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
Figure).
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the
cookware. Only flat-bottom 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.
Cooktop Appearance
Cooktop radiant areas that heat
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.
NO
TE
NOTE
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off, even at the HI
setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic glass cooktop. Cycling at the HI
setting is normal and can also occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or
if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12 for using correct cookware instructions
with the cooktop).
Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care
& Cleaning section and Solutions to Common Problems section of this Use and Care
Guide.

Your appliance is equipped with radiant surface burners with 4
different wattage ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and in
larger volumes increases as the element wattage increases.
The radiant surface elements are located on the cooktop as
follows (See Figure):
- 2 smaller 6 inch radiant elements located at the right and left
rear positions;
- 2 dual 6 or 9 inch radiant elements located at the right and
left front positions;
- 2 7 inch radiant elements located at both the center front
and rear position;
- one Bridge radiant element located between center front and
rear elements.
SURFACE COOKING SETTINGS
Use the chart to determine the correct setting for the kind of food you are preparing. The
Simmer settings are used to simmer and keep larger quantities of foods warm such as

OPERATING THE BRIDGE SURFACE RADIANT ELEMENT
The cooktop is equipped with a “Bridge” surface element located at the center front and
middle positions. The Bridge can be used when cooking with rectangular (like a griddle) or
oval shaped cookware. 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.
Bridge element operation symbols are located on the Bridge element control knob. These
symbols indicate the direction to turn the control knob when operating the Bridge element.
The symbol indicates that only the single portion of the Bridge element will heat (see
Figues 1 and 2). The symbol indicates that both the single and Bridge portions of the
element will heat together (see Figures 3 and 4). You may switch from either of these
settings at any time during cooking with the Bridge element.
To Operate the Bridge Surface Element:
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface element.
2. Push in and turn the control knob counterclockwise (see Figure
2) to heat the portion of the Bridge element for normal shaped
cookware or clockwise (see Figure 4) for larger or rectangular
shaped cookware.
3. Turn the knob to adjust the setting if needed. Start most
Figure 1
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
Figure 3
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. Note: The Surface
Indicator light will come on when the control knob is turned on
and will continue to glow until the glass cooktop has cooled
down to a moderate level. The light may remain on even though
Figure 5
the controls are turned OFF.
The BRIDGE element may also be used in combination with the
center rear single element (see Figure 5). Because these element have 2 different controls,
one element can be used to cook while the other element may be used to keep food warm.
HOT SURFACE INDICATOR LIGHTS
This model have indicator lights located on the ceramic glass cooktop that glows as soon as
the glass begins to warm up. When heating units is turned off, it will continue to glow as long
as the glass remains warm enough to cause burns.

14 General Care & Cleaning
COOKTOP CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended Cleaning Creme to the
ceramic surface. A sample of that cleaning creme is supplied with your appliance and it is
available in store. Clean and buff with a paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled
from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help
prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause
metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed
immediately after the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning
cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future
use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can
mark or scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or
glass across the cooktop. Do not use your cooktop as a cutting board or
work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the cooktop
surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the glass
cooktop, they may cause it to crack.

CA
UTION
CAUTION
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use scrub pad.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop
surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop surface) may occur if not removed
immediately. After turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal
spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as illustrated on previous page).
Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal
and some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making
it more difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia
or oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can
leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause
discoloration.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals.
Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If allowed to boil
dry, not only will the utensil be destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic
glass surface,permanently damaging the cooktop surface.

16 Solutions to Common Problems
IMPOR
TANT
IMPORT
Before calling for service, review this list. It may save you both time and expense. This
list includes common experiences that are not the result of defective workmanship or
material in your cooktop.
ENTIRE COOKTOP DOES NOT OPERATE
• House fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped. Check/reset breaker or replace
fuse. If the problem is a circuit overload, have this situation corrected by a qualified
electrician.
• Service wiring not complete. Contact installation agent or dealer.
• Power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call local electric company.
SURFACE ELEMENT DOES NOT HEAT
• No power to appliance. Check/reset breaker or replace fuse. If the problem is a circuit
overload, or improper connection of the armored cable supplied with the appliance,
have this situation corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Too low heat setting. Turn control to a slightly higher setting until element comes on.
• Incorrect control is on. Be sure to use correct control for the element to be used.
SURFACE ELEMENT TOO HOT OR NOT HOT ENOUGH
• Incorrect control setting. Raise or lower setting until proper amount of heat is
obtained. Dial markings are an indicator of relative heat settings and will vary slightly.
• Lightweight or warped pans being used. Use only flat, evenly balanced, medium or
heavyweight cookware.
• Voltage is incorrect. Be sure appliance is properly connected to the specified power
source.
• Use only flat bottom, evenly balanced, medium or heavyweight cookware. Pans having
a flat bottom heat better than warped pans. Cookware material affects heating. Heavy
and medium weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods
may burn easily.
Solutions to Common Problems
FOOD NOT HEATING EVENLY
• Improper cookware. Select flat-bottomed cookware of a proper size to fit element.
• Incorrect control setting. Raise or lower setting until proper amount of heat is
obtained.
SCRATCHES OR ABRASIONS ON CERAMIC GLASS
COOKTOP SURFACE
• Coarse particles (such as salt or sand) are between cooktop and utensil. Be sure
cooktop surface and bottom of utensils are clean before use. Small scratches do not
affect cooking and will become less visible with use.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for glass ceramic cooktop have been used. See
Ceramic-Glass Cooktop section in this Owner's Guide.
• Cookware with rough bottom has been used. Use flat-bottomed, smooth utensils. See
Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils in this Owner's Guide.
METAL MARKS ON CERAMIC GLASS COOKTOP SURFACE
• Sliding or scraping of metal utensils on cooktop surface. Do not slide metal utensils on
cooktop surface. Use a mildly abrasive cleanser to remove marks.
BROWN STREAKS AND SPECKS ON CERAMIC GLASS
COOKTOP SURFACE
• Boilovers have cooked onto surface. Use razor blade scraper to remove soil. See
instructions under General Care & Cleaning.
• Cleaning materials not recommended for ceramic-glass cooktop have been used. Use
recommended cleaners and cleaning method. See Ceramic-Glass Cooktop section in
this Owner's Guide.
17
18 Solutions to Common Problems
AREAS OF DISCOLORATION ON CERAMIC GLASS
COOKTOP SURFACE
• Mineral deposits from water and food. Wet surface with water and sprinkle on a
cooktop cleaning creme. Scrub with a clean damp paper towel until the stain
