elements
(some models)
Symbols on the backguard are used to indicate which coil of
the dual radiant element will heat. The o symbol indicates
the inner coil only, The _ symbol indicates both inner and
outer coils will heat.
To operate
a dual radiant element:
1.
Place correctly sized cookware on dual radiant surface
element.
2.
Push in and turn the surface control knob clockwise to
begin heating both the inner and outer portions of the
dual element. If only the inner heating portion is
needed like for smaller cookware, push in and turn the
knob counter-clockwise
to start.
3.
When cooking is complete, turn the dual radiant surface
element OFF before removing the cookware.
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 mark.
Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as
needed. A glowing red surface heating area extending
beyond the bottom edge of the cookwa re indicates the
cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
You may switch from either coil setting at any time during
cooking. See Suggested

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.
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.
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.
