    Thank you for your suggestion. I will try it. Kitchenaid recommends using a razor type scraper. Does this work or will it scratch the surface? Thank you.

    Maytag MEC5430 purchased in summer, 2003. Dark stains showing which appear to be on the underside of the cooktop. I've tried scraping, cooktop cleaners, and "green products" which are supposed to remove stains. Nothing has made any improvement.

Make sure you are using the cleaner properly.
best way is to put it on like you would wax a car.
put on a heavy coating of cleaner and then let it dry, once it is fully dry, then use a wet towel and wipe it off, then dry with another towel and polish it to a shine. this should allow the stain to be absorbed into the cleaner and then will leave a "wax" on the surface to help prevent any future stains from happening.
if this doesnt work, then put on more cleaner and lay a wet paper towel over the stained area and cleaner. this will allow the cleaner to dry slower and should help to remove any stains.
by the way not all stains will come off the first or second cleaning.
just keep trying and the stain will come off. and if you get a spill again, wipe it off as soon as you can, even if the glass top is hot, it will help.

    yes a single edge razor blade will not harm the surface but it usually only works to remove thick particles and not the stains that you have. if you need to, then use the blade but i think the soaking method will do you the best job.

Ceramic cooktop cleaning tips - especially for 2-in difficult-to-remove stain:
Best Idea: "Cerama Bryte" + plastic scrubbie
Cerama Bryte is specifically designed for this cooktop, works on stains, avail at Hardware Stores.

Other ceramic cooktop tips:
1. "Soft Scrub" plasic scrubbie
2. Comet cleanser + sponge
3. Single-edge razor blade held at 45-degree angle - scrapes off material
4. "Cook Top" cleaner (WalMart) + Mr. Clean "Magic Eraser" abrasive pad
5. baking soda on damp sponge
6. soak stain for awhile with Formula 409, Fantastic, or citrus degreaser ("Orange Clean")
7. ammonia + water - in a 1:1 solution
8. Easy Off oven cleaner - it foams on the stain and does the work for you - let it sit 20 min.
9. the nuclear option:
Cerama Bryte under a plastic scrubbie under an orbital sander with sandpaper removed
(just the pad down on top of the scrubbie), after pre-soaking in Citrus Degreaser.
The sander is a power tool which only saves your joints, and speeds up the chore.

Discoloration on ceramic top


Hi- High temps make for tricky maintenance of glass or ceramic tops. The heat element must pass its heat energy through the glass or ceramic and into the pan. Water droplets will steam away, while a spatter of oil or even a few grains of sugar will melt and burn to a tough film of carbon on the surface. The obvious preventitive measures of checking pan bottoms thoroughly before contact with clean (yes- very clean) cooktop surface mean most spots may be small, they can be annoying to look at and tough to remove. My best cleaning results for these spots came from using a VERY small amount of OVEN cleaner (use gloves) on a paper towel placed on spot for a few minutes. A clean, new razor blade may be used to scrape off film. Hope this helps. - Thanks- ED

Soup boiked over on stove top


I had some luck removing food and other stains with the new Vielda Glass Ceramic Scrung (its a sponge)

"
"Special scour sponge for cleaning glass ceramic cook tops without scratching. Eliminates burnt-in stains and greasy dirt film. Removes grease and loose dirt particles. Microfibre side will create a streak free finish."

I found mine at Walmart. It was a little pricey but if you just use the sponge for the stovetop then it will last a very long time.

Hope this helps.

Replace cooktop


looking at the part breakdown for this unit, doesnt appear to be much a of a problem in replacing the top, teh gasket should come with the new top if not there is one available for purchase, but looks as if all you need to do is remove the frame(look as if 2 screws in either rear corner will release this)afeter that the glass should lift right up simply replace with new and re-secure the screws, be gentile however the new glass can be fragile, so make sure ut fully sits flat in the spot before trying to tighten back into place
