Re: shattered glass top for Hotpoint range/ how to...

The cook top on your range should come off by removing 2 to 3 screws under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Once you have them removed the top should lift up. Please ensure you have the range unplugged and/or the circuit breaker turned off before attempting any repairs to the heating elements. Live voltages are still present with the unit turned off. Now...depending on the type and model of your range, the wiring harness may have a quick disconnect type of plug. If yours is so equipped, replacing the top will be a cinch, because you can remove it from the range to work on it. Take the old top and new top and place them next to each other upside down on a padded surface. Placing some towels on a kitchen table or counter top works best. Now all you have to do is carefully transfer the entire harness and burner elements to the new cook top. You should be able to move the entire assembly with all the burners still connected. A second set of hands will make the process go much easier. If your range does not have the quick disconnect type of wiring harness have someone hold the cook top up or prop it up with something. Carefully remove the element mounting brackets from the cook top (with all the elements still attached). Carefully support all the wires as you do so, and lay the entire assembly (elements and wires) on top of the oven cavity insulation. Once you have everything disconnected from the cook top, discard the old one and position the new one in place. Carefully reinstall the elements while supporting the wires. Additional care should noted not to handle the ceramic material of the elements and/or the heat coils themselves. They are very fragile and the oil from your hands can potentially damage the elements and shorten the life of them. Let me know if this helpful to you. If you get stuck along the way, or have any questions, please respond to this posting by adding additional comments.

Shattered glass top for Hotpoint range/ how to replace

Hi there!

There are two basic types, Flush fitting and framed.

The framed versions are a bit like a picture frame, with the fixings around the edge and back. The flush ones rely on adhesives to the base edge around the plate, but may have a metal fixing frame attatched already.

Check the new plate you have to see if there are any keyhole shaped slots on a subframe (indicating a drop on, and push forward to lock arrangement) or if it looks different to the one that is broken.

The old saying - "If in doubt- ask" is true here, and you should telephone the manufacturer for any specific fitting instructions. You may need additional parts - fixing plates, screws, seals or adhesives, so I would advise calling their service department to ask if additional parts are required for fitting.They should be happy to supply them if needed.
This is not a cheap item, so don't risk poor fitting or damage by lack of correct parts.
