Dual Surface
(all models)
The cooktop is equipped with 1 or 2 dual radiant surface
elements located at the left front and the right front or the
right rear position. Symbols around the knob are used to
indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The
symbol with the center circle blackened indicates that only
the inner coil will heat (See Figure 9). The symbol with both
coils blackened indicates that both inner and outer coils will
heat (See Figure 9). You may switch from either coil setting
at any time during cooking.

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.
To Operate the Dual Surface Element:

operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower

edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too
small for the surface heating area.
