You probably need to replace it. They are though fairly expensive. A little under $200 to be exact. http://www.partstore.com/ModelSearch.aspx?MfgName=Maytag&BrandName=JennAir&CloselyRelatedModels=true&ModelNumber=JED8430&x=41&y=30

SOURCE: broken glass cook top

The top can not be repaired. The glass must be replaced . DO NOT USE IT CRACKED!!!!!!!!!!!! This is very dangerous as it can explode from the temperature. Also this is a severe electrical danger as glass top units have exposed elements underneath. Any liquid at all can short it out and cause a fire. I don't know if it is worth repairing. I don't have the exact price for your cooktop but last one I priced was between $350 - $500.

SOURCE: GE Cooktop JP930 surface element not working

It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.

SOURCE: glass top

The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.

I used Mr. Clean multi-surface and the green, back side of the sponge. Turned on a light to show visible stains better, and scrubbed away. It didn't scratch the glass and got it out quick. Hope this helps.

Why not refer this issue directly to KitchenAid. Maybe they can explain the disparity between what the installation sheet shows and what you actually don't see.

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop

First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.

The circuit breaker for out kitchenaid glass


Water probably did get into the switch(es). The best bet for a fast fix is to pull the knobs off and use an air can (like for blowing dust out electronics) to blow down into the holes. This will dry out any water in there and should allow you to use it again. To be extra sure, blow out the switches and leave the knobs off over night. In the morning the knobs can be replaced and the cook top should be good to use. Hope this helps!

I was cooking popcorn on my glass cooktop and the pan appears to have scratched to surface.


You may have melted the bottom of the pan you were using into the glass. Copper bottom and alum pans sholdnot be used at high temps on a glass top. (never use porclin or glass pots)High temps can etch(mark or discolor) the glass.

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.

Kitchenaid 36" glass cooktop with small crack


A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

Burnt on stains on the inside glass door of my kitchenaid oven


DeBruce Polish should remove those types of problems and also render the surface more "Cleanable". This stuff really works on glass anomalies.
