Coil Elements and Burner Bowls

(on some models)
Coil elements should be level for optimal cooking results. Burner
bowls, when clean, reflect heat back to the cookware. They also
help catch spills.
Cookware should not extend more than 1 in. (2.5 cm) over the
coil element. If cookware is uneven or too large, it can produce
excess heat causing the burner bowl to change color. For more
information, see the "General Cleaning" section.
Before removing or replacing coil elements and burner bowls,
make sure they are cool and the control knobs are in the Off
position.
To Remove:
1. Push in the edge of coil element toward the receptacle. Then
lift it just enough to clear the burner bowl.
2. Pull the coil element straight away from the receptacle.
3. Lift out the burner bowl.
To Replace:
1. Line up openings in the burner bowl with the coil element
receptacle.
2. Holding the coil element as level as possible, carefully push
coil element terminal into the receptacle.
3. When the terminal is pushed into the receptacle as far as it
will go, push down the edge of the coil element opposite the
receptacle.
