Glass cooktop replacement

Hello,

we have a kitchenaid electric glass cooktop. It has a major crack but is still functional.
I donít have the full model # but itís in the KECC568 family.

Iíve found a similar model on Facebook. Itís from the same model family. KECC568RPS01.

the seller doesnít know if his unit worked. Never installed it. Iím interested in installing it OR using its glass as a replacement.

My unit has a slightly different burner design.

has anyone replaced the glass before? Would a similar, but not exact glass work fine? Are the controls below the glass or on the glass?

pictured below is my unit and the possible replacement

My existing unit

Possible replacement with different burner config

I've replaced the tops but not using a "similar" model.

The KECC568RPS is the model in your "new" picture. The S stands for stainless trim.
The KECC568RPB is more like your old top. The B stands for black.
The KECC568RPW is white.

When I research older models I'm coming up with Whirlpool W10140999.
If you look down at the bottom of the page... it shows all the old model numbers.

I think you're going to have to lift your unit up to get the actual model number.

So would you attempt to swap the glass on these two?

Does the glass have markings (circles, numbers) or is that below the glass?

I assume the actual controls are below the glass?

Everything is below the glass.
The markings are where the cookware goes.
However, the openings are not exactly the same so I don't know if you can swap the glass.
