Operating the Single Surface Radiant Elements

The 36" cooktop has a single radiant surface element located at center rear (Fig. 1)
element position.
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 using
the ESEC digital display window to verify (Fig. 2). Turn the knob to adjust the setting
as needed.
3.
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 cookware. Note: The surface "Element On" indicator lights will glow when one or
more elements are turned on. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking
is finished is an easy check to be sure all surface elements are turned off. Also, the
HE message will appear in the display after turning the control knob to OFF if the cooktop
is still hot and remain on until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.
