A couple of months ago, the buttons started to go. They are those dimpled kind - you know, just bumps if you run your fingers over them. But the bump part started cracking. So I duck taped them but the duck tape is kind of not working so well. Then, last week, I turned on the burner and it screamed at me. A horrible noise. It cooked, but it screamed so I figured it was time for a replacement.
There are a gazillion different ones on the market. I scoured. I compared. I studied. I finally found one that looked perfect and ordered it. When it came, I was delighted to find it was a bit smaller and lighter weight. I tossed the old one in the hamper I keep for Goodwill. I slapped on my sauce pan and heated up Anita's dinner and all was good.
Until this morning. I got out my small frying pan - induction approved and has worked prefectly on the old burner - and got E0. WTF? I had actualy tossed out the manual so I dug it out of the trash to discover that E0 is error code for pan not induction pan. Oh, yess, it is... I rebooted the burner and tried a couple more things and still E0.
I moved it to the counter and dug the old one out of the hamper. I turned it on - no screaming - and made a wonderful breakfast. Today, I will try some of the new masking tape that I got to recover the brasson the fireplace doors with.
Amazon can have the POS back. So so so glad I hadn't tossed out the boxes yet. It was on my list of stuff to do today.
For the record the old one is a Max Burton and the new one was a Duxtop. If/when I replace, I am going back to Max for sure.
