SOURCE: glass top range cookware

Here's the recommended cookware for glass top ranges:

Aluminum and Copper - have good heating characteristics, but may leave metal transfer marks on the glass.

Stainless - may take longer to heat and may not heat as evenly (some stainless has a copper liner to aid in heat transfer). More resistant to leaving metal transfer marks.

Baked Enamel - great heating characteristics, provides uniform heating and resists marks on glass surface.

Cast Iron - NOT recommended due to the weight of the metal. Can cause potential cracks or breakage.

Now, any reference to metal transfer marks are merely disclaimers from most manufacturers that the potential exists that the cookware could leave marks on the stove surface. Using a good cook-top cleaning product after the surface cools will aid in removing any of these marks. This does not mean this cookware should not be used.

All cookware used on glass cook-tops should have flat bottoms. There should be no ridges, grooves, or warping. This creates an uneven heat transfer between the pan and surface and can potentially cause the glass to break. Most manufacturers will not honor a warranty where it can be determined that the consumer used the wrong cookware.

Make sure you wipe up any spills on the stove surface that contains sugars or milk. These ingredients (if allowed to burn on the surface and are not cleaned up) will eventually cause damage to the glass surface by either removing the finish or leaving pits and cracks. Wipe up all spills AFTER the surface has been allowed to cool using a non-abrasive cleaning rag or sponge. The green scrubbing pads are considered non-abrasive and CAN be used. DO NOT use steel wool or SOS pads! A small straight blade razor can be used to remove stubborn items by gently scraping in one direction. I don't believe you can use any cleaning product that contains ammonia either.

All of this information can be found in the owners manual that came with the appliance. If you don't have a user/owner's manual, post back with your model number and I'll see if I can locate it for you. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: premier 30 inch gas stove oven does not light

do you hear any clicking when you try to start the oven portion of the range? if not lets try this, open the lower drawer so you can see the burner bar and mechanism for lighting the bake bar. as your watching the mechanism turn on the oven (nothing should happen as per your issue) while oven is on try lighting one of the top burners, any one will do wanna check if that lites the spark and in turn lites the oven pilot.if that does infact work you have a bad spark switch for the oven control

SOURCE: Electrolux Slide In Electric Range doesn't fit to the wall?

We have the same Electolux range.....it is supposed to fit about 2 inched from back wall......your granite installer will have to fit a piece of granite behind the range. Yes, it is proper to have the plug installed. The plug is not part of the range package and will have to be purchased seperately if your installer does not use the plug from your old unit.

We are on our second slide in with wave touch controls.......we hope you have better luck that we've had. Ceramic cooktops do not seem to be level on all units. The bottom oven has locked up on both ovens and cause burned foods.....Electrolux has problems that aren't acknowledging as yet..........good luck

SOURCE: kenmore glass top range left front large burner out

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

Hello Mkoffice, this a very common problem when floors are installed in front of cabinets and not underthe cabinets. it also causes a problem for the dishwasher. it will become trapped or cant be installed.If you dont want to removed cabinets to install the tile. you will need to raise the cabinet height. my shop has run into this before. We add 1 inch tall strips of wood across the entire front edge of the cabinets. the same is done to the back wall and any area where two cabinets sides meet. we dont use full sheet of ply wood because the granite installers will need access into the top of the cabinets to level the counters. The wood type should match the cabinet.( at least in the front) it will have to be stained or painted.
Hope this helps

GE Profile slide in is 28" counters are 30" what


so the whole is 28" and the range is 30" this sounds like a carpentry task or exchanging for a differnt stove really nothing you can do to the stove I being a carpenter as well as an appliance repairman have cut the counters shorter in order to fit a stove if your not used to doing finish carpentry hire a carpenter it will be well worth the money and shouldn't cost that much to shave off two inches. please message me back if you have any furhter questions and please remember to rank this opinion Thanks again

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove


  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

GE profile top


Yes, the glass cook top can be replaced. These counter top inserts are actually fairly simple to repair, but the entire assembly usually has to be uninstalled to accomodate removing the glass top and installing a new one. You will need to provide a model number by opening the cabinet underneath the cook top and looking for a nameplate in order for me to assist you further in determing a part number, cost and how to disassemble.

Is there suppose to be a gap of 1/8" - 1/4" between the lip of the range and a granite countertop?


Ranges have a built in safety factor when the cooktops were designed so that the perimeter of the stove stays warm at best when using. The granite is very thermally stable and will not have an issue here. But the oven area needs a little air space from your cabinet/wood surface.
