I have a eurolec gas stove which has a glass top that closes down onto the hob. The glass has a plastic coating which has bubbled. Is it alright to remove the plastic. I presume that the plastic was to be removed on installation

    i had a guest stay who thought that you left the glass top down, hence the huge melted plastic mess when the top is down now. Will i need a entire new lid or can the plastic be re done ??

    The plastic coating can be peeled off - slowly and with care then carefully scrape away the burnt residue with a sharp blade knife and remove the adhesive residue with turps - mine looks new again dont think the plastic coating is essential.

    I had the same problem and found the advice worked perfectly - thank goodness!

    Hi - I took my plastic coating off a few months ago - it was also blistered. This morning I was at the washing line and heard this smash inside the house - rushed in and the glass top seemed to have exploded into a million pieces. I guess lucky I wasn't in the house and the kids at school. I just now came to find a solution on replacing it when I saw these older posts about removing the plastic coating so I guess the plastic coating would perhaps prevent the glass from shattering as mine did. (I would suggest those people who have removed it do as suggested in another post and replace the tinting!) I have an open plan kitchen and there is glass bits as far as 5 metres away!! I bought the house with this stove in it and I have been here for 7 years so perhaps the glass top became brittle over the years - now I am wondering can I replace the glass top and if so, where?

    # VickiVictor ... Our glass top also exploded. Our stove was built in 1994. I have rung around and found a shop that can replace the glass. The cost is $260.oo. I think that we will leave ours off now.

I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top

most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

Seized screws in Stoves 'Range 1000G Gas Range Cooker (LPG)

I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!

A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!

Burner on glass stove top has turned black

The nice grey-flecked surface coating is very thin; the solid black is underneath. You've "cleaned" the coating off -- that's why further scrubbing just makes it worse. We did the same thing :-(

I have the same stove but do not have a problem with the oven door hinges but rather the glass cooker hood hinges--although my knobs are starting to burn. Both hinges have popped in separate occasions and both times I have called the Cape Town agent foo Eurogas and had fantastic responses from them.

Top of Gemini range

Hello patricialc,

You said, you have the stainless Gemini range and the top is black. I cannot get the top clean. It looks like the paint or the surface is "bubbled". I have tried EVERYTHING and it always looks like there is grease spatters on the top. I have all Maytag appliances and I am VERY disappointed with this stove. If I could, I would take it back...but I keep trying. I let the Maytag stove I had go. It was made in the late '50's, so I could 'update'. What a mistake!!!

The other option is to order a new glass top and have it replaced.
No abrasives!!

Let me know how you do.
Please remember to leave a rating!
