Streaky, filmy black stove top

I have a almost new Maytag stainless steel gas stove. I have tried everything I can think of but I can't get the black top to look clean. There is always streaks or a filmy look, even though I know it's not dirty. Is there something out there that would eliminate this? I've already been to Home Depot but the woman in the stove department couldn't help me.

Re: Streaks

After a final clean up with a a wet & well rinsed cloth buff the surface with a microfibre cloth & it will look like new.

If there re any difficult ares to remove use a glass cooktop
paste cleaner (from Sears, etc)then and finish off with the microfibre cloth.

    A microfibre cloth is a soft fuzzy surfaced synthetic material which is very effective for the final touch when cleaning shiny surfaces such as glass, chrome or stainless steel products. Great for the inside of car windows too.

    They can be found in a housewares department or in the automotive cleaning dept.

    Let me know how this works.

What kind of cookware is recommended for glass top stoves


Glass ones work best, but any heavy metal will also work. Heavy gauge not heavy weight. The lighter metal tends to bend and warp after a lot of use. If the bottom of the pans are not absolutely flat, these stoves will not heat the pan very well, which is why the glass cookware is the best to use, since it will not warp.

How do I adjust the flame on a MGC5430 gas cooktop? Flames are too yellow and cause black soot on bottom of pans. Doesn't seem to have an air shutter adjustment


Is this unit set up for natural gas or propane? New stoves usually come with ORIFACES for both gasses. They would install between the on/off knob and the burner tube under the stove top. They may be tapped to the under burner area of your stove. If you lift your top stove cover you may find them. If you don't find them, you may need to purchase the correct applications for your stove. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

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.

I have a glass 4 gas burner stove top and cracked the glass, can I replace it? Its a GE Profile with a stainless steel front lip


Yes the glass is replaceable, you will have to order a new one, and you could do so through an appliance parts store. They can even put it in for you.

I cannot get my burners on my stainless steel gas stove top clean


What I would try. Assuming the "burners" means the cast iron assemblies on top of the stainless steel, remove them to an area outside. Perhaps on a piece of plywood, and clean them with oven cleaner. Grease may drip off them, so a deck or driveway are unacceptable. Wear gloves and watch splatters. Wash thoroughly with fresh water before reusing. Beware. Caustic chemicals can discolor stainless

Whirlpool Oven, Ceran stove top


I want to say that since I posted my original problem with black spots appearing on the Schott Ceran top, I took pictures of the top and attached them to a complaint sent to Maytag. Approximately 3 days later, a Maytag representative phoned and offered a brand new top-basically stating that there is a fault with the tops. They would not pay for the labor to replace the top. My husband downloaded the instructions from Maytag website and installed it himself. These spots actually appear from within the surface and are not the result of a boil over, etc. The spots on my burner grew to the width of the burner. If you search the internet, you will see many others with the same problem with the Schott Ceran tops. I will never buy another!
