Magnetic gradeI have a SCHOTT Ceran glass ceramic cooktop as well, and soon realized that induction cooktops like this require that your metal cookware be in contact with the surface for them to heat up. Best cookware:

  • Cast iron pans
  • Any black metal pans
  • Stainless steel pans, if base is magnetic grade (magnet sticks to bottom)

I suggest you study the instruction manual and maybe contact the manufacturer in case there is a reset method.

It shouldn't be overlooked that a power outage is often accompanied by a power surge or a voltage transient or spike capable of damaging sensitive electronics, in other words computers!
Almost everything is a computer these days, which is why every home should have major appliances provided with surge protection and some area protection. Half a dozen surge protectors around the home protecting major appliances will provide a degree of "herd" protection to some of those items without direct protection.

SMEG SE435X-1 60CM Electric hob. Keeps tripping fuse

It's possible that one of the burners stay on for a long time, which cause one of the wires to overheat, breaking the connection and touching the body of the unit, please turn the breaker off and check for a loose connection, replace the wiring if you feel confortable doing it yourself or contact a technician.

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

Cooktop light stays on when cool

the "hot top" indicator lamp is switched by a contact on the plate cut-out. sometimes this cut-out is available as a separate part but often must fit complete plate. by plate i mean the bit that gets hot!
