Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am APPLIANCE-HVAC GURU a very experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.

Please allow time for me to respond, sometimes I get the questions or responses late so please be patient as I have no control over the site issues. NOTE, I have nothing to do with your payment to the site and did not receive that money.

Lastly the only way to credit me "APPLIANCE-HVAC GURU" is to STAR RATE my post......NOT another TECHS when we are finished otherwise I will receive no credit.....Thank you!

Does anything power up on the unit at all or indicate there is power to the unit?

We can proceed here. It's a brand new stove and we've followed the instructions to the T and cannot get the burner to come on at all. Thoughts?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

OK are you certain the power is connected to the unit correctly and have you tested your voltage to the unit just to be certain with a volt meter?

It beeps when we turn one of the burners on and you can move it to high or low using the +/- buttons, but the burner doesn't turn on and it just beeps after a few seconds and turns off.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok do you have a pan on the burner?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the pan fits the burner meaning it's not too big or small.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

and it is an induction pan correct?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's a regular pan, not specifically induction. The manual says we can use anything from a sauté pan to a iron skillet, etc.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Any ideas?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Never heard back from you so I'm assuming that's a no?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Sorry for the delay I had a server issue, No it has to be something with cast iron in it or the burner will not recognize it and will not work...I am back so just post back here sorry again

It could be or have you checked the thermister for the oven maybe that is out of range possibly?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, none of that seems to be the problem. At this point, sounds like we need someone to come out here. Thanks for at least speaking with me about it.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

No problem if you have a cast iron pan or try that on them just to be sure, other than that yes maybe it is a defective unit.

We tried every kind of pot or pan imagineable. They are all standard pans. The darn thing just won't turn on!
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes I would say the unit is defective, I would return it verse having it repaired since it is brand new. Now you can try this make sure the child lock is not on and do this procedure

Press and hold the ALL OFF pad for 3 seconds, then immediately press and hold the Timer Select pad for 3 seconds to enter Custom Settings. Those two pads must be pressed within 30 seconds. Any other pad will cancel the mode.

2. “C - -” appears on the display. To navigate through the Custom Settings, use the up "^" or down "v" pads. If up "^" is selected, the display cycle starts at “C01”. When you see C01 or get it to C01 continue to step 3

3. To activate a new Custom Setting, the user will touch and hold the Timer Select pad for 3 seconds the red light should go on and ding.

4. Press and Hold the ALL OFF pad button down for 3 seconds to save and exit

Then try it
