Induction hobs are popular with some for the speed at which they heat up and the control they afford the user, but they can be more complex than traditional electric hobs when it comes to faults. For basic problems you should always turn to the troubleshooting pages in the user manual and run through any steps there that may solve the problem. You should also check that you have the right kind of pan for the hob. A fridge magnet will always stick to a pan that will work with your induction hob.
The main problems you will experience with induction hobs is heating rings not turning on or not turning off, rings not heating up sufficiently or the appliance not working at all. In most cases you will need an electrician to solve these faults, but an experienced electrician should be able to locate the fault quickly and replace switches, timers, bulbs, faulty wires or elements that are malfunctioning.
An electrician who specialises in kitchen work should have some basic brand name spares in the kit in his van when he calls and should know where to order or buy any more specialist parts that need replacing. The fault could be as simple as some worn or poorly-fitted wires within the induction hob, but more complex faults include a burnt out printed circuit board or failed internal fans. These fans can often be the cause of excess noise coming from your induction hob and an experienced electrician will be able to solve the problem swiftly by repairing or replacing the parts.
