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.

Glass cooktop cracked


Glass cooktops can be removed/replaced with the aid of two small screwdrivers. Gently go around the outer rim using the two screwdrivers like tyre levers don't due too much pressure and it will generally lift quite easily.

I need a replacement glass top for my Thermador CEP 365/CET365 cooktop. It is cracked but works fine. Where can I get this?


contact the service agent for the brand to see if a replacement glass is available
in reality you are not required to replace the glass as glass breaks in normal use and is out of your control and in renters terms comes under fair wear and tear

My glass cooktop has cracked across the top left corner. It has created a triangle, about 1-1/4 inch on each side. Is this a flaw in the glass?


most of the time for this to happen something would have had to been dropped or excessive weight on the unit ... it is possible over time the unit had a unseen hairline crack and the heat has caused it to become worse... the glass for these units are ridiculous in cost but can be repaired...
several online sites sell parts.... a few reputable companies are

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.

Glass top


The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.

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.
