Two possible reasons come to mind.  1. There most likely was a short circuit that activated the top unit. Was any part of the top glowing when you looked at it while it was crackling?
2. Be aware that glass tops CANNOT take as heavy a load of pots and pans as a STANDARD range can. The glass will crack. The stress can accumulate over a period of time and you will be left with the 4 am  madness dim experienced. 
If anyone out there finds themselves in a similar situation, don't wait when  you hear the crackling. Pull the the range plug, or find the ranges circuit breaker in your electrical box and turn it off.

Go to your electric circuit panel. Locate the breaker for the stove. Turn it all the way OFF then back ON. This should correct your problem.

REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok

Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Stove top pilot light

I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.
