The hob is about 5 years old. As far as I'm aware there were no power outages or storms before this started to happen.If it helps in any way I have a short video of what is happening.
Expert:  Michael replied 3 months ago.

Thank you for that information,

Please try one thing for me so I can be sure of the problem.

Please switch off the hob at the mains for 30 full minutes. Then you can turn it back on. If the processor in the main control board simply glitched as they can, this will solve the issue.

If not please let me know. And we will go from there;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!

Sincerely

Tech Michael

Hi, MichaelThe tenant at the house where the hob is located tried turning it off and then back on again. When he did this the hob died completely! Before doing this it showed the fault codes 3 and 8. It sounds maybe that I need to buy a new hob!ThanksMeirion
Expert:  Michael replied 3 months ago.

Hi Meririon,

You would need a new main control board.

But you might want to simply replace the machine at this point .Please let me know on that I'll hep if you want to replace the board?

Thanks
