Repairs to the electrical components

Repairs by unauthorized personnel
could cause personal injury or
damage the cooktop.
Some minor problems can be resolved
as follows:
What if . . .
...you notice a slight odor when
using the cooktop for the first time?
This is normal. The residual moisture in
the internal insulation is drying out. The
odor should disappear after one or two
...a burner will not turn on?
Check to see if the cooktop has been
"locked" (see "Locking a burner").
^ Make sure the cooktop is connected
to the main power supply and that
the circuit breaker has not tripped.
...a burner shuts off during use and
"H" flashes in the display?
If a burner has been on for an extended
period of time, it will automatically shut
itself off and flash an "H" in the display.
This time will range from 1 to 10 hours
depending on the setting selected.
To reset the burner:
Select "0" first, then select the desired
cooking setting.
An "H" flashing in the display after the
burner has been manually shut off is
normal. This is the residual heat
indicator telling you that the burner is
still hot.
...food does not cook satisfactorily
when using the automatic pre-heat
^ Check that the cooking setting is
correct for the pans being used and
the items being cooked.
If the pots have poor or slow heat
transfer qualities, they will take longer
to reach cooking temperature than
the burners. In this case, the pots
should be allowed to heat up before
placing the food in them, or a higher
cooking setting should be chosen.
