Ok Hello there.

Number 1)
There are several types of this 8430 but all will be similar . For the complete set of machines if you REALLY need the EXACT one.go here

Number 2)
PLEASE don't 'fiddle about' with the cooker if you don't know about electrics. There are VERY high powerand DANGEROUS electric cables in there ! This is Nothing like a low power Stereo or TV BE CAREFUL !!!!

Number 3)
I am not familiar with this top but it seems from the diagrams that it just drops in to a base unit that contains the fan unit.somehow. I don't see any screws in the surface of the top so TURN OFF THE POWER COMPLETELY take out by lifting the edges ; the whole thing and work on it from underneath to access the electrics..

These diagrams below will show you all you need to do the job. READ THEM THOROUGHLY BEFORE you start.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL with Electrical wiring. !!! I cant stress enough

The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.

How to remove the top panel of the cooktop?

To remove the top so that you can replace the electrodes, you just need to pull all the burner grates off and knobs. Then remove all the burner caps and rings off so that all you're left with is the cooktop and the burner bases. There are screws going into each burner base. Remove all the screws and the burner bases will pull up and off and then you can pull the top of the cooktop up and off.

Problem solved. Followed the instructions given and successfully changed the cooktop.

Cooktop downdraft blower control knob broke off

Yes their is a way, you need to unplug the power, and look for the brackes that holds the cooktop to the counter, remove those scrwes and lift the cook top, then look under the top lip and you will see small scrwes, remove those and the glass will lift, then just reverse the steps.
Hope this help!!
