Question about Cooktops

Open Question

I have a cooktop worktop model akm613/nb and it has rusted - why? It is a glass top and all around the sides there is a lot of rust. I bought this as I live in Scottburgh and my sister had the exact one, but her top had a rubber seal around the top as it fits into the work surface. Mine never came with one and now it looks very ugly. Have had other Whirlpool applicances and never had a days problem.

SOURCE: GE Cooktop JP930 surface element not working

It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.

SOURCE: 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.

Yuo can try with sand paper grid #600, but you have to use it wet, Just pour some water on the top and get the sand paper wet and concentrate on the stains only, and they should come out without scratching the glass.

SOURCE: Gas leak within cooktop

What do you mean it has a leak inside? You can remove the glass top by carefully lifting it up and out of the countertop and the removing either the phillips, 1/4" or Torx screws around the lip under the glass. Pull off the knobs and the glass will s-l-o-w-l-y come up with even steady lifting force. Where gloves in case it breaks but it shouldn't as long as you don't drop in on a corner

SOURCE: Cleaning glass cooktop

Hi, Any good glass/ceramic cooktop cleaner will do the job. Any grease spots or burned food spots can be scraped off with a razor scraper ( just keep it flat ) Use a couple of paper towels and put a dime sized drop of the cleaner on each burner and with a circular motion buff the top like you would wax a car, when cleaned up, flip the towels over and buff to a shine. I don't endorse any products but there are some that contain everything you need, cleaner , scraper, cloth like Ceramabrite. They can be found at most grocery, diy and some hardware stores. Good Luck!

How to remove glass top from GE Gas Cooktop


You are correct. You have to remove the screws. If you break them off then you will most likely have to replace the burner inlets and get new screws. I would not worry about getting underneath quite yet. You mentioned that you hear clicking which means that at least one of your burners has a working igniter. Do you have gas at the burners, and do any of them light normally?

On the instalation of a de dietrich dti714v does it simply sit in the worktop hole? only supported by the glass lip?


there is a foam seal to fit between the glass and worktop and there should be some brackets that go underneath to hold it firm.
basically the glass does sit very close to the worktop.

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop

First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.

To help prevent problem of cooktop cracking. Sears model 790


It should have come with a universal strip, if not, you can buy a compressable strip for 'doors', not the sponge type, and then for added peace of mind,cut off any exess of the compressionable seal, sealthe joint between the cooker edge and the worktop with translusant (clear) silicone. Unless you are proficent in this procedure, obtain proffesional help. Regards, Dave.

Jenn air cook top


Yes you can. Call Jenn Air ((877) 232-6771) and give them your model number (serial is helpful too). They sent my replacement glass within a week. I have a model JED8430ABD from 2000 and they had the top. Fit perfectly and took about an hour to replace.

To change it out, after unplugging the cooktop, I removed the metal tape connecting the external vent shaft to the blower. Then I just lifted the entire cooktop out up out of the countertop so I could access the screws on the sides of the cooktop (looking at the edges of the new cooktop glass helped me figure out which screws to remove around the edge). Then I removed the 2 screws in the vent area on top (1 black screw on each side). And that released the cooktop glass from the metal box that holds the burners. I then took the rubber rings out of the knob holes so I could put them in the new cooktop (I almost missed that...). Finally, I put the new cooktop glass on, put the screws back in, lowered the cooktop back into the counter, and retaped the blower to the vent shaft. Voila!

I really wouldn't be afraid of doing this yourself if you are handy at all. And it will save you a ton. Good luck.

PS The screws around the perimeter are hexigon shapped, so you can't just use a screwdriver. I found my Black & Decker electric screwdriver had that same shaped hole that it held the bit, so I just pulled out the bit and used the screwdriver that way. Worked like a charm.

Flame too low


Most probably dirty jets. If water was spuilled, there is a possibility of rust forming on some parts. Low flames are usually due to inadequate gas supply, due to dirty jets and burners. Often rust forms on the top burners in the little holes, causing slight blockage - clean the holes with a needle properly and check. Oshie
