That's what I was wondering - whether it was as sensitive to an
open-circuit as to an excessively short one.
Do you know what the open-circuit concerns are? Is it one of those supplies
that just can't tolerate being unloaded?

I suspect it?s just the opposite; the fault is the same as if one removed
a ferrous pot from the cooktop for more than a handful of seconds while
running; from what I?ve observed it looks like it decides that there?s
*insufficient* current being drawn, throws the fault display and shuts down
the coil in question.
Did you try reducing the coupling, by placing a
thin sheet of glass
the cooktop and the alum. foil?
I did with no change in the results but it did lead to the obvious
follow-on; It turns out that for a 10? Al-Clad pan I can distance it from
the surface by about 8mm before it decides to tell me to sod off.
