I installed a magnawave cooktop and it dispays an error code which i cant clear

Puzzling. My information says MagnaWave does not make cooktop, only therapy devices. That leaves me to guess it is an induction cooktop. But I have no brand, model, or error code supplied. Error codes are generally brand specific. Nor is it clear whether the cooktop worked before an error code emerged. The manual for the cooktop should have a troubleshooting section which lists error codes. Here are some cooktops, error codes and solutions. If yours is not one, you might repost with the missing information. Here are some common error codes and their corresponding solutions: Fisher & Paykel Induction Cooktop Error Codes: Er20, Er31, Er47, or Display Issue: Disconnect the cooker, wait for a minute, then reconnect and restart. If the error recurs, note the code and contact your Authorized Service Centre. E2 (Alternating 'E' and '2'): Indicates overheating of a cooking zone. Switch off the affected zone and allow it to cool. If the problem persists, use only the oven and contact your Authorized Service Centre. E6, E7, E9, E5: Disconnect the cooker, wait a minute, then reconnect and restart. If the issue persists, note the error code and contact your Authorized Service Centre. U400: Indicates power supply over-voltage. Verify the correct power supply voltage per the appliance rating label. Symbol Error: Indicates a malfunctioning control dial. Turn all dials to OFF, then disconnect and restart the cooker. If the error persists, contact your Authorized Service Centre. Whirlpool Induction Cooker Error Codes: C1: Input voltage is low. Increase it with a stabilizer or wait if possible. C2 / C3: Overheating within the device or surface. Allow the unit to cool down before continuing use. If it persists, seek a repair for potential sensor replacement. F0: Internal error. Wait to see if it resolves by itself; if not, contact customer support. F2: Overheated cooking area. Remove any cookware and let the area cool. F4: Re-position the cookware in the center of the cooking plate, away from the control panel. F8: The cooking process is taking too long1. Electrolux Induction Cooktop Error Codes: Quick Fix: Turn the cooktop off and unplug it for a few minutes. Plug it back in and restart the cooktop to see if the error code clears. Wolf Induction Cooktop: Sometimes, error codes can be triggered by temporary glitches in the system. Try turning off the cooktop at the power source (usually the circuit breaker) for a few minutes, then turn it back on. This can reset the electronics and clear minor errors. Samsung Induction Cooktop: An error code may appear if a button is stuck or the burners cannot detect your cookware. Most information codes and notifications on the cooktop can be resolved with a power cycle. If you have an induction cooktop, make sure you're using cookware compatible with the induction elements. Remember to consult your cooktop's user manual for specific error code detail

My Samsung induction stove is not working, it shows the code E-84, what should I do?

Some advocate replacing the PCB board. Others suggest replacing a 250V 25 amp fuse. Depending on your skills, you try to DIY it or call a technician. With a hardware query, it is best to mention a model number in order more specific guidance can be provided. That makes the following video a shot in the dark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXU5vz_61Ms https://www.doityourself.com/stry/fixing-an-induction-cooktop-with-a-blown-fuse

My defy slimline cooktop shows ER42 but I changed the capacitors, what is wrong?

The ER42 error code typically indicates an issue related to insufficient power being delivered to the ceramic element. Check Power Supply: Ensure that the cooktop is receiving adequate power. Verify that the power supply is stable and not fluctuating. Inspect the PCB (Printed Circuit Board): Since the error points to a fault on the PCB, visually inspect the control board for any signs of damage, loose connections, or burnt components. Capacitors: You mentioned that you've already changed the capacitors. While this is a good step, it's essential to ensure that the new capacitors are correctly installed with the same rating and polarity. Reset the Cooktop: Turn off the power to the cooktop completely. Disconnect it from the mains for a few minutes, then reconnect it and power it back on. Sometimes, a reset can clear minor glitches. No joy? Consider professional repair.

I have a Dacor PGM 365 5 burner cooktop. Power burner igniter continues to spark when pot is on burner. When I remove pot igniter stops sparking. Thoughts?

The only thing I can think of is the the igniter has some faulty insulation and the pot is completing the circuit, or the pot is pressing something. They do have an igniter service kit. https://www.dacorparts.com/content/DacorLookups/PGM365-1.pdf ..

Thermador CET366FS Cooktop. I need some instruction on how to replace the control module.

Thermador are top of the range appliances and they don't expect you to repair them yourself, you call for a service engineer. Service manuals are hard to come by. There is a service manual for a wall oven and the control panel may be similar. They look to have mounting clips. The buttons are proximity detectors, so not conductive. https://www.google.com/search?q=thermador+cet366fs+cooktop+service+manual+pdf They are made by Whirlpool so this might help. Wherever you got the board from should supply the instructions on the same way that Repair Clinic do. ..

On my induction hob, 2 discs on the right side stopped working at the same time, I put the pan on and it shows as if it hadn't been detected, the same pan works on the remaining 2 discs on the left

A) https://hobguide.com/induction-hob-cannot-detect-pan/ B) https://hobguide.com/induction-hob-not-working-on-one-side/ You are advised to not try to get into the electronics of the induction hob. Such is dangerous. The unit uses 3 phase electricity, something unlikely to be addressed by DIY activity if you want to be safe. Check your warranty. I assume this is not a matter of pans of the wrong material or size being deployed. This well may require a technician to sort out. The brand/model has not been identified so I cannot direct you to further resources. Your user manual surely provides a company name where you might seek some customer support.

Wiring for GE Cooktop 1960s

I have an early 1970s GE, and we keep saying when it breaks down, we will replace it, but apart from replacing elements, it just goes on and on. Unfortunately, neither of your numbers give results. There should be a plate near the power lead that has the details and some have a parts manual and wiring diagram in the rear of the console if it has one. https://www.google.com/search?q=GE+82212+cooktop https://www.google.com/search?q=GE+YT123887L+cooktop ..

Electrolux Induction Cooktop Kite C-561 3611 00 Rev B- All the lights are turned on

We aren't Electrolux, we are FixYa dot com, and you appear to have fixed it. Resetting the board would simply involve cutting the power to it. Induction cooktops are a relatively new innovation to the home markets are in general, all Induction cooktops fail due to failing electrical components. I have a 50 year career in catering, and 10 years with induction units. Even the catering quality units with a single hob that cost $1,800 fail in 18 months to 2 years. Contact Electrolux direct and ask if they can find the failed component and repair the board. https://www.google.com/search?q=%E2%80%8BContact+Electrolux ..
