Re: ceramic cooktop repair?
Sorry, but no there is nothing available to repair the top. nothing will stay. the material is fired on in the manufacturing process. the only option, (if you can;t live with the blemish is to replace the top.

From what you have described one part of the ceramic hub is not lighting up on your Electrolux cooktop. It sounds like you could be experiencing a faulty burner or sensor. The best way to achieve a resolution on your cooktop is to consult with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed and repaired if necessary. Hopefully this is helpful. -OOS
Yes. Disconnect power to range. Open oven door and remove hex head screws at front edge of cooktop from the bottom side. Lift up front of cooktop. Burner units can then be removed from the underside of the cooktop. Be careful not to damage the gray insulating material around the burner elements if you remove the elements from the cooktop glass.
Ceramic cooktop cleaning tips - especially for 2-in difficult-to-remove stain: Best Idea: "Cerama Bryte" + plastic scrubbie Cerama Bryte is specifically designed for this cooktop, works on stains, avail at Hardware Stores.
Other ceramic cooktop tips: 1. "Soft Scrub" plasic scrubbie 2. Comet cleanser + sponge 3. Single-edge razor blade held at 45-degree angle - scrapes off material 4. "Cook Top" cleaner (WalMart) + Mr. Clean "Magic Eraser" abrasive pad 5. baking soda on damp sponge 6. soak stain for awhile with Formula 409, Fantastic, or citrus degreaser ("Orange Clean") 7. ammonia + water - in a 1:1 solution 8. Easy Off oven cleaner - it foams on the stain and does the work for you - let it sit 20 min. 9. the nuclear option: Cerama Bryte under a plastic scrubbie under an orbital sander with sandpaper removed (just the pad down on top of the scrubbie), after pre-soaking in Citrus Degreaser. The sander is a power tool which only saves your joints, and speeds up the chore.
Hi- High temps make for tricky maintenance of glass or ceramic tops. The heat element must pass its heat energy through the glass or ceramic and into the pan. Water droplets will steam away, while a spatter of oil or even a few grains of sugar will melt and burn to a tough film of carbon on the surface. The obvious preventitive measures of checking pan bottoms thoroughly before contact with clean (yes- very clean) cooktop surface mean most spots may be small, they can be annoying to look at and tough to remove. My best cleaning results for these spots came from using a VERY small amount of OVEN cleaner (use gloves) on a paper towel placed on spot for a few minutes. A clean, new razor blade may be used to scrape off film. Hope this helps. - Thanks- ED
The top is ceramic coated steel. There is not much that will stick to it and last due to the heat. My personal opinion is anything you try to do to the top will soon look worse than the brown..... Eric
The filter in the jenn air can be run through the dishwasher. clean the outside of the oven as best as you can before you start the self clean cycle. NEVER!!! use oven cleaner inside a self cleaning oven. or on the gasket. . You can use a degreaser or oven cleaner on the cooktop on any stainless steel, procelain or chrome surface. Don't get oven cleaner on painted or aluminum surfaces. Rinse off very well.
