Power Cycling on Induction Cooktop


  • When using the Induction Cooktop at a high temperature or for long periods of time the power turns off but eventually comes back on.
  • Induction cooktop powers off after using on high
  • How long for power to return when the induction cooktop cycles off?
  • Why does the induction burner turn off when using on high heat?
  • Should the Induction Cooktop surface burner elements cycle on and off?
  • Induction Range turning off when frying
  • Induction shuts off when frying or cooking


The induction cooktop will cut back on power to protect the generator from overheating on high settings.

  • When it gets too hot, it reduces the heat.
  • After approximately 2 minutes, the unit will come back on full power; however, this time will vary based on the volume/mass of food in the pot or pan.
  • The thermister that regulates the heat is in the middle of each burner element.
