What is Error Code ‘F’ or ‘U’ On and AEG Induction Hob?

Is your AEG Induction Hob displaying error code ‘F’ or ‘U’? Find out what it means here with a video from AEG themselves. Transcription below.


If an F or a U error code appears on your induction hob, it means that no cookware has been detected. Once a pan is in position or the cooking zone is turned off, the error code will disappear. Alternatively, it could be because the cookware you’re using isn’t suitable. Be sure to only use pans that are made from an iron-based metal and are specifically designed for induction cooking.
