The Summit Induction Cooktop has made with a magnet coil under the flat ceramic surface. When this cooktop of turned on, magnet current is sent through these coils through the pan or pot in the form of an electrical field. The food and cookware are heated by the current. These are the things that make induction cooking unique and energy efficient. Although, just like any other cooktop, you might experience problems with your induction cooktop. In case something is wrong with the cooktop, it will show an error code on the display panel. The following tips will assist you in troubleshooting these error codes in case you experience some problems with it. You will need a fuse(s) and a magnet.
The Summit Induction Cooktop will show **E0** error code in case you turn it on without putting a cookware on the top of it. This error will also be shown when a pot or pan that isn’t compatible (non-inductive) has been used. Remember that induction cooktop requires one to use magnetic cookware that are flat-bottomed which are made of iron, nickel, or stainless steel. They won’t work with cookware that are made of non-magnet materials such as ceramic, glass, copper, and aluminum. In case you are not sure of the compatibility of the cookware, test it by placing a magnet on its bottom surface. In case the magnet sticks, it will be supported by the cooktop.
The cooktop will show **E1** error code on the display panel in case there is an overheating on its internal components. Blockage of the ventilation slots of the cooktop is among the common cause of internal overheating. Consider clearing away the things that might be blocking the ventilation slots and give it some time to cool before giving another trial. In case this error comes back again, it might be an indication of a failure in the monitoring circuit of the internal temperature. In such a situation, the problem can’t be repaired by the user.
The **E2** error code will be displayed on the display panel in case there is some overheating on the induction burner. In most cases, it happens when you try to heat empty cookware. It is a requirement by the induction cooktop that the cookware contains liquid or solid foodstuff, which will absorb the heat that has been generated by the burner. Turn off the cooktop and give it about ten minutes to cool and then try again.
The **E3** will be displayed on the cooktop in case the supply voltage isn’t correct. For example, E3 code might be displayed when the voltage is too low, something that can happen when your local electric grid is overloaded. When the voltage exceeds 240 volts, the error code will also be displayed. Consider checking your house box fuse to find whether the fuse is blown, voltage fluctuation, or tripped circuit breakers. You should replace any fuses that are blown or reset the tripped circuit breakers where necessary. Let the cooktop cool for about ten minutes and resume cooking.
