Electric cooktop
Hide thumbs



Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
The electronic touch controls offer a variety of heat settings for
optimal cooking results. When you are melting foods such as
chocolate or butter, or when proofing bread, the surface cooking
area can be set to Power Level 1 for minimal element operation.
For maximum element operation, all cooktop touch controls can
be set to High when bringing liquids to a fast and rapid boil.
Touch Power Level 9 to immediately reach the highest setting.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damaging the cooktop, do not place any
object over the controls. If something is placed over the controls,
a gentle "beep" will sound as a reminder to promptly remove it.
After 20 seconds, an "F1E0" error code will display. This is the
control board locking itself to avoid damage from an object
placed upon it. To use the cooktop again, disconnect from power
or reset the circuit breaker. See "Cooktop is displaying F1E0
code" in the "Troubleshooting" section.
Be sure to lock the cooktop using the Control Lock option (see
the "Control Lock" section) when cleaning around the controls. If
the cooktop is not locked, and an "F1E0" error code appears,
reset the circuit breaker.
