This indicates the left side control board is faulty and will need replacement.

With these hobs there is the coils and boards, induction coils usually never fail.

The control board is available for around £148 + repair charges.

If you want to replace it yourself, unplug it and pull it out.

Then remove the rear off the appliance and then replace it.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service.

If you have any follow-up questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.

It has been a pleasure to assist you, have a wonderful evening.
