Operational cooktop sounds
Is there a low humming? This occurs when cooking at high
power. The cause of this is the amount of energy that is
transmitted from the appliance to the cookware. This sound
will quiet or go away when the power is turned down.
Is there a crackling? This sound occurs when cookware is
used that consists of different materials. The noise is caused
by vibrations in the joint faces between the different layers. It
may change depending on the amount and type of food
being cooked.
Is there a fan noise? The electronics require a controlled
temperature in order to function reliably. The cooktop is fitted
with a fan that runs at various speeds according to the
temperature detected. The fan may also continue to run even
after the cooktop has been switched off, if the temperature it
detects is too high.
If you need replacement parts
If you need to order replacement parts, we recommend that you
use only factory specified parts. These factory specified parts will
fit right and work right because they are made with the same
precision used to build every new KITCHENAID
To locate factory specified parts in your area, call us or your
