Induction hob repairs
Induction hob installation and repair services
The key difference that sets induction hobs apart from the alternatives on today’s market is that they heat the pan directly, rather than the hob ring.
Turning on an induction hob activates a magnetic field beneath the surface. Once a saucepan is in place, this completes the circuit so the pan’s base heats up.
Induction cooking is fast – it can even bring a small volume of water to the boil more briskly than a kettle. There’s also great precision and responsiveness – turn the temperature up or down with almost immediate effect.
What’s more, these hobs are user-friendly, energy-efficient and easy to clean. So it’s no wonder they’re such a popular choice in kitchens across the UK.
However, like any other item of mechanical equipment, an induction hob is liable to wear and tear.
Common induction hob faults
Here are three of the most frequently experienced niggles:
- Hob turns off during cooking
If your hob turns off during cooking, this could well be because of its automatic feature if your cooking has gone overt the maximum time limit. Study your manual to find out more. Equally, heat sensors could have identified a high internal temperature – check that the vent holes aren’t blocked or covered.
- Food not cooked or heated properly
Check the heat setting: it could well be too low, so adjust accordingly. Your cookware also has to have a large enough bottom, and should be made of ferromagnetic material.
- Uneven or overheating
Again, check your cookware. Is it sitting flat on the burner to ensure even heating? Equally, it may not be heavyweight enough. Also, make sure you are using the right temperature setting.
- Hearing strange noises?
A low-level hum is quite normal, since these hobs have a fan to cool the electrical components. It’s also usual to hear a ‘click’ when you place a pan on the hob.
- Hob isn’t starting up
Check the induction hob control panel isn’t locked, and that the pan you’re using is the right size for the ring.
- Hob is flashing after cooking finishes
The obvious one here is you may have just forgotten to turn the hob off!
