Good evening, and welcome to the Technical section in Just Answer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.

I'm sorry to hear of your hob problem.

If you're following the instructions given in the manual, and the hob is misbehaving like this, then the control board is faulty. This can be replaced, but your hob is still under warranty, so you can have it repaired at no cost. What is the model of your hob?

Sorry about delay. I found the web site very confusing so I left it until today. First everything seems to have come back to normal. I switched off power to whole unit for an hour. Everything now seems ok. I’ll keep all your details on file in case. Lastly I can’t access the model number as it is stamped on the hob somewhere and as the hob is fitted i don’t know how to find it. Can you help Wyn Sheryn

I'm glad to hear that it's now working :-)

The most common installation has an oven underneath the hob, which you would have to unmount and extract to be able to see the underside of the hob.
