Definately a problem. We bought our first glasstop stove about 10 years ago and the quality and workmanship was great. The stove itself looked and felt (we clean behind the stove weekly) heavy-duty.
We had no issues with it.
We recently moved to a new province and bought the same brand as we had before. It was the more expensive model, however we immediately noticed that the quality was not as good as the first one we bought. Within 1-2 years of the initial purchase, we saw pits on the stove top - the only thing to have spilled over was water. Should not cause pits. It took weeks of "discussion" with the warranty holder until they finally replaced the stove.
Some of the stoves today are being made in Mexico, and the place we got our replacement at even the sales person complained about the quality of the product. If I remember correctly, Kenmore is also made in Mexico which is where our Whirlpool Gold is made.
It should be under warranty, so I'd have it checked out. I would also suggest buying an extended warranty on the stove.
