Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range
Question: My glass top has a crack about a foot long going across one of the burners. Is is safe to use the burners that are not cracked ? If moisture gets into the cracked section, will this be dangerous? I, too, am not impressed with Maytag..anyone find a cheap place to buy tops?
check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

Use oven cleaner. Spray it and let it sit on a couple of hours. Scrape with a razor blade. It worked for me after trying everything recommened by the manufacture.

It is simply a cosmetic issue.
The heating elements are not embedded in the glass top - they are underneath.
Using the burners will be fine.

its safe but will be a pain
if you have a small crack in the liner
you can buy white tin tape and get a good seal again
but if you willing to deal with it
and wipe it down alot
you will be fine
