INDUCTION COOKING ZONES
The cooking zone sensors located below the cooktop
surface require that certain cookware conditions are met
before the induction cooking zones can operate.
The cooking zone display windows may display a pan
sensing error message. If a cooking zone was activated and
no pan or cookware is detected, the affected induction
cooking zone display window will flash with the last power
level request setting (See Fig. 1).
Be sure to check that the cookware has met all the correct
conditions listed in Fig. 2. Use this checklist as a guide to
help to correct the problem or problems before attempting
to reactivate any of the cooking zones.
It is recommended that you lower the requested power
level setting before correcting the pan sensing message.
If the problem or problems are not corrected the affected
cooking zone will automatically deactivate after 3 minutes.
The conditions that may generate a flashing error message
are also illustrated in the incorrect column in Fig. 2.
One or more incorrect cookware conditions may be
detected by sensors located below the cooking zones. If
