Wierd stuff keeps happening at my house. Yesterday my wife is cooking lunch and hears a loud bang and sees some smoke (not from the lunch). Anyway, after a brief investigation we found that the cooktop had broken loose from the glass (ceramic?) surface and had fallen into the cabinet below. Apparently the impact caused some of the burners to move around, resulting in a short. When the cooktop was installed (not by me - it was in the house when we bought it) the installer lacked mechanical knowledge and a functioning brain apparently. There are supposed to be two brackets attached to the countertop that support the cooktop. These were missing and the cooktop was just hanging by it's surface (which is glued to the chassis beneath). It was just a matter of time before gravity won that tug-of-war. The new ones don't mount this way - there are brackets attached to the chassis that support it so it literally hangs from the opening, but the chassis bears the weight, not the surface. I opened it up and found some broken wires. I was able to get three burners working (of the four) but I still don't trust this cooktop anymore (plus the fourth one is pretty well gone due to the electrical short) so I am going to replace the cooktop with a new one. Where is a good place to get a new cooktop - specifically a smooth-top one? I know the usual suspects (Lowe's, Sears, Best Buy and local appliance stores - there is also a Home Depot but I don't understand why they bother with appliances honestly) but are there any other on-line sources or chains in South Carolina or upstate Georgia that I am overlooking? Any places where I can compare different prices? Thanks in advance.
