Question about Cooktops

New Whirlpool Cooktop Problem...Maybe.

Hello.

I just purchased a new Whirlpool Cooktop, and noticed the elements will glow and then after approx 5 seconds will turn off and then back on every 5 seconds or so. Only 3 elements act this way, the 4th small element will stay lit without turning on and off.
Is this normal for these glass cooktops or should I contact Whirlpool for service?
Thanks.
Jim Logue.

    Thanks leo2.



    We thought this must have been normal as when we place a pot on the burners it does not turn itself on and off as much, and appears to be working great.

    Thanks for the help.

Hello, i cannot turn the child lock off on my stovetop. this is a brand new problem as i do know how to normally turn the lock off.


Not sure if this is for your exact model but here is a link to an Online User's Manual for one similar:

http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/KECC508RPS_Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf

Just click on the link (underlined and highlighted text) with your mouse and a new browser window will automatically open to show you the information in the manual.

On page 7, it reads as follows:

To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the CONTROL LOCK/
ALL OFF keypad for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, CONTROL
LOCK will glow red, indicating that the cooktop touch controls
are in the lockout position.

To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the CONTROL LOCK/
ALL OFF keypad for 5 seconds.

If you have any questions or require further assistance just comment back to this page and I will endeavour to help.

Good luck and please click on the 4 Thumbs Up rating icon if this was at all helpful.

Thank you very much.

Joe.
