Plastic melted on burner- how to remove?

1) Accidently laid one of those heat resistant hot pads that are like rubber and it melded onto the burner surface
2) Accidently knocked a plastic vegetable container from the store on another burner and it melted on.
Anyone know if I can remove these melded on chemicals or do I have to buy a new top range?
Thank you!

Just allow all the plastics/rubber and burners to cool and then peel off any melted plastic/rubber. Wipe the burners with a mild cleaner like Formula 409.

You may get a little smoke and odor the next time you turn the burners on next time, or if you didn't remove all the plastic.

Reply back if you have any additional questions.

If you can break away the plastic then you will be fine, but never use a scraper on them. If all fails replace.

Is there a seal between the nozzle and the tip? I have glue leaking out everywhere??

No, no seal. The heating element is just a heated tube with the nozzle simply threaded into its end. The heating element in your glue gun may be cracked. Or... possibly... you (or someone in your household) got it hot and laid it down and left it that way for a LONG time, and the melted glue backed up inside the heating element. A glue gun should never be laid on its side while hot but idle, especially for long periods of time.

On my glasstop a hot pad melted on it how can i get it off without scratching it

Hi, Ms. Stubblefied. I am sorry to learn about the heating pad melting on your range top. You can use cooktop cleaner to try to remove what you can from the top of the range. Then, using an oven mitt to cover your hand, turn the burn on very low, and use a scraper to gently remove the melted pad. Be sure to use care as the burner will be on. You may not want to do this if the scraper is plastic, as that may melt to the range top. If you do not want to do this, then you may need service. Here is a link you can use if you need service:

The on off switch broke off.

If you are under the age of 18 please get a parent or an adult to supervise please. This repair calls for a Hot Soldering Iron and or another hot heat source to melt plastic. You can be injured and nobody wants that.
If it broke on the copter itself you may be able to remove the switch and replace and resolder. If it happened on the remote open the remote and remember to keep track of how many screws and whee they came fromonce you have the top cover off get a small screw and heat it while holding it with a pair of plyers or hemostats, not red ht but hot enough to melt into whatever remaining plastic is left of the original switch. If NO plastic is left then you have to eaiher replace the switch itself, requireing you to find an available swith and resoildering it onto the board. Good Luck!

I have plastic melted on my glass top (son let plastic bag touch hot burner). i can NOT get it off. any suggestions?

Getting the plastic hot again may allow you to remove the bulk of it. I'd use something wooden to scrape with. I'm assuming that the glass top you're talking about is an electric stove. You have this listed under the "Timers" category and not many of them have glass tops. Dabbing a small amout of acetone onto the plastic without touching the glass any more than you have to should help you disolve the plastic so you can finish scraping it away.

black caliper and black caliper bracket = ATE (Teves), the other color is Akebono. To replace pads, use a screwdriver to stick into slot to pry caliper open a bit.

Replace caliper onto rotor and bracket. Insert pins and tighten securely (you can lubricate the pins) Replace plastic boot covers. Install wheels. Lower vehicle.
