The hinge mechanism in the back of the range top, could not be fitted to the new part. I needed to enlarge a couple of seat holes on the underside in the front portion of the new part to make it seat securely enough so the hinge mechanism could be safely deleted. (The new top is now simply sitting on the range, without hinge in the back).
More care should have been used to identify the correct top for the exact model and serial number of the range. Even though I had communicated those numbers when I ordered the part, and the picture looked like the correct part, the problem arose.
