How to remove burnt grease, fix lightly scratched black stovetop?

I am trying to remove a very recent Burnt Grease from my Black stove top. While trying using Lysol Cleaner, Windex, Soap & Water and a scratch pad that is not very abrasive, I dulled and lightly scratched part of the area where the burnt grease is on. What effective products can I use to remove the burnt grease, and repolish the area with the lightly dulled sctatched surface?

Hi, I assume we are talking about a flat glass top. First the bad news. using any abrasives will permanently scratch the glass hence the dull spot. You can however make it look a little better. Grease spots and the like can be removed with a flat razor blade scraper which needs to be held flat to avoid the corners making scratches. Use any good glass/ceramic cooktop cleaner ( which is the ONLY cleaner you should ever use ) (available in your local grocery diy store and some hardware stores). The cleaner is a thick liquid, put about a dime size drop on each burner area and use a paper towel to buff out the finish like waxing a car. Once it looks clean flip your paper towel over and shine the top to like new. Good Luck!

There is this white stuff sold for glass-top stoves. I presume it is good old iron cleaner, a very mild cleaner/polish. Also consider toothpaste.

FRONT BURNER HAS NEVER WORKED, HOW CAN I OPEN FLAT TOP AND TRY TO FIX IT?


First, determine if the burner element works by swapping it with a similar sized element on the stove. The eyes pull up and out away from where they go under the deck. If the burner works, the problem is likely with the receptacle, which is located below the deck. Trip your stove breaker, which is located at the panel by your meter. Make sure that the power is off completely. Raise the stovetop (deck) by lifting the front edge of the deck sharply. Some tops have a rod to hold them up; some do not. The receptacle has a screw that holds it to the top, and sometimes a clip. You can check the voltage at the receptacle. If the receptacle has any evidence of chipping, or having been burnt or damaged, it should be replaced. Replacement receptacles can be obtained at Lowes, H/Depot, similar. You'll have to cut the wires on the old one, install the shrink tubing, install the new receptacle, make up the connections, tape them up and apply the shrink tubing supplied. Sounds like a lot, but there relly isn't much to it. It takes longer to tell it than to do it! (Once you've done it a few times!)
Best regards, --W/D--

Viking pro 6 burner cooktop igniter won't stop clicking after lighting on two of the burners


Do not attempt if your stovetop is hot, you will get burned!!

This is an easy fix, the problem is your burners aren't lined up properly. Remove the iron grates (what your pots rest on) and the burner cap (the round black top on the burner) and finally the burner base (the round golden colored piece resting on the stainless stovetop). If you flip the base over you will see that it is keyed, meaning there is a grove that fits the indentation on the stove top. When you replace the base make sure to line the grove up with the indentation. If it's not flush with the stove top, slowly twist the round burner base until it falls into place. That's it!

Burnt on stains on the inside glass door of my kitchenaid oven


DeBruce Polish should remove those types of problems and also render the surface more "Cleanable". This stuff really works on glass anomalies.

Can't remove burnt milk from right burner on stovetop?


I'm happy to say burnt milk can be removed with a combination of cerama bryte and let sit for one hour and then lots o elbow grease hard rubbling with also applying Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works very well but you have to still rub alot to get it safely scratch-free removed.

Whirlpool Oven, Ceran stove top


I want to say that since I posted my original problem with black spots appearing on the Schott Ceran top, I took pictures of the top and attached them to a complaint sent to Maytag. Approximately 3 days later, a Maytag representative phoned and offered a brand new top-basically stating that there is a fault with the tops. They would not pay for the labor to replace the top. My husband downloaded the instructions from Maytag website and installed it himself. These spots actually appear from within the surface and are not the result of a boil over, etc. The spots on my burner grew to the width of the burner. If you search the internet, you will see many others with the same problem with the Schott Ceran tops. I will never buy another!
