Open Question

Kenmore Electric Glass cooktop made a pop sound - stops working

My wife was heating water on the cooktop when the cooktop made a distinct pop sound and shutdown. The circuit breaker shut off as well. I reset the circuit breaker and the cooktop lights come on but all the display read "E" which I am assuming stands for Error. The cooktop won't turn on and has stopped working.
Anyone knows what could be wrong? Anyone had a similar problem?

Poping sound, sparks shooting out and 220 circuit breaker out


Did you move the breaker fully off before turning it back on? make sure the offending burner is off.

It sounds as though the element shorted out.

CAN YOU USE CAST IRON SKILLETS ON RADIANT GLASS COOK TOPS?


you CAN use the skillet, but not with great results id assume, it holds too much heat, and problaby a bit too rough underneath and would probably scratch the glass top, in a family business for over 20 yrs. now and thats my recomendation, my brother also in the same feild swears his wife uses it with no issues!!!

Burners on JP326 electric not heating


Sounds like breaker tripped so no 220 to unit. Reset breaker. The burner switch you first turned on probably blew out and needs replacing, so don't turn it on again. If all else works ok, then that is it. Unless you are handy you may want to call the repair man.
