What to do if the electric stove doesn’t work and you wanted to eat something? If you have a supply of cooked food, you can reheat it using the microwave.
Is it possible to deal with a broken stove without calling a master? Only if you are a master and understand the technique. If not, you’re better off calling Poway Appliance Service Center. The technicians will come quickly and fix your electric stove. But if you decide to look first on your own, then let’s figure out what you need to do.
Open contacts are in the lead in the ranking of causes of such a breakdown, as “the electric stove does not turn on”. The circuit should be tested in its entirety, from the distribution board with circuit breakers to the heating elements of the electric stove. Breakage can be found in the external wiring, socket, terminal module of the stove, internal electrical circuitry, as well as heating element of the oven or burner.
Check the fuse
The fuse – is a mandatory element in the circuit of high-power devices, which certainly includes the electric stove. It is even recommended to connect it to a separate “branch” of the network. Let’s hope that your stove is connected in this way and that the failure to turn it on is not a consequence of improper connection at all. In general, any overload (such as a power surge) can cause the fuse to “blow”.
Check the burners and heating elements
It is possible that not the entire stove does not turn on, but it is that burner, which you liked for cooking as the most comfortable (large, comfortable, or closest located).
Check the thermostat
If the heating elements are fine and should be warm, it’s probably the thermostat. A faulty thermostat can not set the desired mode of the heating burner, so burners do not heat.
Check the control unit
In the latest models of electric stoves, everything is run by electronics. This is very convenient, it extends the functionality of the stove, but it also makes the system more vulnerable. So, if the electronic module fails, everything else will not work, no matter how good it is.
So, I think, in general, you already understand how to repair an electric stove. The main thing is to find the breakage. And the best way to do that is to call a technician from Poway Appliance Service Center. The master will come at a convenient time for you and fix your electric stove.
