How to set controls for a dual, triple, or bridge element

Is only part of the dual or triple element working?

Please see your Use and Care Guide for specific information on your model, touch control models offer many different control options.  If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.

The dual-size and triple-size elements (on some models) offer flexibility depending on the size of the cookware. Single size can be used in the same way as a regular element. The dual and triple sizes combine single, dual and outer element and are recommended for larger cookware, large quantities of food, and home canning.
