Seperate a granite tile backsplash from an existing countertop

I need to know how to seperate an existing granite tile backsplash from an existing countertop so that the backsplash can be replaced and the existing countertop is not damaged. The backsplash is secured in place but I am unable to determine how it was originally secured.

Thank you!

The back splash should be held on by silicone or glue very seldom are they screwed on i would bet it is stuck with adhesive silicone so score around the outside of the splash with a utility knife the remove it scoring around the outside will prevent sheet rock damage

If you are talking about a gap caused by the height of the stove, You can lower the height of the stove by adjusting the threaded leg posts on the bottom of the stove. A more difficult fix would be in raise the height of the countertop and cabinets by shimming the bottom of the cabinets.


If your gap is not a height issue, then you can experiment with some type of trim around the stove itself. Local granite dealers has an assortment of trims for issues like this.


I was able to find a number of trims for a back gap on my granite countertops and backsplash from my local European Marble and Granite.

Replacing an old jenn air electric cook top with new 30" down draft gas cooktop. Need to know how to secure the cooktop to the granite countertop.


You should just be able to set the cooktop in after you attach the downdraft, usually there are tabs on the downdraft that clamp on to the granite cutout. There is probably a closed-cell foam strip that runs under the lip of the cooktop, I would just make sure it seals to the granite properly (no gaps) and put a couple dabs of silicone in between the lip of the cooktop and the granite. Usually the cooktop is heavy enough that the silicone will keep it from moving around.

From my experience, most cooktop manufacturers give cutout dimensions that almost always need modifications to get the screws or nuts on the stove to fit the cutout. Have your granite fabricator come enlarge the opening by grinding specifically where there is interference. They should be able to tent off your granite and use a vacuum to minimize dust.

Keeping existing 220V for oven and getting 110V to cooktop


yes you need a seperate line for the cooktop. whoever hooked your oven and cooktop up in the first place should have never hooked them to the same line to begin with. you are lucky you never had issues.

Installing JED8230ADB Cooktop Grill with down-draft exhaust


I can't imagine directing the downdraft vent back up to a traditional hood type system. Why bother, just don't use the downdraft or get a cooktop without a down draft and save money.

In granite, yes for any cooktop as long as someone can cut the correct size hole. Cooktops must be installed so the top is just about flush with the countertop. They all come with a template for cutting the right size hole in the countertop.

Granite installation didn't get flush with slide-in range


suspect your contractor didn't allow for the tiled floor. the range legs are usually adjustable up and down. have you checked this?

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.
