    I have sort of the same problem only with a Whirlpool Gold glass top. I've only had it for a few months but someone left an empty pan burning on it and now there is a nickel sized scratch all the way to the metal with a couple of scratches next to it. Is there any way I can touch it up without replacing the whole glass top?

Yes you can replace the top. I tried looking up the part number for you but the model number was not valid. There should be 4 more numbers after the 9656. When i get a valid model number i can get you the part number and a price. thanks

The renters used brillo to clean the stove top and now it's scrated. Can it be repaired?


A scratched enameled stove top can be polished if the scratches arent too severe.

You can try a rubbing compound to smooth out the scratches and then polish to bring back the shine.

What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

New cooktop. spilled food how to I clean it up


I need more information. Smoothtop? Gas? Electric? Stainless steel? Smoothtop, scrape what you can off with a plastic credit card or something similar. If necessary use a razor blade. Finish cleaning with a liquit polishing top cleaner made for smooth top ranges. Regular use will leave a smooth finish that will make it easier to clean. Us only a plastic pad or other non abrasives. Regular porcelain top. clean up as best you can with a dish rag. scrape with a plastic tool. Use oven cleaner if necessary. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum items. It will remove numbers, writing etc and badly stain aluminum.

Cleaning of stove top


I assume you are talking about a glass smooth top stove. Use any of the liquid polishing type cleaners made for this use. Regular use leaves a build up that makes it easier to clean without streaking.

Kenmore smooth top - cooking problems


Smooth tops take a little geting used to than a coil top range....Make sure you have good flat cookware. NO GLASS COOKWARE. (ie vision ware.) Once the burner is set to high, it has to heat the glass, then the pot, so it does take about 2 min loger to boil, If you want to simmer, then i suggest bringing the item to a rapid boil, and then cutting back the heat to below the 1 on the range. and adjusting from there. All smooth top glass ranges do work in this manner. Most people can adjust to the switch, but not everyone can. there really is no problem with your range. BTW i work at sears, and i am surprised that no one helped you.
