hi my hob went off when i put something on the touch on/off switch and when i tried to switch it on again it displays a flashing padlock and won't switch on
There's a few variations on this.

If it has a padlock button (press pad) press and hold it till it unlocks.

If not, press and hold the power button till it unlocks.

Let me know what happens.

If still locked, I'll need the E-Nr number from the label on the underside of the hob.
