Customer Question

I am trying to replace the top plate heating elements on an Electrolux EKC5045X cooker but I can't raise the top hotplate high enough to remove the elements as the wiring loom to the front control knobs is taught and the top plate won't open any more than about 45 degrees. Is there a way of raising the plate fully without having to detach all the wiring from the control knobs, as there's not even enough room to take a photo of the connections to make sure they go back on the correct switch terminals.
