Important Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USING
YOUR COOKTOP
• Know which touch pad controls each surface unit.
• Clean the appliance regularly to keep all parts free
of grease that could catch fire. Exhaust fan ventilation
hoods and grease filters should be kept clean. Do not
allow grease to accumulate on hood or filter. Greasy
deposits in the fan could catch fire. When flaming food
under the hood, turn fan on. Refer to hood
manufacturer's
instructions for cleaning.
Use Proper Pan Size. This appliance
is
equipped with one or more surface units of different sizes.
Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the
surface unit. The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the surface heating unit to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to
the surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward from Edges
of Cooktop and Should Not Extend Over Adjacent
Surface
Units. To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of
flammable
materials, and spillage due to unintentional
contact with the utensil.
• Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at a High Heat
Settings.
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective
Liners. Do not use aluminum foil to line any
part
of the appliance.
Only
use aluminum
foil
as
recommended
for baking if used as a cover placed on the
food. Any other use of protective liners or aluminum foil
may result in a risk of electric shock or fire or short circuit.
FOR GLASS
COOKTOP
ONLY
• Do Not Clean or Operate a Broken Cooktop. If cooktop
should
break,
cleaning
solutions
and spillovers
may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric
shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
Clean Cooktop
with Caution.
If a wet sponge or cloth is
used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to
avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can produce harmful
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• Do Not Place Hot Cookware on Cold Cooktop
Glass.
This could cause glass to break.
• Do not slide pans across the cooktop surface.
They
may scratch the cooktop surface.
Do not
let pans
boil
dry.
Pans that boil dry may
permanently damage the cooktop by breaking, fusing to, or
marking it. (This type of damage is not covered by your
warranty).
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to the state to cause
cancer, birth defects or other productive harm, and
requires businesses to warn customers of potential
exposure to such substances.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils. Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic,
ceramic,
earthenware,
or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range top service without breaking
due to the
sudden change in temperature.
Check the
manufacturer's
recommendations
for cooktop use.
• Ventilating
hood.
The ventilating
hood above
your
cooking surface
should be cleaned
frequently,
so the
grease from cooking vapors does not accumulate on the
hood or filter.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Element Covers. If an
element is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will
become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occur if the hot
covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the
appliance.
