Four years ago, we had a new kitchen fitted. The kitchen fitters sealed the induction hob to the granite worktop. The hob now needs repairing and we need to be able to lift it out of the worktop. However, we cannot do this because of the sealant. I have removed the sealant around the edge of the hob using a knife but we are having difficulty removing the sealant that has been put under the lip of the hob (sticking it to the worktop) as there is no gap in places or only 0.5mm gap in other places. We have tried squirting in Soudal Sealant remover and sliding a knife into the gap (where there is one) to try and slice the silicone, but the worktop is still stuck fast. Can anybody advise what we could do? Thanks
stupid question, but have you undone the clips under the worktop first, reason being done the exact same job today,and used a wood chisel to ease the hob up and cut the silicone with a Stanley knife, it worked a treat.
