How to replace GE JBP65 cooktop?

My daughter is away at college and dropped a hot plate on her cooktop, breaking the cooktop.  I'm hoping to replace the cooktop for her in a couple of weeks when we next visit, but I need to make sure I can handle the job (which is complicated by the fact that I can't look at the job ahead of time).
First question: She swears the model number is JBP65SOK4SS, but GE doesn't seem to have that model number.  The closest I can find on GE's site is JBP65SK4SS.  Does anyone know if these models share the same cooktop?
Second question: Assuming the correct part number is WB62T10282, how hard is it to replace the cooktop?  I've read http://www.fixya.com/support/r391448-replacing_glass_cook_top, but I'd be curious if anyone has more specific information for this model.
Third question: Are there any repair manuals for these ovens?  The users manuals aren't very much help.
Thanks (from me and my daughter)!
Mike.

If you can verify the model number (hers didn't, yours did check out) this might be the place to go:
Sears Parts Direct
Sears carries a huge line of parts for many manufacturers which are sometimes available from a storefront in your area or on line.
On your model number, there is unfortunately no complete parts illustration (line drawing) which they often have available and with a bit of thought, those give you enough insight to the construction to see what has to be done for a repair.
With the part number, I recommend you call Johnstone Supply if you have one in your area. They often have OEM parts at 1/2 to 2/3 anyone elses price. Typical savings; a washing machine pump that the dealer wanted ~$22 for, I bought from Johnstone for almost exactly half; ~$11. They are 'wholesale' but I have never been turned away.
For our appliances that have been available, I have copied (yeah, well, OK, stolen) them and have them on hand locally.

GE Cooktop drop-in model # jgp328bec2bb - how to take apart the cooktop,I need to replace the spark ignitor switch harness.


Turn off the gas,unplug the power.
Take the cooktop out of the cutout and support it on the countertop.
Remove all grates and valve knobs.
Remove all screws from the valves and the burners.
Remove the burner base plates.
You may have screw on the side holding the top to the base,if so,remove these too.
The top will separate from the bottom exposing your parts.

MY DAUGHTER PLACED A PLASTIC PLATE ON A HOT BURNER ON MY ELECTRIC COOKTOP HOW DO I GET IT OFF


Go to Home Depot and buy a bottle of Cerama-Brite and a razor scraper.

Soak the spots with the cerama-brite, but the burner on it's lowest setting and scrape the plastic off.

Finish up with windex.

Broken glass top inset ''burner ring''


If you are referring to the bakelight material, this is an insulating compound and the burner still may work. I would not use this long term in this manner however. This material insulates as well as helping maintain an even heat transfer of the burner. Long term use, may cause damage to the cooktop. The burners are replaceable, but the prices vary depending on the size of the burner. The part numbers are as follows:

6" radiant heat burner - WB30T10129
8" radiant heat burner - WB30T10132
9" radiant dual heat burner - WB30T10133

You can view these parts at searspartsdirect.com under the "Cooktop" heading. You may find the parts cheaper at these other websites, by searching for them using the part numbers provided:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary at the other websites. Sometimes they may not carry the model number, but the part numbers are still listed.

If you have further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
