PROBLEM WITH HOTPLATES SWICTHING OFF

Hello

We've just had a new SMEG ceramic hob fitted by a reputable kitchen fitter. We think there's a major fault with the product as the hotplates keep switching off automatically, even when the its in use. They seem to stay off for much longer periods than they are on and we can't see how it can effectively cook anything.

Before we contact the fitter, is it because we are possibly doing something wrong or is it usual for ceramic hobs to act in this way (we've only used a gas cooker before this).

You're advice would be grateful appreciated.

Sometimes this happens if the pan bottom is not completly flat or is highly polished. Darker, flat pans work best. It sounds as if the safety is cutting off the burner.

Flame leaking under lower ring. Common?


no it is a problem with the hob

consider this

as it is a rental property it is the responsibility of the land lord to get a gas fitter in to fix / replace the problem

If you do not ask him to fix it , if there is a problem and the thing explodes, catches fire or gases some one to death, there is every possibility that he will try to blame you for not reporting it

if he refuses to fix it or tries to fix it himself then I would advise that you seek alternative rental accommodation as the problem is for an accredited gas fitter and not a landlord.

Hello,
Take a closer look at the wiring diagram on the base or in the book.Check you have put in the relevant links.If not wired properly you may only get half the hob working.

Safety lock on Neff hob


I have a Neff T4344N0/08. I cannot stop all four hobs flashing - ie: I press the 'on' button all four flash, I then choose which one I want to use plus the number but they all keep flashing instead of stopping after the usual three or four. Please help - have I pressed something I shouldn't, perhaps a child lock?

Zanussi Ceramic hob ZKT641H front/main left zone does not heat up


can't give you much guidence - will be either regulator or the plate itself. no easy way to find out. you will have to remove the hob top and check for continuity thro the plate. ifplate is ok, then power up and check for supply to the plate. if no supply, then the regulator will be at fault
