Electric hob repairs
Electric hob installation and repair services
The electric hobs available on today’s market include ceramic models with red-light halogen to provide steady heat with maximum control, or more traditional models using sealed metal plates. (These days you’re more likely to find these plates than the older coil units.)
Of course, many induction hobs are also powered by electricity.
But whichever version you choose, with their user-friendly design, electric hobs are robust and cost-effective for any kitchen, while providing excellent heat distribution across the base of a pan. They’re particularly well suited to cast-iron cookware.
Additionally, the flat surface of electric hobs makes them very easy to clean – and if your hob has touch controls rather than dials, it’s even harder for dirt to become trapped.
Electric hobs should not cause their owners or users many problems in the normal course of events. But, over time, things can crop up at any point, as they can with any domestic appliance. And since you probably use your hob daily, it can be extremely frustrating when things go wrong.
Common electric hob faults
Here, we look at some of the more common issues:
- Part of the ring is not warming up
If some parts of a hob ring are not getting hot, it may be that there’s a faulty connection with the wires. A professional electric hob repairs technician should assess the wiring for damage, and they may use a multimeter or handheld tester to check voltage, current and resistance.
- My hob has no power
If no power seems to be reaching your hob, it may be that you need to check the terminal block. This is inside your hob, where the power cable enters it. Again, an electric hob repairs specialist will be able to tell if there are any signs of damaged or burnt connections, and advise on an appropriate course of action. Equally, there could be a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
- Poor heat regulation
If the heat of your hob is going from 0 to 60 at full pelt, you should get your control board or regulator looked at. Once again, you need a professional electric hob repair firm.
- Faulty energy regulator
If a plate isn’t heating up, another issue could be the energy regulator, i.e. the plate power control knob mechanism. If it has become cracked, broken or burnt, the on/off functions or temperature control may no longer be operational. If that’s the case, it may need replacing.
