  1. Hello, I have a cookéo connect, impossible to enter the code 8123 because when I turn the wheel the numbers only go up to 5 and if I continue it goes to the second number directly!!! I tried the code to the simple cookéo, same problem on the 2nd digit it does not go up to 9!!! In the 2 cases after the 2 digits I am asked in English to close the lid, open the lid lift the tank, put the tank back and finally something for the valve and there it blocks!!! What to do? If you have any other advice, I'll take it, thank you.
