Induction Cooktop Noise


  • Is it normal for the Induction Cooktop to make a pulsing, buzzing, or clicking noise when on low power but not on high power?
  • Induction Cooktop making loud noise when on
  • Induction Cooktop louder when burners on high settings

Steps to Verify Issue:

Induction Cooktop clicking when not in use:

  1. Induction-ready cookware stored on the cooktop when not in use may cause clicking. Remove all objects from the cooktop.
  2. Turn the home circuit breaker to the unit off for 10 seconds then back on again.
  3. Retest the unit operation.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further customer troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.


It is possible to hear a pulsing, buzzing, or clicking noise from the Induction Cooktop when used on a low-power setting and not hear the same noise when on a higher power setting.

  • This is due to the magnetic fields in use and is normal operation.
  • The clicking noise is not always heard on high due to the magnetic fields in use on the product.
  • The operational noises will also increase with power increases to burners and may be different with various pots and pans used on the cooking surface.
    • Service will not be able to stop or correct this normal, operational noise.
    • Units on display at a showroom will not make this noise, as burner operation is disabled when in a dealer showroom.

  • If noise increases significantly over time, contact service.
    • Normal operation would not cause normal noise levels to change.
    • Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
  • If unit is not heating, refer to Induction Cooktop Does Not Work.
