    That's funny, I've been using a hotplate for about 3 years now. There wasn't any electric to use the stove after switching from gas and of course the day we are installing the outlet, someone decides to use the stove top as thier stepstool. Its kinda comical, but so dumb at the same time.

Roden Gas glass stovetop shattered MODEL GC73H


I have come across this occurence twice before.
With glass stove tops the glass is toughened and can generally withstand most temperatures associated with normal cooking situations. This, of course, assumes that there is sufficient space beneath the cooking utensil (saucepan, frying pan, etc) for air to circulate and the build up of heat to dissipate. If this cannot take place heat will build up to the point that the glass - a refractory material will no longer be able to withstand the internal and external forces created by the differences in internal and external temperatures and will thus shatter.
Though this is generally rare, it is known to take place and users are warned. Incidentally, this is the reason the shape of the glass top is the way it is and not the usual square as with other tops, in order for the heat to dissipate more easily.
In short, you should insist to your landlord that you were not misusing the appliance, but through genuine use this somewhat rare event occurred.

Broke glass on electric genn-air


Please do not use the stove if the element is viable because of broken glass, this could become a danger to yourself.

Look at the cost of a new stove, you should be able to get one for
around 400.00. One of my customers had a glass top with 4 burners,
they had the same thing happen, the cost to replace the top was
1,200.00. So I would assume that you can get a new stove with 4
burners less then it would cost to replace the part on a stove you don't like. Maybe there is a LOWES around you to look at stoves,
they seem to be everywhere,like death and taxes.

As for putting a 4 burner top on a stove that has 2 with grill, I don't think it can be done without the extra cost of adding the parts to run the other 2 burners, so like I said in the long run,it just might be cheaper to but a new stove. It should not be a big deal to remove the exhaust from the grill part of the stove.

I looked at the model# you put down,and it does not have a grill,
from what I see, there are 4 burners and a downdraft vent in between the 4 burners, there are 6 models with this part # and none have a grill,only the downdraft vent.

If the model# is right, the cost would be around 300.00 for the glass, and then the cost of having it replaced. So I would say over
400.00, In which case for the same amount you could have a new one, but you must weigh the difference for yourself and see what you think is the best way to go.
If you have any more questions,please post back and everyone is more than willing to help you. I hope I have helped a little.

I cracked my Schott Ceran Cooktop glass


I located a company that supplies a new top but only to find that the tops are 400.00 anyway. I ended up purchasing a new stove to solve the problem.

Replace the glass stove top


Probably more than it is worth. Last time I got a price it was for around $500.

Replacement of glass top


Unplug first! Find the screws that hold the cooktop to the range. Usually in the front just above the oven door when it is closed on the underside. This should release the cooktop. The burners and wiring may have to be removed. You can order the part at sears.com.
