I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and I"m going to show you how to properly replace the glass stove top for an electric stove. For this job, you're going to need a couple of tools. I like to use a five-in-one adjustable screwdriver. This allows me to have a flathead and a Phillips head. Also I can get two different size of bolts on there. First thing you're going to do is shut off the breaker and unplug the stove. This is key. If you do not do this it could cost you your life. Now we've shut off the power, and we're going to remove the stove top. With your adjustable screwdriver open the door and located right underneath are two bolts. You want to go ahead and remove those bolts. Alright, now that we have the bolts removed simply pick up on your glass stove top. There is all your under compartments, all your wires and everything. Now located in the back are two ends. You want to go ahead and pull those ends gently. Be careful because some of them have a lock on them that you have to push in with your thumb or slide to the side. Now, right here we have a ground wire connected to the stove top. Take your adjustable screwdriver and go ahead and remove that bolt. Now that we have all the bolts removed we're going to simply pick up, take your new stove top, set it gently on the stove. Now, we have all our wires hooked back up. Take and slide it into place. Now that we have them back in, plug it back in, take and make sure it's working properly. The reason you do this is to make sure that the picture above matches which one starts to glow. And that's all there is to it. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors. That's how you can properly replace a glass stove top for an electric stove.
