Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires. Smother the fire with a pan lid, or use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-typeextinguisher.

When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat or grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.

Use Only Dry Pot holders. Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let the pot holders touch hot surface units. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth instead of a pot holder.

Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers. Buildup of pressure may cause the container to burst and result in injury.

IMPORTANT. Do not attempt to operate the cooktop during a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off the cooktop. If the cooktop is not turned off and the power resumes, the cooktop will not operate and an error message will be displayed.

Do not store items of interest to children in the cabinets above the appliance.Children climbing on the cooktop to reach items could be seriously injured.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

Know which knob 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.

Important Safety Instructions

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 element will also improve efficiency.

Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and 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. 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.

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.

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.

FOR CERAMIC-GLASSCOOKTOP 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 pan across the cooktop surface. They may scratch the cooktop surface.

Do Not Let Pans Boil Dry. This may cause permanent damage in the form of breakage, fusion, or marking that can affect the ceramic-glass cooktop. (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 reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.

Setting Surface Controls

About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop

The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop (See Figs. 1 & 2).

Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the cookware. Only flatbottom cookware should be used. The type and size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their settings are all factors that will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to cause burns.

About the Radiant Surface Elements

The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain the selected setting, the element will cycle ON and OFF. The heating element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the OFF cycle. For efficient cooking, turn OFF the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.

Setting Surface Controls

Operating the Single Surface Radiant Elements

The 36" cooktop has a single radiant surface element located at center rear (Fig. 1) element position.

To Operate the Single Surface Element

1.Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface element.

2.Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction to the desired setting using the ESEC digital display window to verify (Fig. 2). Turn the knob to adjust the setting as needed.

3.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 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. Also, theHEmessagewillappearinthedisplayafterturningthecontrolknobtoOFFifthecooktop is still hot and remain on until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.

Care & Cleaning

(Cleaning Chart)

Cleaning Various Parts of Your Cooktop

Before cleaning any part of the cooktop, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the cooktop is COOL. REMOVE SPILLOVERS AND HEAVY SOILING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. REGULAR CLEANING WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MAJOR CLEANING LATER.

Surfaces

How to Clean

Aluminum (Trim Pieces)

Use hot, soapy water and a cloth or paper towel. Dry with a clean cloth.

 

 

Painted and Plastic

Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar

Control Knobs, Body Parts,

and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth.

and Decorative Trim

Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids directly

 

on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel

 

- excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other

 

liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels - they will damage

 

the finish.

 

 

Control Panel

Wipe the control panel clean after each use. Before cleaning the control panel, turn all

 

controls to OFF and remove the control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the

 

shaft. Clean using hot, soapy water and a cloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the

 

cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water

 

in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. To replace knobs after

 

cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
