KY-R644BB model: Genius Sensor ■ ■ ■ ■ Autoboil Mode Low Temperature Cooking Mode Pan Frying Mode Deep/Shallow Frying Mode ■ ■ Pan Frying Mode Deep/Shallow Frying Mode KY-R644CL model: ■ ■ Pan Frying Mode Deep/Shallow Frying Mode Energy-efficient Cooking Tips 8 ■ Always place the correct lids on pans to keep the heat in. ■ Use the correct size of pan for the amount of food you are cooking. ■ Use the right size of pan for the diameter of the cooking zone. If the diameter of the pan is not the same as the cooking zone it is preferable to use a pan with a base that is larger in diameter than the cooking zone. ■ Put just enough water in the pan to cover vegetables. This will save energy. ■ Turn down the power level of the cooking zone once the cooking temperature is reached; simmer food rather than boiling it. ■ Use a steamer to cook vegetables, so you can layer a number of vegetables on top of each other and still use one cooking zone. Alternatively, a pan with a divider can be used.

Troubleshooting ■ ■ ■ During the warranty period, any repairs may only be performed by service technicians authorised by the appliance manufacturer. Unauthorised repairs may cause electric shock and short circuit; do not attempt this yourself. Consult an authorised service technician. In case of minor faults or problems with the appliance operation, check the following instructions to see whether the causes can be eliminated. Note A visit by a service technician during the warranty period will be charged if the appliance is not functioning because of improper use. Store these instructions in a place where they are always readily accessible; if passing the appliance on to another person, the instructions should also be included. 31 Troubleshooting Check the following for some advice on rectifying some common problems before calling the service centre. Power Source Symptom Possible cause The IH cannot be turned ON. ■ The main power switch has not been turned ON. Touch the main power switch a little longer. ■ Child Lock has been activated. (See page 11). Auto switch off If 1 minute has elapsed without any operation after switching on, the main power automatically turns off. Turn on the main power switch again. The cooking zone turned itself off while in operation. Long cooking time If no key is touched for a set time (see table below) when a cooking zone is in operation, a beep will sound and the cooking zone is turned off automatically. Set the appliance again as required. It is recommended to use the cooking timer when simmering for a long period of time. (See page 24) Power Level Low Medium High 1 1. 2 2. 3 3. 4 4. 5 5. 6 6. 7 7. 8 8. 9 Auto switch off time (hours) 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Operation Panel Symptom Possible cause Key operation is disabled. ■ Your fingertips are covered. Touch with bare finger. ■ Control Panel Lock is activated. (See page 11) ■ You performed the operation while holding the cookware handle. ■ The operation panel is dirty. Turn off the main power switch and ensure the area is clean and dry. Turn on the main power switch again. Keys react when the surrounding area is touched. 32 Water or other liquids may be on or around the keys. Ensure the area is clean and dry. Troubleshooting Sounds and Noises Symptom Possible cause Noise is heard during heating. Various sounds may be heard depending on the type of cookware. You may feel a small vibration when you hold the handle and the cookware may move slightly. This is not a malfunction. Moving the cookware slightly or replacing it may eliminate the sound. If the cookware is removed during heating, a short metallic sound may be heard. The level of the noise from the appliance increases and decreases. It is the sound of the cooling fan inside the appliance. The level of noise changes according to the power level and the material of the cookware. When the power level is increased, the fan will operate at high speed and generate more noise. After the main power switch is turned off, noise from the fan is heard. While the inside of the appliance is still hot, the cooling fan operates. When the appliance cools down, it will automatically stop. Heat Power Symptom Possible cause The heating power is weaker. Overheating Prevention Function If the base of the cookware overheats, the heating power will automatically reduce. The power indication will remain the same. The power returns to normal after the cookware cools down. Unsuitable cookware, e.g. ceramic and earthenware pans, are used. Do not use ceramic and earthenware pans even if they are for induction heating as they are not efficient. (See pages 15-16) When multiple cooking zones are used together, ■ The heating power decreases. ■ The power indicator automatically decreases. ■ The power level can not be increased. The power level is automatically regulated so that overall power consumption does not exceed the limit. The power indicator for a cooking zone may decrease on its own. Even after touching the slider (KY-R644BB) or ‘+’ (KY-R644CL) to adjust power level, it may not increase the power level and the appliance will beep. (See page 14) 33 Troubleshooting Autoboil Mode Symptom Possible cause Heating time takes too long. ■ The base of the pan or top plate is dirty. ■ A lid has not been used. ■ Water was added to the pan during Autoboil mode. ■ The lid is removed or the pan is moved during Autoboil Mode. ■ Cookware with a non-stick coating may affect the sensor detection. If the water is not boiled after the beep, continue heating up as required. ■ The heating power may vary when using some stainless steel and made for induction cookware. This may affect heating times (see page 15). ■ No power - heating does not start. The top plate is too hot for Autoboil Mode. Autoboil Mode will start automatically when the top plate is cooled down. Low Temperature Cooking Mode Symptom Possible cause ■ Preheating time takes too long. ■ The pan has been moved away from Genius Sensor. ■ The base of the pan or top plate is dirty. ■ The actual ■ Water, oil, or food was added during preheating. temperature is ■ The temperature on the base of the pan may vary different from the set from the set temperature depending on the type of temperature. cookware. ■ Food is not ■ Due to the variety of food types and pans, the actual achieving set temperature of food may be different from the set temperature. temperature. ■ Cookware with a non-stick coating may affect the sensor detection. Adjust the temperature as required with slider (KY-R644BB). ■ No power - heating does not start 34 The top plate is too hot for the temperature set. Heating will start automatically when the top plate is cooled down. Troubleshooting Pan Frying Mode Symptom Possible cause ■ Preheating time takes too long. ■ The pan has been moved away from Genius Sensor. ■ The actual temperature is different from the set temperature. ■ The base of the pan or top plate is dirty. ■ Water, oil, or food was added during preheating. ■ The temperature on the base of the pan may vary from the set temperature depending on the type of cookware. Adjust the temperature as required with slider (KY-R644BB) or ‘-’ or ‘+’ (KY-R644CL). Deep/Shallow Frying Mode Symptom Possible cause ■ Preheating time takes too long. ■ The pan has been moved away from Genius Sensor. ■ The actual temperature is different from the set temperature. ■ The base of the pan or top plate is dirty. ■ More than 800 g of oil has been added. ■ Hot oil, brown-coloured oil, cloudy oil, or oil with food sediment is used. ■ The oil temperature may vary from the set temperature or the preheating time may take longer depending on the type, material, shape and size of the base of the pan. Adjust the temperature as required with slider (KY-R644BB) or ‘-’ or ‘+’ (KY-R644CL). 35 Error Codes Heating can be resumed after the causes of the following errors are eliminated. Indication Possible cause ■ There is water or objects on or around the control panel. ■ Key is held longer than required. Cookware not detected ■ No pan placed on the cooking zone. ■ The pan has been removed. ■ The pan is not placed in the centre of the cooking zone. ■ An incompatible pan is used. (See pages 1516) Small object on the cooking zone ■ Small metal objects (e.g. cutlery, utensils) are placed on the cooking zone. If the above conditions are not rectified, the display and the main power will turn off. The following errors can be cleared by pressing the key of the applicable cooking zone. The intake or exhaust vent are blocked (see page 42). Remove any blockages. 36 Error Codes Indication Possible cause Empty pan on the cooking zone ■ ■ An empty pan has been heated. When Deep/Shallow Frying, oil was preheated by selecting the power level instead of “Deep/Shallow Frying Mode”. Use Deep/Shallow Frying Mode for heating up a large amount of oil. ■ Incompatible cookware is used for Deep/ Shallow Frying Mode. (See pages 13-14) ■ The pan is not in the correct position. ■ More than 800 g of oil has been heated up. ■ Ingredients were added while preheating.
