When I turn on my electronic hobb it doesn't seem to work,

Resolved Question:

When I turn on my electronic hobb it doesn't seem to work, it's brand new and I'm frustrated. I press the on switch and the cooker lights up, I just get the 0 and no -. Then I select the plate I'm going to use, select 8 for the level, it's then flashing for about 10 seconds and then returning to 0. I have tried with the sauce pan on and it's not working. I need to cook for my family, please help
