Supporting a ceramic cooktop

I just installed a Kenmore 42739 cooktop and fear there is not enough support under it. I installed the retaining brackets as directed (on center sides of cooktop, one screw in bottom of cooktop to attach it to L bracket that attaches to counter and dropped it in so the edge is resting along our tile (about 1/4 inch overhang onto tile). Is this enough to support the weight of things I cook?. Thanks!

Yes. It is. i always feel weary when i see it to however the top is not glass its ceramic so it is a little stronger.if you are in fear wrap tape all the way around the top and tight. if the top is tempered then wrapping the tape around it would make it almost indestructable.

I need the wiring diagram and plug/receptacle specs for kenmore electric cooktp 42732


I believe that if you look on the name plate for the unit , it says that you will need a 30 amp, 220 volt supply circuit . This would be a two pole , 30 amp breaker , a run of # 10-3 cable with ground, and a junction box at the stove top location to make the splices. If you are going to use a plug connection, then a 30 amp 4 wire dryer outlet will give you the connection you need .

Dish towel stuck to ceramic cooktop


When they are really bad, I use a razor blade in one of those scraper holders. Finally a green scrubby with some comet....Once finished polish it with a very good cooktop cleaner and you will be looking good as new.... If I can help further, I am here.

Waiting to hear from you,
