Stovetop ceramic burner turned black and smooth

My stovetop ceramic burner has turned partially black. It is a smooth black and will not scrap off or rub off. I've tried! It looks awful. Please help me.

    Well- I have tried the cream clenser, the baking soda and lemon juice, soaking, scrubbing, scraping. The problem is that it's a gray speckled stove and I'm starting to worry that it is not a stain, but that the speckles have actually come off some how (burn or scrape). The area (about the size of 2 quarters) is smooth, not rough like the rest of the stove. The stove does not appear to be damaged, but I'd like to know if there is anyway to replace the speckles.

Do you have a proper ceramic top scraper ?, if not buy one (about £10 UK)

Get a bottle of cream cleanser and a plastic type pan scrubber

Soak the area with warm water , pour on some cream cleanser and work it in with the scrubber , when you have formed a nice creamy froth use the scraper to get underneath the scorching

It is a lot of hard work but it does come off

Gouges in ceramic stovetop. Roasting pan set on a very hot burner. Pan had remnants of plastic packaging on the bottom. Plastic packaging hit the burner and explosive bits of ceramic blew up.


Lots of plastics have a very low melting point and such plastic coming into contact with a very hot surface would probably vaporise fairly explosively and that is likely to be the cause.

I have a Kenmore 790.96224 electric range and the burners and oven do not work, but the clock is working. how do i fix?


Try replacing ONE stovetop burner and see if the new one works. If it does, replace more stovetop burners. If the new ones all work, replace the oven burners.

If that first replacement stovetop burner STILL doesn't work, don't replace any more. Instead, check (or have checked) the circuit breaker for the range. It may get power from a second source to power the clock.

GE gas stovetop burner doesn't light


there are sparker modules on each burner behind the button, it may be that yours is failed, if you turn on other knob and you see spark at problem burner and still isn't lighting you have to make sure the black or grey tops are paced on perfectly, just give them a little nudge and you have to make sure area is perfectly clean for spark to take effect, spark will go for cleanest area on metal. so ensure area is clean and check burner top

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove


  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

The flame on my gas stovetop won't get larger


If this was not always the case then the orifice is partially plugged & needs cleaning.
If this was always the case then someone may have squashed the gas line when changing the orifice (perhaps to or from propane?). In this case you will need to change this part of the piping.
