Genuine Toshiba owner's manual. Couldn't really ask for more. And written in understandable English in contrast to a few recent experiences I have had with manuals for other equipment other than Toshiba but made in China and written in "Chinglish"!
Text excerpt from page 11 (click to view)
The four display fields correspond to the four cooking zones, and give the following indications: â â-â, when switched on, and when switched off automatically by the safety function, â â0.â, when a cooking zone is selected, â âvâ, when the Keep Warm setting is selected, â â1.â to â9.â, depending on the selected Cook setting, â âAâ ,when Automatic Warm Up is on, â âHâ, when Residual Heat is on, â âFâ, if there is a fault.
1 Cooking Zone Safety Cut-out
If one of the cooking zones is not switched off after a certain time or if the heat setting is not changed, the corresponding cooking zone switches itself off automatically. h appears in the ring display for all rings that are switched on, and j after they have cooled down. The rings are switched off at: â¢ Heat setting 1-2 after 6 hours â¢ Heat setting 3-4 after 5 hours â¢ Heat setting 5 after 4 hours â¢ Heat setting 6-9 after 1.5 hours
If one or more cooking zones switch off before the times indicated see section âWhat to do if â¦â.
Cancelling the Safety Cut-out
To cancel the activated safety cut-out the appliance must be switched off and then on again using the ON/OFF n sensor field. After this the cooking zones are again ready for use.
Switching Off for Other Reasons
Liquid that boils over onto the control panel causes all cooking zones to switch off immediately. If you place a wet cloth on the control panel it has the same effect. In both cases the appliance has to be switched on again using the mains switch n after removing the liquid or cloth.
