Hello, Our power was down for approx 30 mins. After power returned, my KM5753 is beeping with an error FE 30. No mention of 30 in the manual, only FE99 for overheating of induction coil. Any thoughts? pj
I had this problem on a Stoves CTH900 6 ring hob .there had been a power cut and the unit came up with an error 7A or 56A, plus the hob would not work.I checked the control unit under the hob and found the capacitor C17 had failed.(small silver can with the number 220 on the top).I replaced it with a 16v 1000uF capacitor(50 pence from component store) and the hob worked fine. I know this a different make/ model to yours but i think its a generic problem with all induction hobs.if you find a competent electrician im sure he'll be able to fix it for you.by the way Stoves wanted to come out and charge £300 to fix it!

When an "F" and a number appear in the display and the cooktop beeps you have a function error code.
Touch the CONTROL LOCK pad.
Disconnect power to the cooktop and then reconnect.
If an F-code appears again, call for service.
Hello it07002 - You may try and reset the induction cook top by disconnecting the power to the unit for up to 30 seconds by flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. This often clears most false error codes. If the error code does not clear, then the unit more than likely may be experiencing an issue with the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) and/or user interface board. This is not a typical do it yourself job; please consult a professional or your manufacturer.
Hello Robert - Typically, error code E95 indicates a power voltage miscommunication to the main components of the unit. You may try and reset the induction cook top by disconnecting the power to the unit for up to 30 seconds by flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. This often clears most false error codes. If the error code does not clear, then I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further.
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...
Hi Sue -- when you switched the breaker, how long did you leave it off before switching it back on? Generally, it's a good idea to leave the breaker off (or unplug the unit) for a full 30 seconds before switching the unit back on. If you did have it off for 30 seconds and the error code came on after that point, then it may possibly be a relay isse. That will more than likely require a visit from an authorized servicer to properly diagnose the cooktop. Hopefully the 30-second test prevails and the issue is resolved. Best of luck!
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.
