What causes an electric stove to stop working?

The stove is one of the most used appliances in any home. Over time, like all appliances, stoves go through general wear and tear, and some functions may stop working. Some of the reasons that an electric stovetop stops working are faulty wire connections, burnt wires, or a blown fuse.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common issues that require an electric stove repair service

Internal components are damaged

If your electric stove fails to turn on, a professional home appliance service technician will confirm if it’s an issue with the power source. Once it’s established that it’s not a problem with the beaker or the fuse box, it’s likely an issue with internal components. 

Burnt wire connection

Another reason why an electric stove fails to power up is a loose or burnt connection between the coils and the cooktop. If you’ve recently removed the coils for deep cleaning and the coils don’t heat up, it’s an indication that they were not put back correctly. 

Another cause for coils that fail to heat up is an issue with the cooktop’s internal ignition switch. This switch provides the action needed to heat the burners. If the problem has to do with the ignition switch, a certified technician will need to service the stove. 

Defective thermostat sensor

When you turn your cooktop or oven on, the thermostat or sensor monitors the temperature and shuts the voltage when the desired temperature is reached. If the thermostat or sensor is defective, the element may not turn on at all. Other reasons for this issue a faulty infinite switch or internal ignition switch. In any case, a professional home appliance service call is your best course of action.

Faulty control board

Most cooktops have electronic displays that show temperature settings and indicates that the cooktop or oven is on. If you notice that the displays won’t turn on, it can indicate one of two things; a defective control switch, which provides power to the electronic display feature, or burnt bulbs. These parts can easily be repaired or replaced.
