Control module failure
Symptoms: any: if the control module has failed, it’s impossible to predict its behavior: for example, the stove can turn on and off arbitrarily, the indicators flash frantically, and similar madness
Of course, only a qualified technician can accurately determine that a faulty control unit is to blame. And it is definitely not worth getting into it by an untrained person: the consequences will be fatal, including possible breakdowns of other expensive components of the electric stove. Usually the control module is changed or reflashed.
On induction stove burns h
Residual heat indicator on the far burners is constantly lit. What to do?
Laboratory of repair on Electrozavodskoy 05.07.2016 01:19
Sounds like a sensor or control board error, unplug it for half an hour (if possible) if it doesn’t work contact a service center for diagnosis
Good afternoon. For added safety the hob is equipped with a residual heat indicator showing that the burners are still hot and must not be touched.
Afternoon! The problem is that the residual heat sensors of the glass ceramic burners do not work properly.
DNS Krasnodar on Kommunarov 05.07.2016 17:28
The problem is most often in the sensors and the temperature inside
Omega Service on Stavropolskaya 09.07.2016 15:51
The problem is in the heat sensors, need to be replaced
First option. Measure. Nothing critical. The second option. repair. Replacing the residual heat sensors 2-2.5 thousand.
This indicator is needed so you won’t get burned when you wash the stove. Maybe another problem in the heat sensors. 1. Unplugging the stove for 1 hour. 2. Unplug the stove for 24 hours. It doesn’t help you need to replace the sensors.
Wait until the burner cools down
Contact an authorized service center
If the burner has cooled down, the appearance of this symbol probably indicates a sensor malfunction.
We advise to call a specialist service center.
Beware! We advise not to use the product until the problem is fully resolved. Disconnect the device from the mains and do not turn it on again until you are sure that it is in working order.
As promised, prepared a post review of kitchen appliances. This is the first about the induction hob.
Not to accuse you of advertising, covered the name )))) I will tell you about the available functions and amenities. May be useful to someone choosing a cooktop. Or someone does not use these devices because he does not know how.
I want to clarify right away that arguing about what is better to cook with gas or electric equipment, in my opinion, makes no sense. As far as I know, in our country since the Soviet Union there are restrictions on gasification of houses higher than 9 floors. Therefore, there is no reason to tell the residents of modern high-rise buildings, which are grounded for electric stoves, about gas stoves. Well, a person would not buy gas cylinders and carry them to his kitchen on the 16th floor.
And vice versa. If the house is gasified, it has a higher electricity bill, and it will be more expensive to use the electric stove.
When searching for information on this topic, a question came up. And the residents of rural and equated areas, you can install an electric stove in your house, to transfer themselves to another (reduced) tariff?
I’ve cooked with different devices. Starting with a kerosene stove and a wood-burning stove.
For a very long time used a gas stove. As a combo version of the Soviet version, as well as a modern gas cooktop with piezo ignition and flame failure protection (Zigmund Shtain).
Electric stoves, of course, were also used.
For me personally, the first place in terms of convenience and safety is an induction, the second place of gas and the third place of the usual electric hob. I hope that now you all understand.
For starters, a little bit of theory. What is the difference between an ordinary electric cooktop (hereinafter “EP”) and an induction cooktop (hereinafter “IP”).
In usual EP a current, flowing through the wire of coil causes its heating and accordingly heats the coil and the metal body of burner, and as a result, the kettle, placed on it. An induction magnetic field is created in a power supply, which heats the kettle placed in this field (on the burner).
That’s why there are two important differences between an IP and an EF.
1-slow heating and cooling of the UI, vs. rapid heating and cooling of the UI. The surface of the IP burner can be touched for a short time immediately after removing the pot, without fear of getting burnt, after three to five minutes is safe to touch.
2 In the IP heats ONLY cookware and a little bit of the burner glass in contact with it. Т.е. if you put a pot with a small bottom on a burner with a larger diameter, you can safely touch the empty space with your hand it is cold. If you do the same experiment on the EP, you will get burns on your fingers.
The panel I’m talking about today has four burners. Two 180mm diameter (1800W and 2800W in P mode), one 210mm (2300W and 3700W) and one 145mm (1400W and 2500W).
The first thing I want to draw your attention to is that there are no knobs (touch control). In previous versions, I got tired of cleaning the dirt out from under them and figuring out what to replace the lost paddles/bolts holding the handles. Beautiful, clean, comfortable.
The first convenience is that the power can be increased immediately when you turn it on. Т.е. no need to press 1,2,3.9, and immediately pressing the triangle down to get the power 9. Triangle up to raise the temperature, triangle down to lower the temperature.
The P function (booster, ver, power) plugs in increased power for quick heating. To experiment, I put a pot with a liter of cold water from the faucet on the off IP and boiled water in two minutes in P “POWER-power” mode.
It’s convenient to use the A-function (automatic heating) together with the P-function. This function quickly heats a pan and then switches to the temperature you preset.
You can turn the burner off by pressing the two triangles at the same time. If you forget to turn it off, after you remove the cookware, the F (Full blank) symbol lights up and the cooktop switches off automatically after two minutes. When you put the dishes back in, it’s the same as before.
Because someone from the pikabushniki complained that it is impossible to fry pancakes on the induction burner automatically turns off after you remove the pan from it. Where do you have to walk around with a frying pan for three minutes? )))
Heating does not start with “1” but with “U”. This is to keep the food warm. Т.е. You have cooked but the guests are late so you don’t have to reheat it later put it in U mode and keep it warm. Also suitable for baby food or heating yogurt to be prepared.
In the photo, you can see that I have a separate control for each cooking zone (all controls are touch sensitive). My daughter also has an induction stove but she has a separate button to select the burner you want to control. For me, terribly uncomfortable. Pay attention to this when selecting a panel
In the same photo you can see the H symbol on the bottom right burner. This means that it has been cooked on recently and there is residual heat (H Hot Hot). The glass itself doesn’t get very hot, unlike EA burners, but safety must be at a premium.
Another interesting heating mode is STOPGO (“Turn off and go”). You have been distracted from cooking and you have four pre-holiday pots/pans on the stove. Press SG and walk away from the stove in peace. This mode switches all the burners to keep warm (U).
The icon above this function (square with a dot inside) activates the lock mode or child lock mode. Child lockout mode prevents children from accidentally activating the hob, while child lockout mode prevents you from changing settings or turning the hob off.
Demonstrating that you can safely, without fear of burning to touch the burner with boiling water in a pot. It is not only safe to the stove does not stick ))))
By consecutive pressing on the clock you select the burner. You can alternately start the timer on all four. In my photo the timer is engaged on the left two. The dot lights up. And then you adjust the time.
When the time expires, the timer will turn off the burner and beep for thirty seconds.
The simplest example is to braise the meat. All preparatory operations (frying, spices, salt, water) completed you set the timer for how long you will braise (for example 45 minutes) and quietly go about your business. Or in the morning, to avoid overcooking hard-boiled eggs, you set it for three minutes and wait for it to light.
The timer can be used in another way as a timer. So you don’t have to turn it on every time. Example I cook on two burners at the same time eggs poached, I set the timer for a known longer time (so it does not turn off, but just shows the countdown) and looking at him fix the right pan is three minutes, the left pan is three minutes, countdown and so on.
If you have a dual tariff meter, you can cook on the night tariff including a timer, and thus save money.
If you suddenly spill water from the boiling pot on the stove, no problem the stove will turn off automatically.
Wipe off the liquid and you’re ready to go.
And with this panel you will never have to go out of the house and painfully remember whether you turned off the stove or not.
Stove will turn off automatically if:
no set power after you switch it on
What Does An ‘F’ Or ‘U’ Error Mean On An Induction Hob?| AEG
control panel is flooded or anything is on it for more than 10 seconds (a cloth, a pan)
The liquid in the pan has boiled over and the appliance is getting very hot
Heating on 6-9 mode after 1.5 hours, 5 4 hours, 3-4 5 hours, U,1-2 6 hours.
That seems to be all. Lots of handy features in such a seemingly simple item. That’s why cooking on such a stove is a pleasure (and safe).
In terms of usability and safety, the IP is superior to both the gas and EV. Compared to the EA also saves energy, because it does not require time to heat the burner.
The only point is not all cookware fits to the IP, and the wok is used with a flat bottom.
I forgot to mention the dishes. I’m sure there will be questions.
The manufacturer recommends that you look for the induction icon on the pan.
But not all manufacturers put it on. Below are four of the pans I cook with at Fiszman. Only one has that badge on it.
But also the presence of the icon does not guarantee performance. Once had to return a frying pan to Fiszman, even though it had the proper sign on it.
The easiest check magnet from the fridge, if it stays on the bottom of the dish, it will work. And both the fancy ones and the most simple and inexpensive ones. You can check your cookware beforehand )

- F07. No connection with the thermosensor.
- SE (ERROR BY SENSOR FIELD SHORT). Indicates a shorted sensor field. Possibly liquid got on the stove hob. Most often the problem is solved with a dry cloth. you need to wipe the surface dry;
- ERROR BY OVERHEATING. Indicates overheating of internal panel components. Possible solution: wait for panel to cool down, then hold the ON/OFF touch button to reset the settings;
- PAN DETECTION ERROR. The system identifies the cookware in use as incorrect. Cookware may be very small in size or may not be on the hob at all;
- LE. Line Voltage Low. Try unplugging and reconnecting the appliance;
- FL. fan defect.

Hansa stove error codes
Sometimes the induction hob on the control panel can give a certain error code. What does each code mean and how to repair the malfunction tips master in our article.
Sometimes the induction hob on the control panel can give a certain error code. Some malfunctions can be repaired manually, while others require specialized intervention by the service center. We will look at common error codes of induction hobs.
Please note that the error codes are the same for all stoves, but the display can be different. For example, in Gorenije stoves the error is denoted by the letter E, while in Hansa models by the letter F. Also keep in mind that the errors considered here and their solution apply exclusively to induction stoves. The solution to the problems of conventional electric cookers can be quite different.
Electric stove error codes
Time of conventional cooking stoves is becoming a thing of the past, giving way to built-in hobs with an oven (electric stoves). This is due to the fact that electric cooktops have a huge number of advantages over the traditional kitchen stove.
The most widespread and demanded stoves among Russian stoves are Aeg, Siemens, Kaiser, Bosch, Ardo, Indesit and Ariston brands. They have a good build quality and excellent performance. But despite this, these cooking plates are not immune to all kinds of failures and errors. Let’s see the main error codes for each of abovementioned electric stoves.
Ariston|Ariston electric stove error codes
Depending on what kind of error on the sensor panel of Ariston stove the certain code of error appears, which informs its owner about what exactly is faulty:
- If stove stopped working properly and error F01 is displayed, it means that NTC sensor is out of order.
- Code F03 indicates that the key is not working.
- Error F05 indicates that the TEC circuit of the large burner probe is in short circuit.
- F06 says the same thing, only for the small burner.
Error codes of Aeg|AEG electric stoves
In contrast to Ariston electric stoves, the main error codes of Aeg stoves begin with the letter E and are decoded as follows:
- Error E1 means that the electronics have overheated;
- error E3 indicates no communication with inverter;
- error E4 indicates that it is necessary to let the burner cool down;
- Error E5 means that there is a problem with the mains. If this error occurs, it is impossible to do without the help of a specialist;
- error E6 indicates no communication with the power inverter;
- E8 there is no communication with the power unit;
- E9 configuration errors;
- E22 several buttons pressed at the same time;
In addition to these errors, Aeg electric stoves can have errors that are marked with the letters L and F. L reminds you that the childproofing is on, and F reminds you that there is no cookware or that it is unsuitable for use on this stove.
Bosch|Bosch Electric Hob Error Codes
Error codes for Bosch cooking tops are deciphered as follows;
- F2. appears on the indicator display if the hob is too hot and shuts down. To eliminate this error, wait a few minutes for the appliance to cool down;
- F4 Stove is cold and shuts down. It is necessary to check whether there is a hot pot on the control panel. If not, it means that the device is out of order, and will need the help of a master;
- F8 means that the burner is working too long. To fix this error, you need to turn off the burner for a minute, after which you can turn it on immediately;
- Error U400 indicates that the hob is connected with errors.
Siemens|Siemens electric stoves error codes
It is not uncommon for Siemens hobs to give minor malfunctions. You can eliminate them on your own, knowing the deciphering of the main error codes for electric stoves of this brand.
- 0 flashes to indicate that the safety function of the automatic shutdown is activated. To solve this problem, switch off the unit and make the settings again;
- The letter E flashes, this error code indicates moisture or foreign objects on the control panel. To solve this problem, wipe the panel with a dry cloth or remove a foreign object;
- error code F0. Indicates a malfunction of the indicator. If this error occurs, you will need the help of a specialist;
- F4 error indicating child safety interlock failure. Disconnect the device from the mains, wait thirty seconds and turn it on again.
Error codes of Kaiser electric stoves
The main, most frequently occurring errors, which can be eliminated on your own for Kaiser hobs are:
- Error code L flashes, child safety protection is on;
- ER03 is blinking, touch keys don’t work properly. This malfunction can be caused by food boiled on the hob. It is necessary to turn off the hob, and then wipe it thoroughly;
- Error code ER21 means that the unit has overheated. To eliminate this error, turn the fan off and check to see if it is running correctly; error code ER21 indicates that the unit is overheating. If after turning on the hob the code continues to be displayed, you will need the help of a master;
- Ex error code technical malfunction of the appliance. Service must be contacted;
- error codeU400. means that the panel is not connected correctly.
Error codes of Ardo Ardo hobs
Troubleshooting of Ardo electric stoves can be divided into two categories:
In the first case, various error codes appear on the control panel to indicate one or the other malfunction. The decoding of these codes can be found in the manual to the device in the relevant section.
In the second case, the burners break down. There are various possible breakdowns here. Do not try to fix it yourself, because unprofessional intervention can further aggravate the situation and increase the cost of repair. In such cases, the right solution will be to apply to a service center, and thus save time and money.
Indesit Indesit electric stoves error codes
Among the most frequent malfunctions that occur in Indesit brand electric stoves, the main ones are the following:
- The burner doesn’t turn on or malfunctions. This malfunction can occur due to a breakdown of the burner itself or the switch. You can not fix it yourself, you need the intervention of a specialist;
- Automatic shutdown at simultaneous operation of two or more cooking zones. Possibly the appliance has overheated. You need to turn it off for a short time and then turn it back on again.
- The heat indicator doesn’t go out, therefore the thermostat is defective. This fault can only be repaired by an expert.
Knowing these error codes, you can try to solve the problem yourself. But still, in order to avoid any misunderstandings, it is better to seek help from specialists. And in no case should we forget that whatever the quality of the electric stove, it requires careful care, and in the case of a breakdown, competent repair.
Error E3 signals an unstable voltage. It can be both low and high.
Solution: check the voltage during the operation of the appliance. To do this, place the cookware on the burner and turn it on for 1 minute. Then measure the phase-to-zero voltage in operating mode. To measure the voltage see the wiring diagram underneath the stove. If the voltage is normal and the stove works, then it was just a spike. If the voltage is high or low, then it is worth contacting the organization responsible for supplying electricity to your home. And if the voltage is normal, but the stove does not work, you will have to call the service center.
The last type of cookers gas surface. One of the most simple and easy to repair with your own hands. There is less electronics, so there are not many faults and they are all easy to troubleshoot.
- The gas does not ignite or ignites poorly. Immediately check the ignition (piezo) for clogs or liquids. In 90% of cases it is enough to wash and dry it thoroughly. If it did not help, check the availability of electricity in the chain to the piezo coil.
- The gas cooktop does not turn on because the gas is not coming to the burner. Hobs repair in these cases is not needed, prevention is enough. Check the gas pipe, if the tap is open and there is gas in the system, move on to check the nozzles. Clogging occurs with grease or food debris, just do the cleaning. Remember to wipe dry after cleaning, no moisture should remain. If there is moisture left, the piezo will not ignite.
Modern stoves are equipped with fault detection sensors and diagnostic modules, the error code appears on the screen. Find the code in the manual and follow the specified recommendations to fix a specific fault. Use the forums, there you can find real reviews and experience to repair with your own hands from experts and other users of your model with detailed instructions and photos.
If you analyze all the faults of hobs that can be encountered in operation, we can confidently say that most of them can be repaired with their own hands.
Induction hob can make various noises during operation, and they can occur for the following reasons:
- The appliance may buzz if you put a thin-bottomed pot on the cooktop, or if you set the power too high;
- The stove often buzzes or whistles when a small pan is placed on a large burner;
- vibrations can occur at the junction of different materials when the bottom of the pot consists of several layers;
- The intensity of the noise depends on the quantity of dishes on the hob.
If the beeper is constantly sounding, we can assume that the reason why it does not turn off, is in the control unit, which can only be repaired by replacing with a new.
