A faulty temperature control sensor in the touch panel will lead to the same consequences as a broken mechanical power switch.

A faulty temperature sensor does not transmit temperature data to the control module, which of course shuts down the oven or the entire hob to prevent other parts of the hob from being damaged by overheating. It is worse when the sensor works, but not correctly, for example, because of stuck relay contacts: then overheating is quite possible, with all the unfortunate consequences that come with it.
