The temparature control nob, which controls the temparature might have got damaged. It might be in the max. position, so there is maximum use of fuel and lot of flame. But you are unable to reduce the flame since the switch is damaged. So replacing the switch will solve the problem.
Hope I helped with the repair of your problem. An Accept from you is how I get paid. And a positive feed back tells me how I did with the repair.

How to change the lower element on a delonghi AD 699 toaster oven?


  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

  • Hope this work ..........

    Hello My gemini top burners cycle on and off,

    The burners are designed to cycle on and off, it is technology that helps to keep from burning food. If you are using the correct pan to burner size ratio and high setting on your burner, the water should boil in the normal time. Don't watch the pot (just kidding)

    The burners are too hot. Even when set to 'lo' setting food over cooks or water boils. Can the burners be calibrated to provide an actual 'lo' setting. Food cooked on 'lo' sticks to pan and liquids...

    Your range uses what is commonly refered to as infinite heat switches. Without getting into too much of the mechanics of how they opperate, basically they cycle the burner on (at full power) for a very short time at warm or lower settings,(and longer off periods), at medium type settings, on / off might be more like 50 /50, and at high, they are on 100% of the time. There is no calibration for these. Sometimes, the electrical contacts inside arch and make poor contact, or weld themselves together, giving high heat at all settings. The only way to fix this problem is to replace the individual switches, which are the part the the knobs push onto.

    The burners either don't come on or they have to be turned on HI to come on. When I turn the heat down, sometimes it turns down sometimes it doesn't. Other times I have to push on the burner to make...

    Burner stops cycling-stays red on medium

    The dial you're talking about is called an "infinite switch" and the burner only does as it is told to do by this switch. Since you'r having issues with it, I can guarantee that it's the switch that giving you grief and needs to be replaced.

    You didn't mention which burner is the problem, but there are only 2 inf. switches for this machine.

    Small Burner Large Burner
    P# 7403P238-60 P# 7403P239-60

    Easy to replace and the bonus is that which ever one you need, the cost is ~$45.00!

    All you gotta do (after you have the switch) is to pull the oven out so you can get behind it to work. If it's plugged into the wall UNPLUG IT! If it's hard wired and there is no plug, go outside to your main breaker panel and kill power to the oven.

    Now remove all the screws holding the aluminum rear control panel cover and set it aside. You'll now see all the inf. switches. DO NOT REMOVE WIRES FROM THE FAILED SWITCH JUST YET! Remove the knob from the failed switch, under there you'll see 2 screws holding it in place... remove these AFTER you have noticed which direction the "D" shaped shaft is oriented (is the flat side of the "D" at the top? the bottom? the side?)
    Now you have the old one out... still without removing the wires from the old one... install the new one with NO wires connected just yet. Now.... pull one wire at a time from the old one and place it on the EXACT terminal on the new one. Do this for each of the wires until the old one is bare and the new one is loaded with wires.

    Replace the rear panel, push it back in place and fire it up!

    Cooktop burner will be dim and red automatically

    when you set a cook top burner to high then it should stay on until the "thermal" limit shuts it off. then the burner will stop glowing. if you dont put a burner on the top, the burner sensor will shut of on the thermal safety.
    it is normal but what you need to check is if you pans are flat on the bottom. a bow inwards or outwards will cause the thermal to shut the burner off. the pan needs to "draw" the heat out of the top and allow the burner to operate properly.
    most of the time the pans a warped causing the burner to cycle on the limit and then not heat as well as it could with a "flat pan"

    We have a ceramic flattop stove. Is there a heat element to prevent pot from scorching or burning food?

    just takes practice and using smallest burner appropriate to pan. also should use medium weight FLAT pans. put a straight edge on bottom of pan before using or buying. I have seen pans that are $200 each that I don't feel are flat enough. much of gourmet cookware is designed to work on gas tops. The surface also needs to be cleaned every time it is used. I have a 6 month old white top that still looks brand new, lot of work though.
