How to repair cracked corner of black ceramic cooktop

We just installed a jenn air downdraft cooktop with black ceramic top under the burners. Before we ever used it, a wooden bowl from a shelf above fell on the corner and crack and chipped the glass. The cooktop cost $1100. The replacement cost of the glass alone is $950. Can it be repaired with something like epoxy? The glass is $450, the trim $270. The rest of the unit works fine. This cost seems ridiculous and I might as well buy a new unit and donate this one to Habitat or something for tax credit. I would want to fix it decently if I am going to donate it. Any solutions?

Epoxy would not work. If it is a very small chip and is NOT STRUCTURAL or in the heated are you could TRY the adhesive used for rear view mirror to glass attachment.

I have a Jenn Air gas cooktop, only about 2 years

If the burner just clicks and won't stare try this (a local tech showed me) Scrape the underside of the burner cap (the removable black disk in the middle of the burner) with a key or knife and watch it work! But be ready to do it again and again. There's a glossy finish left by the factory he said.

Jenn-Air Cooktop replacement needed

You can get a new cooktop surface from Maytag/Jennair for $229. It is a pain however to replace it. Where is the crack in your cooktop and does that crack pass directly through a heating element? If not, then you may be able to repair it. I broke the corner off mine, and then dropped the piece (now 5 pieces). I was able to bond them back together and you really can't tell it was ever broken. But, it takes some work.

Remove ceramic cooktop

grouch, kill the power to the cooktop. You are going to have to remove the mounting brackets from undernieth and push the cooktop up. After it's up from it's installation position remove the side and back screws holding the top to the botom. Remove the burner knobs and it should come apart. Sounds like you have a bad burner switch.
