Question about Cooktops
Have just fitted new hotpoint touch control ceramic hob. it came on briefly for a second and has not worked since. have tried re-wiring but nothing has worked.
SOURCE: Only 2 hobs work
this is almost certainly a wiring issue at the mains connection block, there are links which have not been tightened down. there is usually a diagram adjacent to mains block telling you what to do. connection block is covered by a plate. take plate off and tighten all terminals making sure links have been inserted. switch of at mains of course

If the KEY lock is on (key botton flashes when switched on) ... touch AND HOLD the lock symbol for AT LEAST TWO seconds until it beeps, then hold the on/off button for AT LEAST 2 SECS.
If the CHILD lock is on ([L] on all displays when switched on), then:
1)Hold the on switch for TWO secs min (unit swtiches on) ...then
2) touch AND HOLD the + AND - for AT LEAST 2 secs
3) touch the - button once again.

SOURCE: Stoves 700CTH hob
Hi, this worked for me as well on a 900CTH. Has to be a design fault judging by the number of people with the same problem.
No idea what this capacitor does but a guess would be that it is the reset circuit for the processor. This is normally a simple CR circuit which holds the reset pin down so the processor resets on power up. Only in this case their design does not hold the pin down long enough hence increasing the capacitor from 220 to 1000 micro-farads increases the time constant so that the pin is held down long enough. The installed value probably works well initially but due to the heat on the hob the capacitor ages, capacitance decreases in value (a common issue with electrolytics) and low temperatures at start up exhibit lower capacitances hence the fault is, as reported, worse in cold conditions. So my additional advice would be to pick a replacement with a high temperature rating.
