Hello- I would stop using that burner immediately, it is possible that there is an electrical short either in the burner or the burner switch. This could potentially cause fire or a shock. You will need to have a Tech out to diagnose the problem. Good luck, best regards.

    My husbands pretty handy. Do you think he could fix it with a new part,,,but which part could it be?

  • dustymirror Sep 29, 2010

    Hello- He could try to fix it. Make SURE that the breaker is off to the unit before attempting any repair. Glass top units are usually difficult to work on because the glass has to be removed and even though the glass is tempered it can still shatter. It is really difficult to say exactly which part it would be. I would look closely at ALL the wiring involving that burner, the burner itself and the switch that controls it. If you could reply with the exact Model number I may be able to locate a parts breakdown to send you a link to. Best regards.

I have a glass 4 gas burner stove top and cracked the glass, can I replace it? Its a GE Profile with a stainless steel front lip


Yes the glass is replaceable, you will have to order a new one, and you could do so through an appliance parts store. They can even put it in for you.

Broke glass on electric genn-air


Please do not use the stove if the element is viable because of broken glass, this could become a danger to yourself.

Look at the cost of a new stove, you should be able to get one for
around 400.00. One of my customers had a glass top with 4 burners,
they had the same thing happen, the cost to replace the top was
1,200.00. So I would assume that you can get a new stove with 4
burners less then it would cost to replace the part on a stove you don't like. Maybe there is a LOWES around you to look at stoves,
they seem to be everywhere,like death and taxes.

As for putting a 4 burner top on a stove that has 2 with grill, I don't think it can be done without the extra cost of adding the parts to run the other 2 burners, so like I said in the long run,it just might be cheaper to but a new stove. It should not be a big deal to remove the exhaust from the grill part of the stove.

I looked at the model# you put down,and it does not have a grill,
from what I see, there are 4 burners and a downdraft vent in between the 4 burners, there are 6 models with this part # and none have a grill,only the downdraft vent.

If the model# is right, the cost would be around 300.00 for the glass, and then the cost of having it replaced. So I would say over
400.00, In which case for the same amount you could have a new one, but you must weigh the difference for yourself and see what you think is the best way to go.
If you have any more questions,please post back and everyone is more than willing to help you. I hope I have helped a little.

My electric stove top burner only works on high


This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Replacement of glass top


Unplug first! Find the screws that hold the cooktop to the range. Usually in the front just above the oven door when it is closed on the underside. This should release the cooktop. The burners and wiring may have to be removed. You can order the part at sears.com.
