Replacing glass top stove HELP!!!

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

    Hi, I dropped a Pepper Mill on my glass top stove, and chiped off a small piece on the edge... I really don't want to replace the entire stove it is not that bad, but it bothers me. Does anyone know if there is any way to repair this or some type of filler?

    My son dropped a glass bowl from the overhead microwave onto the stove...completely ruined it. There is even a hole down into the stove. Cracks to 3 of the 4 burners and into the warming center. (So glad I wasn't home at the time of the destruction, I could have been writing this E-mail from prison!) Sears will come out to see the problem for a minimum of $65, it will be around $260 to replace the glass top and hinges, or we can get a new stove for $329 (not glass top). What to do? What to do?

    I left a pot of water boiling for too long.  Water evaporated and the pot cooked on the stove for a bit.  Left a "metal ring type of stain".  Not sure if there is a cleaning solution that will work.  If it needs to be replaced I am not sure how to go about that.

    I noticed a crack in my glass top of my stove yesterday and the crack runs across the whole top. Is there something I can buy or do to fix it and does anyone know if it will get worse or something happen if I continue to use my burners??? Stove is only a few years old so this really sucks.

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 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.

Same problem, and we continued to cook on the stove and the cracks just spread, eventually creating a couple of holes! A good solution would be greatly appreciated.

    I had this problem (cracked glass top) and solved it by replacing the top. Sears Parts can get you a new top for about $300. To install, open the oven door and look upward and you will see two silver colored screws. Remove both. Now gently pull up and out slightly on the control panel.
    This should reveal two screws on the very sides of the front panel underneath that hold the chrome trim strips that are on each side of the glass top. When these screws are removed gently pull up on the trim strips and then out. After both are removed you can loosen the screws that secure the top assembly to the front of the range. As I am assuming you top is broken into pieces, now carefully remove any loose pieces of glass, being careful not to let
    pieces fall into the elements and/or below. After the loose pieces are removed gently pull up on the glass top assembly. After you have lifted the front about 2 inches, gently pull the top assembly toward you and lift it off, being careful not to drop any loosened glass pieces. Now you can use you vacuum cleaner to carefully clean the glass from within the heating element and remove any glass that fell into the element assembly. After all of the glass is cleaned out slide you new top assembly back on to your range. Replace the two screws and reinstall the two chrome strips (one on each side) and lift the control panel back over the two guide pins and secure it in place with the two chrome screws.

My daughter-in-law just moved in to a newer home with a stainless steel Kitchen Aid ceramic top stove. It has a warming oven, a convect feature etc. However, with options etc. it is very confusing to...

Kitchen Aid manuals are available from their support site: . The model number is needed to locate the manual. For ranges, the plaque with the model number is inside the oven door.

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.

See for a similar range. (ceramic glass cooktop, convection feature and warming drawer)

I hope this helps.

We have a Kitchen Aid Electric stove about 10 years old and there was no owners manual left from the last owner. This week we turned on the oven and there is no heat from the elements on both the bake and...

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

Dhow do i remove stoves efa600H oven door hinges?

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?

Canning kettle

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.
