About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop

The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements
located below the surface of the glass. The design of the
ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element
underneath. Make sure the diameter of the pan matches
the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop.
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to
the cookware. Only fl at-bottom cookware should be used.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings, are all factors that will
affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond
the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements
may become hot enough to cause burns.

About the Radiant Surface Elements

The element temperature rises gradually and evenly.
As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To
maintain the selected setting, the element will cycle on
and off. The heating element retains enough heat to
provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.
For energy effi cient cooking, turn off the element several
minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual
heat to complete the cooking process.
Locations of the Radiant Surface Elements
and Controls
Your cooktop is equipped with radiant surface burners with
different wattage ratings. The ability to heat food quicker
and in larger volumes increases as the element wattage
increases.
The radiant surface elements are located on the 30"
cooktop as follows (See Figure 1):
• Two 7 inch radiant elements located at the left front and
rear position;
• One mid-position radiant element located between left
front and rear elements. Connects with front element to
form Bridge element.
• One 7 or 5 inch dual radiant element located at the right
rear position;
• One 9 inch Quick Boil radiant element located at the
right front position.
The radiant surface elements are located on the 36"
cooktop as follows (See Figure 2):
• One dual 5 or 7 inch radiant element located at the left
rear position;
• One 9 inch Quick Boil radiant element located at the
left front position;
• One small 6 inch radiant element located at the right
rear position;
• And one 12/9/6 inch triple radiant element located at
the right front position.

NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic
glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care & Cleaning
section and Before You Call checklist section of this
Use and Care Guide.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows
the element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting.
This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic cooktop.
Cycling at the HI setting is normal and will mostly occur
if the cookware is too small for the radiant element
or if the cookware bottom is not fl at (For information
concerning cookware, refer to use proper cookware on
page 6 of this Use and Care Guide)
