This Jennifer-Air cooktop has a black Schott Ceran surface. I unplugged the unit and disconnected the vent duct then removed the unit from the cabinet and shifted it 90 degrees to gain access to 10 screws that hold surface to body. Connections for replacement burner are slightly different than the original. I photographed wiring/connectors them removed the old burner. I removed mounting clips from old burner and installed them on the replacement (required two small tapping holes in aluminum case of replacement burner element). Installed new element and attached connectors (wires). No joy, outside element still did not heat - placed a dual element switch on order (have not received it yet). To be continued.
