Performance Boost Flashing - Power Level Changes - Induction Cooktop

Possible Solution

Are more than one zones set to "Performance Boost"? 

The Performance Boost function will operate only one cooking area in a cooktop zone. If both areas in a cooktop zone are set for Performance Boost, the area set last will continue at the Performance Boost power level and the other cooking area will reset to a lower power level.

It is also possible that the function will switch the surface cooking area to a lower setting to keep the cooktop from overheating. You can continue to use the cooktop if the display is not flashing.

Are the correct pans being used?

  • Check that the saucepan is electromagnetic. Check that the diameter of the saucepan is large enough. Center the saucepan on the surface cooking area. Allow the saucepan to cool down in the event that it has become hot when used. Switch the surface cooking area OFF, then ON again. 
  • If the correct type and size of the pan is not placed on the chosen cooking area, “U” and the power level chosen will flash in the control display of the cooking area until a pan is detected or the cooking area is turned off.
    • Maximum 1/2" overlapping of pots or pans 

         

  • Oversized pans may decrease performance. Minimum diameter of pot/pan base for the different cooking areas is given in below images:

Are there any items on the cooktop?

Check to ensure water or cooking utensils are not placed on the glass above the control unit.  Move utensils and clean the cooktop surface.
