Question about Kitchen Ranges
I know i need a 30 inch stove opening for cabinets but should the countertop be longer for glass of stove to overlap ?
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.

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

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
