Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

Open Question

ICan my ceramic glass cooktop on my range be repaired?

I left a tea kettle on the power burner on my ceramic glass cooktop with the spout open so that it did not whistle. I caught it before I burned the house down. I let everything cool before I removed the kettle. When I did, I found that the cooktop burner had melted with the bottom of the kettle in 3 places on the burner. The glass top is not broken, but the melted spots have an indentation in them. This cooktop is part of a Kenmore range, not a separate cooktop. Can it be fixed? Sears repair reps say yes, but I don't want to pay a $70 service charge for them to actually come out and then tell me it is beyond repair. I welcome any advice. Thanks.

SOURCE: melted plastic (teapot whistle) on glass cooktop

Hello. I don't know if this will work but you could try getting it as cold as you can and maybe it will come off that way. If it were me I would use my refrigerant, but I am sure you don't have that. Who knows maybe ice will work. Now that I think about it, maybe you can carefully use some sand paper being sure you don't scratch the surface.

Epoxy would not work. If it is a very small chip and is NOT STRUCTURAL or in the heated are you could TRY the adhesive used for rear view mirror to glass attachment.

try using an oven cleaner spray... let the range heat up a little..then spray oven cleaner

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.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The short answer is yes it can be repaired, however it requires replacing the glass top unfortunately...and as you may or may not know they are usually well in the range of $500-600 or more.

You can check on the availablilty of your particular cooktop at the link shown here or you may opt to contact a local service center.

Crack on the corner - we have a run on the ceramic


Glass on cooktops are not fixable - due to the chance of electrical shocks the manufacturer strongly suggest replacement of the glass.
