Common Stove Problems
1. Stove Isn’t Turning On
The cause of a stove that won’t even turn on will always rely heavily on whether it’s a gas or electric apparatus.
In the case of gas stoves, the most frequent cause of burner ignition trouble is the buildup of grease and other debris that prevents gas from reaching the ignitor.
Meanwhile, electric stoves that won’t start a little bit trickier to diagnose. They may be experiencing trouble with a faulty burner, a problematic switch, or even a weak connection in a burner socket.
2. Stove Not Heating Up
If your electric burners are having trouble, there can be a few things responsible. The easier way to tell what is going on is to ascertain whether all the burners in question seem to be faulty. If they are, and particularly if the clock on top is still working, the issue is likely to be electrical and will require the aid of a professional to fix your stove. If the issue seems to be only occurring on one burner, the individual coil is likely to be the problem.
3. Gas Stove Is Clicking
It can feel somewhat ominous when a gas stove starts to click. Luckily, it’s rarely a serious issue. The culprit could be moisture or food particles that are blocking the burner. Often this will happen after allowing a pot to boil over, or after a particularly messy round of cooking.
As mentioned, a clicking stove is not likely to be a major issue. This issue is mostly seen on Kenmore branded ovens. But of course for any brand of the stove, if you smell gas or suspect a leak, it may be a good idea to reach out for professional help.
