Wrong type cooktop securing bracket for tiled cabinet
The securing brackets that came with the cooktop are for an all wood cabinet. Our cabinet has top layer of tile, 1 inch of mortar, then wood. I need some kind of adjustable securing bracket to hold cooktop. Where to I find brackets?

Can you be a little more specific?
The tile usually sits on a substrate and then the substrate sits on the counter.
Does the new cooktop fit into the current cabinet or does that also need to be modified?
How much more space do you need?
How far past the new cut line will the cooktop cover?
Short answer would be a grinder with a masonry cutting blade.
...and a vacuum.
I just put one of these in. You're right, there is nothing in the instructions about this, I had to figure it out for myself. Your kit includes two brackety-shaped steel brackets and two long screws. Look on the bottom of your cooktop, halfway between the front and back on the left and right edges and you'll see a hole on each side. They are the only holes on the bottom. Manipulate the brackets until you see that the hole in the bracket matches the hole in the bottom AND the bracket fits upward along the side of the cooktop. The flange on the top end of the bracket goes against the bottom of the countertop. It's useful to have another person lift each end of the cooktop while you insert the bracket from below. Once the brackets are in lace, center the cooktop so it's straight on the countertop, then screw the brackets to the bottom of the cooktop. They will tighten against the countertop and make the cooktop stop wiggling.
HI they just sit on the top with brackets holding from the underside or screwed in from under the top sounds like this was put in the tiled after they arestuck downfwith double sided tape as well some times , if nothing works you could go through the top it breaks like a car windscreen hope this helps
If it’s a range, there is usually a couple of screws that hold the front of the top down, remove the screws, lift the front of the top and pull it out from the back hinges. Install the new top, make sure there are no loose wiring. If it’s a cook top then make sure that the power to the cook top has been turned off, open the cabinet and look up. There should be a couple of brackets that secure the cook top. Remove the brackets, carefully lift the top and set it on the counter top (put a towel on the counter top first). replace the glass top (make sure there is no loose or exposed wiring), set the cook top back in the counter, secure it with brackets as was before, and double check your work.
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.
The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.
