After searching high and low, there was no solution out there on the i dug into it and figured it out. Be warned, this is a fairly long and difficult job to do. As with most GE appliances, they are not designed for easy DIY fixing.

A second pair of hands is pretty helpful with this project.

The main problem is knowing what bits to take apart without disassembling the whole oven; here is the best way I know after my 4 hour project was completed:

1. Pull out the range from the counter.
2. Remove the screw from each side on top/back of the unit just below the cooktop - silver in color.
3. Remove the handles and plastic rings from the control face plate, carefully unplug the wiring harness and set faceplate aside.
4. Open oven door, in upper front section you will see 5 screws that hold the control panel on - remove.
5. Remove the steel control panel housing plate from the range - 4 screws.
6. Now the difficult part; you need to unfasten the cooktop assembly from the range - a number of screws will be visible behind the wiring that goes to the housing plate(7 I believe) remove these carefully. You may elect to disconnect all the wiring, but I chose not to.
7. Now you should be able to slide/lift off the cook top, you will need to unplug the wiring harness to lift it completely off.
8. Place the old(broken, most likely) cooktop upside down on the floor or counter with the new one next to it -- best to put a towel underneath the new one.
9. Remove all burner assemblies from the old one, and transfer to new one and secure with screws and brackets. As all burners are tied together this is easiest with 2 people.
10. Reassemble in reverse order.

Good luck.

Glass top range is pitted and scratched from an abrasive cleanser. Can it be replaced. It is a whirlpool freestanding range about 2 years old

Yes, your glass top assembly on your range can be replace. Here is one link where you can get the part,

It is a relatively easy job to replace the main top since the burners are not attached to the top assembly itself. Remove 2 or 3 screws on the front of the top and you can easily lift the entire top off of the range and replace it with the new top.

Vent window repair.

To replace the window seal, you first have to remove the vent window assembly from the door. After it is removed, the nut and spring on the bottom of the window has to be removed. Then remove the glass and frame from the vent assembly frame. Then gently remove the rubber off of the frame and install the new one after you replace the top vent bar seals. Reverse the window removal procedures to reinstall the glass and frame. The top vent bar seals requires a special tool to remove and replace the rivets you get with the replacement seal. You need to replace the top vent bar seal before reinstalling the new vent window rubber. When I replaced my top vent seals, it was fairly easy with my removal/installation tool.

Do not pry off main panel! It has built on tabs to hold it in place.
First ease the angular top front panel, switch rest and handle cover.
flat screw driver used carefully works fine. Unplug the switch wire connectors [3]. remove the 2 small screws. door light can be remove and disconnected as well. The door speaker plug can be done after with the main panel part way off.
Lift up on the main panel to remove. Wedge or tape the window glass to before removing the power window assembly.
remove 5 bolts on the actuator assem. Loosen the 2 bolts on the glass clamps.

I am looking to replace the main glass top to a Frigidaire 30" Electrice Slide In Range - Model PLES389DCB. Before I make the purchase I want to be sure I can do this myself.

Hi there

You can get the part from here

It is not very complicated job to replace it. You, probably, will need somebody to give you a hand.

To start, remove the screws from the front of the main top holding it to the frame and lift it up. All burners are attached to the main top. Remove them one at a time, remove the indicator lights (they have the locking clips) and then release the main top from the hinges (under the control panel) and remove it.

Assemble all parts in the reverse order.

I found this info here. There is quite a bit of info regarding this procedure if you wanted to have a read up to get your confidence up:)
