Locking a burner
Once selected, the burners can be
"locked" in order to prevent accidental
changing of the settings.
To lock the burners:
Press the "a" touch control, k, until
a dot lights up above it.
To turn the lock off:
Press the "a" touch control, k, until
the dot goes out.
Automatic shut off
If the cooktop is left "On" longer than
normal cooking generally requires, it
will turn itself off automatically. The
amount of time required, between 1
and 10 hours for this feature to activate
depends on the power setting selected.
The lower the setting, the longer it will
take to shut off. In addition, each burner
is equipped with a safety thermostat
that will shut it off if the ceramic surface
should overheat.
All burners can be shut off
simultaneously, even if the Control Lock
has been activated.
Press the main "s" touch control, l,
until the dot above it goes out.
Keep the area around the touch
controls clean at all times. Clean up
Boil overs and spills as soon as
possible. Dirt or utensils placed on
the controls may activate them.
Never place hot pots or pans over
the touch controls, as the underlying
electronics may be damaged.
When cleaning the cooktop, make
sure the cooktop is "Off", and be
careful not to accidentally turn it
