Range Repair in Imperial Beach
You just decided, as a decent hostess, to spend the weekend at the stove, and then, you find that your stove is faulty. There's no need to get upset prematurely! Chula Vista Appliance Repair Center provides Range repair in Imperial Beach, CA. Of course, if you've decided that you can handle it on your own, you really have a chance!
Since your stove is electric, the vast majority of breakdowns are due to a malfunction in the electrical circuit that makes it work.
- disconnection of contacts;
- burning of contacts;
- burnout of the burner;
- burnout of the oven heating element;
- breakage of the electronic module (if any).
What exactly happened in your case?
Let's look into it. Especially since the external manifestations of the malfunction can often localize the area of search for a breakdown to a minimum. The main thing is to unplug the stove before starting any diagnostics and range repairs.
Stove shuts off a few minutes after being switched on
The electric stove shuts off just a few minutes after cooking begins, because the automatic protection is triggered. The most common cause of such a breakdown is a violation of the integrity of the insulation of the coil.
Where exactly? To find this out, you will need a multimeter set-in resistance measurement mode. Check all the burners. The faulty burner should be replaced.
The stove won't turn on
Here, the cause can be either inside or outside. That is, the socket and the plug you plug into the socket may be out of order.
Also, the power cord is often frayed at the place where it comes out of the housing. And, of course, you can't rule out a broken contact inside the electric stove itself. As you have already understood, to begin with, you should conduct an external inspection of the power cord and the inside of the stove, having previously removed the protective panels. Particular attention should be paid to the places where the power cord is connected to the terminal block, the wires to the burners and the power switches.
The stove is weakly heated
You've decided to make soup, but the water won't come to a boil?
So, if the stove heats up, but clearly weaker than what you expect (you set the power switch), then there may be several reasons. Firstly, it can be caused by a breakage of one of the coils, and secondly, by the malfunction of the power switch itself, through which you give the command to heat the burner.
The oven always heats to the maximum
The situation can be exactly the opposite, when you need to bake something at a medium temperature and for a long time, and the oven stubbornly heats to the maximum temperature, ruthlessly burning everything that is placed in it.
If it is the second or third time you have taken out of the oven a pie that is burnt around the edges and has a raw unbaked core, it is time to care about the good condition of the thermostat.
Defective thermostat when it reaches the set temperature opens the contacts of the heat-generating unit, and further heating does not occur.
If the thermostat is broken, it's just the opposite: the heating continues up to the maximum value provided by this model.
Sometimes it helps to remove the thermostat and dry it out. Perhaps it got splattered with grease when you fried the duck, or with detergent when you scrubbed the oven. More often than not, a malfunctioning thermostat has to be replaced with a new one. That's why it's a good idea to pay close attention to Range services.
Display Light Bulbs Are On All the Time
Display light bulbs are called "indicator light bulbs" because they inform the user of the "on/off" status of the appliance. If the indicator light is constantly on, even when the burners and the oven are off, this is a sign of malfunction. The breakdown in this case should be sought in the power switches, from which the indicator lights are powered.
