NOISES MADE BY THE HOB
Induction hobs can make whistling or crackling sounds during normal operation, these actually come from the pots and pans as a result of the characteristics of the bottoms (for example, bottoms made of several layers of material, or uneven bottoms). These noises vary depending on the pots and pans used and the amount of food they contain, and are not indicative of a defect of any kind.
In addition, the induction hob is equipped with an internal cooling system to control the temperature of electronic parts; as a result, during operation and for several minutes after the hob has been switched off, the noise of the cooling fan will be audible. This is perfectly normal and indeed essential for proper functioning of the appliance.

AFTER-SALES SERVICE
Before contacting the After-sales Service:
1. See if you can solve the problem yourself with the help of the “Troubleshooting guide”. 2. Switch the appliance off and then on again it to see if the problem has been eliminated. If the problem persists after the above checks, contact the nearest After-Sales Service. Always specify:  a brief description of the fault  the product type and exact model  your full address  your telephone number If any repairs are required, contact an authorized After-Sales Service Centre (to ensure the use of original spare parts and correct repairs). Spare parts are available.
Energy saving
For optimum results, it is advisable to:  Use pots and pans with bottom width equal to that of the cooking zone.  Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans.  When possible, keep pot lids on during cooking.  Use a pressure cooker to save even more energy and time.  Place the pot in the middle of the cooking zone marked on the hob.
