How do I access the cable connection point of my gas cooktop cir60xs3. The lead is too short to reach the power outlet. Hence, I need to replace this with a longer lead.


buy an appliance extension cord and use that .or have an electrician come tp put an outlet close to your appliance .

Miele Fault Code FE 30


I have the same FE 30 problem on my KM5733 Induction cooktop whenever it's circuit breaker/isolation switch (in my house's fuse box) has been turned off and then on again. I have turned in back on after waiting a day or longer (figuring it needed to reset itself?) and the results have been hit and miss and I have had no idea why it would work sometimes and not others. Needless to say, I've trolled the net looking for answers and Miele online support is useless (unless you're ok with shelling out loads of cash to have a technician come by) and I still haven't heard back from them after lodging an enquiry.
What I have discovered from this and other forums is that these units do not like being attached to a power source which has a voltage significantly above the amount stipulated in its specifications (for my unit it's 230 Volts). After reading this I used a voltage meter to measure the voltage in one of the power outlets in my house (I have a really cheap meter I'd bought a while ago at an electronics retailer). Sure enough it was above 260 Volts which is totally beyond the range it's supposed to be for where I'm living.
The thing is, I know the unit works just fine provided it has been turned on and it doesn't get the initial FE 30 error (it's almost like you have to get past an initial voltage check and then once it's going everything is ok). If the voltage is at an "acceptable" (whatever that may be) level when it's turned on, it will turn on and then stay on even if the voltage goes up afterwards (which it obviously has done during the time from when it was last switched on until recently).
How did I get it to work this time? well I thought of ways to reduce the voltage to the unit and came across all sorts of stuff on the net including powerbox voltage reducers, optimisers, blah, blah... I thought this is total rubbish and I'm going to ring the power company and complain about the voltage being so high when it's not supposed to be. I then thought back to my old high school physics days and remembered that there's a relationship between voltage, current and resistance. I then thought the voltage to the induction cooktop (as well as to all the other power outlets/circuits in the house) is likely to drop if I plug in and turned on a lot of high resistance electrical appliances.
Sure enough, when I turned on the kettle, toaster, clothes dryer, computers, televisions, electric oil heaters, lights and dishwasher, the voltage in the power outlet I'd been measuring went down from 260 to 235 volts.
I then turned on the power to the induction top back on and it turned on and with no FE 30 error!
I boiled some water to make sure everything was working ok (it was) and then I turned off the induction top and all of the other devices I'd switched on.
Still no FE 30 error! Great.
I double checked the unit by turning it back on and boiling water again and it did it with no problems. I then turned the unit off and measured the voltage in the power outlet again and sure enough it was back at 260 Volts. Hurray!
I'm now going to ring the power company and make a complaint...

We havent purchaced this cooktop yet but are putting in electrical outlets do we need a 110 outlet for this model?


It would be a good idea to plan for an outlet for the cooktop. most do use 120 volts for the spark device. Locate it behind or below the cooktop so it will not be confused with your countertop outlets.

Please Vote !!

No spark sound...no spark. When I turn the knobs the gas comes on but there is no ignition.


change the spark module at the back...check power 120v at the outlet prior to service...just to be on the safe side

I have a four wire on a 20 Amp service. I need 110 outlet.


4 wire recepticals are used for 220 Volt appliances, there should be 2 hot (117V to ground) and one each Grounding and grounded (read neutral) conductors) Breaker or disconnect should be 2 pole for 220 Volt circuit. A 20 Amp 110/117 Volt circuit would have a single pole breaker or disconnect, one "hot" conductor(should be black or colored , not green or white), one neutral conductor (should be white or neutral with white stripe) and an equipment grounding conductor (should be green or bare copper). It sounds to me like your receptical was wired for 220 V using whatever colored wires were handy. Back up to breaker or fuse (disconnect), and shut off circuit. New 117 Volt outlet will be wired with Black to Brass colored screw (short slot on face), One White wire will be used for Neutral conductor (make sure you know which one it is at the breaker panel) and one of the other white wires may (but shouldent be) used for ground (use green marker to identify it at each end),The third white wire should be removed if you can, otherwise cap with wire nut at each end and coil up in back of boxes. At the breaker/ fuse panel, the Black wire is connected to the breaker (It will be your "hot" lead), The white being used for the Neutral is connected to the neutral buss bar with the other Neutrals, and the green goes to the grounding buss bar (should have other green or bare copper wires. Once all is properly connected and secured but without the disposal plugged in, turn on the power and check for leaking smoke (smoke here is a bad thing) The fuse or breaker should protect your wires and help keep that smoke inside the boxes. Check voltages at the new plug, 117 V accross Short and longer slot, 117 from short to ground (round) and 0 or close to it from long (Neutral) to ground. If voltages check, plug in the new appliance and test.
If in doubt about what you have, dont hesitate to contact an electrician, they get paid for their knowledge and experiance and their ability to keep that nasty smoke inside the boxes.
Good Luck.,

GE Monogram ZGU48N6D- None of the Ignitors "click"


We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.

Try looking at the junction box that it is connected to. Maybe one or more of the wires have burned off or come loose from the wire nuts. How many amps is the breaker? Most electric codes require separate circuits (Breakers) for each appliance. First turn off the breaker. There should be an outlet box of some kind on the wall or behind the cabinet. Follow the wire from the cooktop and see where it goes. Open it up and check if any wires are burnt or loose. If it was installed wrong I would change it. Most cooktops shouldn't be fused at more than 30 amps. Single ovens the same, double ovens up to 45 amps. The problem is if they used an old range outlet with 6 gauge wire and tried to connect both appliances to the same wire. This is hard to do without it coming loose.

Jgp963 shorting out


What do you mean you 'placed container on all five knobs'?

Apart from that it sounds like you have a faulty lead, or the contacts inside the unit have short circuited. This is the only thing that could be causing a continuous circuit and tripping the fuse.

Dacor SGM304... no ignition


There is no fuses, as long as you have a power supply into unit then the only item that can cause this fault is a faulty spark generator.the hob will need to be dismatled to repair, remove the knobs, remove the burners and then remove the obvious screws, top will lift off Regards Advisor
