My daughter cleaned the stainless steel cooktop with the wrong cleaner and etched the stainless steel. I ordered a new skin and wonder if there are any special tools or key instructions I need before beginning the replacement. Thx.

Pam,

What a shame. No there are no "special" tools needed to replace your cooktop(skin), just basic hand tools.
And heres some help :
CAUTION:
When you work on the cooktop, be careful when handling the sheet metal parts. Sharp edges may be present, and you can cut

yourself if you are not careful.

1. Turn off the gas supply and electrical power to the cooktop.
2. Remove the grates and burner caps.
3. Remove the knobs from the controls.
4. Remove all of the burner bases. To remove a burner base, remove the two screws, and lift it off the drip pan.
5. Lift the maintop off the countertop. NOTE: If you are replacing the maintop, unclip the control bezels from the mounting holes, otherwise leave them installed.

Good Luck,
