I have a Zanussi hob (model ZKT836LX, product number XXXXXXXXXXX .

This answer was rated:

I have a Zanussi hob (model ZKT836LX, product number XXXXXXXXXXX . The large double ring, front left, the outer ring comes on when the hod is switched on and can only be turned off by turning the whole hob off. Any ideas if this is the heater or the interface board that is faulty?



Can you post the product number again please as its been crossed out.


You need to prefix it with an A otherwise all I see is XXXXXXXXX.


Eg A912345678

Product number is XXXXX



Ok got it now thanks.


So when you turn the hob on the large front ring comes on on its own without you even turning it on?

Ok it wont be the element and it wont be the interface board as well.


What this will be is the main control board.

As on there are the relays and you will find one of the relays will be faulty causing this fault.


To access the board you need to remove the hob and then undo all the screws around the outside holding the glass top on and then you can remove it.


There you will see the interface board at the front. Lift this up and you will see the main control board under there.

You will need to replace this board and that will cure the fault here.


If you want the part number its(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>


If you need anymore info just get back to me.
