Setting Surface Controls
To Operate the Dual Element(s):
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface
2. Push in and turn the control knob counterclockwise (See
Fig. 2) for smaller cookware or clockwise (See Fig. 5) for
larger cookware.
3. Use the ESEC digital display window for the desired
setting. Turn (do not push) the knob to adjust the setting if
needed. 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.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. Note: The HE
message will appear after turning the control knob to OFF
if the cooktop is still hot and will remain on until the radiant
heating surface area has cooled sufficiently. Note: See
page 8, Fig. 5 for recommended control settings.
The Dual Radiant Elements (all models)
The cooktop is equipped with one or more dual radiant surface
elements. Symbols on the control panel (See Fig. 4) are used
to indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The
symbol shown in Fig. 1 indicates that only the inner coil will
heat. The symbol shown in Fig. 4 indicates that both inner and
outer coils will heat . You may switch from either coil setting at
any time during cooking.
The Bridge Radiant Element (some models)
Some ceramic cooktops are equipped with a “BRIDGE”
surface element located at the left front and middle (See
Fig. 10) positions. The Bridge can be used when cooking
with rectangular (like a griddle) or oval shaped cookware
(Fig. 10). The element will maintain an even temperature
setting across both portions of the Bridge. If needed for
normal cookware, the Bridge element can work like a
single element without the Bridge (See Fig. 8).
Bridge element operation symbols are located on the
control panel on each side of the Bridge element control
knob. These symbols indicate the direction to turn the
control knob when operating the Bridge element. The
symbol in Fig. 7 indicates that only the single portion of
the Bridge element will heat (See Fig. 8). The symbol in
Fig. 9 indicates that both the single and Bridge portions
of the element will heat together (Fig. 10). You may
switch from either of these settings at any time during
cooking with the Bridge element.
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.
