Hello cooksspecs and welcome to the community!


To replace the cooktop (picture #1) with a traditional range (picture #2), you would need to move or re-route the electric supply lines and then cut out the cabinet beneath the cooktop (see red lines in picture #3 below). The electric work needs to be done by a licensed electrician and cabinets and countertops will need to be done by a carpenter, both can be done by a general contractor. 


This is not a typical DIY project for the faint of heart, the thought of cutting into the countertop wrong, or even cutting the cabinet for that matter brings visions of dollar bills leaving my wallet, so hire a general contractor. 


Please let us know if you have any further questions!
