Damage to glass cooktop

My teenage son has damaged my beloved 4-5 year old black Thermadore ceramic cooktop. He put a Cuisinart stainless steel pot (with a copper layer) on one burner, turned the burner on high, and "forgot" to put the water in. He left the cooktop unattended for "several minutes", resulting in a ring of "schmutz" on the burner. Talk about not being able to boil water. Before he fessed up to what really happened, I thought it was a simple boil over and used cooktop cleaner and a single edge razor blade. When I realized this wasn't a typical boil over, he produced the ruined pot, and now I've got a big ring around the burner. It's light gray and it's not going anywhere. Is there a way for me to repair it myself? My brother, a general contractor, suggested jeweler's rouge. Is that a good idea? Be nice. If not, what else can I do? Do I have to replace the entire cooktop? I haven't tried to use that burner. I don't want to make it worse. Is it possible to replace just the glass top? Is that expensive?

SOURCE: oven light exploded and seems fused in socket

I was able to remove the base from the socket by inserting pliers and opening them so that they pressed against the inner sides of the base and then turning while exerting pressure.

SOURCE: Gas stove causing soot on everything

all of the burners are set to rich...open the vents on the burners more.  If this doesn't help you need smaller nozzles.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Range Error code EO F2

On this website: http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#Whirlpool , it shows all of the codes for the Whirlpool errors. Based on the remarks, if it shows a "4 digit failure code" it is "Shorted keypad"
"Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)"

But verify this as I am not an appliance repair specialist. I am a computer nerd who just knows how to find information. I am actually trying to figure out an answer to my own problem with my Whirlpool Gold Accubake.

I have a hole in my ceramic thermador induction cooktop


You really can't. Ceramic can be repaired but it can be short term. There may be a sealer they can put in the opening.

What types of materials are cat bowls made from?


Most cat bowls are made from one of three materials - plastic, ceramic/glass, or stainless steel. I recommend a ceramic/glass bowl. Many plastic bowls harbor bacteria and stainless steel bowls (although they are best for keeping water cool) are not heavy enough and will be easily tipped over by your cat.

Sharp insight glass ceramic cooktop, with a cracked glass. I need to replace the glass ceramic cooktop. Model kb 3300 js .... serial 112895. Will be shipped to Puerto Rico.


You can buy the substitution replacement part at searspartsdirect.com for $711.99 (price on 1/29/2011). This is a manufacturer authorized substitution part. I pasted the note about those. We need to purchase one too, but are searching for something less expensive. If we are unable to locate a less expensive option we will probably just buy a new stove, because the replacement cooktop costs almost as much as we paid for our unit when it was new. We are looking at a possible part from sharp for another unit which maybe compatible...if it is it would be $296 before s/h, etc. That is a better price, but still more than I would like to pay for a piece of ceramic glass.
Manufacturer authorized substitution: FANG-B022MRY0 may differ in appearance, but is a functional equivalent to prior parts including FANG-B001MRY0.
