How to Troubleshoot a Summit Induction Cooktop

The Summit Induction Cooktop contains magnetic coils beneath its glass ceramic surface. When the cooktop is turned on, these coils send a magnetic current through the pot or pan placed on the cooking surface. This current heats up the cookware and the food it contains. Induction cooking is very efficient; however, there are a few tips you can use to troubleshoot your Summit Induction Cooktop should you find you are having problems with it.
