made the mistake of leaving the cooktop upside down when removing the metal shroud, don't do this. there are springs on posts that keep the burners tight to the glass and will fall out (if up side down). leave the cooktop right side up and just lift off the glass once you remove all screws, when lifting the glass off, there is one plug at the circuit board attached to glass that you will need to unplug to completely remove the glass and set aside. you will see the 4 burners, i took a picture of the unit with glass removed to make sure i could reference any wires when i was re-installing new burner. i unplugged all wires to LF burner and unplugged the harness from the circuit board. once i removed old burner i noticed the new burner doesn't include the 2 tabs you need. i removed them from the old burner and made sure to install them in the same location on the new burner. I than plugged in all wires and harness back into the unit and set burner on posts with springs. carefully replace glass and don't forget to plug the glass top circuit board back into the unit circuit board. re-attach metal shroud and screws, drop in and done! there are instructions to re-calibrate the new burner which is probably a good idea, i didn't and it is working just fine! good luck

How do i replace belt

On this model in order to replace the belt first disconnect power to the dryer. Looking at the front of the unit in the seam between the front panel and the dryer top, use a putty knife to press in & release the spring clips in the right and left sides of this seam to release the top panel. Lift the panel & rest it against the wall. Reach in & remove the 2 screws holding the front panel to the side panels. Once you have removed the screws, lift the front panel up slightly to remove the complete front panel from the stationary clips at the bottom of the dryer. Be careful with the wires going to the door switch. Either remove them from the switch or simply lean the front panel against the right side of the cabinet. Next, lift the drum and slide the new belt around the drum to the mark made by the previous belt on the drum. Be sure the ribs are facing down. Part number for the drive belt is 31531589 which over the years crossed to 341241. On your knees, reach back by the motor and idler assembly and lift the idler pulley tension arm to route the belt allowing the idler to take up the slack in the drive belt. Reassemble and dryer some clothing.

The glass became dirty in the inside face I want to clean the glass from the inner side how to disassemble the unit in order to get access to the glass

Of course don't do this if you can avoid it, but I found it somewhat simple (on my 3rd or 4th try). For some reason my scanner came from the factory with a dirty inside glass, and even though it didn't seem to affect the scanning, it bugged me enough to want to clean it. So here's what I did ...

1) lock the lamp (switch on the bottom)

2) open the lid and remove the 2 screws - one left, one right.
(The one in the middle can stay in.)

3) Here's the tricky part - the lid and glass and framing around the glass can slide out toward the back (or top ... toward the screws). Only go out an inch or two.

4) Lift the lid from the front - glass and all and try not to separate the lid from the flat wire attachment. This is designed to come out, so it's okay if it does - it's just hard to get back in!

5) clean the glass. It is glass, so I used isopropol alcohol. Clean with a lent free cloth and make sure all the streaks are gone.

6-9) reverse steps 4 through 1 to reassemble.

10) clean the top surface same as step 5 (prior to plugging it back in of course).

I was afraid I may have been too ******* it when I had to re-insert the wire (mine came out during step 4), but it seems to be working. Hope so because this is a great little scanner. ;)

Hope this helps.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.You have to lift the unit up from the counter use some boards across the counter to support it and remove the screws from around the unit under the glass lip. On some units there are screws under the vent grille also. After removing the screws lift the whole top off.Thats all you have to do.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop

First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.

I should say that it very dangerous to service glass appliances if you are not trained. If you have any question of your abilities stop here and call the pro's. Although I think I can help. 1st turn off the glass and disconnect it from valve. 2nd unplug 110v plug. Remove the cook top from counter and lay it top down on a towel. There is a series of screws around the perimeter of bottom. Remove these screws. The bottom should lift away allowing full access to all components. hope this helps and good luck.

HP 2210 has a problem with the inside of the glass so photo/doc are fuzzy and unclear when scanned. Is there a way to clean the inside of the glass?

there are 3 screws, one's at the left side of the unit on the top corner (this is the one that's visible), the other 2 are under the silver cover, which houses the dial panel and the LCD, in order to remove the panel you have to use a flat head screw driver or something like that, and pop out the dial cover starting from the top right corner then the left side and eventually the bottom part, and then, using something that can fit through the square hole near the bottom of the dials under the cover which you've just removed, press the lock inside and simultaneously pull(slide) the panel towards the front of the unit, there then you will see the two other torx screws

Good Luck
