If your electric hob is losing power in one of the heating rings, is not heating up as fast as it should or is not functioning at all, you are best off calling out a professional electrician to take a look. Cookers are powerful appliances and a malfunctioning one is not only inconvenient but could also trip fuses in the rest of the kitchen.
With most modern electric hobs it is usually a malfunctioning element that will be causing the problem. But your electrician will be able to diagnose the problem quickly and decide whether the fault is down to a loose connection, faulty switch, timer, worn wire or a failing element that will need replacing.
In most cases the faulty part on your electric hob can be replaced easily and your electrician will be able to lay his hands on the part from one of his suppliers or order the part and come back later to complete the task. If they are a kitchen specialist then they will keep common parts for well-known brands with them when they come to a call out.
In very rare cases your electrician may find a larger fault with your home’s wiring to be the problem. This can prove to be expensive, but the ability to spot such dangerous faults is part of what your money buys when you hire a professional electrician.
