What’s the function of safety shutoff in my cook-top? Is there any other reason for a cooking zone to switch itself off?

A safety shutoff ensures that cooking zones switch off automatically after a period of time if the setting has not been changed.


If one of the cooking zones is not switched off or the heat setting is not adjusted after an extended period of time, that particular cooking zone will automatically switch itself off.


The cooking zones switch themselves off at the following times.


Heat setting

Switch off


After 6 hours


After 5 hours


After 4 hours


After 1.5 hours


Other reasons why a cooking zone will switch itself off

All cooking zones will immediately switch themselves off if liquid boils over and lands on the control panel.

The automatic shutoff will also be activated if you place a damp cloth on the control panel. In both of these instances, the appliance will need to be switched on again using the main On/Off control sensor after the liquid or the cloth has been removed.
