The glass burners are attached to a stainless steel frame by what looks like a black rubber moulded seal and one of the glass inserts is coming loose.Is there a high temperature adheasive that can be used to glue it down. The replacement part is $450.00 so if a glue will work it will save a lot of money.

Most of the time that GE attaches any type glass to hot metal these days they use silicone seal. It is uses to attach glass cooktops into the metal frame of the cooktop. Get a tube of GE clear silicone seal and glue the glass around the complete edge getting a good seal and contact at the glass edge and metal panel. Let it dry 24 hrs before reassemble. The silicone seal turns to rubber when dry and is quite heat resistant. It won't stand up to direct flame but should hold your glass well.
Hi, If the door isnt loose or broken? Its more likely to be the rubber door seal if its leaking between the seal and the door glass. Check the edge of the seal where it touches against the glass for damage or ware if its ok clean any soap residue or bits from the glass.If it still leaks change the door seal.

OF COURSE YOU CAN CHANGE IT YOURSELF, IF YOU HAVE PATIENCE. If you are very machanical, you should be ok, but if not, then you will want a 2nd person for help holding the frame anf glass window ,etcetera because it is tricky getting the seal and glass and frame and screws all together. Depending on the model, you may want to remove the door from the washer to handle it better, but on other models it is better to leave the door frame attached to give you a 3rd hand while you are contending with the the other parts. Good luck. Macgivor
If you are referring to the wire hoop with a small spring, this is the front bellow clamp. The bellow is the rubber door seal. Around the perimeter of the seal where it attaches to the door frame, is a small groove in the rubber. Make sure the rubber bellow is properly seated around the door frame opening, then the wire hoop inserts into the groove in the rubber to hold the front of the bellow affixed to the door frame. Without it and the bellow will eventually come loose and the washer will leak. To reinstall, just follow these steps:
1. Make sure the bellow is firmly seated all the way around the perimeter of the door frame.
2. Begin inserting the wire hoop into the groove, starting at the twelve o' clock position.
3. Work your way around the four and eight o'clock positions. While maintaining some downward pressure to keep the hoop inserted in the groove, pull the spring apart and snap the wire hoop back in place.
A second set of hands may come in handy to hold the hoop in position to get it reseated. Make sure the wire hoop ends up at the 6 o'clock position when you are complete.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: Overloading the washer with heavy items can contribute to premature wear on the bellow and can cause the clamps to come loose.

There are several reasons for this to happen.
the primary one is the fact that you are doing a lot of low temp washes, and this causes a build up of grease and dirt around the door seal, the mould you refer to is actually bacteria.
You must do a high temp wash at least once every 6 to 8 weeks, put powder and or detergent in as usual, but no washing, and let it do a full cycle.
This is called a maintenance wash and helps prevent what has happened to your m/c.
Thoroughly clean the door seal with a scouring pad or stainless steel wool, you will not harm the seal,
You will probably find the seal will be stained, but as long as you get all the mould etc off, it will be o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
I have a TEC Pattio II. I have owned the grill for almost 10 years and TEC grills have a ten year warranty on many of the parts including the burners. The burners on my grill have a ceramic inserts. The pop and loud whooshing noises indicate the ceramic insert or the seal on the burner is "cracked". I have replaced both of the inserts and burners on my grill once about 5 years ago under warranty. I have one burner now that will not stay burning and I contacted TEC today regarding the problem, and I will replace the ceramic insert only under warranty. .
The newest TEC grills like yours have the TEC Radiant Glass Infra-red Cooking System with stainless steel burners with glass surfaces. I assumed this burner system had eliminated the problem of the burners going out with a loud boom or sputtering.
