I already tried to switch off the breaker on the main electrical panel, but it didn't help unfortunately

What is showing on the display when it is switched on and have you had any trouble before.

I am in a rented home on holiday. Unfortunately I don't know if this happened before.
This morning it locked itself, but we managed to unlock it.
Now it's flashing with this every now and then - - - -

I have the manual in German and French.
But I couldn't find anything like this in the manual

Have you cooked on it before?

Could you put a pan on one of the hobs and then try and turn the hob on.

could you hold the main switch for 5 secs

Just did it. Nothing's happening.
Keeps flashing - - - -

Could you hold the key symbol for 4 secs. I don't think it is child lock but would be worth checking.

Could you let me know the model number off the instructions
