We repair the hob - failure of various models

Today cooking is common to use electric, gas and induction hobs.Each of the variants its advantages and disadvantages, as well as the nature of the fault.Next, we will explain what are breaking technology, their causes and methods for repairing cooktops with their own hands.

  • Electric Hob
  • Induction Cooker
  • stove

Electric Hob

To begin with talk about how to repair an electric hob and any faults can be atthis plate embodiment.Most often, the owners of electric heaters are faced with a situation where the device does not work or does not heat up one of the burners at power.Photo inline 4 -burner electric stove Candy

In this case, the repair be limited to what is necessary to perform the following steps:

  1. Check the voltage in the outlet, sinceperhaps out of order is this electric point, with the result that there is no power.
  2. carefully view the cord and the plug for mechanical damage.Sometimes this repair and ends - you just need to replace the electric plug or cord.
  3. Dismantle hob with worktop, turning off all the wires and loosening the fastening strap.Removing surface
  4. Use a multimeter to check the thermal fuse (pictured below) and the transformer.If the resistance is not any different from the nominal, it is necessary to replace the circuit elements with new ones.Fuse
  5. Check all wiring (on the control unit, switches, thermostats, burners) and make sure that there is no banal chain termination.First, try to visually locate the fault, and then a multimeter to ring all the regions of the chain according to the scheme.Reliable connection wires Using a multimeter

often not difficult to find a breakdown electric hob with your hands, if you are familiar with a multimeter.In the absence of this device, you can use a screwdriver indicator that shows the presence of voltage at a certain part of the chain.

addition, I would like to tell you why cooking electric panel may stop working, so that you know the cause of faults and how to repair each.Thus, among the main breakdowns, the following are the most common:

  • fuse blows as a result of a power surge.Replacement is not a big deal, besides the cost of the fuse scanty.To protect the equipment from such faults is recommended to install the network surge arrester.
  • burner does not work (one or several at once).Most likely open circuit occurred on the PETN.If this posting unsolder, repair their own hands will not be difficult in the presence of a soldering iron.If the heating element has blown it must be replaced.TEN rang, and he spent?Check the control unit, sometimes even contact breakage occurs on the switch that needs to be either repaired or replaced.Continuity of the heating element
  • sensor does not work.There are already things are more serious, sincetouch the hob will be difficult to repair electrician novice.First, as in the previous cases, the sensor will ring.If you find a banal cause of the fault fails, you will have to either replace the touch panel, or put in repair.Usually the failure of the circuit element is extremely rare and is caused by misuse of the equipment.If you find that the sensor does not turn on after washing, then the control unit simply blown from brine, which is recommended to wash the surface of some would-be advisers in the forums.Touch control unit
  • not heated or slightly warm.Again, rang the heating element, thermostat, temperature controller.It may be the opposite situation, when the electric cooktop is strongly heated and is not disabled.In this case, with a probability of 95% can be said that the cause of overheating is the failure of the thermostat, which turns off the power when not enough heating burners.Thermostat repair is not performed, so it must be replaced.
  • Cracked surface.The rarest of cases, which may occur with glass ceramic hob.If you saw that was formed on the surface of the web of cracks, and at the same time you are 100% sure that none of the family dropped her heavy dishes, the causes can be two.

Glass is exhausted by mechanical damage first option - a marriage of producer, it sometimes happens, as we saw in one of the reviews on the Internet, stating that the electric cooking stove Ariston cracked by itself and the affected equipment replaced with a new warranty.However, other more common fault explanation - improper use that detailed instructions for signing in the art.In the latter case, the repair of the hob will be costly and only your fault.

immediately recommend that you review the instructions in visual form, which shows how to properly repair the electrical surface:

If you are not running an induction hob, there may be several reasons for failure.To your attention an overview of the major faults and how to repair their own:
  1. Stove off and is not included.If the model of the modern technology, do not worry - it is in a special protective function.The power will be deactivated if the diameter or material of dishes is not suitable for heating.In addition, the lack of heating can be caused by the fact that you have cleaned the dishes with hot plates (inclusion is automatic only if there is capacity on the heating surface).By the way, do not worry, if the hob does not heat up itself, ason the principle of operation, the device only heats the dishes.The advantage of induction heating
  2. long and slightly warm.In this case, the most likely reason is unsuited container, so there is no need of repair.Check out the manufacturer's recommendations for selection of containers.To heat was fast and normal, the bottom should be flat, and the capacity of the material - metal.Otherwise, the situation may occur when the induction hob does not see the dishes, and therefore is not included.Recommended dishes
  3. Included independently in the absence of cookware on the hotplate.Here the problem is that, most likely, on the hotplate to be a metallic object, which triggers.In addition, it could be because the salt that remains on the surface after cleaning or a fault in the control unit, which will need to be repaired.
  4. not work at all.As we said earlier, you need to disassemble the equipment and ping all circuit elements.Repair is usually limited to what is necessary to replace the fuse yourself.


Well, the latest version of technology that can fail - a gas cooker.If you are not running a gas hob, there is not much cause of the failure.Typically, problems arise with the piezoelectric element and the nozzle from which gas is supplied.Gas model technology

So, to bring to your attention the causes of failures and ways to repair the hob with their hands:

  • Poor piezo ignited.In this case, you need to check for the presence of electric ignition burners clogs.If the ignition is really clogged, clean it and after cleaning carefully wipe with a dry cloth.piezo
  • is not gas.First, check whether the tap is closed for most of the gas pipe.Then get to the nozzle and see if it is clean.The reason that the gas can be supplied either stop going poorly, often is the pollution of the nozzle or fat food.Repair of such failure is not difficult, the main thing after washing thoroughly wipe the water off with a dry cloth.Gas nozzle

That's all the major faults of the gas hob.Sometimes incorrect operation may be due to improper installation of kitchen equipment.We recommend you review how to properly connect an electric hob with their hands!

addition, it should be noted that most of the standard breakages code can be displayed on the screen at the same time further intermittent signal sounds.This is called an error code, which can be found in the attached instructions.To repair the problem here or that the existing error, you can find it on discussion forums and read reviews from those who have already faced this problem and possibly know why beeping machines.Electronic display

Finally I would like to summarize that most electric hob does not work because of a failure of a fuse or contact failure.Less often breaks the control unit, which is difficult to repair.We hope that you now know why this technique breaks down and what to do to repair their own hands!
