Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

Glass top I absolutely cannot clean the white top. I work on it every morning and have to resort to Brillo pads. I've cleaned and recleaned the bottoms of my pans....all to no avail. Right now, I've got Clorox on the stovetop but I think due to my trying to clean that I've damaged it. I don't know.....What should I do? Buy a new stove?

You have more than likey damaged the stove top with brillo, and once they are damaged there is really no simple cure other than to replace. in the future use a non abrasive cleaner, and NEVER use oven cleaner on a glass top, it will wreck it as well

White scratches on top of amana cooktop


So, your pot scatched the surface of your glas top?
Stop using those pots.
You can repair scatched glass with a very fine "sanding paper", similar to those used to repair the crystal of a watch or reading glass but you should get help form someone who really knows what he is doing

One of my pilot lights is out on my stove range, is it safe to relight it myself?


Yes. Lift up the whole top of range from front. It pops up an inch from top and tilts back. Remove grates first. Clean off unlit orfice with brillo pad and poke the hole with a pin. light it. Gently put top down or it will blow out the pilots.

How/what can be used to clean range ''glass top'' can those green spunges be used/


Oven cleaner, use EASY-OFF Fume Free Oven Cleaner, it is the best
for cooked stains.

You should not use anything but a soft cloth, and if you use the cleaner
you won't need something abrasive.

Once you put tiny scratches into the glass, it will be more difficult to clean.

After you clean it with oven cleaner, rinse it with a warm wash cloth a few times, to make sure no cleaner is left behind, and read the directions.

The renters used brillo to clean the stove top and now it's scrated. Can it be repaired?


A scratched enameled stove top can be polished if the scratches arent too severe.

You can try a rubbing compound to smooth out the scratches and then polish to bring back the shine.

I have a glass top gemini maytag, the top is white I have tried many cleaning products but cannot get it clean.


I used Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaner that I bought at Bed Bath & Beyond. It comes with a scraper and a special scratch pad. I applied it has directed and let it dry on the cooled cooktop and all the burn marks and baked on stuff wiped right off the cooktop. I make sure I use it about once a week and the cooktop stays looking good.

WHITE FILM INSIDE OVEN


your mom may have used a non-self cleaning cleaner to try and clean this oven in the past. you wont have much luck getting rid of the stain but using cleaners like easy-off or mr muscle may help you reduce the staining.
it could also be that an element has shorted out and "burned" the surface of the oven. if the oven doesnt heat properly then check the elements for a rough or burnt out area. that does happen but its probably just going to be stained as it sounds like you have tried to do the cleaning.
p.s. i like mr muscle better then easy-off.

Glass top range cookware


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.

Cleaning Tempered Glass


Norwex Descaler is the absolute best thing I've found for hard water build up on any surface, including glass shower doors and shower/sink fixtures. When I moved into my current house last year, the bathtub and shower head were disgusting! They were white with years of built-up hard water residue. Repeated application of CLR and a ton of elbow grease just couldn't get it off. When I tried Norwex DeScaler for the first time, it removed ALL of the soap scum and lime in the FIRST application.

This stuff is enzyme based - free of hazardous chemicals and enviro friendly. The enzymes in the DeScaler actually eat the soap scum! I just spray it on, wait 5 -10 minutes, and wipe off with my wet microfiber cloth (also from Norwex). It's incredible. It works better and faster than CLR, or any other chemical alternative I've tried. It's fume-free and can be used by people with chemical and environmental allergies.

You can buy it from a Norwex Rep, or order it online - a good site is www.Norwex-Healthy-Cleaning.com. Hope this helps.
