common cooking faults

this page cover most common faults and problems with domestic cooking appliances (built in and freestanding ovens, cookers and hobs including gas). like with anything this isn’t 100% and is just a guide, with all cases we recommend booking a glotech engineer out for the quickest and hassle free repair.

built-in

integrated oven

  • tripping electrics – commonly caused by a malfunctioning element.
  • not heating – could either be the element or fan motor, if the fan is spinning then it is most likely to be the heating element. however could also be caused by a faulty thermostat or timer.
  • power is present but isn’t working – sometimes the pcb timers need to be reset for the oven to work.

integrated hob electric

  • one dead ring – can be a couple of faults most likely to be a faulty heater.
  • two dead rings – being a set of rings have gone it most likely an electronic fault either a burnt out cable or maybe the selector switch.

integrate hob gas

  • hob not sparking – can be a couple of issues from a broken spark generator to a damage electrode.
  • hob constantly igniting – also can be a couple of issues and isn’t always the same fault.

integrate hood

  • noisy – if the change is sudden it is most likely to be a motor fault.

freestanding

range and slot in cookers gas

  • small flame in oven – this is often caused by the flame failure device
  • hob not sparking – can be a couple of issues from a broken spark generator to a damage electrode
  • hob constantly igniting – also can be a couple of issues and isn’t always the same fault.

as per any gas work it is a legal requirement that the worker is gas safe registered, glotech only send out gas safe engineers to gas cookers and hobs. it is vital you get a qualified and insured engineer out who offers a guarantee on any work undertaken just like if you called out a glotech engineer.
