I have a stove that is less than a year old. Last night our tea pot wooden handle got hot and melted on the glass top. Upon picking up the pot the stove glass top stuck to the pot and now it grooved and missing the circle burner that are molded on. Can I replace just this top or do I need to buy new again? Is this cheap?

Re: replaceing glass top on a stove
The top can be replaced but it is expensive. Your range is less than a year old call a local servicer to see if there may be warranty available to cover this problem it may not cost you anything. Good luck.

I've seen mixed results across the internet on this one. From personal experience, for some reason, my glass teapot left some sort of stain on my ceramic stovetop. It also took longer to heat. I then went out and bought a simple metal one and have been pretty satisfied. If cosmetics are a concern, it's not too difficult a step to pour the water into your teapot after the fact, right?
No you should not use a glass kettle or glass type pots on a ceran top stove. Always use metal flat bottom kettle and pots. When buying a metal kettle make sure that there is no gap between the bottom of the kettle and the surface of the ceran top. Some metal kettles have an indentation on the bottom. This does not work well on the ceran top.
Hope this helps.
YES!!! let it cool over night. Then put a little water at the base of the pot to allow it to soften whatever glued the two together. let that sit for a few hours and try to remove the pot. It may take longer (and more water), but it should eventually let loose. Those glass tops are very pricey, so please don't try to force it off as this may cause the top to break! Hope this helps!!
im sorry about that.i have replace many of those running around 400$,that a lot of money.i have see glass top stoves on sale 4 that much.and i think they all are about the same as quilty goes.God bless,tom
Two possible reasons come to mind.
1. There most likely was a short circuit that activated the top unit. Was any part of the top glowing when you looked at it while it was crackling?
2. Be aware that glass tops CANNOT take as heavy a load of pots and pans as a STANDARD range can. The glass will crack. The stress can accumulate over a period of time and you will be left with the 4 am madness dim experienced.
If anyone out there finds themselves in a similar situation, don't wait when you hear the crackling. Pull the the range plug, or find the ranges circuit breaker in your electrical box and turn it off.
