Normally I would expect the user manual to cover this unusual behavior, but sometimes they don't. Most new ranges have a considerable amount of electronics controlling things like temperature etc. These controls used to be mechanical, and not so sensitive to heat. This likely is normal operation, and that the fan is blowing cold air in order keep the electronics cool, and to extend the life of the components -just like a computer.

Lift the ceramic top and look at the burnner to see if it is bad or not.
You only have to take 2 screws in the front of the ceramic top at the bottom, just open the oven door and look at the corners.
Don't forget to unplug the stove first

SOURCE: I used kitchenaid cooktop cleaner

make sure you are using the cleaner properly.
best way is to put it on like you would wax a car.
put on a heavy coating of cleaner and then let it dry, once it is fully dry, then use a wet towel and wipe it off, then dry with another towel and polish it to a shine. this should allow the stain to be absorbed into the cleaner and then will leave a "wax" on the surface to help prevent any future stains from happening.
if this doesnt work, then put on more cleaner and lay a wet paper towel over the stained area and cleaner. this will allow the cleaner to dry slower and should help to remove any stains.
by the way not all stains will come off the first or second cleaning.
just keep trying and the stain will come off. and if you get a spill again, wipe it off as soon as you can, even if the glass top is hot, it will help.

You can replace the failed component which is either the burner or the switch that controls the burner. A voltage test would have to be done to determine which compoonent has failed. Generaally it is worthwhile to repair the range.

New Kenmore elite range blows cold air from oven vent when top burners are on. Is this normal


That sounds a bit unusual.... Does the fan come on when you turn on the oven on bake? How about on broil? How about on self-clean. If it comes on in all those settings, then it may be working as designed. If NOT, they there may be a crossed wire, or you may have a malfunctioning control.

Hi, We have MAYTAG schott ceran flexchoice glass cooking top. Even after cleaning it with a ceramic glass top cleaner,stains are remaining on it. Can u please suggest what is the best way to clean it .


Sudha3025 -
Sorry to hear you're having trouble getting your cooktop clean.
You mention you are using a glass-ceramic cleaner but I would also suggest scrapping the stains with a NEW metal razor scraper. A cooktop scraper is similar to one you would use to scrape paint off your windowpanes at home and you can typically find them at a hardware store. The razor won't damage the surface like other abrasive sponges might. For best results, hold the scraper at approximately a 30 degree angle to the cooktop and protect your hands by wearing an oven mitt.
Also try using a Wieman sponge in conjunction with the cleaner on those stubborn stains.
As always, try to clean up spills, especially sugary ones, immediately when they happen, or get them away from the hot burner area and clean after every use.
Hope this is helpful!

Jenn air cook top


Yes you can. Call Jenn Air ((877) 232-6771) and give them your model number (serial is helpful too). They sent my replacement glass within a week. I have a model JED8430ABD from 2000 and they had the top. Fit perfectly and took about an hour to replace.

To change it out, after unplugging the cooktop, I removed the metal tape connecting the external vent shaft to the blower. Then I just lifted the entire cooktop out up out of the countertop so I could access the screws on the sides of the cooktop (looking at the edges of the new cooktop glass helped me figure out which screws to remove around the edge). Then I removed the 2 screws in the vent area on top (1 black screw on each side). And that released the cooktop glass from the metal box that holds the burners. I then took the rubber rings out of the knob holes so I could put them in the new cooktop (I almost missed that...). Finally, I put the new cooktop glass on, put the screws back in, lowered the cooktop back into the counter, and retaped the blower to the vent shaft. Voila!

I really wouldn't be afraid of doing this yourself if you are handy at all. And it will save you a ton. Good luck.

PS The screws around the perimeter are hexigon shapped, so you can't just use a screwdriver. I found my Black & Decker electric screwdriver had that same shaped hole that it held the bit, so I just pulled out the bit and used the screwdriver that way. Worked like a charm.

Scratches


a ceramic cooktop cleaner , adn a terrycloth towels, working in small circular motins you should be able to "lessen" the visiblity of the scratches, probly no t remove all together but lessen them anyway. watch the pots your using, no glass or ceramic pans, they will scratch every time and try to llift the pot to remove it and resist the temptation to slide and twist pot during operation
