Operating the Dual Surface Radiant
Element
The cooktop is equipped with a dual radiant surface
element located at the right rear (See Figures 1 & 2)
position. Symbols around the knob are used to indicate
which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The o
symbol indicates that only the inner coil will heat (Fig. 5).
The ® symbol indicates that both inner and outer coils
will heat (Fig. 6). You may switch from either coil setting
at any time during cooking.
To Operate the Dual Surface Element
1.
Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface
element.
2.
Push in and turn the control knob as shown in Figure 3
for smaller cookware or in Figure 4 for larger cookware.
3.
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 for the surface heating area.
4.
When cooking has completed,
turn the surface
control knob to OFF before removing
the
cookware.
The surface "Element
On" indicator lights will glow
when one or more elements are turned on. A quick
glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished
is an easy check to be sure all surface elements are
turned off.
