Bridge element operation symbols are located on the control
panel on each side of the Bridge element control knob. These
symbols indicate the direction to turn the control knob when
operating the Bridge element. The symbol in Figure 1 indicates
that onlythe single portion of the Bridge element will heat (Figure
3). The symbol in Figure 4 indicates that both the single and
Bridge portions of the element will heat together (Figure 6). You
may switch from either of these settings at any time during
cooking with the Bridge element.

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. Please note that not all cookware will fit the Bridge element correctly.

When cooking has completed, turn the surface control knob to OFF before removing the
cookware. Note: The Surface Indicator light will come on when the control knob will be turn
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.
The BRIDGE element may also be used in combination with the left rear single element. Because
these elements have 2 different controls, one element can be used to cook while the other element
may be used to keep food warm (See Figure 7).

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.
