Whirlpool Gold ceramic cooktop removal.

Putting in new countertops in my kitchen and have to take out the ceramic cooktop- its a Whirlpool Gold black ceramic- its hard-wired to its own box underneath the cabinets. Looks easy enough- but I'm no electrician, and not a fan of being shocked! 
I got the cutting the power part- what's next? Please keep in mind, I have to put it right back after I put the granite in. 
Thank you in advance for your time.

    Got- countertops in. I figured it out myself. I should get a job doing this... did the plumbing too, and no hairs in the drain to pull out.


    Huge wuss when it comes to electric shock, but yeah--- installed the granite countertops- removed the cooktop, reinstalled the cooktop, and wired it... piece of cake... charged my Mom... $0.00


    God Bless.

The safest way for a home owner to do this is turn the main breaker off to the house that is the safest way. Then poll the cover plate off the box in th wall with the two screws. not the screws on the round conduit. Then pull out the wire nuts that hold the wires together and un screw them to separate wires I would label them so you know what ones went together. After top is in just reverse the proses above.

One of the electric burners on our induction cooktop is misfiring and making noise. Who can fix these things? Is it better to buy a new one?


I recommend to buy a new one, induction cooktop prices have come down a lot and there are good ones available for about $1000. FOr me, the only problem with putting a new one in was the hole in the countertop was too small for the new cooktop (Viking has a smaller hole requirement than most other cooktops). So be sure to measure the hole in the countertop before you buy a new one so you can buy one that fits.

What's best tu glue my cooktop on my granite countertop?


I don't think I'd glue it down permenantly. I just had to replace the ceramic glass on mine (a JED 8430 ABD) after it cracked. Thankfully, it wasn't glued down so I could replace it pretty easily (ordered part directly from Jenn Air). But some sort of seal to keep food out from under the cooktop would be nice. I just wouldn't go permenant. The fact that you have to tape the down draft to the external vent should keep the cooktop in one place (plus its own weight).

I can not separate the glass cooktop from the granite surface.


alot of installers will use a silicone glue to "seal" the unit to the countertop. what happens is that means you cant get it out without cutting the glue off first.
it could also be that the unit is very tight in the countertop.
also did you remove the "hold down" screws from underneath the unit first??? there should be a screw on each side below the unit.

one more thing... do you have a gas line under your counter? if not be sure you can get a gas line to it before you try to remove the old unit. most homes have a finished ceiling under the kitchen and it would be almost impossible to install a new gas line if its not already there.

Removing and reinstalling


There should be removabe clamps attatched to the bottom of the cooktop which tighten with a screw to the bottom of your countertop. Loosen the screws to the countertop, then remove the screws that attach the brackets to the cooktop. The cooktop should then be able to be pulled out.
