    the fornt right burner on my Corning model R30JB stove glass top doesn't heat. how can I fix it?



1 Answer

You MUST use flat bottom pans on three of the four burners, the back right burner is the multi-pan burner and accepts any type pan. You'll notice the other burners have a circle in the center, that is the thermostat that reads the temp of the pan, that burner type needs the flat bottom pan to work correctly. The multi-pan has no thermostat and it will boil water in any pan.

Good luck

Maytag precision touch control 500 electric smoothtop

The heating coils in the oven need to be inspected very carefully where they plug in to the oven wall. You will need to remove the back covers and check the insulators and wiring harnesses. Over time the insulation can break down and oxidize the metal connections. You can use a voltmeter or test light to verify that the coils are getting voltage from the thermostat/switch. replacing parts is cheaper than buying new if you can find the parts.

Roden Gas glass stovetop shattered MODEL GC73H

I have come across this occurence twice before.
With glass stove tops the glass is toughened and can generally withstand most temperatures associated with normal cooking situations. This, of course, assumes that there is sufficient space beneath the cooking utensil (saucepan, frying pan, etc) for air to circulate and the build up of heat to dissipate. If this cannot take place heat will build up to the point that the glass - a refractory material will no longer be able to withstand the internal and external forces created by the differences in internal and external temperatures and will thus shatter.
Though this is generally rare, it is known to take place and users are warned. Incidentally, this is the reason the shape of the glass top is the way it is and not the usual square as with other tops, in order for the heat to dissipate more easily.
In short, you should insist to your landlord that you were not misusing the appliance, but through genuine use this somewhat rare event occurred.

Have you tried using a razor blade scraper. Also I have found Ceramabrite cooktop cleaner to be a very good product. There is also a less abrasive scouring pad available specifically for glass cooktops.

Will burner get too hot

Hello Pinewood7. The issue here is concern from what you have heard. Don't worry! All you are doing is boiling water. The system will allow constant heat for what you are doing. Use this as a test. Put your largest pot on the top full of water and set on high. Attach your thermometer to the side and see what happens. I know several people who use these tops for canning with excellent results. My sister in law has had yours for years and not an issue with jams. Hope this helps with your concerns.
