I have a Siemens schott ceranstovetop. I used it on Sunday

Customer Question

I have a Siemens schott ceran(###) ###-####stovetop. I used it on Sunday night and upon going to use it again last night noticed a large crack around the touch controls. I didn't drop anything on it nor was i aware of it happening, but now the induction rings don't seem to register that there is anything on them and turn off after a short while. Is the problem repairable or does the whole stovetop need replacing?
JA: Is your Siemens range gas or electric? How old is it?
Customer: electric
JA: How long has this been going on with your Siemens range? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I noticed the problem last night, could only have occured on Saturday night

Good day,

Without the information requested in my previous response, I can only give you a general answer however, I hope this helps.

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

That may have blown hence, caused the crack.

Please leave the hob unplugged till it is repaired.

Alternatively, you may call Siemens at 03448 928 999 to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
