Customer Question

Bosch ceramic hob PKE61. When heat control knobs removed [eg for thorough cleaning of whole surface], one knob spindle is live. Advice, please !
I see I'm to pay £20 if satisfied, and this is fine with me, providing I'm guided to carry out any repair work myself. I'm very capable re electro-mechanicals [not electronics] of all types. Many years ago, I cut a twin tub washing machine in half to retain the spin drier, isolating all the electrics and riveting the cabinet. It lasted for years !

Hello, my name is George..

Sounds like you have managed to get moisture under the seal..
Pull the seal out and use a hair dryer from a safe distance to dry the electronics.

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