Question about Whirlpool 30" Schott Ceran Surface Electric Cooktop Finish: Black

Open Question

Can the glass of a whirlpool cerano hob suddenly crack?

I was cooking rice on the front left ring but it started boiling and water was coming out of the pan and falling on top of the ring (I realised this ring was too big for the pan), so I turned on the front right ring waited till red hot and continued cooking the rice there as it is a smaller ring) 2 or 3 minutes after, while I was doing something else in the kitchen, I heard a cracking noise (glass cracking) so I checked and this zone had cracked and chipped. Any insight on this problem. I am a tenant and my landlord does not believe me when I say I did not hit the glass - it just cracked on its own?

Mine cracked and I ordered a replacement shipped overnight. I can't get a repair person out before Christmas. Is it easy to do it myself?

most of the time for this to happen something would have had to been dropped or excessive weight on the unit ... it is possible over time the unit had a unseen hairline crack and the heat has caused it to become worse... the glass for these units are ridiculous in cost but can be repaired...
several online sites sell parts.... a few reputable companies are

Induction hob neff T4243 has cracked will I need to replace it


Hi,
Did you crack your hob by means of impact or did it happen on its own accord?
I have a neff induction hob and has just cracked in 3 directions while cooking this evening. I am just trying to determine if there is a common fault with this neff product or I am just unfortunate. Mine is under warranty and have a engineer coming on Monday, so have the whole weekend with no hob as I have been advised not to use it.

Many thanks

Hi glors732,m

A chip perhaps, but not a crack, you will need to replace the whole glass panel. Will be quite expensive though.

Kind Regards

The top of my halogen hob has cracked from top to bottom thro the centre is there any way of repairing it? it is a 5 ring creda rangemaster


you cant repair the glass but you can get the ceramic glass as a spare part. you will need the exact model number to get the correct part once done your hob looks brand new. if cracked through one of the zones you could chack there is no damage to element or themal cutout running across the centre of the element before proceeding.

Was cooking fudge-hot sugary liquid boiled over onto glass cooktop. I tried to clean, but appears as if glass top has been ruined. It is rough. Tried scraping with razor, but does not help. Used cooktop...


Maybe try white vinegar - apparently you can clean glass hobs with it & it might help dissolve the fudge stuff if you pour it on that. I wouldn't use a razor as you might damage the hob more.

Great.. finally. i manage find from solution from user guide.. L is Locked. below is the instruction. will check out tonight. 
The locking function holds the current settings, or prevents anyone from starting the hob. It is also used for cleaning the control strip as the controls can be locked without the hob being on. To lock the hob : -Press the on/off button     . -Press simultaneously " - " button and " + " button of the front right zone (PVD 633 front left zone), and then press again on the " + " button of this zone. The hob is locked, the locking indicator " L " is displayed on all zones for 20 seconds. To unlock the hob : -Press the on/off button      .

Flame on gas hob not correct.


I'm not sure what you mean by a proper efficient flame. I just recently went through an experience I'll relate to you here. I purchased a GE Profile dual fuel range. I can get more specific if you'd like but here's the point. The highest burner on the range was rated at 17000 BTU's. A friend recommended the range to me and sang it's praises. I took delivery of my new toy and couldn't wait to get a pot on the stove to start cooking a long wait for pasta. Twenty minutes later I was finally seeing bubbles! I spilled the water out and measured 12 cups of water into the pasta pot at room temperature. That's three quarts of water. 20 minutes to see bubbles and never would it come to the expected "rolling boil". My experience has always been with electric ranges and I am new to gas but 20 minutes? Something had to be wrong, right? Wrong! Much research later I've found it is common for natural gas to LP conversion stoves to lose a good deal of their oumph when converted. GE as it turns out is one of the most notorious for a serious degredation in BTU output. After exploring GE's site I found that this same stove running under LP gas is rated(for the highest burner) at 11000 BTU's! No wonder I couldn't boil water! Back to the store it went and I am still in search of a stove that will meet my needs. Don't know if this will help you or if this is the same issue you are dealing with but maybe just maybe. Good luck!
