Fix scratches on stainless steel appliance


The professionals in order to remove the scratches from st. steel they use special metal wire meshes like soft scotch bride attached on special rotary milling machine. They brush it in the direction of the grooves on the st. steel surface. They start with a hard brush and they reduce the strength until they finalise it as the original finish. If it a brush surface this is more easy than a polished mirror surface. These procedure need experience and care so you will not end up with more damage than the original one.

HOW TO UNLOCK JEN-AIR STOVE TOP MODEL# JED4536WR01


The All Off cooktop touch control turns off the downdraft exhaust

system and all surface cooking areas that are in use at the same

time.



The Lock cooktop control avoids unintended use of the surface

cooking areas. When the cooktop is locked out, the surface

cooking areas cannot be turned on by the cooktop touch

controls.



To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad

for 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, ALL OFF/LOCK will glow red,

indicating that the cooktop controls are in the lockout position.

To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad
for 4 seconds.

How do i clean my cooktop on a whirlpool 465


Light Cleaning
  • Clean your CERAN cooktop after every use. To remove simple spills, wait for the surface to cool before beginning the cleaning process. Pour a small amount of cleaning cream on a damp paper towel and wipe the cooktop surface until the soil and cream are no longer visible. The cleaning cream will leave a protective finish, which will preclude scratches and other types of damage.
  • Heavy Cleaning
  • Wear a heavy oven mitt to remove burnt foods or liquids while the cooktop is still warm. Use the metal razor scraper to remove the substances that are stuck to the cooktop surface. Once the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel to spread a small amount of cleaning cream over the entire cooktop surface and wipe it thoroughly until the cream is no longer visible. Rinse the cooktop with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
  • Cleaning Melted Substances
  • Remove melted plastic, foil or other kitchen products immediately using the metal razor scraper. Spills containing sugar, such as ketchup, tomato sauce, syrup or pudding, must also be removed with the metal scraper at once. It is best to remove these substances while the burner is still hot. Once the melted substance has been removed and the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel and cleaning cream to complete the cleaning process. To protect your hands, remember to wear a thick oven mitt when cleaning the hot cooktop.
  • Tips
  • Scratch marks resulting from daily use will not interfere with the performance of your cooktop. Pots and pans with flat bottoms and those that cover the entire burner surface are recommended for use on your CERAN cooktop.
  • Warnings
  • Spills containing sugar may permanently damage your cooktop unless the substance is removed immediately. Use only the recommended cleaning products on your CERAN cooktop to protect it from damage. Do not use scouring pads, plastic coated sponges or abrasive products of any type. Do not use oven spray or any other type of cleaner containing ammonia or chlorine. Clean all spills thoroughly before using your cooktop again.

    The black coating on the glass top of my Amanda range is is flaking off and turning clear around the burgers what's that all about. This problem started the first day I turned the elements on. The stove is...


    The finish on these cooktops WILL eventually change colors and fade over years of use. However, the finish should not be peeling off, flaking, or changing colors now. That is not normal. If the stove is only two months old, the manufacturers warranty should cover the cost to replace the entire cooktop at no cost to you. Please note, however, that is as long as you haven't done anything to cause the damage such as using the wrong cookware. Your owner's manual will explain what cookware can/cannot be used on these cooktops and what type of cleaners are recommended for keeping them looking good.

    For example: You cannot use cast iron due to the weight and the heat retention. It may crack the cooktop. You also need to use pans that have a flat bottom. Any pans that are warped or have surfaces that do not cover the cooking surface evenly can cause uneven heating and also cause damage to the cook top.

    As long as you have followed the use and care manual and have not done anything to cause the premature wear, I would contact the manufacturer and request a warranty service call.

    If you have any questions, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Water boiled over into control knobs for the cook top elements.


    Just fixed this problem and repaired the corner of the Ceran cooktop.

    Disclaimer: These cooktops run on 220V and will kill you if you don't know how to work with electricity. If you're unsure, get some help.

    The boiling water slopped out of your pot, and went over to your controls (knobs) and went down the shaft and into a component call "Infinity Switch". The water caused the switch internally to weld one of the two internal sets of contact points into a permanent position. The fix is to replace the
    "Infinity Switch" that the boiling water spilled into. The Infinity switch is the component that the control knob slides on to.

    In my cooktop one of the infinity switches failed and appears to damage the adjacent switch. Mine actually caught on fire and damaged the wiring and the connector. Hopefully you are better off. Since they were in such close proximity I replaced them both. For $20 you might consider the same. I replaced both to be safe and they were $21.47 each.

    My cooktop has 4 elements 2 small, 1 large and 1 combined (small and large) surface. A large element was definitely damaged and possibly a small element. I ordered both. I mention this in case a multi-element was damaged on your cooktop.

    You will need to contact either Jenn-Air or someone. Since you can't see an exploded parts list online, you'll have to use the schematic. It is in a plastic sleeve and it stuck to the side of the ventilator housing underneath the cooktop.

    When you wire the new part in, make sure you have the wiring correct or when you turn it back on you will burn up the new part.

    I hope this helps.

    I'm sorry to say that there is not a wonder solution for this. You try laying a damp cloth on the aluminum part to try and allow the moisture to soak in the clean it off.
    Don't use anything abrasive as the aluminum will scratch.

    Can cast iron be used on GE glass top stoves?


    Cast iron is not recommended due to the weight and its heat retention. Cast iron stays hot longer and, due to the weight, can damage the cooktop surface by scratching or cracking it. In your owner/operator manual there should be a section that defines what type of cookware that can be used. Aluminum and Copper heat rapidly, but can leave metal transfer marks. Stainless takes longer to heat and doesn't always heat evenly. Baked enamel, I believe, is the recommended cookware, because it is light weight, heats evenly and has a less risk of damaging the cooktop.

    NOTE: References to any remarks about metal transfer marks made by cookware are DISCLAIMERS letting the consumer know that the POTENTIAL of marking the cooktop surface exists. This is NOT to imply that the cookware should not be used. There should be clear instructions that state how to remove the marks (if it occurs), what recommended cleaners are to be used and how to properly keep the cooktop surface clean. Spillage from milk or sugar substances can cause more damage than metal transfer marks.

    Another item to note is the cookware bottom should be smooth and flat. If you sit a pan on the range surface and it does not sit evenly, you can potentially crack the cooktop surface due to uneven heating.

    A warranty in most cases does not cover damage or breakage of the cooktop caused by the consumer using improper cookware or dropping something on it and breaking the surface.

    Not trying to give you a lecture here, just trying to give you some advice just in case you weren't aware. I hope you find this information helpful.
