How to dismount KitchenAid cooktop model KECT 365

We can't dismount our KitchenAid cooktop model KECT 365 (metal heating elements 1/2 inch ABOVE black glass cooktop) to replace burners. Installation sheet (Form 85021 Rev B) shows under-counter mounting brackets and centering adjustment screws, but we cannot find any trace of them. In theory the glass cooktop should lift out, but we can't make it budge. We tried to remove bottom plate, but some of the tiny screws won't move, and one is blocked by conduit. How can we lift cooktop out without using so much force we crack the glass?

Why not refer this issue directly to KitchenAid. Maybe they can explain the disparity between what the installation sheet shows and what you actually don't see.

SOURCE: Supporting a ceramic cooktop

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.

Epoxy would not work. If it is a very small chip and is NOT STRUCTURAL or in the heated are you could TRY the adhesive used for rear view mirror to glass attachment.

Hi,

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.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

How to replace an element


This could be a couple of issues, but unfortunately if it's your element, you would have to replace the entire element, not just the middle part. What's the rest of your model number? I can find a part number for you. (KECD806R****)

One of the burners on my kitchenaid cooktop will not heat up. What do you think the problem is? Is this something that can be easily repaired?


If it is not a glass top stove, with the power OFF, and cold, pull out a working element of the same diameter and install it where the non-working element was. Try it now. If it works, replace the heating element. If it does not, check for voltage at the element connector. CAREFULLY. Worst case is that the switch requires replacing.

Coil element on kitchen aid model ker1201 slow to


some of the coiled eyes have two coils(elements). one of the coils can burn into at any point around the element rendering it useless while the other can still work. when you lift the glass top you will see the elements are shaped like springs. the elements metal is very britlle.it is you have to replace the entire eye to fix it. the coil most likely had a very gap in the break and acted like a short making and breaking connection until the gap was too wide then nothing. easy fix. just replace the entire eye (power UNPLUGGED!!!) match the old wires with the new part as you take the old part off. I mark them even with a sharpie. it has 3 to 5 wires on that plug into the eye unit. estimated cost for the part online is about 40 to 65 bucks.

ELEMENT WONT SHUT OFF


Sounds like that specific element has shorted to ground inside it's sheath. You'll probably find the element does not get as hot as it normally would.
A fuse will not blow, or breaker not throw, because of the point in the element that the element has grounded.

Elements are available from a number of resources.

A way to test if the element is shorted to ground:

Tools needed -

Ohmeter

1)Disconnect power from the appliance
2) Remove the element (Sometimes they are plugged in, sometimes the wires screw onto the ends of the element.
3) Set the Ohmeter to Rx1000 or more.
4) Measure the resistance between the outside metal sheath, and either of the two power connection points on either end of the element. Under any condition, you should not get a reading. If you do, the element is bad, and you need to get a new one. They are not repairable.
5) Re-install in the reverse removed.
6) Check all connections are clean and all is re-assembled as you originally found it.
7) Turn on power and check if element comes on.

It is unlikely the problem is with the control, but it is a possibility. Give me more info about the cook-top (make, model) so I can investigate further.
