Top Positive Review


So far, I am very happy with the cooktop. It’s only been a day but initial impressions are very good! I will update after a few months if that changes.

One very important thing I am glad I researched, especially after reading all of the 1 star reviews is the placement of the plates under the glas. This tend to move during shipment as there are only very small notches keeping them in place. I took the top off prior to installing it to check (very easy to do) and sure enough, the big plate had moved and was not aligned. I moved it back to the small notches it should sit on, put the top back on and everything works as it should now and is aligned correctly. There are a couple youtube videos that show how to do it. Just search for the model numbers on youtube and you’ll find them.

Top Critical Review


I wanted to like this item a lot. It has four induction hobs divided into two induction transmitter zones.
The two smaller “burners” on the left side work fine and are exactly contained inside the surface indicator spots.
The medium “burner” in the lower right works fine and is exactly contained inside the surface indicator spot.
The large center “burner” is not centered on the circle. In fact it barely touches the circle due to being 5 inches or so North-East (2 oclock position) of the circle and within 1 cm of the top edge of the glass cover.
It took several uses before this uneven heating became fully apparent to me and caused me to look closely to find that the inducer plate under the glass was so far out of alignment. Being as it is so close to the edge of the range I do not believe it is wise to utilize the largest burner at all.
How this got past QC seems problematic and worries me that there might be other wiring/safety issues.

Customer Questions & Answers


We’re replacing our current induction cooktop that was wired for 40 amp. Will we be able to wire this one into the same box we unhook it from?
Answer:

You will be able to reuse the same box. Depending on the size of your previous cooktop cable you may need a new conduit connector. The 30″ cooktop only needs a 30-amp service according to the manufacture’s installation instructions. You can download the installation instructions and verify with your electrician.

Note??

What is the difference between this model and the fgic3066tb? the specs look almost identical, even on the frigidaire website.
Answer: The 3026tb is solid black. The 3066 model is part of the gallery line. It has white ish markings around the burners. If you zoom in on each you can see the difference. I love my 3026! Great cooktop for the price.

Would a cast iron griddle work on the 2 burners on the left hand side?
Answer: Haven’t tried that but I use a 10″ iron skillet on the big burner often. Don’t see why it wouldn’t work. HTH.

Is there a vent spacer to use with a Broan downdraft? I??m replacing my kenmore cooktop and it had a spacer ??gap with fins?? to draw the steam down.
Answer: ventilation system not incorporated into this cooktop. I still use my existing overhead fan system.
