Question about Viking 31 in. VGSU101 Gas Cooktop
I have a DECU 165-5BSB electric cooktop. When I turn the cooktops heating elements on they will get hot and then turn off--and then get hot agian. Also, when they get hot and I decide to turn it down to a lower setting the heating element will kick off. Is it suppose to do this? The heating elements should stay red hot continuosly correct? What is the problem? Thanks.
No they are made to cycle that way they are halagen and cycle with a sensor dont work like the old coil ones do enegey efficent and hotter than old coils dont use them without a pan on them to reflect heat back to the sensor to prolong their life
