The glass cannot be repaired but as long as the glass is not cracked this will not keep you from using the burner. Any glue used would burn off the first time you used the burner. There is a possibility that at some point the glass could still crack but use it the way it is. If it cracks the glass top will need to be replaced. The glass top is expensive and should only be replaced if it cracks. Let me know if you have other questions about this.
