Getting a Broken Cooktop Fixed Doesn’t Have to Be a Nightmare

There may be no greater kitchen frustration than going to prepare a meal and discovering that something is broken on your stove. Problems with electric cooktops can be varied, and can range from a simple do-it-yourself fix to a more complicated concern. No matter the issue, if you feel you need help getting a broken cooktop fixed, there’s no better place to turn than a trusted and experienced professional appliance repair service.


Symptoms and Solutions


As is the case with most mechanical or electrical problems, the solution depends entirely on the specifics of the problem. Here are a few common issues that can arise when a broken electric range causes problems:

  • Element(s) won’t turn on – If it’s just one element that is acting strangely, you may be in luck. Try swapping the malfunctioning element for another one on the stove of the same size. If it doesn’t work in the new space either, then you know it’s a broken part and all you need to do is get a replacement element. If it works in its new spot, however, or if multiple elements are refusing to work properly, you may be looking at a problem with the wiring or switches. Some people may feel perfectly comfortable tackling an electrical appliance issue like that, but if you don’t, the best course of action is to bring in an expert stove repair company.
  • Elements stuck on "high” setting – The dials you use to control the heat levels of your electric range elements are usually directly wired to switches, and then to the elements themselves. Losing the ability to control your stovetop elements could be the result of a faulty or broken switch, and might need the expertise of a trained appliance repair technician to fix.
  • Indicator light stuck in "on” position – You know the stove is set to "off”, but the indicator light is still lit. Again, this could be a problem with your electric range’s wiring. Unless you have dealt with appliance electrical problems before, calling a local appliance repair firm is your best bet. Without the proper expertise, equipment and experience, not only can electrical and wiring repairs be difficult and time-consuming, they can also be potentially very dangerous, both in terms of your own personal safety and the reliability of the appliance you’re working on once your repair work is done.
There are many things that can go wrong with just about any home appliance. Some problems are easy fixes that you can handle yourself, but others are more complicated. Doing these repairs yourself could result in more damage to your fridge or stove, or might even pose a safety risk. When in doubt about getting a broken cooktop fixed, it’s often better to play it safe and call in a professional.
