Hot Surface Light
Your
ceramic
glass
range
is equipped
with
a red
Hot Surface
Light
that
will turn
on to indicate
that
the
cooking
surface
is hot,
It will
remain
on until
the
area
has
cooled.
Heat Retention
Whenever
a
cooking
area
is
turned
on,
heat
is
transferred
through
the
cooktop
to the
utensil.
If
the
utensil
is in proper
contact
with
the
cooking
area,
it
will
readily
absorb
heat.
The
area
surrounding
the element
will
remain
cool.
We suggest
that
you
start
with
a lower
heat
setting
then
gradually
increase
the setting
until
you
find
the optimum
setting.
Boilovers
are
more
likely
to
occur
if you
start
out
on
High
then
reduce
to a
lower
setting.
Do not wait
for liquid
to come
to a full
boil
before
reducing
the
temperature.
If food
is
cooking
too fast
or ifboilovers
occur,
remove
the lid
or
tare
the
utensil
off
the
cooking
area.
Allow
enough
time
for the
cooking
area
to adjust
to the
new
setting,
then
replace
the
utensil.
The
ceramic
cooking
area
retains
heat
for a period
of time
after
the
element
has
been
turned
off, Put
this
residual
heat
to good
use.
Turn
the element
off
a few minutes
before
the food is completely
cooked
and
use
the retained
heat
to complete
the cooking.
After
30 minutes,
the
cooking
surface
may
be too
cool
to keep
foods
warm.
However,
the
top
may
still
be too warm
to touch.
When
the Hot Surface
Light
turns
off,
the
top
will
be
cool
enough
to
touch.
CANADIAN
RANGES:
A
ceramic
glass
cooktop
will
not
operate
during
a self-clean
cycle.
This
is normal.
