My Bosch 5 plate induction hob unit - approximately 15 years

Customer Question

My Bosch 5 plate induction hob unit - approximately 15 years old - has developed a fault. It works perfectly well for about three minutes but then clicks on and off as if a thermostat has kicked in to prevent it carrying on. Is it worth repairing or should I replace it?
JA: Is your Bosch hob gas or electric?
Customer: electric
JA: How long has this been going on with your Bosch hob? What have you tried so far?
Customer: about a month but I've been away for some of that time so haven't been using it constantly
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I've never liked it but I'm not sure what the alternatives are
