Single radiant surface
The cooktop has 2 or 3 SINGLE radiant surface elements:
the left rear position, the right rear position. The left rear
element may also be used with the Bridge element.
Control knob shown is typical only
Do not allow aluminum foil, empty glass/porcelain
cookware or any material that can melt to make contact
with the ceramic cooktop. If these items melt on the
cooktop they may damage the ceramic cooktop.
To Operate the Single Radiant Surface Elements:
Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface
Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction to the desired setting (See Table 8). 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 completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. HE (Hot Element)
message (Models B & C) or the hot surface indicator light
(Model A) will turn on and will continue to glow until the
glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate level. The
glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the
glass surface is touched before the indicator light has
turned OFF. The message may remain on even though
the controls are turned OFF.

The surface "Element On" indicator lights will glow when
one or more elements are turned on. A quick glance at
these indicator lights when cooking is finished is an easy
check to be sure all surface elements are turned off.
Do not place plastic items such as salt 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.
