Any way of repairing chip in cooktop

A bowl was dropped on the very edge of the cooktop and caused a chip. it is on the bottom left corner and not significantly close to any burner. if you look at a picture of the cooktop (model ETT304BT) it is literally on the very edge of the bottom left corner. I refuse to pay 700 or 1000 or any of these outlandish quotes to fix a chip. Ive read some reviews that say the cooktop will explode, etc, but i somewhat find that hard to believe. Is there any substitute I can use to even cover the chip??

    Robert, it is a dacor cooktop model ETT304BT.. I just want to fill in the chip or something versus spend up to a grand replacing the whole thing. i dont see how leaving the chip or filling it in will cause that much problem

Either leave it as it is or replace the hob as a spare part is available for most ceramic hobs.

No recalls that I know of.  The switch for that burner has shorted and will need to be replaced.  It will be fine once it is repaired.

Check your warranty first. Some burners on smooth tops had long warrantys. If not first turn the power off to the unit at the breaker. If this is a in counter cooktop it has to come out of the counter and take all the screws out that hold down the top. Best to unwire from house and move whole unit to big surface to work on.

SOURCE: I have a smooth top

just the angle of the hit, not the weight of the item, granted a very light wieght item is less likely to cause damage but a large spoon hitting at the proper angle can cause this i know i was the one that did it

Is the gas able to flow freely through and out of the bad burners? Sounds like they may be clogged somehow

Im trying to install this cooktop maytag mgc7430ws, there are two brackets in it and there is absolutely nothing in the instructions about how to attach it to the cabinet


I just put one of these in. You're right, there is nothing in the instructions about this, I had to figure it out for myself.
Your kit includes two brackety-shaped steel brackets and two long screws. Look on the bottom of your cooktop, halfway between the front and back on the left and right edges and you'll see a hole on each side. They are the only holes on the bottom.
Manipulate the brackets until you see that the hole in the bracket matches the hole in the bottom AND the bracket fits upward along the side of the cooktop. The flange on the top end of the bracket goes against the bottom of the countertop.
It's useful to have another person lift each end of the cooktop while you insert the bracket from below.
Once the brackets are in lace, center the cooktop so it's straight on the countertop, then screw the brackets to the bottom of the cooktop. They will tighten against the countertop and make the cooktop stop wiggling.

My glass cooktop has cracked across the top left corner. It has created a triangle, about 1-1/4 inch on each side. Is this a flaw in the glass?


most of the time for this to happen something would have had to been dropped or excessive weight on the unit ... it is possible over time the unit had a unseen hairline crack and the heat has caused it to become worse... the glass for these units are ridiculous in cost but can be repaired...
several online sites sell parts.... a few reputable companies are

Cant find model no.


You can generally found the model number for a cooktop in a few places. Sometimes the model number is faded or rubbed out. The first place I would check is directly on the bottom of the cooktop that is usually were you will find the model and serial number. Secondly, check on the units electrical box many times the label is to the right or left hand side. Lastly, some cooktops let you lift up the top to clean underneath and you can find the label somewhere around the edges.

Hope that was helpful.
Happy Holidays!

How to replace a cooktop drip pan


It's really simple. Remove the burner grates, removed the old drip pans, then drop in the new drip pans. You can order a new drip pan from partselect.com if you don't have one yet. Let me know how this works out and if you need any further help.

Broken glass cook top


The top can not be repaired. The glass must be replaced . DO NOT USE IT CRACKED!!!!!!!!!!!! This is very dangerous as it can explode from the temperature. Also this is a severe electrical danger as glass top units have exposed elements underneath. Any liquid at all can short it out and cause a fire. I don't know if it is worth repairing. I don't have the exact price for your cooktop but last one I priced was between $350 - $500.
