Using a cracked cooktop is highly dangerous. i have seen these cooktops shatter because of people using them with a crack. One shattered so bad that the glass was found all over the kitchen and the ajoining living room.

Please dont use it, for your safety, repair or replaced the unit

Cooktop cracked suddenly just after cooking


Not exactly "safe" to use. If I remember right in my travels, Algona Iowa had a used and vintage appliance parts store. I am sure there are plenty of others out there but I know they exist.

May I cook on the rounds not cracked when the stovetop glass is cracked?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

First, go to Lowe's or Home depot. Purchase a electrical tape rated for 700 Degrees F. and seal the crack.

Second, you want to make sure no fluid or what ever gets into the crack. This will knock out your heating element and burner control.

Third, You can use the other burners. The temperature may be a bit higher than the burner control indicates.

Fourth, Purchase a new glass top. There are only a couple of screws that hold it on.

Fifth, Go into the following web site. Put in your model number. This should be on a metal plate after you open the oven door, on the face of the unit. Plug in your model number.

Sixth, On the diagram on this site locate the part number for the glass top. Search the internet for best price.

Cracked cook top glass


unfortunatley there is no way of repairing those. Even if you look at tops on the internet, they are usually about 1/3 of what the stove cost. Check your owners manual. Some of the tops are garunteed for 5 years from "accidental" cracks. That's about your best bet.

REPLACE CRACKED GLASS COOK TOP


First of all, if the cook-top broke as a result of a manufacturer defect, the repairs should be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. In this case, the repairs would be done at no cost to you. If, however, the glass top was broken as a result of the consumer, the repair will not be covered (even if it is still under warranty). If this is the case, it does not require an engineer to replace a glass cook-top. It can be time consuming, though. If you are somewhat savvy with fixing things, it can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. The following link explains how to replace most glass cooktops:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r391448-replacing_glass_cook_top

The tedious part of replacing the cook-top is carefully removing and handling each burner element. These are usually ceramic and are very fragile. You must be handled with care. If there is no common disconnect, you also will be required to unplug each burner assembly one at a time and label the wires. A digital camera can come in very handy for this as well. The easiest way to do this is to remove the old shattered cook-top, first and lay it side by side with the new one. Remove and install one burner element at a time.

If you wish to pursue this and require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

I have cracked half of my ceramic stove top and am wondering if I can use the other half until I get it replaced? Also, I am wondering what the cost of replacing the ceramic cook top would be?


You can but its not a great idea. The heating and cooling of the surface burners will just crack it even worse. I wouldnt advise you to use it. But it can be used for very minimal cooking.

Cracked glass top


Your crack was most likely cause by a flaw in the glass top. Most GE smooth-top ranges (espesially if manufactured prior to 1/1/06) have a five year warranty covering this type of failure. The labor is not covered after the first year. Check the back pages of your use and care book for warranty info on your model. I'd advise against continued use of the cook top with a crack, as spills can get to components and cause further damage.
