I placed a really hot metal dish on my glasstop and when it cooled and I picked up the dish it had cracked, splintered (not sure how to describe it) a small circular area on the glass. I turned on that burner and it looked fine under the glass but I don't want to take a chance and use it due to it might crack and spread across the entire stove top area.
any advise, comment would be greatly appreciated.

Re: glasstop stove chiped
Keep using the range if the glass is cracked all the way through it will appear quickly. Then the glass top will have to be replaced . There is no fix for the glass top. You might get lucky and nothing will happen.

Are you sure you put the right model number in? The RB526 doesn't have a glass top! Suggest you find the equipment id tag on your stove and then go to searspartsdirect.com and plug in the model number and search for the part you want.
NOTE: Sears is not usually the lowest priced place to buy from, BUT they use the real part number that you can do a search on to find a lower price. But since it is a glass cook top, sears has the in store delivery and pick up so that you can inspect for cracks and chips before accepting it.
Have you ever had a splinter in your hand or foot? Splinters can be incredibly annoying and sometimes very painful. Often you won't have a good tweezer around or you simply can't bear the thought of digging the splinter out. My grandmother had the perfect solution to this problem. Place a warm to hot compress over the area with the splinter for five minutes to loosen up the skin and open your pours. Then dry the area thoroughly or this trick won't work. Place a thin layer of Elmer's glue over the area of the splinter (Just like you used to do as a kid in art class!) Five minutes later, once the glue is completely dried, grab the glue from one corner and pull up quickly. Pull it similarly to the way you would if you were waxing a body part... but I promise the splinter removal will pain free. Sometimes, the glue will grab onto the splinter but only bring it half the way up. In that case, you can repeat until you are splinter free and clear.
clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not
hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water
temperature.The water temperature should be minimum of 140 degree Fahrenheit.
Also check the filter in your dishwasher for any debris accumulation.
If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.
The glass top can be fixed. You will need to call a parts dealer to order. They usually run a couple hundred dollars. If you are going to replace yourself than you will need to pull the stove out and disconnect power. Than remove the side panels and it allows access to the screws holding the glass top in place. Be extremely careful when replacing these. They can break easily. Make sure you place burners and everything on the new one exactly how they are on the old one. Easy way of doing this is have a couple big towels and set next to each other and switch parts there. Remember that when you put it back together to clean it with glasstop cleaner before you use the stove.
After letting the stove cool, I pulled the entire unit out from the wall and discovered scorch marks on the wall. Opening the back panel revealed a simple fix: the "element on" light module had shorted and was visibly scorched and melted. Looks like a simple replacement (and some wire stripping where the leads fused). Stove currently works with the affected wires capped off (while I await a replacement module).

yes , hopefully you have a seperate indicator light for each of the elemnts, makes it easier to see which has gone bad, but if yo know which burner you were usins at time of incident then you can assume that it was that elemnet. replacement of the elemnt is required, for a it has a short in the theremistor, not a hazard, more of an inconvience, so i would have it taken careof but no need to rush its not an emergency, its only an faulty indicator, the elmnt is not actually heating
You can buy just the glass for your glasstop stove. I too need to replace my glass...I have a whilpool electric glasstop. Its not cheap...may just buy new stove. I priced just the glass for my whilpool at the cheapest I can find for $320.00. Thats a lot. Mind you its not the elements under the glass..its just the glass! So...idk bout you, but a whole new stove might be my best option. If you want to price the glass for your model just keyword search your number and brand of stove and type replacement glass. GOODLUCK! :)
