We have described the error code FE31 induction cooker Miele, the causes of the malfunction, the recommendations of diagnostics and repair. For convenience, arranged in a convenient and understandable table below.
My Miele induction cooktop was broken last week after 4.5 years of use. Today one of the two logic boards got replaced and guess how much did it cost? $700!!! I guess it's like any German products if you have the money to buy you won't have the money to repair or keep it running. I don't know if I am just bad luck or the induction technology is new or that electronics being electronics they will fail regardless of brands / usage / time. But I still think being a premium brand having only been using for 4.5 years it shouldn't break! And god knows when it might break again. But what I am certain is that I will be getting a Korean branded induction cooktops next time for sure!!!
The service guy was very polite and the job was quick. It was almost like he knew exactly what he had to replace. And he did say that electronics being electronics they will fail. But that's not the reason why I paid top dollars for my Miele induction cooktops. Maybe all I paid was a superficial look and brand that's probably all. Dam it.
I got 2 years 6 months out of the Miele induction cook top, KM5753, and a repair bill of $1600 quoted to repair. Needless to say we now have a new and different brand cooktop. A letter of complaint still has no reply from over a year ago. Love Miele
We bought a Miele induction cooktop a bit over 3 yrs ago. About a month again the left large cooktop made a bit of a noise for a while but stopped. Two days ago, I had 2 of the 3 zones on when it made a loud bang and short flash of light appeared.My husband, an electrician for small kitchen appliances opened it up and we couldn't believe it. The two smaller zones have a cover to stop any magnets falling down onto the control board which is partly uncovered.
Mmmm, our isn't induction but our Miele KM543 Ceramic cooktop with sensor controls is around 6 years old. 2 of the elements have burnt out and cost around $340.00 each to replace. Plus now the electronics are flashing on/off a bit, the cooktop shuts off midway through cooking, and takes around 20 mins to reset itself.
How did I get it to work this time? well I thought of ways to reduce the voltage to the unit and came across all sorts of stuff on the net including powerbox voltage reducers, optimisers, blah, blah... I thought this is total rubbish and I'm going to ring the power company and complain about the voltage being so high when it's not supposed to be. I then thought back to my old high school physics days and remembered that there's a relationship between voltage, current and resistance. I then thought the voltage to the induction cooktop (as well as to all the other power outlets/circuits in the house) is likely to drop if I plug in and turned on a lot of high resistance electrical appliances. 2b1af7f3a8
