Hi, I have a kitchen aid glass top stove, approx 2-3 years old. I left a tea kettle on it, (too long) it melted a nickle size divit out of the glass and 2 cracks run out from the divit in opposing directions...
question 1: can i still safely use the other burners? the crack does not go over or near the other burners.
question 2, how can i replace this without a taking out a second mortgage on the house? ps ive been told it would be cheaper to buy another stove altogether
You can buy replacement tops for your range. Check with your manufacturer for local parts distributors or service locations and they should be able to find you one. There is also online part stores that sell them like http://www.partadvantage.com/store anywhere from 150-400$
Since nobody has posted any suggestions, here's what I'm going to try to do to fix mine. The glass on my stove measures roughly 27" x 20" it is sealed with what looks like the same rubber material that is used to seal window glass. I'm going to the glass place today to see how much it would cost to cut a piece of black glass to that size and then install it myself using a similar type of caulk sealant that is heat resistant.

The KitchenAid ovens that I know will turn off when you press Off (unless the control lock is on - then you need to disable the control lock). The Warming Drawer will have a separate Off button. Dual oven units require you to select which oven and then press off.
The first thing I would check is the breaker for the oven at the breaker box. I have encountered similar problems and a partially thrown breaker ( or one pole of a double-pole breaker) can cause this. Find your "range breaker" in your breaker box and cut it off then flip it back on. There is a good chance that might fix your breaker. If it is an older house with fuses, then the range would be on two fuses and one of them is blown. This happens to dryers also (if the right fuse/breaker goes, the motor runs but it won't heat)
Hope this helps
1. Open the oven door and remove the 2 screws at the side of the inner glass window 11cm above the hinges and lift off the door. Place it somewhere safe! 2. Remove the 4 screws that you can see nearest to the left and right edges of the oven with the door removed. These secure the oven to the kitchen unit. 3. Slide the oven forwards about 20cm out of the unit, being careful not to pull on the cable. 4. Each hinge is held in place by 2 screws at the side of the unit now exposed, about 18cm apart. Remove them and slide out the hinges. Reassembly is the reverse of the above. 5. Note that the hinges have no means of adjustment. If not working properly, renew them.
First, I would not delay in notifying your builder by phone and then follow up in writing so that you have a record that you have told him about the problem. Your stove may still be under warranty. He should be able to direct you to filing a claim. One question though, does your oven have a "Sabbath Mode" setting? If so, that could interfere with the regular operation of the oven. What style and model number is the oven?
I have used a 8 qt. pressure canner (which holds 4 qt) and have done beans and venison. It also holds quarts. I also use an 8 qt. faberware kettle that holds 5 or 6 pint jars with a metal spacer from my pressure canner on the bottom. No problems for 10 years......except my self cleaning oven doesn't work but I don't think that has any thing to do with the canning on top. The bottom of the kettle has to be SMOOTH and FLAT so a regular canner (blue, ribbed bottom) won't work. Burner will come on and off.
