Operating the Bridge Surface
The cooktop is equipped with a "BRIDGE" surface
element located at the left front and middle (See Figures
1 & 2) positions. The Bridge can be used when cooking
with rectangular (like a griddle) or oval shaped cookware.
The element will maintain an even temperature
across both portions of the Bridge. If needed for normal
cookware, the Bridge element can work like a single
element without the Bridge (See Figure 5). The ® symbol
indicates that only the front potion will heat (Fig. 3). The
symbol indicates that both front and middle portions
will heat (Fig. 4). You may switch from either coil setting
at any time during cooking.
To Operate the Bridge Surface Element;
Place correctly sized cookware on the Bridge surface
Push in and turn the control knob as shown in Figure
3 to heat the front portion of the Bridge element for
normal shaped cookware or in Figure 4 for larger or
rectangular shaped cookware.
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 BRIDGE element may also be used in combination
with the left rear single element (See Figure 7). 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.

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.
