    I actually left the stove on with an empty pan (long story), for about twenty minutes, completely melted the bottom of the pan to the stove. It was slowing coming up while cooling, but, someone had to pull up fast and pulled a chunk of glass out of the stove top. Now I need to replace it. Any ideas, I found one online that was an exact match for free, the oven doesn't work, wondering if I can just put that cooktop onto mine.

Hello Chris700,
welcome.

1.What is the model #
2. How old is the range?

If the range is 6 years old or more it may not be worth spending to much money on it.
Bless you huuum


Here is an article I just read about this matter!


Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

The glass top on my format oven has a crack in it, can i replace the glass top?


Yes it can be replaced and without to much hassle just a few screws. Finding your glass from your manufacturer would be where i would start first, locating the glass is why most people have to purchase a new stove because parts are not available. Please rate my solution it is how i earn my achievements. Thanks in advance

Glass top broken,can it be fixed


The glass top can be fixed. You will need to call a parts dealer to order. They usually run a couple hundred dollars. If you are going to replace yourself than you will need to pull the stove out and disconnect power. Than remove the side panels and it allows access to the screws holding the glass top in place. Be extremely careful when replacing these. They can break easily. Make sure you place burners and everything on the new one exactly how they are on the old one. Easy way of doing this is have a couple big towels and set next to each other and switch parts there. Remember that when you put it back together to clean it with glasstop cleaner before you use the stove.

Good morning; We have a new Jenn-Air black glass


Any proprietary glass top cleaner should be suitable. Avoid using a wire based scouring pad but the Scotch type 'plastic/foam' cleaning pads are ok.

How to remove the top on a hotpoint electric stove so I can replace the burners


Most ranges attach at the rear. Just underneath the seam, where the top meets the body, there are usually 2 screws (toward the outer edge) that press 2 metal clips. Remove the 2 screws and lift up, back to front. with model info, i can give you a link to the repair manual, online.

You can buy replacement tops for your range. Check with your manufacturer for local parts distributors or service locations and they should be able to find you one. There is also online part stores that sell them like http://www.partadvantage.com/store anywhere from 150-400$
