This code is usually a power supply issue

Has this only just been installed and not worked since?

This has been installed and working for 8 years. No answer from anyone yet.

Has there been a power interuption or power surge? are all the breakers set correctly?



Customer: replied 2 years ago.
All is set correctly, there was a hot pan placed on the on/off/control touch buttons, then this happened.
I have tried turning off the mains and leaving it off for 5 hrs but same error when it turns on again.
Expert:  Rob replied 2 years ago.


In that case I suspect there is a loose or corroded wire or wires, as this error is common on these hobs and it is always a power supply issue.

You will need to check the incoming supply cable is terminated correctly at the hob, at any cut off switch, and at the fuse box.

Some where there is a loose connection
