Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop
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.

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.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
try using an oven cleaner spray... let the range heat up a little..then spray oven cleaner
a new glass top will cost over $600.00 just for the glass.
