Cracked glass top

After the "hot" lights went out, I began to clean the top with proper cleanser and I heard and saw it crack from one of the burners.

    What might have caused such a thing?

    We have the same thing, same way it happened. Now we have several more cracks. The Ge smooth top is only 3 years old.

    I can't find the warrenty, but I doubt we have any recorse there.

Your crack was most likely cause by a flaw in the glass top. Most GE smooth-top ranges (espesially if manufactured prior to 1/1/06) have a five year warranty covering this type of failure. The labor is not covered after the first year. Check the back pages of your use and care book for warranty info on your model. I'd advise against continued use of the cook top with a crack, as spills can get to components and cause further damage.

Can the glass of a whirlpool cerano hob suddenly crack?


You didn't need 'red hot' to simmer. When you got it red hot, and then put the pan on it, the pan sucked the heat out of the ring to fast, and caused stress in the glass causing it to crack. Tops are meant to be used the way you used it. Your fault I am afraid.

The top can be replaced.

May I cook on the rounds not cracked when the stovetop glass is cracked?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

First, go to Lowe's or Home depot. Purchase a electrical tape rated for 700 Degrees F. and seal the crack.

Second, you want to make sure no fluid or what ever gets into the crack. This will knock out your heating element and burner control.

Third, You can use the other burners. The temperature may be a bit higher than the burner control indicates.

Fourth, Purchase a new glass top. There are only a couple of screws that hold it on.

Fifth, Go into the following web site. Put in your model number. This should be on a metal plate after you open the oven door, on the face of the unit. Plug in your model number.

Sixth, On the diagram on this site locate the part number for the glass top. Search the internet for best price.

Not getting any hot water. Pilot light and burner seem to be working properly. Went from working fine in morning to not working at all this evening.


No hot water anywhere,or just one faucet,doesn't sound right if burner is working,if its coming on then your gas valve/thermostat on front is not working properly.Can be changed,but I would turn up temp. red dial see if she fires and watch to see if she stays on.Gas valve is threaded in and can be changed,depending on warranty.Could also be dip tube is cracked or broken in half,its a tube that forces cold water to bottem of tank,if not working you'll get a real short shower because cold water is in top of tank.Tube can be replaced,its on the cold water fill side which would have to be taken apart.Thinking now its your tube

I need a replacement glass pot, mine cracked while making coffee. The heating unit gets really hot. I heard the crack immediately when the fluid began to flow.


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers who can supply spares as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

GE EVOLUTION Glass top. The hot surface(Glass top)


Individual burners, located directly under the cooktop glass, contain a temp sensor which lights up the hot surface lamp when they sense a hot condition. If the light stays on after all burners are cool, one of the sensors has shorted out. The sensors are an integral part of the burner, so the offending burner must be replaced to solve your constant on hot light.

My smooth cook top is cracked, can I still use the burners?


using a cracked cooktop is highly dangerous. i have seen these cooktops shatter because of people using them with a crack. One shattered so bad that the glass was found all over the kitchen and the ajoining living room.

Please dont use it, for your safety, repair or replaced the unit

I have a GE profile Glass top M#JSP47COF4CC That is cracked but can't figure out haw to remove. Have already removed 4 screws under control panel still won't budge


To remove the top on this range, remove burner knobs and face plate, then remove 2 screws from control panel one at each end. Fold panel down out of the way, remove 5 screws accross front of control panel and release 2 quick connect plugs for burners, then lift to remove glass top. Flip over remove 2 screws and clips from each burner and the indicator light assembly just pops out. Transfer this to new top and reverse your steps for removal.

Glasstop stove chiped


Keep using the range if the glass is cracked all the way through it will appear quickly. Then the glass top will have to be replaced . There is no fix for the glass top. You might get lucky and nothing will happen.
