Q:

Crack on cooktop, beeping and flashing E 79042800502 Kenmore Elite Electric cooktop

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your Kenmore Elite cooktop model 79042800502. I am so sorry there is a crack in the cooktop. I understand wanting to continue using this unit minus the burner closest to the crack. I strongly recommend against that. 

Once the cooktop has cracked, it is no longer safe to use. The crack has weakened the top and over time the crack will spread. It is possible the glass can shatter during use. That can be very dangerous, especially if you have pans full of food that are at very high temperatures.  In this case you should replace the part or replace the cooktop. I have included a couple of links for you. The first one is for you to price the part. The second is for you to view new units. This should help you decide if you want to repair the cooktop or replace it.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the controls will not unlock by touching and holding the "Lock" icon for 5 seconds are longer, then it you will need to call and have a service technician properly diagnose and repair your cook top.  It could have a faulty main touch control or main control board. I strongly suggest calling for service and have a service technician properly diagnose and repair your cook top. Electrical parts cannot be returned if installed and it continues to fail to unlock.

You can have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.

A:

The PF error is letting you know the control board in the cooktop lost power at some time.

To answer your other questions you need to read the owners manual. This is an induction cooktop that cooks and heats very different than a conventional electric cooktop.

You can go to www.managemylife.com and get an owners manual free. I recommend you read the owners manual before operating the cooktop.
