What does Er22 mean on a Siemens induction hob

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
JamesInch :

Hi, can you please advise the model number of your Siemens Induction Hob?

JamesInch :

Generally an Er2 means there is an internal error, but the specific error depends on the model, is that something you can help me with

Customer: EH875SB11E/05 FD9001 00799
JamesInch :

excellent give me a few minutes

Customer: EH875SB11E/05. fD9001 00799
Customer: It is not ER2 it is ER22
JamesInch :

Yes the first number identifies first part of fault the second number the specific item

JamesInch :

Its looking like a control board fault

Customer: Does this require an engineer
JamesInch :

Most likly, have you tried the good old turn it off for a minute at the isoluation switch and then back on?

Customer: Yes but will try again
JamesInch :

That normally clears the fault if due to 'overheating' or 'missuse', but ER2x numbers are generally hardware faults so will occure again again.

Customer: Have switched off but still there
JamesInch :

Im just looking through the engineer manual, to double check its not a sensor

JamesInch :


JamesInch :

Right...the fault is the sensor you use to control the hob

JamesInch :

It doesnt say which one but it says its one of the "buttons"

JamesInch :

From what I can work out its the power button

JamesInch :

Which is the second one from the right.

JamesInch :

So this is going to be an egineer job unfortunatly, if there is nothing else could please rate the level of service you have received today so I may close the case.
Sorry I was unable to get your hob working again, but rest assured the fault is reasonable easy to get a quote to fix now you have a diagnosis
