Do-It-Yourself Maintenance Tips

Cooktops

  • Clean up spills immediately. Because today's appliances are controlled by electronics, you need to clean up liquids immediately to avoid shorting the circuits.
  • Do not use spray cleaners on gas cooktops. Spray cleaners make things shine because they contain wax.  However, the wax can cause problems with ignitors.

Before you call for a repair

Because of electronics, today's appliances are designed to last 8 to 12 years. If your cooktop is more than 10 years old you might consider replacing your cooktop rather than repairing it. Should you decide to purchase a new cooktop, we recommend visiting Pearson's Appliance.
