I also have a Whirlpool fridge freezer which is about 10 years old which again works fine but the ice cube dispenser keeps freezing up the water intake so stops producing ice . I can fix it by defrosting but then it does the same again . How do I fix for good ?

This is not an immediate service I am afraid, it can take time for experts to respond, as they will need time to go away and look into the fault, but we do try and respond as soon as possible.

Where your freezer ice machine keeps frosting up this suggests the appliance is probably getting alot of frost build up due to a poor door seal so worth checking the door seal.

As you do not know the model number of your DeDietrich hob I can only provide a general answer which is where the appliance has a safty feature such as to detect pans boiling over there is no way to turn off this feature.
