How to lift stove top on gas range kenmore model 790.7270

I need to lift the top of the gas range.
I have removed all the grates and cooktop burner heads by removing all screws.
There appears to be a bracket holding the top down in both the left and right front corners.
These are brackets AND NOT clips as other models.
I have already searched the web site and existing answers appear to be for other models(i.e. clips) and are not applicable for model 790.7270
How do I get the top off?

Having to work on your Rang can be quite a challenge. I have taken the time to research on the Manage My Life website and have located a link similar to your issue. While you are waiting for a detailed reply from an expert I have attached the link below.

When I entered the model you sent, our system pulled up 12 possible models. I searched each of the parts diagrams and each one shows clips holding the main top down.

Look on your parts diagram or go to

Parts Direct

and search the model number. Go to the "body" page of the parts diagram and look at item 49.

The best way to locate the clips is to insert a putty knife in the crack between the main top and the frame of the range. Slide the putty knife along both sides and the front with the blade inserted about 2 inches into the crack. The spring clip will stop the putty knife.

If you have questions, reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.
