Water on cooktop leaked into control panel

I hope some late night folks are out there and can help me. I'd really like to go to sleep. Had a pot boil over (a lot) and the water leaked into the front of the cooktop underneath the control panel. Now, the stupid thing won't stop beeping. How do I flip open the control panel (which has the burner controls and the touch pad for the oven, etc.) to dry it out. Barring that, any suggestions for drying this out? Agh!

Re: Water on cooktop leaked into control panel

Sounds like you got water into the touchpad. If so there is no easy way to dry it out. It might dry itself out but you might up having to buy a new one.

Our induction cooktop gave us a C11 error last night and we were wondering just what that code meant. I was boiling eggs when the code appeared and the cooktop shut down.

Hello friend, I appreciate your post!

I see that your Frigidaire cooktop has displayed an error code of C11 and shut down while you were cooking. The C11 means that there could be a possible issue with your right board on your cooktop. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does not help to correct your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

GE Range flashing locked after boil over

GE Electric range with front controls. I had a pot boil over and spill over the front of the range, some water got on the membrane key panel. But I’m assuming some went behind the panel on to the control board. The LOCKED button started to flash randomly and the electric door latch was engaging and disengaging also randomly. Unplugging the unit and looking for any type of reset button did not help. The control board which is mounted behind the membrane panel got wet and was causing a short. Luckily it survived. I fixed it by removing the four stove knobs, four retaining plastic nuts that are mounted behind the knobs, and then the four (2 and 2 outer most) 1/4” bolts that hold the main panel on. I dried out the electric front door switch and the electric panel with hairdryer for 10 minutes. Plugged it back in and its all fixed. . No so good design to allow this to happen so easily so as I assembled it back together I put silicone around the membrane panel in hopes of preventing this from reoccurring.

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?

Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

Have F9 and repair man said I needed a $200 control panel. Total cost over $400 to do. Can I buy a board and replace myself?

It is not difficult to replace a control board. Just replace the plugs one at a time wire or plug for plug.

This could be a problem with the gas regulator, gas supply pressure or the burners need to be cleaned. Here are the cleaning instructions for the burners. If you are still having problems with the burners I would recommend having the gas pressure & regulator checked.

Electrolux Induction Cooktop: My husband had a pot boil over, and now the cooktop controls are giving error codes - what should we do?

Power down, then back up. You will be lucky if that fixes it though. I had the same problem here. It is in-warranty so I called Electrolux. Parts came in only after requesting them multiple times. Repairman put them in and they were bad. After a month it is still broken. I was promised a new unit, but little real action. Electrolux is a horror. No way to DIY this thing, too complicated. Cut your losses and buy another brand.

Kenmore smooth top - cooking problems

Smooth tops take a little geting used to than a coil top range....Make sure you have good flat cookware. NO GLASS COOKWARE. (ie vision ware.) Once the burner is set to high, it has to heat the glass, then the pot, so it does take about 2 min loger to boil, If you want to simmer, then i suggest bringing the item to a rapid boil, and then cutting back the heat to below the 1 on the range. and adjusting from there. All smooth top glass ranges do work in this manner. Most people can adjust to the switch, but not everyone can. there really is no problem with your range. BTW i work at sears, and i am surprised that no one helped you.

Spill into oven vents

The best way to clean the inner glass is to remove the door from the oven. With the door in the broil open position (first stop) pull up for about 2 inches until the hinge brackets are released from their stops. Close the door all you can and lift the door off the hinges. Lay the door on a padded surface and remove the 4 screws on the bottom. The outside glass will now slide out of its rail and you can clean the inside. To install just reverse the process. If you take your time and observe, it's not that bad of a back.
