We just finished installing this cooktop. For the price we were impressed. The only problem we had was the connector you see in the first photo. As we replaced a GE that was 17 years old we were able to take the old brass fitting and reuse it after cleaning( pic shows wire brush we used). Make sure to use pipe dope(see picture) for the fittings. Do a soapy water test when you turn on your gas line to check for leaks. If there are leaks you need more pipe dope on the fitting threads. If you choose to use pipe tape you must use the yellow one for gas lines.
It was time to test… see pic of my awesome husband who did the install! Make sure all burner covers are flush and you will get a steady flame. It was a easy install for us. Tomorrow we will install the range hood. I recommend this product.
We did not use the enclosed metal clips. We plan to use a rubber or foam seal under the edge of the cooktop instead. I am happy!
