If the Hob displays error message A, it indicates that the automatic heat up function is switched on. See also the description the user manual. (If you do not have your user manual, refer to Where can I find the user manual for my appliance?).
The automatic heat function is the go-to option if you often prepare the same amount of food in the same saucepan.
- This function automatically turns the heat down after a pre-set time.
- With automatic heat up, the hot plate selects the highest power for a set time and then automatically switches to the chosen setting to continue cooking.
In the example in the image below (the dotted green line) the food is heated up at maximum heat for 6 minutes. Then the hot plate automatically switches to continue cooking at setting 4.
The values in the table correspond to approximate minutes.
