Setting Surface Controls
To Operate the Bridge Element (some models):
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the Bridge surface
2. Push in and turn the control knob counterclockwise (See
Figs. 1 & 2) to heat the portion of the Bridge element for
normal shaped cookware or clockwise (See Figs. 3 & 4) for
larger or rectangular shaped 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. Please note that not all cookware
will fit the Bridge element correctly.
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface control
knob to OFF before removing the cookware. The HE
message will appear in the display 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
The BRIDGE element may also be used in combination with the
left rear single element. Because these elements have 2
different controls, one element can be used to cook while the
other element may be used to keep food warm (See Fig. 5).
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.
