Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

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 considerably and as a result I am constantly buring food. I primarily use stainless steel cookway. It is very frustrating and I don't know why its happening.

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.

Whirlpool schott ceran induction plate doesn't get hot


magnetic gradeI have a SCHOTT Ceran glass ceramic cooktop as well, and soon realized that induction cooktops like this require that your metal cookware be in contact with the surface for them to heat up. Best cookware:
  • Cast iron pans
  • Any black metal pans
  • Stainless steel pans, if base is magnetic grade (magnet sticks to bottom)

Just purchased Ilve Ceran ceramic cooktop. Is V364X the cooktop model number?The outer are of the left front burner does not heat up


You may already be aware of this but ... If our ilve ceran cooktop is the same as yours turn the knob past the 12 setting till you feel pressure and it springs back. This is the switch to fire up the marked outer elements.

I just moved to a fully furnished apartment. How do I turn off the schott ceran cooktop. Both knobs are already pointing to zero but one of the lights is still on.


This cook top light may stay on until the heating element has cooled down,
This is a warning that the top is still hot to warn you so you do not get burnt.

My miele induction schott ceran is being locked, and I can not open it to cook??


Hi,

If you have an illuminated red key symbol on the cooktop, press down where the illuminated red key is, for about 5 seconds. This method works on many Schott Ceran / Miele cooktops including the KM443 listed above.

If this doesn't work, please let me know the correct model number.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

The left top element is not working, the control knob lights up but doesn't heat. Is it the element or the switch? Mod#JED8430BDB Ser#1414040011A Schott Ceran


It could be either. The only way to properly check is by dismantling the cooktop and checking the circuit with a volt meter or test lamps.
