Normal operating noise of the cooktop

Induction technology is based on the generation of
electromagnetic fields. These allow heat to be generated
directly on the base of the cookware. Pots or pans can cause
different noises or vibrations depending on the manufacturing
method. These noises are described as follows:
Deep buzzing (as from a transformer)
This noise occurs when cooking on higher power levels. It is
due to the volume of energy transferred from the cooktop to the
cookware. The noise stops or reduces when the power level is
Low whistling
This noise occurs if the cooking container is empty. It stops
when water or food is placed in the container.
This noise occurs with cookware made of different multilayer
materials. It occurs because of vibrations at the areas at which
the different materials contact each other. The noise occurs on
the cookware and can vary according to the volume and
preparation method of the food.
Loud whistling
This noise occurs for cookware made of different multilayer
materials if they are also used on the maximum power level and
on two cooking positions at the same time. The noise stops or
reduces when the power level is reduced.
Fan noises
For correct operation of the electronic system, the cooktop
temperature must be regulated. To do this, the cooktop is
equipped with a cooling fan which is operated to reduce and
regulate the temperature of the electronic system. The fan can
also continue to run when the appliance is switched off, if the
temperature measured after switching the cooktop off is still too
The above-mentioned noises are a normal part of induction
technology and should not be considered as a defect.
