Electric Stove Problems
Before you can call for repair, you must first recognize the problem and whether it necessitates a professional repairman. Here are some common electric stove problems you may face and the repairs they require.
- Stove Doesn’t Turn On – If your electric stove won’t turn on, first check to make sure the oven is not in self-cleaning mode. If not, check to see if you have blown a fuse or flipped a breaker. If these are not problems either, it may be an issue with the wiring behind the range. While it is possible to test the voltage, it is recommended at this point that you call for repair.
- Not Warming Up – If your electric stove turns on but the surface burners don’t warm up, the most common problem is the burner element. If you notice a break in the element or a bubble on its surface, this is likely the problem. In a situation like this, you need to call a trained professional who can handle the electrical components and replace a burner element.
- Constantly Tripping a Breaker – If your breaker flips every time you turn on your electric stove, there is likely something wrong with the range. While it is most common for the oven to cause this problem, a shorted out terminal block can be a major issue for your entire range and should be tested by a professional immediately.
If you are concerned about the operation of any element of your electric stove, call a professional right away. Not only is it dangerous to have a malfunctioning electrical device in your home; many times these problems can be fixed easily enough, but only if you act quickly and don’t wait for the problem to get worse.
Electric Stove Repair Service
When you call for a professional to inspect your electric stove, the first thing they will do is check the various terminal blocks and wiring to ensure the device’s core components work properly. They will also check the burner elements and likely will inspect the oven elements and burner plates to ensure there are no issues there.
While the problem may seem evident, many times there are other smaller issues in your range that were either the cause of or developed because of the initial problem.
