Overheat Protection

All the induction coils and the cooling elements for the electronics are equipped with an overheating protection mechanism. To prevent the induction coils and cooling elements from overheating, the overheating protection mechanism works on the affected cooking zone or on the entire cooktop in the following ways:

Inductive coils

  • Any booster function in operation will be turned off.
  • The power level that is set will be reduced.
  • The cooking zone turns off automatically. FE flashes in the timer display alternatingly with 44.

You can use the cooking zones again as usual when the fault message has gone out.

Cooling elements

  • Any booster function in operation will be turned off.
  • The power level that is set will be reduced.
  • The cooking zones turn off automatically.

The affected cooking zones can only be used again if the cooling element has cooled down to a safe level.

Overheating can be caused by:

  • Heating empty cookware
  • Fats or oils being heated at high power settings
  • Underside of cooktop insufficiently ventilated
  • A hot cooking zone being turned on after a power outage

Troubleshooting

TroublePossible Cause
There is a strange smell or vapors when the appliance is being used for the first time.Metal components are protected by a conditioning agent. Smells and vapor may occur when the appliance is used for the first time. The smell and any vapors do not indicate a faulty connection or a defective appliance and are not harmful to your health. With each subsequent use, the odor is reduced until it disappears completely. The smell and any vapors do not indicate a faulty connection or a defective appliance and are not harmful to your health.
Power levels 1 to 9 flash.There is no or unsuitable cookware on the cooking zone. Use a suitable pan.
A burner switches itself off automatically.A burner might have been operated for too long. You can use the burner again by switching it back on.
A cooking zone or the whole cooktop turns off automatically.The overheat protection was triggered.
The booster has automatically switched off early.The overheat protection was triggered.
The burner is not working in the usual way with the set power level.The overheat protection was triggered.
Power setting 9 is automatically reduced if you select power setting 9 on two linked burners or extended zones at the same time.Operating both zones at power level 9 would exceed the permitted maximum power for the cooktop. Use another burner that is not linked.
A noise can be heard after the appliance is turned off.The fan will continue running until the appliance has cooled down. It will then switch itself off automatically.
One or more residual heat indicators is flashing.There was a power failure during operation or when residual heat was present. You called the programming function while residual heat was still present.

System lock and Safety lock

Your cooktop is equipped with a safety lock to prevent the cooktop and the cooking zones being turned on or any settings being altered.

The system lock is activated when the cooktop is turned off. When it is activated, the cooktop cannot be turned on and the timer cannot be used. The cooktop is programmed so that the system lock must be activated manually. It can be programmed to be activated automatically 5 minutes after the cooktop has been turned off if the system lock is not manually activated first.

The safety lock is activated when the cooktop is turned on. When the safety lock is activated, the cooktop can be operated only under certain conditions:

  • The power levels for the cooking zones and the timer settings cannot be changed.
  • The cooking zones, entire cooktop, and the timer can be turned off, but once turned off cannot be turned on again.

If a locked sensor switch is touched when the safety lock or the system lock is activated, the indicator light comes on and LC appears in the timer display for a few seconds.

Activating: Tap the ‘LOCK’ and 0 sensor buttons of both right cooking zones until LC the indicator light of the safety lock appears in the timer display. The indicator light and LC go out after a short while.

Deactivating: Tap the ‘LOCK’ and 0 sensor buttons of both right cooking zones until LC the indicator light of the safety lock go out in the timer display.

How it works?

An induction coil is located under each cooking zone. When a zone is turned on, this coil creates a magnetic field that impacts directly on the base of the pan and heats it up. The cooking zone itself is heated up indirectly by the heat given off by the pan.

An induction cooking zone only works when a ferromagnetic pan is placed on it. The induction cooking zone automatically recognizes the size of the pan.

On the control scale of the cooking zone, power levels 1 to 9 flash if:

  • No cookware or unsuitable cookware (items without a magnetizable bottom) is being used.
  • The bottom diameter of the cookware being used is too small.
  • The cookware is removed from a cooking zone that is on.

If suitable cookware is placed on the cooking zone within 3 minutes, you can continue as usual. If no cookware or if unsuitable cookware is used, the cooking zone will automatically turn off after 3 minutes.
