So to get under the cooktop, you'll now need to remove all the screws going into each burner base. Once they are all removed try to lip up on the top toward the front. If the top doesn't hing up and back, there are 2 hidden metal spring clips in the seam between the front control panel and the top panel. They will be about 3-5 inches from the sides of the stove. Use a putty knife to push back on these hidden metal spring clips inside the seam and that will release the top panel so it can hinge up and backwards so that you can re-assemble things below the cooktop.
