GE stovetop fire - worth salvage?

(1/2) > >>

magnaryder02:
My neighbor had a grease fire on their stove top and replaced the microwave and oven combo and are tossing out the microwave and oven since they were a set (the microwave got toasted).  It has a ceramic stove top and would be an upgrade over mine.  She hasn't used it since the fire and doesn't know anything about it.  The only thing I can visually see is the stove top is scorched, but it rubs off.  No damage to the controls or oven.  This is a freebee so is there any damage I should look for that might not make this worthwhile?

Model J BP66D0M2BB

Repair-man:
Can you find the model number inside the lower door so we can see it too?

Model number:  J BP66D0M2BB

I took some pictures, the control unit where the clock and controls are will need to be replaced because it is melted.  What do I need to get for this.  The surface is rough  around the big burner, but is fine everywhere else.  Do I need to replace this part too?

Repair-man:
The overlay on the clock which is melted is called the "Faceplate Graphics" in GE terminology, and carries a part number of WB27T11005. I can't find it anywhere, but good luck if you can, because the damage appears to be mostly  cosmetic.

magnaryder02:
The stuff behind the face is damged too, none of the buttons work.

Also does the cooktop need to be replaced or can it be fixed (or used as is)?
