Question about Kitchen Ranges
I was given a Kenmore range, approximately 6 years old, with a glass top. It has a button for the stove's clock and up and down arrows. I need to know how to set the time on this range. model number C968-65251-1
SOURCE: glass top range cookware
Here's the recommended cookware for glass top ranges:
Aluminum and Copper - have good heating characteristics, but may leave metal transfer marks on the glass.
Stainless - may take longer to heat and may not heat as evenly (some stainless has a copper liner to aid in heat transfer). More resistant to leaving metal transfer marks.
Baked Enamel - great heating characteristics, provides uniform heating and resists marks on glass surface.
Cast Iron - NOT recommended due to the weight of the metal. Can cause potential cracks or breakage.
Now, any reference to metal transfer marks are merely disclaimers from most manufacturers that the potential exists that the cookware could leave marks on the stove surface. Using a good cook-top cleaning product after the surface cools will aid in removing any of these marks. This does not mean this cookware should not be used.
All cookware used on glass cook-tops should have flat bottoms. There should be no ridges, grooves, or warping. This creates an uneven heat transfer between the pan and surface and can potentially cause the glass to break. Most manufacturers will not honor a warranty where it can be determined that the consumer used the wrong cookware.
Make sure you wipe up any spills on the stove surface that contains sugars or milk. These ingredients (if allowed to burn on the surface and are not cleaned up) will eventually cause damage to the glass surface by either removing the finish or leaving pits and cracks. Wipe up all spills AFTER the surface has been allowed to cool using a non-abrasive cleaning rag or sponge. The green scrubbing pads are considered non-abrasive and CAN be used. DO NOT use steel wool or SOS pads! A small straight blade razor can be used to remove stubborn items by gently scraping in one direction. I don't believe you can use any cleaning product that contains ammonia either.
All of this information can be found in the owners manual that came with the appliance. If you don't have a user/owner's manual, post back with your model number and I'll see if I can locate it for you. I hope this helps you.

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

Pretty much everything on earth CAN be replaced but it will become your call how much you are prepared to spend to accomplish that. I suggest you contact any Frigidaire dealer or repair site and provide them with your model number and ask for a replacement top price. Not sure that helps but it should get you headed in the right direction.. There are also many online appliance part sites that you can get a better feel for the cost of your glass top ..

I just moved into a new apartment and my stove wasn't working properly. After reading the very helpful information posted by kd3ke, I decided to turn off the breaker to my stove, take off the back covering, and check out what was back there. I was experiencing the same problem as posted.... the burner light, oven light and clock were all working however, the burners did not get hot nor did the oven. After taking off the back panel, the cord did have just as he stated, a black, white, and red wire however the plug attatching to the stove did not have cordinating colors. It was just a grey cord with 3 copper wire heads. It seemed to me that the cord was twisted and therefore everything was backwards. Since I was relying on his post, that would explain why the stove still did have some power, just not all, because the voltagages were wrong. I flipped the three cord wires, reconnected them to the stove and then plugged it in and turned on the breaker... everything works now!!! :) I don't know if this will help anyone else since it may not be the same problem if your stove was working properly previously, but it fixed the problem for me since I had just moved in.

Hello ewaters56 - Honestly, I suggest contacting a professional to have the inner glass panel replaced and I do not recommend for the oven to be used.
