Gaggenau 200 Series?


If it is similar to the VE260 model, this induction type of cook top is very old. 22 - 23 years if it came with the home when it was built.
I can only offer basic suggestions of which you already probably know.
These induction type cook tops rely on the pan or skillet to be magnetic like stainless steel. If the bottom of the pan has any buildup of residue, this will dramatically reduce the efficiency of the unit.
If the pans are immaculate, then the electronic elements that produce the magnetic induction to heat the coils must be weak. As old as the unit is, it is probably not feasible to have 3 of the elements repaired....
A new top can be purchased much cheaper. Consult Consumers Reports for unbiased product reviews for your best reviews. As a final suggestion, find someone who is qualified to use an electrical multimeter to read the current on both sides of the power receptacle to ensure that your voltage is 230V. A loose connection on the receptacle can cause the elements to have the same result.
Although I can imagine you have already done everything above, I just wanted to send you what I can offer.

I have a Chef Ceran Cooktop Model EHC64oU with four elements. The problem is that it doesn't seem to cook anything on a low heat. It stays on low for a few minutes and then the the temperature increases...


I am assuming having looked up the model that you have a glass top range. These ranges use a thermostat to regulate cooking temperature, and when they go bad you will either suffer from erratic cooking temperature or have no heat at all. The best solution I can think of is to replace that thermostat.

Solid element cooking top slow in heating up


It sounds like you have lost 1 leg of 220V power to the unit. Chances are, one of the elements shorted to ground, then blew itself open.

Find the breaker or fuse box, and reset/replace breakers/fuse. If it blows again, you'll have to locate which element is bad, or where the short is.

I can help more once I know if there was a breaker trip, or fuse was blown. I will also need to know if it is one element, or all the elements., that exhibit the same problem. I can instruct you on identifying the bad element as well, and replacement elements are available.

Jenn-Air surface cooking elements look rusty and ugly


they make a special cleaner - polish just for the "solid" type burners. it looks like shoe polish and will make the burners look like new again. not sure where you can find it online but go to your local appliance parts houseand they will know what it is your needing.
