Can I still use my cooktop after my range control has been removed?

Yes, for most ranges the burners will continue to operate even after the oven timer has been removed. However, this involves plugging the appliance in so be sure to take some precautions before you do this.

While the appliance is still unplugged, use electrical tape to cover all of the metal wire clips that are normally fastened to the oven control. This will prevent these wires from becoming grounded and shorting out when you plug in the appliance.
