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.

The only thing cleaner than the glass ceramic surface of Viking electric cooktops is the installation.
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.
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

I scoured the internet trying to find how to clean inside the glass of my Electolux Icon double wall ovens. Short of "The Big Q-tip" method (which only made a smeared mess) I didn't find anything. So I went ahead and started taking the doors apart. I'm happy to report I just finished with fantastic results. So I'm going to do a step by step, I know I would have appreciated reading instructions for it. It's very easy but time consuming. You'll need a large work area because there are actually 4 sheets of glass, a Philips screwdriver, and a straight razor with handle.
Refer to your manual on how to take the doors off - but it's very easy. Simply open the door, flip the locks toward you and pull up and out at the same time. Be careful...the door is very heavy.
Lay door on blanket or towel, especially if it's stainless steel. There are 4 screws along each side of the door. The 2 screws that hold the hinge at the bottom are smaller than the 2 closer to the top.
On the very bottom there are two more screws to hold the bottom outer frame. Under that piece are 2 more screws that hold the inner bottom frame. That's it. Slide out the hinges and you're ready to go.
Remove those 2 frame pieces and keep in mind how they fit back together. Remove the top piece of glass and put on another towel. Now I'm not sure if it matters but I was mindful of the side of each piece of glass as I remove and cleaned them to make sure they went back exactly as they came out.
The first piece is going to be the most time consuming to clean. One took me over an hour. The grease is hard to get off because it just spreads around. I found a straight razor really sped this along, just make sure you always use the razor on wet glass or you'll scratch the glass. It's fiddly...just keep at it. I also used mineral spirits to help degrease. When done I laid this on the dining table.
The next 2 pieces of glass are in a frame that comes out together. The frame is only on the sides so be careful it doesn't come apart on you when carrying it. Inside the frame piece is a rubber gasket to separate the 2 pieces of glass. Watch how the frame comes off, there is a wide and a narrow side. It's easier to take off the frame piece and simply lift of the first piece of glass. The bottom piece of glass sits in a channel of the rubber gasket.
Pretty simple. Lots of elbow grease if you cook a lot. Reverse the order to reassemble. One thing to note - on the door sides near the top, you'll see a silver metal piece inside the black frame. Make sure the screw holes are visible thru the black frame. I have very small fingers so it was easy to do it with my fingers but I would imagine someone with large hands will have some difficulty. Also, when screwing the hinge in place I had to twist the hinge so the screw hold was up against the black frame. The screws are so short that they'll just spin without catching if you don't.
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.

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.

There is a rubber seal that runs along the bottom of the door. If you carefully run your hand along there just to see if it is all even. Sometimes they get out of place and you can push it back and then closing the door it realigns itself and all is good. If the seal is damaged, you have to replace the door liner as the seal is attached.
