Element
The cooktops are equipped with a DUAL radiant surface
element located at the right front cooktop position (Figures t
& 2). indicator lights on the control panel at that position are
used to indicate what portions of the dual radiant element will
heat. The INNER light indicates that only the inner element
will heat. The OUTER light indicates that both inner and outer
elements will heat together. You may switch between these
different settings at any time during cooking.

Each touch of the HI
pad will decrease or increase the power level from 9.5 through 3.0 by .5
increments. Simmer power levels between 3.0 and 1.2 will decrease or increase by .2 increments. Lo is the lowest
power level available.

Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface
element provides a constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area.
When cooking has been completed touch the (on/off'i/pad once to turn the element OFF and if no other surface element
J
is used touch the _WEj_
key pad to turn off the cooktop.
Note: The HE (hot element) message will remain ON if the cooktop is still hot and will remain ON until the heating
surface area has cooled sufficiently.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place aluminum
foil or plastic
items such as saff and pepper shakers,
spoon holders
or
plastic wrappings
on top of the range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden
spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
