Whirlpool 30" gas cooktop


How do i remove this cooktop from counter without destrying it?
I am having granite installed and want to go back with the same cooktop.
There is an under counter gas oven underneath.

You do the REVERSE of the installation procedure.
Find/use the install instructions to learn how it is attached and to what.

Going to have cut off the gas and power, remove the oven, then there should be clips under the top holding it in place.

you will have to remove the wall oven first, on the under side of the cooktop there will be a bunch of clips holding it down

That's what I was afraid of! Well,
I guess a little work is better than paying $800 (yes, this is California!) for the granite installer to remove, demo and re-install!
Thanks guys for your input!

Just an FYI... now is a good time to make sure it is installed to code.

Not sure what your local codes are, but I have seen several cook tops that are installed improperly with respect to how the gas line is run.

Definitely worth checking into.
