Replacement of glass top

I shattered the glasstop on my stove. I need to know how to replace it I have a GE Sprectra stove with the glass top broken and am considering ordering that part to replace ourselves. Is it possible? I also wondered what the black sealant is around the top.

Check your warranty in the back of your use and care book. If the unit was manufactured prior to 1/1/06 it may have a five year part (not labor) warranty as long as you did not physically abuse it. The glass top comes as an assembled top (glass, the black seal, and the metal frame holding it)
Disconnect power. remove screws under the front edge of cook top. lift cook top and remove crossbars holding burners up against glass top. Unhook cook top / frame assemble. Install new top in reverse order.

I cracked my stove top where can i order it and install it

Posted on Nov 25, 2008

Just a note when you're doing this... when you open up the top, put a towel across each side so that when you drop a clip, it doesn't go down the side between the oven and the outside wall. If it does, hope that it goes all the way to the bottom where you can get at it by removing the bottom drawer. If you put the towel all the way across the oven box before you start taking things apart, you also won't have to worry about where little tiny screws go when you drop them... and, you will drop them! ;-)

Also, the old tops had a reinforcement bar that the ground was attached to. The new ones don't. There's a tiny hole on the flange of one of the right hand burner holes... that's where the ground is supposed to go on the new top. You WILL need a smaller self tapping screw than the original one.

And, forget having a helper... get something to prop the lid open with that won't fall if you raise the lid a little while you're working on it. Helper will just get in the way and can't hold it still enough while you''re trying to man handle those tiny little clips and screws that hold the burners in place.

How do I repair A knob that is broken off at the stem of my ge profile flat top stove?


You cannot repair this switch, you will have to replace it.
You will need to remove the cook-top and remove the glass top to access the switches. There will be a series of screws around the underside of the lip of the glass top that attach it to the burner box. Remove all of the remaining knobs and lift the glass straight off the box.
I would get your model number and order the replacement switch before starting the process.
good luck!

I need to replace the glass cooktop on my Maytag electric stove


  1. Open oven door and remove two screws that secure top.
  2. Lift up front and slide forward about 8 inches so that you can disconnect two wire couplings.
  3. Place on table upside down(I put newspaper down to catch the broken shards of glass) and remove burner unit (1piece, 4 screws).
  4. Place old burners on new stovetop in the same position as original.
  5. Remove 4 white plastic shims (round) from old stovetop and put on new stovetop.
  6. Tighten all screws and then sit it back on stove (two front tabs fit into slots) and then insert screws into holes and tighten.
  7. Took about 20 minutes, including vacuuming broken glass from inside burners and cleaning grease form crevices between burners and old stovetop.
  8. Wrap old stovetop in the newspapers that are underneath it and place it all in a plastic garbage bag to avoid any broken glass from falling out.

Glass top burned through


Yes, the top is available as a replacement part. You can check the link below to narrow down your exact range model number, as there are about 51 variations for this model series (you'll need the letters/numbers at the end of the FEF366 to zero in on the parts list).

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd;jsessionid=N9LEW3Qt6z2wIPtmEnod-w**.shcapp3106?modelNumber=+FEF366+&pop=flush

The cost for a new glass top is around $220 plus S&H (+/-). It is a relatively straightforward removal and replacement process, where all you need to do is disconnect the range from the power plug and pull it out from your counter, etc. and remove the rear fastening screws that hold the backsplash onto the top surface frame and exchange it for the replacement top.

Just be carefull when removing the old, broken top, as the glass will likely shatter more as you remove the frame. Wear safety glasses and work gloves to prevent getting cut, etc. All you need are simple hand tools to do the repair.

I always like to state that you might want to consider the age of the stove before committing a couple of hundred bucks to buying a repair part, but you have to decide if you're looking to keep and repair your stove, or whether you want to get a new one - the decision is yours to consider and make. Just a little FYI.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Broken glass top for my gas stove


You can buy just the glass for your glasstop stove. I too need to replace my glass...I have a whilpool electric glasstop. Its not cheap...may just buy new stove. I priced just the glass for my whilpool at the cheapest I can find for $320.00. Thats a lot. Mind you its not the elements under the glass..its just the glass! So...idk bout you, but a whole new stove might be my best option. If you want to price the glass for your model just keyword search your number and brand of stove and type replacement glass. GOODLUCK! :)

Exploding Door


the old exploding door ploy...
01:00 hrs while sipping on a very fine IPA watch a bit of tellie the sound of glass shattering startles me from the kitchen. preparing to find the daughter's cat, still in the house after evaded bed time radar, on the counter. instead the front glass on the our GE Profile gas range, model JGB908SEK1SS, is slowly spider webbing into pieces. i grabbed the video camera and captured the event. GE sent out a repair guy to quote me a whopping $304.27 to replace their faulty part. foot note here...the range is four yrs old and hadn't been used in more than 24 hrs prior to the glass on the door shattering. i don't believe the glass had a "fracture to it in the production cycle at the factory". being a DIY guy the service tech ordered the replacement part for me. i just received the replacement glass from GE and it's white which would be OK if we hadn't ordered it in stainless steal. did i mention it's taken 2 months to get the replacement glass. i've attached a photo of the cleaned door awaiting installation. i really wish it had been the cat...77f7f82.jpg
