Electrical wiring of Indesit hob PI 604 GB

I am a qualified electrician and managed to break a plastic switch spindle of a new hob. I have fitted a new bank of switches and the hot plates plugged in and all works except for the warning light which illuminates when the power supply is on. Without the hand book, I am not sure how this light is designed to work and assume it operates when one of the plates is switched on. The neutral connections are linked between the switches and the short 'tail' from the neon presumably is the live feed?
Please can somebody put me out of my missery?
Thank you.

    Ref; My request yesterday for a wiring diagram for the Indesit hob PI 640. Thank you for sending the users guide but to help me, I do require the wiring diagram. I need to know the wiring terminals for the warning indicator which illuminates when a plate switch is switched to the on position.
    It appears to be difficult to obtain thia information, perhaps to avoid it getting into amateur hands! Perhaps the manufacturer can help.
    I hope you can help.

Had hob for 18months no problems, now two hotplates wont work & today the child lock light is on & nothing else will work, nothing.


remove the child lock setting and the remainder will work
those hot plates that were not working may need new switches, thermostats or replacement elements
call an accredited appliance electrician to get it all working again

Just bought new electric hob to replace old one need to no how to wire it up


WHEN YOU OPEN THE TERMINAL YOU NORMALLY FIND A CIRCUIT DIAGRAM IN THERE. YOU WILL HAVE AN EARTH, NEUTRAL AND LIVE TERMINAL. IT IS NORMALLY MARKED ON THE TERMINALS. GOOD LUCK. MAKE SURE THAT YOU SWITCH OFF THE POWER TO YOUR STOVE POINT TO MAKE SURE YOU DONT SHOCK OR GET AN ELECTRICIAN TO DO IT FOR YOU. THATS THE SAFER OPTION.

Induction hob switching off


check that the hob is wired correctly underneath 1,2,3 should be linked together as live 4,5 as neutral and earth takes its place as earth,

if it is wired correctly then i m afraid the hob needs a new induction element it is all one complete unit on these hobs not seperate so your looking at £1000 + to fix it plus engineer call out charges

Indesit PI 640


i find your problem is short of desame line that why it remained lighting,try to hang the connection to that light,try to find it one by one , the principle of the lighting here is like in the rice cooker when warm the light is yellow when cook it turn to red when you going to see it ,it is one connection only.there is a thermal plate ,when it sense extreme heat it will move that to switch off ,,then when it warm its switch on. maybe there is short to thermal plate or the thermal plate not working even extreme heat it will not shrink...try to find this plate .if my solution help you to understand the problem please rate me FIXYA...
thank you in advance Stevecarr.....

Burner/Flame


Hiya .. this could be due to a number of problems...... has the burner ever worked correctly?
Is the behaviour with only one ring?
1. If not... then it could be that the pipework to the hob itself has not been recuced sufficiently enough in pipe diameter to the regulator far enough back ...
2.The regulator is faulty... in which case it can be replaced... however consider the cost of a new regulator and labour to fix it .. against the cost of a whole new hob... which should include a regulator. Is the hob still under warranty... if so use that .. but you will normally have to provide some proof it has been fitted by someone suitably qualified.
3.the regulator may never have been fitted, which is dangerous and bad practice.

Either of these scenarios... please ensure that you use a suitably qualified gas engineeer... I dont wish to be alarmist... but gas leaks and faulty gas appliances do cause unnecessary deaths...and is a silent killer.

Regards Faggly
