OPERATING THE SINGLE SURFACE RADIANT ELEMENTS
The cooktop has single radiant surface elements at 3 locations; the right, center and left
rear (Figure 1) element positions.
To Operate the Single Surface Element
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction to the
desired setting (Figure 2). Turn the knob to adjust the setting if
desired. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then
turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface element provides
a constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red surface
heating area extending beyond the bottom edge of the cookware
indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
3. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control knob to OFF
before removing the cookware. Note: The Hot Surface Indicator light
will come on when the control knob is turned on and will continue to
glow until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate level. The
light may remain on even though the controls are turned OFF.
See page 8 for recommended control settings.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. A hot surface
indicator light will come on and will continue to glow until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a
moderate level. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before the indicator light has turned off.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden
spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
