Profile gas on glass cooktop

I'm at my wits end! I knew I shouldn't have bought this glass cooktop. We remodeled our whole kitchen and choose the profile glass cooktop, (my husband liked it) I wanted the regular profile.
I can't get it clean--it takes me about 1/2 hour after dinner each night to get it just looking decent. I've been cooking for 40 years and have never had to work this hard at keeping a cooktop clean. I bought the cream and use a cloth to clean it, then a damp one to rinse, then a dry one to buff---give me a break---I should have done my homework and checked out other women who purchased it. I don't even want to cook on it. I went to a local Sears to obtain another bottle of cream; the saleperson said that she's had two people complain about the same thing, ( they were not GE profiles, just glass cooktops). I really want to trade this one in on a normal Profile--it's only 2 months old and already the gas cover is losing its black coating around the edges. Please help me. I spent a lot of money on it and am completely dissatisfiled. My e mail is m.kerfoot@comcast.net. Thank you, Maria

    My cooktop edges are all chipped and the touchup paint you buy is a different finish than what's on the edges. My cooktops are a mess with parts that are dotted with white.



    I used dw solution one night out of frustration and I couldn't get that off. The creme I bought was $37 a bottle and it still doesn't clean it up. The worst is when water boils over.



    I hate the thing.

Hello mkerfoot, I know the feeling. The same complaint I hear about on SS. I just sink type dish washing detergent to clean the grease off and a paper towel with vinegar water solution. For heavy staining on the burner area, apply the dw detergent full strenght and let it sit to loosen the debre. Hope this helps.

I have a glass 4 gas burner stove top and cracked the glass, can I replace it? Its a GE Profile with a stainless steel front lip


Yes the glass is replaceable, you will have to order a new one, and you could do so through an appliance parts store. They can even put it in for you.

Cooktop glass broken - need a replacement - where can I find it?


It all depends on our capabilities... The top isn't all that difficult to replace. If it were me, I would call GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or schedule an appointment online at www.geappliances.com as there may still be a warranty on the top which is expensive...

Gas leak within cooktop


What do you mean it has a leak inside? You can remove the glass top by carefully lifting it up and out of the countertop and the removing either the phillips, 1/4" or Torx screws around the lip under the glass. Pull off the knobs and the glass will s-l-o-w-l-y come up with even steady lifting force. Where gloves in case it breaks but it shouldn't as long as you don't drop in on a corner

GE cooktop has porceline "popping" off literally.


Porceline (a coating over metal in this case) is actually a type of glass, and subject to fracture upon sudden thermal shock or physical stress. The part you indicate is WB62T10124 for a JGB939C1WW probably a bit over $150 or a WB62T10132 for a JGP939C2WW, probably a bit over $100, but the labor to replace it would be costly. If you rate this, please remember I did not manufacture this product, nor am I a GE employee, so please don't shoot the messenger.

The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...
