NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
consumer ISM equipment, pursuant to Part 18 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and,
if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.
This device complies with part 18 of the FCC rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
If LED displays any of the following error codes, unit needs to be sent in for service: E0, E1, E2, E3, E5, E6.

Is the cooktop plugged firmly into a correct outlet?
Does the cooktop have a dedicated 20-amp line? The cooktop
needs 15 amps to operate and should be on a 20-amp dedicated
circuit. If the circuit is not 20-amps or if there are other electrical
draws on the circuit, the unit is not getting enough power.
Has the unit been dropped or handled roughly? If so, we suggest
sending it in for evaluation.
Are the buttons broken?
Was there a power shortage in the building?

There may have been a power shortage (blow out) at the facility
where the unit is being used and starving the unit of power. This
may also occur if you are not using a dedicated line.
Has another electrical appliance begun to draw from the same
circuit therefore starving the cooktop of power?
Check the fan to see if it is still running.
Are the air vents blocked? The vents can be blocked on the outside
by a wall or something similar OR on the inside by dust, grease and
food residue. The unit must have a 2” clearance for air circulation
around the sides and back. Otherwise, the internal temperature will
become too high. The unit has a Safety Shut-Off, which lasts for 1520 minutes before returning to full power. If it is necessary to leave
an empty pan on the unit, the power must be set below 300 watts.
Was the unit on cook mode for more than 2 hours but with no
settings changed?

Check if the “TEMP” button is on, which means the cooktop will
generate no more than 1100watts of power. If so, switch to COOK.
Are you using an extension cord? Any use of an extension cord over
10 feet will affect the power reaching cooktop.
It is possible that the internal coil supports may have “dropped” due
to the cooktop being mishandled or frequently moved. If this is the
case, please send in for repair.

LED displays a one or two digit number, indicating the power level (1-20)
Unit will continuously cook until: manually shut off.
In <TEMP> Function (TEMP indicator is on):
LED displays a two or three digit number, indicating cooking temperature.
(90°F to 440°F in 10°F increments)
Unit will cook until set temperature is reached and will keep warm.
When set temperature is reached, unit will stop heating. Unit starts heating
again when it senses temperature has dropped below setting.
Temperature difference: when cooking a large pot of soup or other contents,
please be advised that the temperature inside the pot will vary from point to
point. For example, the bottom section (closest to cooktop) will be a bit
hotter than the middle section. The type and quality of cookware can affect
temperature transfer.
1. Plug in power cord - unit will beep once.
2. Please use suitable cookware and add food contents.
3. Press ON/OFF button (red indicator light will illuminate) AND turn knob
clockwise away from OFF position. (COOK mode by default)

Safety feature: if no cookware is placed, unit will shut off after 2 minutes.
To avoid temperature jump, please cook at least 1 quart of food/content.
Actual temperature (in TEMP mode) may vary slightly due to different
variables, such as: surrounding temperature, food content and volume, and
if using a lid, etc.
When using cookware that is not flat or with an uneven bottom, the set
temperature will be VERY different from the actual temperature.
Do not place one cooktop on top of another while plugged into power
