What To Do
• Use pans which are absolutely flat and match
the diameter of the surface unit selected.
• Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
• Check to see the correct control is set for the surface
unit you are using.
• Scratches are not removable. Tiny scratches will become
less visible in time as a result of cleaning.
• To avoid scratches, use the recommended cleaning
procedures. Make sure bottoms of cookware are clean
before use, and use cookware with smooth bottoms.
• See the Cleaning the glass cooktop section.
• This is normal. The surface may appear discolored
when it is hot. This is temporary and will disappear
as the glass cools.
• See the Glass surface – potential for permanent damage
section in the Cleaning the glass cooktop section.
• Call a qualified technician for replacement.
• Use only flat cookware to minimize cycling.
• The glass cooktop surface may seem hotter than you
are used to. This is normal. Use pans which are
absolutely flat.
• Clean the keypad.
• Use a flat, metallic pan that is 4.0" or larger.
• Make sure the pan is centered on the corresponding
surface unit.
