Electric Stove Problems

This section covers the most common issues you will experience if you have an electric stove. You will know what path gives you the highest odds of getting the situation under control, and you won’t need to waste time or energy on the wrong path.

If you think you have one of these issues, only try fixing it if you have the proper tools, experience and background to do so, or you could make the situation worse than it already is. If you want to stay safe and avoid extra complications, enlisting a Menomonee Falls electric stove repair team is the smart choice. Our experts will have your back and take the right steps to give you peace of mind.

Bad Burners (Heating Elements)

Some people think the worst when their stove stops working, and they sometimes buy a new stove without exploring other options. Following in their footsteps is not wise if you would like to find an effective solution that won’t harm your budget.

You will often find that a bad burner is the source of the issue with which you are dealing, and you can test the theory. Unplug your stove before you do anything, and you can then unscrew the burner and replace it with one that works. If your stove works after this step, the only problem was your burner. A Do-it-yourself repair can save a lot of money, if you know what you are doing. When in doubt, get a professional opinion.

Wiring or Fuse Issues

You could have wiring issues on hand if replacing your burner does not fix the problem. Electric stoves have complex systems of wires that allow them to function the right way. If something interferes with a wire’s ability to transfer power to the correct spot, you will experience a short circuit. Trying to run a stove with a short circuit can cause even more problems you will need to address, so leave it off until you get to the source of the issue. It takes an appliance repair expert like Dave’s Appliance Repair to fix short circuits without causing additional concerns.
