My miele electric cooktop will not stay on after I trip the circuit.


Without more info this is difficult to answer. I will say that all cooktop's have thermal overload switches built into them. They open the circuit until it all cools down and they then close the circuit and reset. You begin using it again and bang it opens again and no power. This means you have a short circuit or a bad overload switch. If you are tripping the circuit breaker, you likely have a short circuit, which is why it is tripping the breaker. I would not keep resetting it, if this is the case. The more you blow or open the breaker the weaker it becomes. They open to prevent an electrical fire, which you do not want.

My Miele KM342 cooktop has one burner that keeps clicking when on, regardless if the other burners are on or not. This is annoying when cooking. Can it be fixed.


Have you tried to just move the knob away from the 'Start" position. this sounds like the ignitor is still engaged. Aside from that, I'm not sure of a solution.

We are about to do a kitchen remodel on a high end kitchen and I would like to hear from an appliance repair person what barnds to gravitate towards and also to stay away from.


Hi kevinshields,

Bosch, Gaggenhau & Miele are the best. Ilve is good as well.

From my own experience I'd stay away from any cheap models and AEG (Electrolux falls into that category too) as well as Whirlpool. Parts and availability are the main issue for these models.

Hope this helps

My miele induction schott ceran is being locked, and I can not open it to cook??


Hi,

If you have an illuminated red key symbol on the cooktop, press down where the illuminated red key is, for about 5 seconds. This method works on many Schott Ceran / Miele cooktops including the KM443 listed above.

If this doesn't work, please let me know the correct model number.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

LIGHT STAYS ON FOR HOURS BUT THE TOP HAS COOLED


if its going out, its probably ok
its not a light indicating the burner is on, rather that the glass is abcove 100 degrees and still not safe to put something on
2 hours is a bit long but it depends on how fst the surface can cool of
you can test this by trying to cool it off faster with a fan ans see what happens

Miele gas cooktop flame shuts off after lighting. If I keep the button down longer to allow more gas to flow to the burner it will stay on.


I had similar problem.Solved by Miele tech by placing rice grain sized wad of paper towel inside knob so it sits slightly higher on the valve shaft.

Burners will not light or stay lit


lhs burner - problem is probably thermo-couple. this is a safety device which prevents gas escape if flame blows out. rhs burner - you do not say if it can be lit by a match. if so then it is a problem with the electrode or the wire to it chaffed thro. if can't be lit by a match, then a problem with the gas valve which is unusual not a diy fix unless you are experienced
