Cooktop glass broken - need a replacement - where can I find it?
GE Profile Cooktop - Model # JP989BK1BB
We broke the glass top and I understand I can buy just the glass replacement instead of replacing the whole unit. I would like to know if in fact I can replace the glass top and not the whole unit. If I can, what does the replacement glass cost and where is the best place to purchase it from? Also, can I replace this myself or do I have to have a repairman/technician perform the replacement?

Re: Cooktop glass broken - need a replacement - where can...
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...

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop
First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.
I'm sorry to hear this. you can get just the top, but your lookingat somewhere between 300-700 dollars just for the glass. also this is not a common part and will probably be back ordered, so you'll be looking at a wait of 2-5weeks for the part. you can change it yourself but due to the cost of the glass I would have a service company change it so that if it breaks while changing they will have to pay for a second one and you wouldn't be stuck having 2 broken glasses
TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER. Lift out cooktop, remove all machine screws holding the glass frame. Remove plastic knobs and lift glass top straight up. Make sure rubber gromits are not ripped or torn. Unscrew the small screws on the selector switch and then lift up and tilt over the small aluminum chasis holding the switches to expose the wiring connections. Pull off the wires and pull out the defective switch. Replacre switch, connect wires, re-seat switch chasis, and secure switch with screws. Carefully drop in the glasstop lining up the switch shafts and the rubber grommets. Secure the top with machine screws and drop back in the cutout.
The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.
