Replacing Glass Cooktop on GE JPB82

Hi I have a crack in the glass cooktop of my GE JBP82 range. From looking online and reading, it seemed that all I needed was the cooktop piece and I could unscrew the elements and replace the top which would be cheaper than an entire replacement range.

I got the replacement top in today but it seems the metal frame that holds the elements on the (old) cooktop is bonded to the cooktop. Can anyone confirm if this is correct- is there an adhesive used on these frames? I believe I have removed all of the screws/brackets. And if it is bonded is there a way to remove it or am I going ot have to buy replacements elements/frame as well?

Thanks!

    Thanks for the fast response!

    Hmmm... let me see if I understand and maybe clarify a bit. I did pull out the cooktop by removing the two screws underneath the top above the oven door and then swinging it up off its hinges at the back of the unit.

    Then, I removed the two brackets (I believe those are the 1/4 inch screws you are talking about) that hold the frame that the elements are in, but the frame is adhered to the top. The replacement top doesn't have the frame that the elements individually latch into and I was hoping that frame just came off all as one.

    So while I could remove all the elements from the frame, I have no way to connect them to the new top.

    Does that make sense?

    Argh. Looks like I have the wrong part number- similar model but not exact. And of course the one I really need is $100 more!

Thank you for your post, isaak goldman!

I understand that you are seeking instructions in order to replace the cooktop on your Frigidaire range. However, this is not a simple DIY job. I would recommend having a professional technician come out to ensure that the range is properly disassembled and the cooktop installed correctly to prevent any future issues. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop

First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.

Kitchenaid 36" glass cooktop with small crack


A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

I have GE Profile glass cooktop. After cleaning


you can safely use a razor scraper such as you would use to scrape paint. It will not harm the surface and then you can polish it with the cleaner.

Cooktop glass broken - need a replacement - where can I find it?


It all depends on our capabilities... The top isn't all that difficult to replace. If it were me, I would call GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or schedule an appointment online at www.geappliances.com as there may still be a warranty on the top which is expensive...

Deep scractches on glass stove top


hi there,

you can try and use a cleaner intended for glass cooktops. if the scratches are deeper than that, i would recommend replacing the cooktop itself, as the heat from the elements may cause it to crack.

thanks

Glass top


The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.
