The most common errors in Miele electric cooktops

Ouch, your Miele cooktop is giving an error message. What's going on exactly? Below, I've listed the most common error messages on Miele ceramic and induction cooktops.

Malfunction FE37 or FE44

Problem: The overheating protection has switched off the cooktop.

How can I solve this? Let the cooktop cool down. As soon as the cooktop has cooled down, it should respond again.

Malfunction FE91, FE92, FE93, or FE94

Problem: The electrical connection is incorrect, meaning the voltage the cooktop is receiving is either too high or too low.

How can I solve this? Have a licensed technician check the electrical connection.

Malfunction FE47 or FE48

Problem: The fan is blocked.

How can I solve this? There's a fan on the underside of the cooktop. Check to make sure it's not being blocked by, for example, a product in the drawer or the cupboard under your cooktop.

Malfunction FE + number

Problem An internal error has occurred.

How can I solve this? Disconnect the cooktop from power by pulling the plug and wait a minute before putting the power back on.

Malfunction F

Problem: One or more keys are covered by objects or dirt.

How can I solve this? Clean the keys or remove the object that's on the keys.

Malfunction LC or LOC

Problem: This is not a malfunction; rather, it indicates that the child safety lock is on.

How can I solve this? Switch off the child safety lock. How you can do this differs pet cooktop. You'll find it in the manual, in the chapter "System Lock/Safety Lock".

Malfunction dE

Problem: This is not a malfunction; rather, it indicates that the cooktop is in demonstration mode. In demonstration mode, dE will briefly appear on the display. In this mode, the cooking zones don't get hot.

How can I solve this? Switch off the demo function. How to do this differs per cooktop. You'll find it in the manual, in the chapter "Programming".

Malfunction Err + 30

Problem: The timer display alternates between Err and 30. This indicates that the cooktop is connected incorrectly.

How can I solve this? Have a licensed installation technician check if the cooktop is connected in the correct way according to the connection diagram.

Malfunction Err + 44

Problem: The timer display alternates between Err and 44. This indicates that the overheating protection has intervened.

How do I solve this? Allow the cooktop to cool down. As soon as the cooktop has cooled down, it should respond again.

Malfunction Err + 47, Err + 48, or Err + 49

Problem: The timer display alternates between Err and 47, 48, or 49. This means the fan is blocked.

How can I solve this? There's a fan on the underside of the cooktop. Check to make sure it's not being blocked by, for example, a product in the drawer or the cupboard under your cooktop.

Malfunction Err + number

Problem An internal error has occurred.

How can I solve this? Disconnect the cooktop from power by pulling the plug and wait a minute before putting the power back on.

Flashing power level

Problem: The power levels 1 through 9 are flashing. This indicates there's no pan on top of the cooking zone, or that the pan isn't suitable for induction.

How can I solve this?

  • Use a pan with a larger diameter. The cooktop won't correctly register a pan that's smaller than the cooking zone.
  • Use a pan that's suitable for use on an induction cooktop.

Didn't fix the issue?

You can't solve all error messages yourself. If the solutions listed weren't helpful, you'll need a technician:

  • Did you buy the cooktop from us? Contact our customer service right away. We'll gladly help you along, whether you're within the warranty period or not.
  • Did you buy the cooktop elsewhere, but is it still within the warranty period? Contact the cooktop vendor.
  • Did you buy the cooktop elsewhere, and is it outside the warranty, but you would like the problem to be solved? Contact Miele.
