Be sure to follow the following recommendations for
using cookware as shown:
• Cookware not centered
on Cooking Zone surface.
• Curved or warped pan
bottoms or sides.
• Pan does not meet the
minimum size required for
the Cooking Zone used.
• Pan bottom rests on cook-
top trim or does not rest
completely on the cook-
• Heavy handle tilts pan.
ANY one of the incorrect conditions listed above in Fig. 1
may be detected by the sensors located below the ceramic
cooktop surface. If the cookware does not meet any of
these conditions, one or more of the Cooking Zones will
not heat indicated by a flashing power level in the digital
display for that affected zone. Correct the problems before
attempting to reactivate the cooktop.
• Cookware centered
correctly on Cooking
• Flat pan bottom & straight
• Pan size meets or exceeds
the recommended minimum
size for the Cooking Zone.
• Pan rests completely on
the Cooktop surface.
• Pan is properly balanced.
BEFORE USING THE COOKTOP
Minimum Pan Size Requirements
Pan bottoms should not extend more than ½" (13mm)
beyond outer Cooking Zone (Induction).
The Cooking Zones available on the Induction Cooktop
require a MINIMUM pan size to be used at each location
(Figs. 2 & 3).
The outer tips of each cooking zone cross-hair is helpful
to determine the pan MAXIMUM size. After centering the
cookware on the cooktop, make sure the cookware does
not extend more than 1/2" beyond the thicker line on the
Cooking Zone. The pan must make FULL contact on the
glass surface without the bottom of the pan touching the
metal cooktop trims.
If a pan made of the correct material is centered
properly on any of the active Cooking Zones but is TOO
SMALL, the affected Cooking Zone display will flash the
power level and the pan will not heat.
