Broken MAYTAG glass cooktop

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.

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.

I own a Maytag Glass top electric range stove. Model # PER5710BAC. The glass stove top cracked straight down the middle, and one of the bigger burners doesn't heat up anymore. Is there any way to repair...


You could try purchasing replacement parts from a local appliance parts supplier and you might be able to get advice on making the repair. The supplier can advise you of the cost, allowing you to decide whether it is economically worthwhile to repair the range. You also have to consider your degree of confidence in your ability to do the necessary work

I understand all the troubleshooting / repairs for this cooktop (Maytag / Whirlpool CSG7000), but I need to know...How do I separate the glass top from the steel pan without breaking it? Can't get at the...


You will have to use a putty knife to separate the top from the burner box.
After you do your repair you will also need 107 inches of burner box tape to re-seal the top.

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove


  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

Kitchenaid 36" glass cooktop with small crack


A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

My smooth cook top is cracked, can I still use the burners?


using a cracked cooktop is highly dangerous. i have seen these cooktops shatter because of people using them with a crack. One shattered so bad that the glass was found all over the kitchen and the ajoining living room.

Stovetop stays hot when burners are not on


Is it a glass top. If it is, glass will absorb the heat. It will cool off after some time. That is normal.
