JA: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?
Customer: No. Why would that work?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: In the message on the information page "Jon" suggests turning off the circuit for ten minutes. Is that the recommendaed time?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

You should be able to just press and hold the on/off (control lock) button for 10 seconds to turn the unit on so that you can use the cooktop again. If that doesn't work and you tried to recycle the power, the touch control panel has failed and would need to be replaced unfortunately.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
