Hi If the inner zone is still working but not the outer zone then its going to be the heater element itself thats failed. As for the other section to work the switch will be working fine. To fix this the heater plate will need to be replaced. Now this can be replaced but its not a cheap fix. As the heater plate itself is £130 for the part only thats excluding fitting. As if you need to get an engineer in then you can add another £60 on top of that as well. So given the cost of fixing this its not that far off the price of a new one as to be honest you can actually get a new hob for about the same money. Baumatic spares went very expensive when they went bust and Hoover/Candy took over them. Sorry its not good news but if you need anymore info just get back to me. Regards
