Common Faults with an Electric Hob

Do you know that there are three different types of electric hob? These are ceramic, conventional and induction. Different types of electric hob can be affected by different issues and in the latest post from Cooker Solutions, we take a look at some of the most common issues and what could be causing them.

Ceramic Hob: Heat Regulation

If you find that the temperature of your oven hob isn’t being regulated and the temperature is going straight to full pelt, there may be an issue with your control board or regulator, and it could need replacing. A professional oven technician will assess this and advise you on the best course of action.

An Area of the Ring isn’t Heating up

In cases where the temperature seems to be fine, but parts of the hob ring aren’t heating up, there may be a faulty connection with the wires.

A professional oven technician will check the wires for damage and may use a multimeter on a resistance setting. What you want to see on the multimeter is a reading less than 100 ohms.

Electric Plate Hob: No Power

In circumstances where you aren’t receiving any power to your hob, the terminal block may need to be checked. The terminal block can be located inside the hob, where the power cable comes in. A professional cooker technician will be checking for any signs of burning or damage to the connections and then decide whether it will need repairing or replacing.
