Hi, I have a nine year old Creda Hob EC6005 with touch control. The touch control has been responding very slowly and now I think has stopped responding at all. Is this repairable.?
Hello Alan, my name is George..

Can you tell me; since you state that the touch control is now totally unresponsive, is the control locked.. can you see a key symbol on the controls?

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

there is a light on the lock button, last time I tried it (last night) it took a few minutes to unlock and then I couldn't get any thing else to work.

Try this for me, then come back and let me know what happens:

Switch the hob off at the mains switch for 10-15mins and then switch it back on and try the lock again

Sorry for the delay in replying, had to go home first to turn off hob.

Switching off and leaving for 10 minutes did the job, everything working ok now.

Thanks for your help
