Meals like soups, stews, and fried foods are all prepared on stoves. Different types of foods and different stages of cooking require different levels of heat. For example, boiling requires a high-temperature whereas simmering calls for a medium to low temperature.
Whether one or more burners do not turn on, or you are unable to regulate their temperature, it’s always cause for concern.
Due to safety concerns, both gas and electric stoves should always be repaired by professionals.
While many people might think of stoves as fairly simple appliances, it’s not simply a matter of diagnosing the problem.
Hiring a professional certainly speeds up the repair process while ensuring that proper safety steps are followed.
Fat, grease and oil are not easily flammable, but such accidents do happen. Remember to keep things such as paper towels and other easily flammable objects away from the stove at all times.
Leaving your stove on is not something you would want to do for obvious reasons. Nevertheless, if you do forget about a burner, this probably won’t cause a fire as they were designed to run indefinitely. The only thing to worry about is whether or not you left something on top.
Stove repair duration heavily depends on whether or not spare parts are needed. If the repairman already has the spare parts, fixing the stove often takes less than a day. In the case that the spare part is not available at the moment, the repair will take longer.
On average, your stove should last you between 10 and 15 years. To avoid breakdowns and frequent stove repairs, try to care for your stove as much as possible.
Since metal pads and highly abrasive cleaners are not recommendable because they can leave scratches on the surface, it might be hard for you to get rid of those stubborn stains. However, there are some good solutions you can choose from. For example, something simple as boiling water or some salt and baking soda mixed with water can do the trick. If simple methods like this don’t work, you can mix one-part white vinegar with two parts water into a spray bottle and spray it on the surface.
Once your cooktop gets scratched, there is no way you can remove them. The only thing you can do is try to prevent them with proper care. For example, cast iron cookware is normally very rough and can leave scratches on your stove, so avoid using it. When you’re cleaning, do not use abrasive cleaning solutions or metal pads. They will do more damage than good.
When it comes to electric vs ceramic cooktops, there are advantages and disadvantages to both. In terms of cleaning and maintenance, electric coil surfaces are very simple, whereas ceramic surfaces require specific cleaning methods. On the other hand, electric stoves can sometimes lose connectivity, which makes it harder for the burners to heat properly. This is a problem that ceramic coil stoves don’t normally have. Therefore, the choice between the two is a matter of personal taste.
When you can’t regulate the temperature of your stove, the most common cause is the infinite switch that controls the power supply to the burner. This type of stove repair requires a replacement part that an appliance repair technician can easily get and install.
Some stove burners can be faulty and don’t heat up properly. In such cases, the burner needs replacement. On the other hand, the cause of the problem can also be a faulty switch or a bad connection to the burner socket. It’s best not to deal with these issues by yourself because only a stove repair technician can do it safely.
If you can’t turn on your stove, the problem may be as simple as it not being plugged into the wall socket. In some cases, your stove may be perfectly fine, but it’s the burner that’s faulty. Before you call for a repairman, make sure to check all burners and see if any of them are working. If this is not the case, a stove repair technician will be able to determine the cause of the problem.
While stoves are considered relatively simple appliances (compared to more complex devices), it’s not advisable to attempt repairs yourself. Apart from potentially making the problem worse, you could even end up paying more.
