Hot Surface
Indicator Lights
The Hot Surface Indicator Lights are located next to each of the
cooktop touch controls. See "Parts and Features" section. The
Hot Surface Indicator Lights will glow as long as any surface
cooking area is too hot to touch, even after the surface cooking
area(s) is turned off.
If the cooktop is on when a power failure occurs, and if the power
failure is less than 1 hour, the Hot Surface Indicator Lights will
remain on after power is restored to the cooktop. They will remain
on until the cooktop has cooled completely.
The ALL OFF cooktop touch controls turn off all surface cooking
areas that are in use at the same time.
The LOCKED cooktop touch control prevents unintended use of
the surface cooking areas. When the cooktop is locked out, the
surface cooking areas cannot be turned on by the cooktop touch
controls.
To Lock Cooktop:
Press and hold the LOCKED keypad for
5 seconds. After 5 seconds, a light will glow red above the "ALL
OFF LOCKED" indicator, indicating that the cooktop touch
controls are in the lockout position.
To Unlock Cooktop:
Press and hold the LOCKED keypad for
5 seconds.
