Hi- High temps make for tricky maintenance of glass or ceramic tops. The heat element must pass its heat energy through the glass or ceramic and into the pan. Water droplets will steam away, while a spatter of oil or even a few grains of sugar will melt and burn to a tough film of carbon on the surface. The obvious preventitive measures of checking pan bottoms thoroughly before contact with clean (yes- very clean) cooktop surface mean most spots may be small, they can be annoying to look at and tough to remove. My best cleaning results for these spots came from using a VERY small amount of OVEN cleaner (use gloves) on a paper towel placed on spot for a few minutes. A clean, new razor blade may be used to scrape off film. Hope this helps. - Thanks- ED

This is becoming a common problem. If your dual burners are controlled by the burner switch only, then you need to replace your dual burner infinite switch. Some models have a seperate rocker switch that switches from small burner to both burners. If you have this style then this is usually your problem. Can also be from shorted wiring but this is very unlikely. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

When you dont replace the ceramic top that ios cracked could cause issues in your circuit board. The best thing t do is buy a new stove. The parts nad labor along is going to cost you about the same price as a new one.

Ceramic/glass top stove


Lift the ceramic top and look at the burnner to see if it is bad or not.
You only have to take 2 screws in the front of the ceramic top at the bottom, just open the oven door and look at the corners.
Don't forget to unplug the stove first

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

Whirlpool Oven, Ceran stove top


I want to say that since I posted my original problem with black spots appearing on the Schott Ceran top, I took pictures of the top and attached them to a complaint sent to Maytag. Approximately 3 days later, a Maytag representative phoned and offered a brand new top-basically stating that there is a fault with the tops. They would not pay for the labor to replace the top. My husband downloaded the instructions from Maytag website and installed it himself. These spots actually appear from within the surface and are not the result of a boil over, etc. The spots on my burner grew to the width of the burner. If you search the internet, you will see many others with the same problem with the Schott Ceran tops. I will never buy another!
