elements
(all models)
To operate
the single radiant element:
1.
Place correctly sized cookware on single radiant surface
element.
2.
Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction (Fig. 2) to the desired setting (Refer to the
Suggested radiant surface element
settings
table Fig. 1). Start most cooking operations on a
higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish
cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be
set exactly on a particular spot. Use the graphics
provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as
needed (See Fig. 2). 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.
3.
When cooking is complete, turn the radiant surface
element OFF before removing the cookware.

Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may
still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place flammable
items such as plastic salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the range when it is in use. These items could melt
or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could
catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
Do not allowaluminum
foil, orANY material
that can
melt to ma ke contact with the ceramic glass cooktop,
If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the
ceramiccooktop.
The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and
type of food being cooked will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results.
The on indicator light will glow when one or more
elements are turned ON. A quick glance at this indicator
light when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure
all control knobs are turned OFF. The hot surface
indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control
knob is turned to the "OFF" position and will glow until
the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.
