Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

Shattered ceramic cook top. When Sears came to look at it, they said it would cost $600 to repair. Are there some better options?

No. This part is very expensive and is usually not worth fixing. The part alone is around $400 - $500. You can install the part yourself but is the range worth it?

I just cracked my my GE cook top, pretty much right down the middle. All the eyes still work, all I need is the top part. For model number JD968SKSS, does anyone know where I can get just a replacement...


I am sorry to hear about that. I have had that issue with several ranges and have had to replace the whole unit because the cost is prohibitive.

REPLACE CRACKED GLASS COOK TOP


First of all, if the cook-top broke as a result of a manufacturer defect, the repairs should be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. In this case, the repairs would be done at no cost to you. If, however, the glass top was broken as a result of the consumer, the repair will not be covered (even if it is still under warranty). If this is the case, it does not require an engineer to replace a glass cook-top. It can be time consuming, though. If you are somewhat savvy with fixing things, it can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. The following link explains how to replace most glass cooktops:

The tedious part of replacing the cook-top is carefully removing and handling each burner element. These are usually ceramic and are very fragile. You must be handled with care. If there is no common disconnect, you also will be required to unplug each burner assembly one at a time and label the wires. A digital camera can come in very handy for this as well. The easiest way to do this is to remove the old shattered cook-top, first and lay it side by side with the new one. Remove and install one burner element at a time.

If you wish to pursue this and require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

I have cracked half of my ceramic stove top and am wondering if I can use the other half until I get it replaced? Also, I am wondering what the cost of replacing the ceramic cook top would be?


You can but its not a great idea. The heating and cooling of the surface burners will just crack it even worse. I wouldnt advise you to use it. But it can be used for very minimal cooking.

Shattered glass top for Hotpoint range/ how to replace


The cook top on your range should come off by removing 2 to 3 screws under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Once you have them removed the top should lift up. Please ensure you have the range unplugged and/or the circuit breaker turned off before attempting any repairs to the heating elements. Live voltages are still present with the unit turned off. Now...depending on the type and model of your range, the wiring harness may have a quick disconnect type of plug. If yours is so equipped, replacing the top will be a cinch, because you can remove it from the range to work on it. Take the old top and new top and place them next to each other upside down on a padded surface. Placing some towels on a kitchen table or counter top works best. Now all you have to do is carefully transfer the entire harness and burner elements to the new cook top. You should be able to move the entire assembly with all the burners still connected. A second set of hands will make the process go much easier. If your range does not have the quick disconnect type of wiring harness have someone hold the cook top up or prop it up with something. Carefully remove the element mounting brackets from the cook top (with all the elements still attached). Carefully support all the wires as you do so, and lay the entire assembly (elements and wires) on top of the oven cavity insulation. Once you have everything disconnected from the cook top, discard the old one and position the new one in place. Carefully reinstall the elements while supporting the wires. Additional care should noted not to handle the ceramic material of the elements and/or the heat coils themselves. They are very fragile and the oil from your hands can potentially damage the elements and shorten the life of them. Let me know if this helpful to you. If you get stuck along the way, or have any questions, please respond to this posting by adding additional comments.
