If a Display Flashes Screen_Shot_2018-01-10_at_4.24.55_PM.png Alternately with the Heat Setting

This means that:

  • you have not placed a pan on the correct cooking zone or
  • the pan you’re using is not suitable for induction cooking or
  • the pan is too small or not properly centered on the cooking zone.

No heating takes place unless there is a suitable pan on the cooking zone.
The cooktop will automatically turn off after 10 minutes if no suitable pan is placed on it.

Dual Zone Cooking (CI365DTB models only)

When using a small pot on the dual cooking zone, be sure to center it so that the inner zone will detect the pan. If the pan covers the outer zone, then the outer zone will automatically switch on.

SmartZones (CI122DTB & CI244DTB models only)

The SmartZones are large. You may place several small pots on the SmartZone and they will be detected as if they were one large pot.

The whole of the SmartZone is activated when a pot is detected. This means that other magnetizable items (such as cutlery) sitting in the cooking zone will heat up. Never leave cutlery or other magnestizable items on your cooktop.

 Locking the Controls
