Re: Removal of Carbon from my Cerean Top Burner
If the substance is sugar and it hasn't etched your cooktop, then the easiest way I have found is to use a NEW sigle edge razor blade and carefully scrape it off with that. Your local parts distributor probably carries a similar scraping device. I usually use a scraper that I use to scrape paint off of windows it uses single edge razor blades. there are cleaners that you can buy but if it is baked on till it is hard like carbon,scrape it first. check you owners manual etc. Normally sugar and tomato sauce and the like can permanatly etch the glass. Best bet is to always keep it cleaned off to keep it looking good for years.

Sell it! We had one and it was a constant nightmare, seemed to have a life of its own, one minute functioning, next not. We actually gave it away to friends and bought an old-style hob instead! 4 months later THEY got rid of it too!!!!!!!
No you should not use a glass kettle or glass type pots on a ceran top stove. Always use metal flat bottom kettle and pots. When buying a metal kettle make sure that there is no gap between the bottom of the kettle and the surface of the ceran top. Some metal kettles have an indentation on the bottom. This does not work well on the ceran top.
Hope this helps.
What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.
As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.
Here's the recommended cookware for glass top ranges:
Aluminum and Copper - have good heating characteristics, but may leave metal transfer marks on the glass.
Stainless - may take longer to heat and may not heat as evenly (some stainless has a copper liner to aid in heat transfer). More resistant to leaving metal transfer marks.
Baked Enamel - great heating characteristics, provides uniform heating and resists marks on glass surface.
Cast Iron - NOT recommended due to the weight of the metal. Can cause potential cracks or breakage.
Now, any reference to metal transfer marks are merely disclaimers from most manufacturers that the potential exists that the cookware could leave marks on the stove surface. Using a good cook-top cleaning product after the surface cools will aid in removing any of these marks. This does not mean this cookware should not be used.
All cookware used on glass cook-tops should have flat bottoms. There should be no ridges, grooves, or warping. This creates an uneven heat transfer between the pan and surface and can potentially cause the glass to break. Most manufacturers will not honor a warranty where it can be determined that the consumer used the wrong cookware.
Make sure you wipe up any spills on the stove surface that contains sugars or milk. These ingredients (if allowed to burn on the surface and are not cleaned up) will eventually cause damage to the glass surface by either removing the finish or leaving pits and cracks. Wipe up all spills AFTER the surface has been allowed to cool using a non-abrasive cleaning rag or sponge. The green scrubbing pads are considered non-abrasive and CAN be used. DO NOT use steel wool or SOS pads! A small straight blade razor can be used to remove stubborn items by gently scraping in one direction. I don't believe you can use any cleaning product that contains ammonia either.
All of this information can be found in the owners manual that came with the appliance. If you don't have a user/owner's manual, post back with your model number and I'll see if I can locate it for you. I hope this helps you.
try clr from a local supermarket.it comes in a green plastic bottle.wipe the burner generously but not soaking wet with it and turn the burner on the lowest setting.then use a metal scouring pad and LIGHTLY scour the burner.
This just started to happen to ours too. It's because you can't get let water get into the valve/switch assembly. Ours got so much water in there that it was making huge sparks and flames which charred up the switches. You may have to replace the whole 5-burner igniter switch assembly. I think it's part number 74010753. To access, remove 2 screws under the front of stovetop. open Top oven door to access. remove the 2 screws that hold the gas valve assembly. Remove 2 screws out of each burner assembly. Remove the green grounding wire on the right hand corner of stove top. The stove top will come off revealing the 5 white igniter switch assembly which is all wired together in parallel. Remove the large metal panel on the rear. There are two wires that are off the 5-burner switch assembly that you unplug. Replace this whole assembly and the problem should be fixed. Hope this helps
