This is why so many people tend to panic as soon as anything goes wrong. Most stove issues can be repaired fairly quickly by a trained and experienced technician. Of course, if you take the time to perform regular cleaning and maintenance, many common problems can be avoided along with the cost of professional stove repair services.
Gas burner fails to light
If you have a gas stove and it is not igniting, there are a few possible reasons for this. If the ignition on the stove is electric, you should hear a clicking sound when turning it on. If you don't hear this sound and you can smell gas, it could be a faulty ignition switch. You can always test another burner just to be sure. Another good tip is to remove any removable parts and clean them thoroughly. Just make sure that you don't use too much water. Loose wires can also be to blame so be on the lookout for this while cleaning. Regular cleaning helps prevent this type of problem from occurring.
Slow heating gas burner
If you notice that all of your burners are heating slowly, it could be due to clogged burner openings. The flames tend to be smaller and this means that they don't get as hot as they should. You can fix or even prevent this issue by cleaning the burner caps thoroughly with soap and water on a regular basis. Always unplug your stove before cleaning! If there are any areas that are particularly small, you can use a toothpick to remove stubborn debris.
Electric burner not turning on
If your electric burner is not working, you should test all of them. If none are working, check your power supply. If there are no power supply issues, it could be a wiring issue. If it's just one burner, the coil might need to be replaced. Wear and tear occur every time you use your appliance and this type of wear cannot be prevented.
Induction element failing to heat
If you are using an induction stove, remember to use the appropriate cookware. Special pans are designed for these stoves so that heat is properly distributed. If you are using such a pan and it's still not working, you might need to try another burner. If the fault persists, call a trained and qualified professional.
Gas stove makes a clicking noise
When you turn on your stove, it makes a clicking noise which is the ignition switch. If it clicks after the burner is lit, it could be due to a blockage of sorts. Inspect the burner cap and clean. Regular cleaning helps prevent this issue. If you notice moisture, this is another possible cause. Make sure that you remove the cap and allow it to dry thoroughly before replacing it. You can dry it quickly using a fan or even a hairdryer on a low temperature setting.
As you can see, most of these common issues can be prevented simply by cleaning your stove regularly and thoroughly. Whenever removing parts from your stove to clean, take the time to make sure they are completely dry before they are replaced. Moisture can be just as devastating as the debris that was once there. However, if you find anything difficult to deal with, you should seek professional appliance repair help when needed.
