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.
4
• 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

Before 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 to 4).
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.
Fig. 1 - 30” Model
Cooktop Appearance
Locations of the surface radiant
elements
Your cooktop is equipped with radiant surface radiant
elements with 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 30”
cooktop as follows:
Model A
• One 12 inch radiant element located at the left front
position.
• One 7 inch radiant element located at the right rear position.
• One 6 inch radiant element located at the left rear
position.
• One dual 6 or 9 inch radiant element located at the
right front position.

• One 7 inch radiant element located at the right rear position.
• One 6 inch radiant element located at the left rear
position.
• One dual 6 or 9 inch radiant element located at the
right front position.
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.
Model B

before setting surface controls
The radiant surface elements are located on the 36”
cooktop as follows:
Model C:
• Two small 6 inch radiant element located one at the left
rear and the other one at the right rear position.
• One dual 6 or 9 inch radiant element located at the
right front position.
• One 12 inch radiant element located at the left front
position.
• One 7 inch radiant element located at center rear
position.
 NOTE
Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the
surface elements, the glass surface will turn green
when the element will be turned off. This phenomenon
is normal and the glass will come back to its original
white color after it has completely cooled down. (White
glass cooktops only).
Surface cooking settings
Use the chart to determine the correct setting for the
type of food you are preparing.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence
the setting needed for best cooking results.

Setting
Type of Cooking
HIGH (HI)
Start most foods; bring water to a boil
and pan broiling.
MEDIUM HIGH
(8-10)
Continue a rapid boil; frying, deep fat
frying.
MEDIUM (6)
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces
and gravies; steaming vegetables.
MEDIUM LOW
(2 - 4)
Keep foods cooking; poaching and
stewing.
LOW (LO)
Keep warm, melting and simmering.
 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 smooth top. Cycling at
the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware
is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware
bottom is not flat.
CAUTION
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
Model D
CAUTION
Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will
damage the ceramic cooktop.

Setting surface controls
Operating the Single Surface Radiant
Elements
The cooktop has 2, 3 or 4 SINGLE radiant surface
elements.
To Operate the Single Radiant Surface
Elements
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 (Figure 1).
3. Turn the knob to adjust the setting if desired. 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.
Operating the Dual Surface Radiant
Element
The cooktop is equipped with one or two dual radiant
surface element. Symbols around the knob are used to
indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat.
The small digits on the control knob indicate that only the
inner coil will heat (Fig. 2). The large digits on the control
knobs indicate that both inner and outer coils will heat
(Fig. 3). You may switch from either coil setting at any
time during cooking.
To Operate the Dual Surface Element
1. Place correctly sized cookware on the dual surface
element.
2. Push in and turn the control knob as shown in Figure 2
for smaller cookware or in Figure 3 for larger cookware.
3. Turn 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.
Control knobs shown are typical only.

Figure 2
Figure 3
 NOTE
The “Hot Surface” indicator lights will glow when the
element is turned on and will continue to glow after the
control knob is turned to the "OFF" position. It will glow
until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently.
The glass surface may still be hot and burns may
occur if the glass surface is touched before the indicator
light has turned OFF. The message may remain on even
though the controls are turned OFF.
 NOTE
See Recommended Setting for Surface Element table on
page 6.

SURFACE COOKING
Selecting Surface Cooking Cookware
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the entire surface heating element. Check
for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware (See Figure 1).
Cookware Material types
The cookware material determines how evenly and
quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to
the pan bottom. The most popular materials available
are:
ALUMINUM - Excellent heat conductor. Some types
of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum
cookware resists staining & pitting). If aluminum pans
slide across the ceramic glass cooktop, they may leave
metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove
these marks immediately.
COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.
May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum
above).
Figure 1
Be sure to follow the recommendations for using
cookware as shown in Figure 2.
CORRECT
• Flat bottom and straight
sides.
INCORRECT
• Curved and warped pan
bottoms.
• Tight fitting lids.
• Weight of handle does
not tilt pan. Pan is well
balanced.
• Pan sizes match the
amount of food to be
prepared and the size
of the surface element.
• Made of material that
conducts heat well.
• Pan overhangs unit by
more than one-half inch.
• Pan is smaller than the
element.
• Easy to clean.
• Heavy handle tilts the
pan.
• Always match pot
diameter to element
surface diameter.
Figure 2
 NOTE
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results.
8
STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven
cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists
staining.
CAST IRON - A poor heat conductor however will retain
heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
PORCELAIN-ENAMEL on METAL - Heating
characteristics will vary depending on base material.
Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid
scratching ceramic cooktops.
GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for
ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the
glass.
Care & cleaning
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 cleanings now will reduce the difficulty and extent
of a major cleaning later.
Surfaces
How to Clean
Painted and Plastic
Body Parts
For general cleaning, use hot soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and
built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30
to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners
on any of these materials; they can scratch or dull the finish.
Stainless Steel
Decorative Trim Cooktop, Control
Knobs, 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. Do not use
cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not use
harsh scrubbing cleaners. 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. Only use kitchen cleaners
that are especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the
cleaners from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be
removed. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob
and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning &
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 CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to the
ceramic surface. Clean and buff with a non abrasive cloth
or pad. 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, or they may crack it.

Care & cleaning
Cleaning Recommendations for the
Ceramic Glass Cooktop
CAUTION
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
WARNING
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop.
The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly
to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch pad to clean the
entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned
thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly
to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a nonabrasive plastic type no-scratch pad, applying pressure
as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the
cooktop for any other purpose.
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). 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 Special
Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum
Cooking Utensils
IMPORTANT
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you
use an abrasive type scratch pad. Only use cleaning
products that have been specifically designed for
ceramic glass cooktop.
If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor
blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the
surface. Remove loosened soils, then apply a few drops
of cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
• Aluminum foil
•
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not
use under any circumstances.
Aluminum utensils
Since the melting point of aluminum is much lower
than that of other metals, care must be taken when
aluminum pots or pans are used. Pans that boil dry
may permanently damage cooktop by breaking, fusing
to, or marking it.
Care and Cleaning of Stainless Steel
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior
parts. Special care and cleaning are required for
maintaining the appearance of stainless parts. Refer
to the General Care & Cleaning table for detailed
cleaning instructions.
