Replacing top on cracked glass ceramic cooktop
« on: July 02, 2008, 05:19:20 PM »

I need help in getting a manual and or instructions for replacing a cracked ceramic cooktop.
I have good skills and a good shop, but would like to get a map before the trip.

Model Number: KECC508GBL3

WHIRLPOOL 4455554 Cooktop (white), AP3047009

Hi,

Should be a lot like the one in the attachment.

Once you get it removed from the counter there is not much to it.

I have ordered several for customers. They tell me only a few screws are removed and then the top slides right out.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Nothing like a map to start the trip.
