They sell cleaners for glasstop stoves. Often I find I can use baking soda and lemon juice mixed together to form a stiff paste and use a non abrasive pad (like what you use on non stick pans) and lots of elbow grease... but not TOO much pressure... If that does'nt do it, try the cleaner they make for it. I have had my stove for quite a while now- overall it's stayed fairly clean with the home remedy
What I would try. Assuming the "burners" means the cast iron assemblies on top of the stainless steel, remove them to an area outside. Perhaps on a piece of plywood, and clean them with oven cleaner. Grease may drip off them, so a deck or driveway are unacceptable. Wear gloves and watch splatters. Wash thoroughly with fresh water before reusing. Beware. Caustic chemicals can discolor stainless
Wipe up spills as soon as they happen with a clean dry towel. According to the Jenn-Air website, for glass top cooking surfaces, you should do this even if it is hot since it will be harder to clean up later. Be careful not to get burned.
Use a cooktop cleaner once it is cool. You can also use dishwashing detergent and water or just a baking soda paste (made with water).
Apply the cleaner to a sponge, cloth or paper towel. For more stubborn stains, you can use a non-abrasive or "scratchless" pad.
Rub the soiled areas until clean. Rinse well, especially if you used the baking soda paste as that can leave a residue.
Use a razor blade for burned on and crusty stains that will not come off using the previous methods. Jenn-Air states to hold it at a 30-degree angle to carefully remove the stain.
Hey y'all. I have the same lame GE profile gas cooktop with the gray grates and burner covers. I know this is the expensive way to go, but I use Easy-Off "self-cleaning oven" oven cleaning spray. For about $5, you get 3 cleanings. It is a pain to do, but I have better things to do than scrub these grates all the time. I don't know why, but the baked on crud just drives me crazy. I tried everything to clean them completely. I even tried to scrub the darn things with a kitchen pumice stone(sold at walmart)but it is impossible to get the curvy areas clean. Now the paint has started to wear off on the burner covers.
I do not use the oven cleaner on the cooktop itself. I use soft-scrub with baking soda, then cover the cooktop with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cut out holes for the burners. This keeps most of the spills contained, and helps with cleanup.
I visited to the GE parts web page, and they only sell gray grates and covers. I am going to buy black BBQ grill paint(spray can)from Home Depot and try it on the burner covers first. They are the least expensive to replace if it fails, and if it works, I will paint the grates with this high temperature paint. I will keep you posted on the results.
The burner are fixed only maintenace are to clean burner /clean holes and edge in order flow of gas good performance.At the back if you want make more good performance of your top burner clean the nozzle where the air and gas mix . Clean the nozzle w/fine niddle /sometime if will corrode with rust and dust to struck flow of gas.
Well, it happened again. I'd replaced the spark module last time around, due to spillage getting into/onto that control unit. This time around, I had one burner that just kept sparking after it was lit. Cleaning the sparking post (emitter) didn't solve the problem, but I realized that there might be contamination elsewhere in the connect. I pulled the brass rings (nuts, really) and was able to lift the the top off. I carefully removed the individual sparking wires from each burner, and examined each assembly. After cleaning some debris off the male connector for that bad burner's spark assy, and reassembling the cooktop, it worked!
Things learned: The top can lift off without having to worry about dropping the entire unit. (This probably varies by model). The emitters _and_their_connectors_ are sensitive to contaminants. This was an EASY fix! Thanks for the helpful instructions everyone!
