Very simple question for those who know... How do you remove the ceramic cooktop from the unit to perform maintenance? I have a burner that won't turn off and two "hot burner" indicator lights that stay on all the time.

Re: Remove ceramic cooktop
Grouch, kill the power to the cooktop. You are going to have to remove the mounting brackets from undernieth and push the cooktop up. After it's up from it's installation position remove the side and back screws holding the top to the botom. Remove the burner knobs and it should come apart. Sounds like you have a bad burner switch.

It is simple . Before the process make sure the the power is off .. There screws on the back after removing them you can lift the top n easily remove the none working ones . You can buy the spear ones online or local shop . I have done it myself or search YouTube with model number youse come a cross with repair option . Good luck .

Scott, On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace
the safest way for a home owner to do this is turn the main breaker off to the house that is the safest way. Then poll the cover plate off the box in th wall with the two screws. not the screws on the round conduit. Then pull out the wire nuts that hold the wires together and un screw them to separate wires I wouldlabel them so you know what ones went together. After top is in just reverse the proses above.
