Use WD-40 and a razor. An entire base of a kettle melted on to the ceramic stove top, and got it off in minutes. Works like a charm.
Just get a magic eraser wet, and wipe your stove down and if there is a few pieces of plastic left on the stove just use a razor and gently scrape it off!
I use easyoff oven cleaner. Spray on the area let stand 15 minutes, then scrape off with a razor... Presto..it's gone. This how I clean it all the time. The razor will not scrath the surface,.
TAKE SOME WAX PAPER AND PUT IT OVER THE MELTED PLASTIC AND TAKE A HOT IRON AND IRON OVER THE TOP OF IT. WHEN THE PLASTIC IS SOFT ENOUGH YOU CAN PEEL OR SCRAPE IT OFF. I ALWAYS HAVE A PLASTIC SCRAPER ON HAND. HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU.
I burned plastic on mine once, and just carefully used the razor scraper - works great.
I always keep a single edged razor blade in my kitchen on the formica splashback edge for just such projects.
Also, if you are careful with the spray/splash and have a light touch, you can use oven cleaner letting it sit for about an hour, and that, too will remove it, rinsing with cool water and a paper towel. Wear gloves, use ventilation.
God bless and help you. : )
WD-40 takes plastic bags off toasters. May be that would work on the stovetop. Remembered a wash it thoroughly before firing it up.
I like my razor scraper--just be careful to keep the angle close to the stove so you don't risk scratching. I also like Bon Ami (a scratchless powder) for tough messes on mine.
I use an old credit card (or grocery "savings" card) as a scraper to remove difficult substances without scratching the surface. This might help.
I've use a razor blade on mine. Also the tabs off of bread bags make good scrapers.
