I had to replace my glass cooktop. I checked the specs on a replacement, and ordered the one I thought would fit. When I dropped it in the new stove top, I had a 7/8" gap. The specs online were wrong. The company I ordered it from said too bad, I should have measured it when the truck delivered, and refused delivery! Now I have this huge gap. And, since it is 29" long, no gap filler is long enough. What can I do to hide this gap?enter image description here

    My farmer's daughter of a mother would never let that stand with the retailer. Anyhoo, I'd look for a powder-coated metal strip that coordinates with the cooktop and install it with foam tape. It'll be challenging to coordinate with your countertop laminate. – isherwood Nov 2 '18 at 12:55

    Most cook top manufacturers also sell fillers specifically for this. I have seen them up to 36" and trim down to the size needed. If your cook top seller doesn't sell them, check with manufacturer. If not, I think box stores sell generic ones. That's the front, correct? It should of been installed tight to the front and the gap in back. – Gunner Nov 2 '18 at 14:57
  • +1 for SS strip. Use the same strip top and bottom or all around to get a clean look. – Stanwood Nov 2 '18 at 19:06
  • Thanks for the ideas. I called the retailer 3 times. And, was hung up on 3 times. Left a review, it was denied. I am going to take suggestion and contact the manufacturer. As the daughter of 5 generations of home builders, I am not giving up. – L Hasz Nov 4 '18 at 15:23
