Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a oven/ceramic cooktop that is just over 3 years old. About 1 1/2 years ago, one of the hotplates stopped regulating temps, if it was 'on' it was 'high'. Since then, one by one, all four have contracted the same problem. When I contacted FP they suggested that the elements would need replacing. This does not make sense to me as they all work (too well) so I was thinking the limiters or a thermostat... advise would be much appreciated Susan

I need more information. What kind of controls? A knob you turn or computer touch controls? If it is a knob it is most likely the switch is bad. THese cost around $25 each. The control switch controls the heat by pulsing the element on and off . High is constantly on, lowest setting is around 5% on. This is usually an easy repair. THe switches have 4 - 6 wires. 2 marked L 1 and L2 (Usually black and Red) Two terminals marked Load 1 and Load 1 , Maybe a neutral and a pilot light terminal. Do not mix up the L1 and L2. The load terminals (going to burners) really don't matter. They may even be the same color. THe L1 & L2 terminals must be the same on all 4 switches. The switch you get as a replacement may look different from the original. As long as you ordered by model and serial # they will fit.

I haven't heard of this problem before. If you do press down and the hotplate starts to work we know that the hotplates are okay. The only thing this could be is an internal problem inside the hotplate controller, possibly with the contacts. The controllers will need replacing.

Hotplate on ceramic cooktop not working, another won't turn down.


If 1 of the plates is not working at all, then it is going to be the plate itself, or a faulty regulator, you will have to take it apart to check the plate.
The other plate that you cannot control, needs the regulator replacing.

Replacing faulty regulator for hotplate


Remove hotplate and oven control knobs. Under the 2nd and 5th knobs is an extra screw which holds on the front cover. Unscrew these and free the cover then access is gained to the screws (2 on each edge) which removes the plate to which the regulators are fixed.Remove the faulty regulator by unscrewing it from the plate,(2 screws) It is an easy job then to install the new part taking care to put the correct wires on the correct terminals. Reassemble, job done!

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?
