Accurate diagnosis is the most important part of the repair process when one is faced with a malfunctioning electric stove. The reason for this is simple: if the true underlying cause of your stove’s malfunction remains a mystery, it is virtually impossible to apply an effective repair solution.
While a layperson may be able to make educated guesses as to the source of the issues, it’s best to leave the official diagnosis to a professional. Think of it this way: you could have the mailman diagnose you with the flu, but isn’t it a better idea to let a doctor do it? Trust your appliance to the people with the tools, techniques, education, and experience to accurately diagnose your troubled unit.
Common Electric Stove Maladies
Here is a list of common electric stove issues and their possible causes:
- Coils are not heating up: This problem could be caused by a faulty internal ignition switch, a loose connection, or a foreign object blocking a vital connection. Connection issues could be the result of something heavy being dropped on the stove top, or something very cold being placed on a hot coil.
- Sparks: There may be loose wires and connections, or coil damage created by excess weight or extreme temperatures. You may also be using a coil that is incompatible with your unit’s make or model.
- Lights not turning in tandem with burners: This issue may be caused by a faulty control switch within the unit.
- Can’t adjust temperature: This problem can often be traced to a faulty internal ignition switch.
