The circuit breaker for out kitchenaid glass

The circuit breaker for out kitchenaid KECC507 glass cooktop (electric) keeps tripping. After reset, when turning on a knob, there is a pop & red flash under the glass near the control knobs. It is possible that liquid got under the knobs during cleaning. Where do we begin with trouble shooting? Is there hope?

Water probably did get into the switch(es). The best bet for a fast fix is to pull the knobs off and use an air can (like for blowing dust out electronics) to blow down into the holes. This will dry out any water in there and should allow you to use it again. To be extra sure, blow out the switches and leave the knobs off over night. In the morning the knobs can be replaced and the cook top should be good to use. Hope this helps!

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.

Hotpoint induction hob wont turn on


Check power supply at socket or meter box. Make sure that the circuit breaker hasn't tripped. Also, induction cooktops wont heat without induction cookware. They must be steel. Glass cookware wont work on an induction cooktop.

I read it and it's on replacing but the top comes out.
Gloves are a good idea too. Cut power at the breaker.
unless easy access to the wiring/plug.
Hope this helps you.
Have a good evening.

Breaker in panel tripped and won't turn back on


You may have a short circuit to ground fault in the electric cook top. Divide and conquer. Unplug the cook top and try to reset the breaker. If the breaker resets, then you have a problem with the electric cook top. If it doesn’t, then the problem is at the electrical panel side. Either problem will require a qualified technician’s assistance. I hope this helps. Good luck.
