Some models have an indicator light for each heating
unit, other models have an indicator light for each pair of
heating units, also some other models have an indicator
light for all heating units.
The indicator light glows as soon as a heating unit is
turned on. Check if the indicator light glows when the
control knob of the individual heating unit is turned on.
If the knob is set to a very low temperature setting, the
indicator may glow and yet, the heating unit may not be
heating at all. If this happens, turn the knob to a higher
setting until the heating unit comes on.
When cooking is finished, a quick glance at the indicator
lights in an easy check to be sure all the control knobs
have been turned OFF.
Hot surface indicator light
(ceramic glass cooktop models only)
Some models have an indicator light located on the
ceramic glass cooktop that glows as soon as the glass
begins to warm up. When the heating unit is turned
off, it will continue to glow as long as the glass remains
warm enough to cause burns. Other models have a hot
surface indicators per element arranged in a cluster. Their
location is as shown in the illustration.

operating the dual surface radiant
(Specific Ceramic Glass Cooktop
The cooktop is equipped with one or two dual radiant
surface element. Symbols around the knob are used to
indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat.
The small digits on the control knob indicate that only the
inner coil will heat (Fig. 1). The large digits on the control
knobs indicate that both inner and outer coils will heat
(Fig. 2). You may switch from either coil setting at any
time during cooking.
to operate the dual surface element
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface
2. Push in and turn the control knob as shown in Figure 1
for smaller cookware or in Figure 2 for larger cookware.
3. Turn the knob to adjust the setting if needed. 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.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface
control knob to oFF before removing the
control knobs shown are typical only.
