Question about Kitchen Ranges
This top was shattered and we have a replacement, but there are no instructions on how to install this. HELP What are the directions for replacing the glass ceramic cooktop? Is there a schematic? Thanks!
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.
