Warning: Use of sponges or cleaners other than those recommended can result in damage to the cooktop.

Heavy, Burned-On Residue
  1. Allow the cooktop to cool.
  2. Spread a few drops of Cerama Bryte® over the entire burned-on area.
  3. Hold a razor scraper at approximately a 45º angle against the ceramic glass surface and scrape soil. It will be necessary to apply pressure to the razor scraper in order to remove the residue.
  4. Keep small amount of cream on the residue as you scrape.
  5. After scraping with razor scraper, use the scrub sponge to remove any remaining residue.
  6. For additional protection, after all residue has been removed, polish the entire surface with the Cerama Bryte® and a paper towel.
Note: The razor scraper (WX10X0302) is available to purchase through GE Parts. The razor blade is packed inverted for safety reasons. Prior to use, the blade must be rotated and reinserted into slot. Do not use a dull or nicked blade.

Water or White Marks
  • If there are areas with a metallic sheen, they are caused by mineral deposits from evaporated water and food. You can remove them by cleaning with Cooktop Cleaning Cream.
Metal marks and scratches
  • Be careful not to slide pots and pans across your cooktop; it will leave metal markings on the cooktop surface.
  • These marks are removable using the cleaning cream with scrub sponge and/or razor scraper.
  • If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum or copper are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may leave black discoloration on the cooktop.
  • This should be removed immediately before heating again or discoloration may be permanent.
Warning: Carefully check the bottom of pans for nicks, gouges, or any rough area as these types of imperfections will scratch the cooktop.
Potential For Permanent Damage From Sugary Spills and Melted Plastic

Our testing shows that if you are have a spillover from high sugar mixtures or melted plastic you should:
  1. Turn off all surface units. Remove hot pans.
  2. Wear an oven mitt.
  3. Use the razor scraper to move the spill to a cool area on the cooktop.
  4. Remove the spill with paper towels.
  5. Any remaining spillover should be left until the surface of the cooktop has cooled.
  6. Do not use the surface units again until all residue has been completely removed.
Plastic or Porcelain from a Teapot

If any plastic, or porcelain from a teapot, melts/hardens onto the glass it usually can not be removed because it bonds to the glass. The cooktop glass will have to be replaced.

"IF" the plastic has not already hardened, you may try gently removing it (no promises here). If this is unsuccessful, service will be necessary.

Note: If pitting or indentation in the glass surface has already occurred, the cooktop glass will need to be replaced. GE Service may be scheduled on-line.
