Oh great masters, can you clue me in on how to remove the freakin control panel from this unit? I removed approx. 10 screws underneath the control panel, and I have pulled up and out to the point I know I am about to bend some of that pretty stainless steel. No budge. It is loose along the bottom, but there is something holding it at the top that I can't see. I thought it might just be greasy crud, but I cleaned out the crack between the panel and the cooktop with a putty knife, and still no budge.

Thanks a million,

You are the latest victim of the "hidden screw bandit"...pull the screws out at the rear of the top, lift the rear and pull the the top backwards, revealing the enlightenment you seek.

Thanks Kurt! That did the trick. Greetings from the PNW to my favorite state east of the Mississippi!
