Induction hob displays error code F or F1

Last updated 21/11/2019 10:43

Issue:

  • Error code “F” appears on display of induction hob
  • Error code “F1“ appears on display of induction hob
  • SenseBoil® function does not work
  • Cannot activate the SenseBoil® function

Applies to:

  • Induction hobs with SenseBoil® function

Resolution:

1. Make sure surface of hob is dry.

2. Do not activate any zone with an empty pot on it.

3. Check if the pot you chose is suitable for SenseBoil® by monitoring the first cooking session.

4. The function does not work with cast iron and non-stick cookware, e.g. with a ceramic coating.

5. Enamelled steel pots are recommended for achieving the best results while boiling potatoes.

Suitable cookware is available in our Webshop.

Tips:

  • The function works best for boiling water and preparing potatoes
  • Make sure the total weight of water and potatoes does not exceed 5 kg
  • Different pots can deliver different result, cookware with correct dimensions is recommended. Consult Technical Data section in the user manual.
  • Use only pots with dry and clean bottoms. 
  • Avoid producing external vibrations (e.g. from using a blender or placing a mobile phone next to the appliance) when the function is running

Cause: 

  • Error code F1 indicates that the power is too low due to unsuitable cookware or an empty pot
  • Error code F indicates that there is no cookware on the zone or the cookware is unsuitable
