Glass top turned black

The Glass Top on the JBP78 turned Black. Recommended cleaning agents won't remove Black. It looks like it has inbed itself into the glass.

Why do all the burners on my glass-top electric stove glow red for a few seconds, then have a "click" sound, and go black and appear to stop heating?

there is a serious problem with the electric connections
the click is probably a thermal circuit breaker switching off
call an accredited electrician to check it out

My stove's glass top has turned black - is there any way to fix this without buying a new one?

There is a cleaning powder specifically for these stoves that will remove any burnt on stuff, but that will only remove material from the surface of the glass. If the glass itself has discolored (I don't see how) then it will have to be replaced.

I have a big scratch on my glass top range.

If it is on the glass itself sorry but really no way of hiding. Only fix is to replace. If it is on the metal potion the proper appliance paint will cover and you can find in most hardware stores. Hope this helps.

Burner on glass stove top has turned black

The nice grey-flecked surface coating is very thin; the solid black is underneath. You've "cleaned" the coating off -- that's why further scrubbing just makes it worse. We did the same thing :-(

Replacement of glass top

Check your warranty in the back of your use and care book. If the unit was manufactured prior to 1/1/06 it may have a five year part (not labor) warranty as long as you did not physically abuse it. The glass top comes as an assembled top (glass, the black seal, and the metal frame holding it)
Disconnect power. remove screws under the front edge of cook top. lift cook top and remove crossbars holding burners up against glass top. Unhook cook top / frame assemble. Install new top in reverse order.
