Bosch ceramic hob,PKE6...E flashes a single bar (bottom segment

This answer was rated:

Bosch ceramic hob,PKE6...E flashes a single bar (bottom segment of the power setting number) ie _ for all for rings, the hob fails to operate while this flashing is occurring. Occasionally the flashing stops and the hob works properly. I have turned it off overnight and when I switch it on again it will flash very very fast, then gradually slow down during the course of the day. Any ideas gratefully received

Hi George
The full number is *****
Unfortunately Ray, the problem you have is a failure of one of the boards...

This has confirmedd by Bosch; the problem is that the Control Module and Touch Control Set part no# ***** has lost its callibration. This issue is classified as a fatal error that cannot be rectified I am informed.

I am sorry to be the one having to give you this sort of news.

The only cure for the issue is a replacement of that board..

Please rate the assistance I have given you & feel free to ask for further advice if you need it.

That is not what I was hoping for......Would you have any idea of cost for replacement of the board?

Below is a link to the part on the Bosch site.. the part costs £162.56

Before you purchase anything.. Have a word with the Bosch customer Service line to see if they can offer you a reduction on the part, or a reduction on a replacement appliance; their telephone number is *****
