I have a older Bosch Ceran cook top, not induction. In the middle of cooking it just stopped working. Main power seems to be on but the top has no life. I have no manual for further checking. Is it posible there is an internal fuse of some sort?

On some of these hobs there is a thermal fuse.
Is this a halogen hob? ie it glows bright orange immediately?
Can you repost the model number and put the letter A directly in front of it, so it looks like

I do not believe the number is XXXXX but it is what is visible on top. But I can tell you it is a simple unit, only 4 burners, and about 8 years old.


Yes, the burners glow quickly.

Hi Joe

Did you not try to post the model number in your first post?
I was asking you to repost it for me

Without the model number there isn't much I can do

The number I gave was, using your A



Hi Joe
Sometimes the site crosses out numbers as it thinks it may be a phone number so wont post it for your privacy.

Unfortunately that number is XXXXX from the glass top. This is the number of the glass made by Scott Ceran.

If this was made by Bosch the model number should start with a couple of letters.

However, to be able to try and diagnose this, you will need to disconnect the power to the hob and extract it from the worktop.
You should then be able to remove the retaining strips that hold the glass in place.

You will need a multimeter to test the continuity.

If you prefer I can get you a fixed price repair for this. I just need your postcode
