Cracked ceramic stove top
Don't pay for someone to do this easy job for you. I called a local appliance repair shop and they quoted me $450 to repair the broken glass on our stove. I bought the replacement part on Parts Select and installed it myself in about 1 hour. It is really pretty simple:
1) Turn off the electricity to your stove/oven! This is important. An easy way to do this is switching off the circut at the circut breaker box in your house.
2) Two screws are located on the front bottom of the stove that hold the stove top in place, remove
3) Simply lift and pull the stove top out of its location until you see the electrical coupling that supplies power to your burners. Disconnect this attachment. You are now free from the oven.
4) Remove the stove top and place upside-down on a flat area.
5) Remove the two screws from each burner (4 burners x 2 screws each). Do not mess with any of the electrical wiring, as it does not need to be removed.
6) Take off the burner set and wiring and place on your replacement stove top. Of course you need to have your new stove upside-down as well.
7) Simply reverse these instructions and you're set. Screw in the burners, place the stove-top on the oven, connect the electrical coupling, and turn on the power.
8) You now can enjoy some boiled lobster on your new stove for the $200 + you just saved. Bon Appetite.

unscrewed the 6 screws, then disconnected the power supply to the cooktop. Removed the cooktop cleaned the area under the cooktop. Replaced the cooktop, reconnected the power supply and screwed on the cooktop
