The cooktop has 2 or 3 SINGLE radiant surface elements:
the left rear position (Figures 1, 2 & 3), the right rear
position (Figures 1 and 2), and the right front position
(Figures 1 and 3). The left rear element may also be used
with the Bridge element (Model C only - Figure 3).

2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction to the desired setting (Figure 4). Start most

control knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
