Question about LG 30" Built-In Electric Induction Cooktop - Black

Wolf electric induction stovetop

I have a new four burner electric induction stovetop. A few weeks ago when cooking - the 'Hot' icon came on as expected. However we have been unable to remove it. Even when stove is not used for days - it still reads as hot. Nothing about this in the manual. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    My 30 inch wolf induction cooktop is no good at frying food. As soon as the pan gets hot the cooktoop shuts off the burner and just sautes my food. The factory is no help, they say it is operating as designed. What a piece of Sh..

We had the same problem with the Wolf induction stovetop. They came out and changed out a part and have never had that problem again. They said there was a problem on all units that came out earlier this year (2008) so if you are one of those, you should call them and have them change that out. But... I am also very frustrated about the inability to fry things on this unit. I don't fry very oftehn but it gives very unsatisfactory results, constantly shutting the heat off and then back on. Hmmm yumm.... soggy rare ahi- uncrispy chicken- anybody?? HELP!

    I also have a one year old Wolf induction cooktop that is constantly shutting down after I try to cook on high heat. Not just "hi power" but "high". I can't cook anything on high without it turning off. It comes back on in a few minutes. I have to shuttle it between burners to cook on high. Wolf says it is an intentional designed-in safety feature to protect the unit. Somebody needs to protect them from me.
    Like winochef said, it leaves your food sitting there in oil, getting soggy...

I had that happen once and it went off after a day. I'd suggest maybe turning off the breaker and wait a few minutes and turn it back on. But here's my problem for you. I got the 30" model in March, 2008. The problem I've had is that the induction units cool down and start cycling when I'm cooking something like bacon, or pork chops etc., ie. where you're trying to brown something or sear. They cycle up and down every couple of minutes, so its really annoying. They work fine if I'm boiling water for pasta or sauces, etc. Have you experienced this. I've been working with the dealer and the company and they say its a "software" problem, but they've haven't taken them off the market. I use All-Clad stainless steel pans so that's not the issue. Thanks for your comments.

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.

Wolf range cooktop


I just installed a Wolf gas cooktop and had the same problem in that all 4 burners would light just fine but the electronic igniters would not stop clicking on all four. What I found was that the electrical outlet that my gas cooktop was plugged into had the polarity reversed. I tested the outlet with a polarity testing module (you can get one at Home Depot and it checks polarity, grounding, GFI and is handy to have around, small and inexpensive). I plugged it in and the lights told me that the polarity was reversed. I reversed the wires in the outlet (exchanged the white and black wires) put the cover back on, plugged in the cook top and now it works like a champ! no more constant clicking. By the way, we had a cooktop before this one with electronic ignition and never had a problem, apparently it didn't care about the polarity.
