I have an electric glass top with an electronic panel. I had a party
last night and someone hit the buttons on the control panel. The stove
now beeps, the door is locked. If I push the cancel button, it stops
beeping for a few seconds and then begins again and F9 comes on the
screen. It will not let me set it to clean or give it any other command.
I had this problem once before, but the door was open and I could reset
the lock from inside. If I can get the door to open, I think I can take
it from there.

The best bet is STOVES for a replacement - if they have one. It is relatively straightforward to replace. With all the buttons and knobs removed, there should be two screws underneath the panel , i.e. pointing upwards at either end of the panel,. The panel will also have two lugs along the top edge that locate into the top off the oven. The panels lugs should be first located into the oven before the screws are inserted. It may be a bit of a struggle but can be done.
While waiting for someone else to answer my question, I fiddled around with the door parts. I managed to reassemble them! Here's how:
1. start with the glass panel. Slide the glass panel into the slot at the bottom of the front door frame on the stove.
2. next attach the handle. There are slots on the bottom of the handle that fit into the top of the glass panel. Slide the handle slots into the top of the glass panel.
3. screw the handle onto the oven door using the predrilled holes on the inside face of the oven door.
4. last, attach each of the two side trim strips. Slide the top of each strip into the bottom of the handle on each side of the oven door. Then slightly bend the strip outwards so that they are short enough to fit into the bottom slot of the oven door frame on each side of the glass panel.
The top can be replaced but it is expensive. Your range is less than a year old call a local servicer to see if there may be warranty available to cover this problem it may not cost you anything. Good luck.
Hello Welcome to Fixya My name is Huum, You can replace the smooth top !. But I will tell you not to spend more than half the price of a new stove. How old is the stove and what's the model number! Waiting your response.

We had the same problem. But it would turn back on after 20 or so minutes. But as soon as it heated back up to 350 it would shut off completely. I called tech support but only got someone in India who I couldn't understand. Then I called a local technician and they charge a grip just to look at it! I finally got sick of it and banged on the control panel. To my surprise it turned right on and has been working ever since :) *This method is not recommended for use on children or animals.*
Two possible reasons come to mind.
1. There most likely was a short circuit that activated the top unit. Was any part of the top glowing when you looked at it while it was crackling?
2. Be aware that glass tops CANNOT take as heavy a load of pots and pans as a STANDARD range can. The glass will crack. The stress can accumulate over a period of time and you will be left with the 4 am madness dim experienced.
If anyone out there finds themselves in a similar situation, don't wait when you hear the crackling. Pull the the range plug, or find the ranges circuit breaker in your electrical box and turn it off.
