SOURCE: Replacement of glass top

Just a note when you're doing this... when you open up the top, put a towel across each side so that when you drop a clip, it doesn't go down the side between the oven and the outside wall. If it does, hope that it goes all the way to the bottom where you can get at it by removing the bottom drawer. If you put the towel all the way across the oven box before you start taking things apart, you also won't have to worry about where little tiny screws go when you drop them... and, you will drop them! ;-)

Also, the old tops had a reinforcement bar that the ground was attached to. The new ones don't. There's a tiny hole on the flange of one of the right hand burner holes... that's where the ground is supposed to go on the new top. You WILL need a smaller self tapping screw than the original one.

And, forget having a helper... get something to prop the lid open with that won't fall if you raise the lid a little while you're working on it. Helper will just get in the way and can't hold it still enough while you''re trying to man handle those tiny little clips and screws that hold the burners in place.

The top can be replaced but it is expensive. Your range is less than a year old call a local servicer to see if there may be warranty available to cover this problem it may not cost you anything. Good luck.

If you ran a self cleaning cycle and now the door won't open you may just need to wait a while. The door locks to avoid anyone from opening it as the over heats up to around 700 or more degrees to burn anything off. Sometimes what will happen however is that the heat will get to intense and cause the door lock mechanism to jamb. If the door doesn't open for you after a good few hours or so you can try unplugging the oven for a while to try and reset it. If not though you will have to go through the front panel and go down to manually unlock the door. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Keep me updated on the outcome too if you wouldn't mind. Good luck and glad I could help.

Spot on Jenn Air smooth cook top stove with down draft.


Use Cooktop Cleaner with a soft micro cloth. Don't use water. Buff until the mark disappears. Hint: Never clean the cooktop until it is completely cool to touch as doing so makes cleaning much harder. Never use abrasives on the glass or abrasive cast iron skillets.

How to remove burnt grease, fix lightly scratched black stovetop?


Hi, I assume we are talking about a flat glass top. First the bad news. using any abrasives will permanently scratch the glass hence the dull spot. You can however make it look a little better. Grease spots and the like can be removed with a flat razor blade scraper which needs to be held flat to avoid the corners making scratches. Use any good glass/ceramic cooktop cleaner ( which is the ONLY cleaner you should ever use ) (available in your local grocery diy store and some hardware stores). The cleaner is a thick liquid, put about a dime size drop on each burner area and use a paper towel to buff out the finish like waxing a car. Once it looks clean flip your paper towel over and shine the top to like new. Good Luck!

Burner on glass stove top has turned black


The nice grey-flecked surface coating is very thin; the solid black is underneath. You've "cleaned" the coating off -- that's why further scrubbing just makes it worse. We did the same thing :-(

I just replaced the top it is very easy if you know which screws to take out unplug the stove
LOTs of hidden screws so remember I only had 4 left overs.

First take the knobs off and the 4 black knobs below the real knob

Unscrew the black thing right under the knob this holds down the STEALESS steel cover for all your screws.

then start taking screws out of the fron the top sides and the screws along the oven door.

The screws near the top releases the glass and frame.
MARK COLOR CODE WITH MARKERS OR TAPE BUT DO IT BECAUSE you wont remember like me.

Wires unplug all of the connections that you see, P11 and P13 is where I had my problem they came off. the board eek

Be careful over lable I just exploded my stove when i put it all back together one wire came off I did not lable it.

239.00 for the board 289 for the glass
IF ANY WIRE COME OFF read the ciruit board Schematic

In still workng on my stove I cant believe it blew up the board.

Whirlpool Oven, Ceran stove top


I want to say that since I posted my original problem with black spots appearing on the Schott Ceran top, I took pictures of the top and attached them to a complaint sent to Maytag. Approximately 3 days later, a Maytag representative phoned and offered a brand new top-basically stating that there is a fault with the tops. They would not pay for the labor to replace the top. My husband downloaded the instructions from Maytag website and installed it himself. These spots actually appear from within the surface and are not the result of a boil over, etc. The spots on my burner grew to the width of the burner. If you search the internet, you will see many others with the same problem with the Schott Ceran tops. I will never buy another!
