Glasstop Stove


Hello,

I am new here and new (just posted in the introduction forum) to appliances in general. My technical background gives me the groundwork necessary to quickly gain an understanding of most any electro-mechanical device.

I have a customer who has a glass top stove with one burner out but I have not had much luck finding information on how these devices work in general or what variations have developed since the products came to market. Can anyone enlighten me a bit on the basics of the glass top stove or point me toward the appropriate information?

Thank you for your assistance.

Steve

Works like any other stove except coil is under glass. Suggest keying [n model number at an on-line parts supplier. most will provide parts breakdown.

are you supposed to be some kind of service man or handyman or what? If you are a repairman and asking this type of question I think maybe your in over your head. Troubleshooting a non working element is kinda rudimentary

hardwareman, thank you for your interest in sharing your thoughts. Please take the time to read the background information I have posted and ask respectful questions designed to gain information. I do not understand why you would come "running out with guns-a-blazin'". It is not helpful and will not benefit either of us. I hope you find someone to remove that thorn from your paw. Have a nice day.

why would I take the time to read your profile, will it explain why a person doing appliance repair service can not even trouble shoot a range element? Will it benefit me to read your profile? Why not just answer my question?

Read your intro message. if you're going to be a bonafide appliance service tech, i.e.-possess the necessary tech skills, have proper ins, and licencing etc-[which i think is what HW/man was alluding to- just we see a lot of 'hackers'] Welcome! you can purchase Service guides -through auth oem distb-...if you meet the criteria; there are private forumns, i.e. repairnet.com---servicetechhelp.com--that would be a help to you getting started. there are also assc you can join-United Servicers--PSA-to name two, plus conventions during the year. first thing you have to do though, is; get registered with one or two OEM parts distb [depends on state=sales tax licence...good luck.

Everybody take some deep cleansing breaths.

Not all those glass top stoves are the same. Some have convection type elements and not typical burners.

Aunt and Uncle had an old JennAir that finally cracked to pieces. Replacement tops were no longer made.
