Hi, My de dietrich touch control hob has suddenly stopped working, when turned on only half of the words/figures show and will not go any further, any ideas Wendy Watts
Hi Wendy,
I am sorry to hear that.
May I have the full model of your hob?
Also how old the hob is?
Does it heat anything?
Thank you Wendy.

Hi, The model we think is DT1304JE1 and is about 6/7 years old. No does not heat as cannot turn on. After the initial turn on, only half of the figures are showing and it seems locked after that. Hope this helps.

Hi Thanks Wendy yes thats the # ***** needed!
In this case the main control board on this hob has failed and will need to be replaced.
Its a pricey part about $200.00 for the board.
Maybe a bit less depending on your exact area.
If you want o fix this and are handy with a few basic tools I can help you with this repair as well.
