    I’ve owned two previous induction hobs without issue but now have a Neff T36FB41X0G 4 zone hob.

    When using one or two pans it makes the usual very low humming noises associated with induction cooking but when three or four pans are used there’s a very audible clicking, like a car indicator relay energising and de-energising along with very loud humming that ramps up and down.

    Has anybody else experienced this, maybe with this particular hob or any others?

    Initially I assumed it was a power management issue as it came with a flex and plug top so I’ve deactivated the 3kW limit within the basic settings of the hob and wired directly to the hob with a 6mm cable on a 32A circuit.
    That’s not changed a thing.

    Also the pans are of very reasonable quality being Circulon induction rated.

    Try and determine if it's a particular zone that perhaps you don't norally use when just using two pans.

    So try each zone in turn by itself for a few minutes each to determine what's actually happening, it sounds to me like one zone is not registering a pan.

    If you can determine which zone is playing up ....the try using a steel pan. Some induction pans despite saying induction on the base can be problematical as they don't have enough ferrous in them ! So the hob sensors can't detect them !
