Differences between cooktop and stove top repair
Cooktops drop into a cut-out opening in a countertop while a stove top is the top cooking surface of a range that includes an oven.
Glass cooktop repair requires installation expertise
When a glass cooktop breaks and needs replacing, the cooktop needs to be pulled out of the counter, whereas a range often doesn’t need removal from the counter to repair a stove top.
Pulling the cooktop out of the countertop then reinstalling the cooktop after the repair requires special skills and attention to detail. This process can be challenging with granite countertops because special installation techniques are used to install the cooktop.
Sears technicians have the training and expertise to tackle any type of glass cooktop repair.
Access to gas cooktop supply lines can be challenging
When a wall oven is installed in the cabinet under a gas cooktop accessing the cooktop’s gas supply line can require removing the oven. Repairing a gas cooktop can sometimes be more challenging than repairing a gas stove top on the top of a range.
Controls are often on the top of a cooktop
Surface burner controls are often on the top of a gas or electric cooktop. Burner controls for the stove top on a gas or electric range are often in a remote location. such as in front or behind the stove top. Accessing burner controls in a cooktop is often more complicated than accessing burner controls in a stove. Repairing burner controls for a glass cooktop often requires removing the glass top to access controls.
