This answer was rated:

Bosch induction hob, bought March last year. Don't know the model. Problem: when you press the ON/OFF button a little red light comes on above the padlock icon. No other buttons are responding. Holding down the ON/OFF button for 5 or more seconds to 'unlock' the child lock does not work. Have turned socket off at wall for an hour. Still no joy. This appliance belongs to my 93 year old parents. No cooker for 5 days now. Help!


From what you say the child lock is on. Without a model number this makes it a bit harder to know which you have but try this first and see what happens and let me know.

Press and hold the picture of the padlock for about 10 seconds or so and see if this turns the lock off.

Try that first and see what happens and let me know.

That worked! Thought we already did that but must have been pressing not quite the right place. Thanks so much.
I would really like a manual for this equipment. How can I find out what model it is? There is nothing written on it except Bosch.

Nice one glad to hear thats sorted it.

The model number will be on a sticker on the underside of the hob. So if theres an oven under there or a drawer you need to remove them and then you can access the underside of the hob and get the model number from there.

Once you have the model number go to Bosch's website and you can download the manual from there.

If you could also remember to rate the answer that would be great.
