Light Cleaning

  • Clean your CERAN cooktop after every use. To remove simple spills, wait for the surface to cool before beginning the cleaning process. Pour a small amount of cleaning cream on a damp paper towel and wipe the cooktop surface until the soil and cream are no longer visible. The cleaning cream will leave a protective finish, which will preclude scratches and other types of damage.
  • Heavy Cleaning
  • Wear a heavy oven mitt to remove burnt foods or liquids while the cooktop is still warm. Use the metal razor scraper to remove the substances that are stuck to the cooktop surface. Once the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel to spread a small amount of cleaning cream over the entire cooktop surface and wipe it thoroughly until the cream is no longer visible. Rinse the cooktop with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
  • Cleaning Melted Substances
  • Remove melted plastic, foil or other kitchen products immediately using the metal razor scraper. Spills containing sugar, such as ketchup, tomato sauce, syrup or pudding, must also be removed with the metal scraper at once. It is best to remove these substances while the burner is still hot. Once the melted substance has been removed and the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel and cleaning cream to complete the cleaning process. To protect your hands, remember to wear a thick oven mitt when cleaning the hot cooktop.
  • Tips
  • Scratch marks resulting from daily use will not interfere with the performance of your cooktop. Pots and pans with flat bottoms and those that cover the entire burner surface are recommended for use on your CERAN cooktop.
  • Warnings
  • Spills containing sugar may permanently damage your cooktop unless the substance is removed immediately. Use only the recommended cleaning products on your CERAN cooktop to protect it from damage. Do not use scouring pads, plastic coated sponges or abrasive products of any type. Do not use oven spray or any other type of cleaner containing ammonia or chlorine. Clean all spills thoroughly before using your cooktop again.

    Whirlpool Flat cooktop burner not heating up

    Try cleaning the knobs. I did the same thing you did (turning the circuit breaker off but that did not solve the problem.

    My wife just tried turning the knobs and that seemed to work. It appears that one of the knobs may have been so sticky that the though it's in the OFF position it thinks it's still ON.
