Scratches because of steel wool

My mom accidentally used a steel wool to clean the steel looking panel where the knobs are on my cooktop. Is there any way to fix this? or cover the scratches?

Someone else suggested Easy Off Oven Cleaner (I used fume free). I just finished using the Easy Off (make sure you cover the electronic ignition) with Q-Tips and my top looks almost as clean as when I first got it.

A gas ring does not remain lit after lighting on one of the burners on my Borsch brushed steel gas hob


Seems like one of the thermocouples has failed or it may just be dirty. There should be 2 "prongs" sticking up toward the burner. 1 is for the ignition and causes the spark to jump to the burner and light it. The other is a thermocouple which senses the heat from the flame and operates a magnetic device on the gascock to keep the gas flowing. If the thermocouple is faulty, damaged, dirty, it may not sense the heat and therefore, the flame will keep going out. Make sure the end of it is clean and the burner is positioned properly on its base. The thermocouple is usually a steel rod sticking up. This can be easily cleaned with a bit of steel wool or scourer. Do NOT scrape or scour the ignition prong as this is made from porcelain and can break very easily. It is usually white in colour, with a little metal cap or stud on the end. sometimes , the knob wears and you cant push it down far enough to lock the magnet when the flame is on. Pull the knob off and try stuffing a little bit of paper down the hole in the knob which goes onto the gascock shaft.. This will allow you to push the shaft down further and thus ensure the magnet is locking onto the gascock. If you are unsure, try a knob from one of the other burners that you are not having trouble with and see if that works, if it does, then you know its the knob, Cheers, Steve

Fix scratches on stainless steel appliance


The professionals in order to remove the scratches from st. steel they use special metal wire meshes like soft scotch bride attached on special rotary milling machine. They brush it in the direction of the grooves on the st. steel surface. They start with a hard brush and they reduce the strength until they finalise it as the original finish. If it a brush surface this is more easy than a polished mirror surface. These procedure need experience and care so you will not end up with more damage than the original one.

Our cooktop knobs for our model JGC8536 Jenn-air cooktop are made of plastic and melt if a pot gets to close. Are there any metal knobs available?


What color is your cook-top? The stainless model may have actual steel knobs.. End your model number with "s" when looking for the parts..
If you have stainless and they are still plastic "stainless look" knobs then call the manufacturer as they would be the only ones to be able to determine if there is a metal knob available for your unit.
Good luck!

Have a kitchenaid gas cook top with the flat cooking surface in the middle for griddling. But its all dark brown and discolored especially around the back. I cant see to get it clean or get the brown...


A few cycles in the dishwasher may help. Oven cleaner on the surfaces (pre warmed if possible). Please do NOT use anything abrasive (no metal scrubs, no steel wool, etc.). Ceramic surface cleaner (Ceramibright?) can be used safely.
