Hi, My AEG 68001 Induction Cooker shows an error code E5

Customer Question


My AEG 68001 Induction Cooker shows an error code E5 and the 2 left hand side plates are not working ('E' is lit up next to them). Is there a way of fixing this problem?

E5 indicates a power problem to the hob.


If the supply to the hob is ok it would suggest a fault with the power board inside the appliance.


The power board will be an expensive part and the part required will depend on the product number of your appliance.

This isn't the board for your appliance, as far as I know, it's an example of the likely price.


Given the cost of parts, I'd suggest checking for a fixed price parts and labour quote.


Check the supply and the connections to the hob, ensure none of the connections are broken.

If they are all ok, then the fault is within the appliance and the most likely part is the power board.


Hope this helps
