CRACKED GLASS GE - JB968

My JD968 glass top cracked & chipped when a jug fell on it. I was quoted $1,250 to replace & install a new one. The top alone cost $1,000 !!!
Is there anywhere I could get one much cheaper and would I be able to replace it myself?
I am pretty good at repairs around the house. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I notice that you advised me on the replacement of the DOOR.

    Please note my problem is the broken GLASS TOP of the cooker. That is the actual TOP

  • rgrosberg Oct 13, 2008

    Please note that I am concerned here with the actual glass/ceramic COOK TOP not the door.

    Thank you.

  • rgrosberg Oct 13, 2008

    Thanks for this information.

    Can you advise where I will find the best price on replacement COOK TOP.

    Do you have any idea of the cost of it?

    Also, is there any risk in continuing to use the 'cracked' cooktop?



    Thank you.

    Ginko,

    Thanks very much for this info. Wow! That's really not good news, and it gets worse:

    UNFORTUNATELY, my model cooker is JD968AOKOF5CC, that's the cream colour!!

    Can you say where I would find that colour at best price?

    Thanks again for all your help & regards. Looking forward to further response.

  • rgrosberg Oct 13, 2008

    Thank you very much for your kind assistance.
    I am already in touch with the contacts you gave me and will attempt to do the job myself.

    Thanks again and best regards,

    Ronald L. Grosberg

1 Unplug cooktop or disconnect power.
2. Remove the cooktop from its mounting
location, (see “Installation Instructions” in
Section 2). Position the cooktop so that
you can access the bracket screws below
the cooktop glass
3. Remove the fourteen flat-head screws
from the front, rear, and side ceramic glass
brackets.
4. Remove the two small side brackets from
the cooktop base.
5. Lift and remove the ceramic glass from the
cook top base.CRACKED GLASS GE - JB968 - moz-screenshot-1.jpg

    Unfortunately the replacement is quite expensive. Istalling the door should not bee too difficult, so that if you decide to do it yourself you can save on the labour cost.
    Here is the replacement part for $275 DOOR OTR ASM 30 (WH)

    Here is the door assembly diagram: See Part # 140 on diagram.





    Here you find all the parts and diagrams for your appliance, just click.

    Ok, lets find the cooktop cover, it should be around $200, let see.

    Not really good news from here, the part was worth over $600, now it is for sale at $505, effectively the repaiman fee was high because of the prt price.

    See the part here : MAINTOP GLASS ASM (BLK) (MAINTOP GLASS ASM (BK))
    The part above is black, it will be more expensive if you need a different colour.

These can be tricky, first remove everything you can from the glass top then very carefully using two small screwdrivers like tyre levers gently go around the outside & the glass top will lift off.

Cracked cook top glass


unfortunatley there is no way of repairing those. Even if you look at tops on the internet, they are usually about 1/3 of what the stove cost. Check your owners manual. Some of the tops are garunteed for 5 years from "accidental" cracks. That's about your best bet.

GE Spectra model JBP78COB1CC


ok Jim - to answer your first question, you can still use the oven but it will be less efficient and will probably not operate at the temperature you set it at.

Yes you can replace the glass yourself. ?You will need the right glass for your model of stove and the installation kit to go with it.

You can purchase these at a website such as www.repairclinic.com
