Can the glass of a whirlpool cerano hob suddenly crack?

You didn't need 'red hot' to simmer. When you got it red hot, and then put the pan on it, the pan sucked the heat out of the ring to fast, and caused stress in the glass causing it to crack. Tops are meant to be used the way you used it. Your fault I am afraid.

The top can be replaced.

whirlpool offers a five year warranty on glass cooktops for thermal damage only not for customer mishaps so call a certified repair place and they can get you a new cooktop if you tell them that it is thermal cracking

Kitchenaid 36" glass cooktop with small crack

A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

Ceramic glass stove is cracked

You should be able to replace the top only.
Normally if this is your fault, it is not covered by warranty. Normally this would be if you dropped something onto it. This would leave like a star shap series of cracks.
If its down to manufacture, this should be covered under warranty. This damage normally looks like just one long crack, no impact mark.
Check with the manufacturer

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.

GE gas cooktop

Wow, never heard of that,.... bleeding through glass? I checked the GE service web site and there are no Service Bulletins relating to anything like this. I guess if it were mine and I had that history with it, I'd try the new top, but removing the gasket and first putting a layer of foil duct tape on the underside of the new glass top, then use some new foam gasket material under the cooktop. Good luck. Please don't bother to rate this solution, as anything but a fixya will lower my rating. Thanks.

Broken glass cook top

The top can not be repaired. The glass must be replaced . DO NOT USE IT CRACKED!!!!!!!!!!!! This is very dangerous as it can explode from the temperature. Also this is a severe electrical danger as glass top units have exposed elements underneath. Any liquid at all can short it out and cause a fire. I don't know if it is worth repairing. I don't have the exact price for your cooktop but last one I priced was between $350 - $500.

Glass cooktop keeps cracking in same area

The cooktop box has a metal flange. Make sure the cooktop when dropped into the countertop is resting on ther metal flange and not the glass edge by itself. If it rests on the glass alone the weight will cause the glass to crack at some point in time.
