Re: Plastic melted on my glass cooktop
Didi you try heating the burner slightly to soften the plastic a bit before trying to scrape off, cant see any reason why that wouldnt work, using a razor blade held flat will scrape just about anything off of the glass tops!

This is caused by a faulty sensor that is located between the burner element and the top. To replace the faulty part you will need to uninstall the cooktop and remove the glass top. The sensor is a rod a little smaller than a pencil that you will see right on top of that burner.
If you choose not to replace the sensor it will not cause any issues other than you will have to live with that light constantly on and you will know when the top is hot for that element.

Hello. I don't know if this will work but you could try getting it as cold as you can and maybe it will come off that way. If it were me I would use my refrigerant, but I am sure you don't have that. Who knows maybe ice will work. Now that I think about it, maybe you can carefully use some sand paper being sure you don't scratch the surface.
While the cook top is cool, use a razor blade scraper to remove most of the melted plastic. Turn on the cook top to warm the remaining plastic slightly, turn off the cooktop, and then wipe off the excess.
Remove the brass ring nuts and the screw from each of the burners and pull off the knobs, then lift up the glass cooktop; no need to remove the three screws around the perimeter or even take out the box.
