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!

I understand all the troubleshooting / repairs for this cooktop (Maytag / Whirlpool CSG7000), but I need to know...How do I separate the glass top from the steel pan without breaking it? Can't get at the...


You will have to use a putty knife to separate the top from the burner box.
After you do your repair you will also need 107 inches of burner box tape to re-seal the top.

Burner light stays on


Hi,

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.

Stovetop stays hot when burners are not on


Is it a glass top. If it is, glass will absorb the heat. It will cool off after some time. That is normal.

Melted plastic (teapot whistle) on glass cooktop


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.

Melted plastic help!!!!!!!


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.
