You have a short to ground somewhere.

Was there a new cord installed on it or did the cord come already installed?

It could have been wired wrong causing a short to ground. there could be another wire touching the cabinet, a wire pinched by the cabinet.

You may have to trace down every wire with a continuity meter to find it, but its probably fairly obviose.

I'd start at the cord.

First try this, unplug the cord, turn the breaker back on just to make sure the problem is indeed in the unit not the receptacle or panel box.

If the breaker stays on, you know its in the unit.

I have broken the glass on my induction cooker


ENr is on rating plate on bottom of hob. The Ceramic top is easy to replace, it is held on by 3 pozi screws on each side (12 altogether) and just sits on the main electrical parts, obviously the unit should be isolated from main before you remove the top. Part can be ordered using the link

My soup spilled over on to my whirlpool ceran cooktop and i cant get the stains off. Is there a way to do it?


Is this a ceramic hob? If it is, you will need a ceramic hob cleaner (john lewis does one) OR Astonish oven/pan cleaner, a non-scratch washing-up sponge and a fair amount of elbow grease. This works for me.

Replacing faulty regulator for hotplate


Remove hotplate and oven control knobs. Under the 2nd and 5th knobs is an extra screw which holds on the front cover. Unscrew these and free the cover then access is gained to the screws (2 on each edge) which removes the plate to which the regulators are fixed.Remove the faulty regulator by unscrewing it from the plate,(2 screws) It is an easy job then to install the new part taking care to put the correct wires on the correct terminals. Reassemble, job done!
