About
the Ceramic
G_ass Cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass, The design of the ceramic
cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath,
Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the
_,
element outline on the cooktop (See Fig, 1),
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the
cookware, Only fiat-bottom cookware should be used, The type
and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use
and their settings, are all factors that will affect the amount of
heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements, The
areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to
cause burns.
About
the Radiant
Surface
E_ements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly, As the temperature
rises, the element will glow red, To maintain the selected setting, the
element will cycle on and off, The heating element retains enough heat to
provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle, For efficient
cooking, turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete,
This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process,
Locations
of the Radiant
Surface
E_ements
and Controls
Your range is equipped with radiant surface elements with different wattage
ratings, The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as
the element wattage increases,
The radiant surface elements are located on the cooktop as follows:
Model A (See Fig. 1):
- Two dual 5 or 7 inch radiant element at the right and left rear position;
- Two duaJ 6 or 9 inch radiant element at the right and left front position;
Model B (see Fig. 1):
- Two 6 inch radiant elements at the right rear and left front positions;
- A 8 inch radiant element at the left rear position;

Model D shown Only - Fig. 2
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic
glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care &
Cleaning
section and Before You Call checklist
section of this Use and Care Guide,
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the
element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting,
This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smooth
top, Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur
if the cookware
is too small for the radiant element or
if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12
under Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils),
NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by
the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green
when the element will be turned off, This phenomenon
is normal and the glass will come back to its original
white color after it has completely cooled down (White
glass cooktops only),
Model C (see Fig. 1):
- Two 6 inch radiant elements at the right and left rear positions;
- A dual 9/12
inch radiant element at the right front position;
- A 9 inch radiant element located at the left front position,
Model D (See Figs. 1 and 2):
- Two 6 inch radiant elements at the right and left rear positions;
- A dual 9/12

- A Warmer Zone radiant element located between the right and
left rear positions,
