Common Stove and Cooktop Repair Issues
When you’re in the middle of cooking, the last thing you need is for your stove and cooktop to go on the fritz. Unfortunately, that is what happens from time to time. With so many years in this business, we’ve seen just about every issue when it comes to stove and cooktop repairs. Here are some of the repair issues we tend to run into most often.
Your Burner Won’t Get Hot
When the burner on your cooktop won’t get hot, the underlying issue depends largely on whether your stove is electric or gas.
Gas Burner Won’t Light
If your gas burner won’t light, there may be a few different causes. If you don’t hear the normal “click” when you try to light the burner, but you still smell gas, then you may have a problem with the ignition switch. If, however, you do hear the click but don’t smell the gas, then there is probably a problem with your stove’s gas flow.
If you have an electric stove and one of the burners won’t get hot, your first move should be to test the other burners. If none of them get hot, then you’re more than likely looking at an electrical issue. If it’s just the one burner, then the issue may be related to the burner’s coil.
You may be able to fix this yourself by simply tossing the one you have and putting in a new one. Try this with an existing coil. If it still doesn’t get hot, then the issue may be electrical, and you’ll need to call in a professional to take a look.
Gas Cooktop Won’t Stop Clicking
Some clicking is normal when you turn on your gas stovetop. This is the igniter lighting up the gas so that you can cook. However, if you hear excessive clicking, you may have either debris or excess moisture blocking the burner, which will not allow the igniter to ignite the gas properly. You should be able to remove the debris or use a towel to mop up excess moisture to fix the problem.
Stovetop Heats Up Too Slowly
It’s been five minutes, and your stovetop still hasn’t heated up to the temperature you set. If you have a gas cooktop, this might be because your burner openings are clogged with debris. This blocks the flames from properly heating up the elements and means you need to thoroughly clean your stovetop to clear up the issue.
If you have an electric stovetop, then this may be an electrical issue. For these more serious problems, you need a professional to diagnose and repair the underlying cause. You should never attempt to fix something electrical unless you have prior experience as an electrician. It may be inconvenient to wait, but it’s certainly safer to allow a professional to repair it than to attempt to fix it yourself. At worst, you could get severely injured, and at best you could make the problem worse and require a replacement instead of a repair.
