Replacing glass top stove HELP!!!

Hi, I have a kitchen aid glass top stove, approx 2-3 years old. I left a tea kettle on it, (too long) it melted a nickle size divit out of the glass and 2 cracks run out from the divit in opposing directions...
question 1: can i still safely use the other burners? the crack does not go over or near the other burners.
question 2, how can i replace this without a taking out a second mortgage on the house? ps ive been told it would be cheaper to buy another stove altogether

    Hi, I dropped a Pepper Mill on my glass top stove, and chiped off a small piece on the edge... I really don't want to replace the entire stove it is not that bad, but it bothers me. Does anyone know if there is any way to repair this or some type of filler?

    My son dropped a glass bowl from the overhead microwave onto the stove...completely ruined it. There is even a hole down into the stove. Cracks to 3 of the 4 burners and into the warming center. (So glad I wasn't home at the time of the destruction, I could have been writing this E-mail from prison!) Sears will come out to see the problem for a minimum of $65, it will be around $260 to replace the glass top and hinges, or we can get a new stove for $329 (not glass top). What to do? What to do?

    I left a pot of water boiling for too long.  Water evaporated and the pot cooked on the stove for a bit.  Left a "metal ring type of stain".  Not sure if there is a cleaning solution that will work.  If it needs to be replaced I am not sure how to go about that.

    I noticed a crack in my glass top of my stove yesterday and the crack runs across the whole top. Is there something I can buy or do to fix it and does anyone know if it will get worse or something happen if I continue to use my burners??? Stove is only a few years old so this really sucks.

You can buy replacement tops for your range. Check with your manufacturer for local parts distributors or service locations and they should be able to find you one. There is also online part stores that sell them like anywhere from 150-400$

Since nobody has posted any suggestions, here's what I'm going to try to do to fix mine. The glass on my stove measures roughly 27" x 20" it is sealed with what looks like the same rubber material that is used to seal window glass. I'm going to the glass place today to see how much it would cost to cut a piece of black glass to that size and then install it myself using a similar type of caulk sealant that is heat resistant.

Same problem, and we continued to cook on the stove and the cracks just spread, eventually creating a couple of holes! A good solution would be greatly appreciated.

    I had this problem (cracked glass top) and solved it by replacing the top. Sears Parts can get you a new top for about $300. To install, open the oven door and look upward and you will see two silver colored screws. Remove both. Now gently pull up and out slightly on the control panel.
    This should reveal two screws on the very sides of the front panel underneath that hold the chrome trim strips that are on each side of the glass top. When these screws are removed gently pull up on the trim strips and then out. After both are removed you can loosen the screws that secure the top assembly to the front of the range. As I am assuming you top is broken into pieces, now carefully remove any loose pieces of glass, being careful not to let
    pieces fall into the elements and/or below. After the loose pieces are removed gently pull up on the glass top assembly. After you have lifted the front about 2 inches, gently pull the top assembly toward you and lift it off, being careful not to drop any loosened glass pieces. Now you can use you vacuum cleaner to carefully clean the glass from within the heating element and remove any glass that fell into the element assembly. After all of the glass is cleaned out slide you new top assembly back on to your range. Replace the two screws and reinstall the two chrome strips (one on each side) and lift the control panel back over the two guide pins and secure it in place with the two chrome screws.

We have a Kitchen Aid Electric stove about 10 years old and there was no owners manual left from the last owner. This week we turned on the oven and there is no heat from the elements on both the bake and...

The first thing I would check is the breaker for the oven at the breaker box. I have encountered similar problems and a partially thrown breaker ( or one pole of a double-pole breaker) can cause this. Find your "range breaker" in your breaker box and cut it off then flip it back on. There is a good chance that might fix your breaker. If it is an older house with fuses, then the range would be on two fuses and one of them is blown. This happens to dryers also (if the right fuse/breaker goes, the motor runs but it won't heat)
Hope this helps

Here is an article I just read about this matter!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Thank You, HUUUM

Dirt and grease between glass in oven door

i have taken the glass from the inside of the oven,and just cant get grease off, tried everything ,bleach,even lemon juice,
any ideas jimmy

Canning kettle

I have used a 8 qt. pressure canner (which holds 4 qt) and have done beans and venison. It also holds quarts. I also use an 8 qt. faberware kettle that holds 5 or 6 pint jars with a metal spacer from my pressure canner on the bottom. No problems for 10 years......except my self cleaning oven doesn't work but I don't think that has any thing to do with the canning on top. The bottom of the kettle has to be SMOOTH and FLAT so a regular canner (blue, ribbed bottom) won't work. Burner will come on and off.

Replacing a glass cook top

I have the replacement cook top that you need (part #WB56T10165). I work for a GE Appliance distributor and will sell you the part for WAY less than list price. The item is an unopened, genuine GE replacement part.

Let me know if you're interested.
