The centrepiece of most kitchens, it’s important to ensure that your cooker remains in full working order.
Electric cookers have both ovens and hobs, which means that more can go wrong with them. It’s best to call in a professional to fix the problem because trying to solve it yourself can be dangerous or cause more problems than you started with, costing you even more money.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are many reasons why electric cookers might need repairing. Take a look at some of the most common issues below.
Why is my cooker noisy?
Electric cookers that make noises usually means that a moving part is faulty. These parts could include the fan motor or cooling fan motor. Non-alignment of these parts can cause a screeching due to the blades rubbing against internal parts. Another reason might be that your cooker has faulty bearings. This is more common on older cookers. If this is the case then the bearings need to be replaced fairly soon as additional damage to the element due to over heating can occur. However, noises can also occur due to loose screws.
Why has the glass in the door shattered?
There is no clear answer because many things can cause your glass to shatter. Although uncommon, possible reasons are, weakened glass through slamming the door, wet towels that are in contact with the glass when the cooker in in use, impacts, poor installation and even thermostat problems.
Why is there smoke coming from my electric cooker?
It seems that most people experience a smoking cooker at some point, whether in the oven or on the hob. The problem is likely to be spillage or residue food. Turn off your oven and let it cool down and then check for dirt, soot or food. Clean it up and turn on the oven. There are no combustible parts in the oven or on the hob so the problem should go away after cleaning, however, if it persists call our engineers immediately.
