Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop
I wish to replace the solid surface electric cooktop with a gas burner model. The cooktop does not seem to be secured to the granite countertop with any mechanical fasteners yet I can not budge the unit when I push from below. What could be holding it down? Any suggestions on what the installers may have used to stick it down with may help in finding a solvent or other means to release it from its mooring.
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.
