To replace the cooktop the first thing you need to do is turn off the breaker outside that supplies the power to the cooktop.. Then go under the cooktop in the cabinet and follow the flex power cord to the wall. Remove the cover plate on that box in the wall. un connect the wires from the wires in the wall. Next look up at the bottom of the cooktop to make sure there is no clamps that hold the cooktop to the counter top. if there is remove the. Then just lift the cooktop off the counter top. from here you just reverse the steps to put the new one in.

Good Luck

Smeg hob cracked on the bottom left side. It still works perfectly, however I'm wondering if I can just replace the glass, or if I need to replace the whole thing? Im looking for the cheapest option

The cheapest option is to araldite the crack (assuming it's not over the hot part!) and live with it. I doubt it is economically viable to replace the glass, it will be quicker and easier to replace the hob if you can get one with the same hole size. The only way it would be cheaper is if you find a second hand one on an auction site. You might be covered on your buildings insurance but a claim won't be cost free.

New cooktop ! long flame yellow tips black deposits on pans

This is probably the result of inefficient burning of gas resulting in sooty deposits being left on the base of saucepans etc. It may be that the gas jets are blocked with spilt material and need cleaning. Try removing the gas hub with the gas jet holes in and sliding a paperclip sized rod into each hole to dislodge any material. Blow in the holes afterwards to force any loose material out. If this fails you may need a gas fitter to adjust the gas mixture regulators.

Smeg gas cooktop is continually clicking.....going mad,,,,,

Ist unplug the unit. What you have is the stovetops valve switch defective. Sometimes this will happen after a boil over. The switches get wet and temparaly short. When they dry out it should work properly.

SMEG SE435X-1 60CM Electric hob. Keeps tripping fuse

It's possible that one of the burners stay on for a long time, which cause one of the wires to overheat, breaking the connection and touching the body of the unit, please turn the breaker off and check for a loose connection, replace the wiring if you feel confortable doing it yourself or contact a technician.
