I dropped a jar on the ceramic cooktop now the hot surface light will not go off


Each element contains a sensor that activates an attached switch to the hot indicator light. The shock of the dropping jar may have damaged the switch.The associated element will have to be replaced.

The left front burner will turn on for a few seconds then turn off then back on and off. It would not heat the pan on it. This is a glass top range. Are there any tests that I can do to find the problem?...


If the rest of the hotplate elements are working correctly and you are performing the same tests with all of them then you have a problem. We know that the hotplate works. When hotplates are faulty they don't turn on and off, they just don't work. This would generally be a hotplate controller problem. It sounds as if the controller is faulty and requires replacing. If you are handy you can switch the suspect hotplate controller with a good one and see what happens. This will confirm our suspicions.

Have a glas fireplace insert that a kids rubed a acrylic blanked up against when extremely hot and now it is baked onto glass surface.


Chip it off with a single edge razor blade ... I suggest you get the holder for this blade at your ACE or other fine hardware store in your area. Spend about $4.00 to prevent injury.

  • you may also need 120~180 grit sanding by hand only and finish with the 7447 pad.
  • -Re-clean with DeBruce Polish. Touch ups are now a breeze

    Maytag Gemini oven glass door panels impossible to clean


    We had an ugly spill of hot grease/water from a roast, and lots of it ran right into the vent holes on our oven door, covering various layers of glass and other parts inside the door. Yuck. Thankfully we found this site!

    "fixetheoven" was certainly on the right track, but missed a key step that makes this job much, much easier. (Maybe they had a few too many sips of wine during the process?! :-)

    Anyway, the key to make the job easy, and do-able by one person, is to pull the door off the hinges before starting to remove any screws! Here's how we did it:

    1. Open the door about four inches or so, it will stay in place. Hold the door at the sides and lift it up, sliding it right off of the hinges! Now lay it carefully face up on a table so you have easy access to the screws, and no danger of the glass dropping out of the bottom of the door (as apparently happened to "fixedtheoven".)
    2. Remove the two screws that hold the panel on one side of the door. (One screw is halfway up the side panel, the other is on the bottom edge of the door.)
    3. Slide the panel off, paying close attention to how it fits into place so you can return it to its original position later!
    4. Remove the two screws that hold the panel on the other side of the door, and slide that panel out as well.
    5. Remove the three screws that hold the panel across the bottom edge of the door, and remove that panel.
    6. Now you can slide the front glass out from under the top edge of the door.
    7. Clean the front glass, the side panels, and the bottom panel, as needed.
    8. There will be another layer of glass inside the door. If it needs cleaning on the underside, remove the screws from one of the metal brackets that hold the glass in place. You can then slide this piece of glass out from the metal bracket at the other side.
    9. After cleaning everything, reassemble the door by reversing the above steps.
    10. Lift the door by the sides and carefully slide it back into place on the hinges. Be sure it is properly in place and being held there before you let go!!
    11. Now go pour that glass of wine and sip to your heart's content, while admiring how clean your oven door is!

    If you are saying that the grease got in between the layers of glass (lamination), then you will have to disassemble the door, clean the glass, and reassemble. I haven't done this job on your particular model, but have on others and it is a tedious & time consuming task.

    If though the grease is just cooked onto the inner surface of the glass on the oven door, you could use a single edge razor to scrape the gunk off (being extremely careful not to flip the blade causing you injury), as you would ice off a windshield with an ice scraper. There are handles made to keep the blade secured while using it (making it less likely to flip and injure the user).
