Not having the necessary skills to deal with electrics and appliances, looking for the damage yourself better not to engage, leaving that job to the expert. If you encounter problems with the operation of the appliance it is useful to read or reread the instructions to her. However, despite all the recommendations, the majority of typical faults the owners of the boards are trying to find and fix yourself, not to spend money on the services of a handyman.

The main damage

The most common reason can stop working electric – power outages. If not warm no oven, no burners, the first step is to test the voltage throughout the house (turn lights), and if everything is in order – the status of the outlet to which the device is connected. You can use the special tester or, if not, just connect to the "questionable" outlet of another device to see whether it is working.

In some cases, the plate set is still under repair, and it is powered by a stationary cable hidden in the wall in this situation has no outlet. Then you should check switchboard. Modern instruments of this type are located together with the meter and have multiple switches for supplying current in different parts of the apartment. Thus, the jump voltage "fly tube" is not in all the rooms, and otsenivaetsya one or two lever. If some of the switches are in the wrong position, you should correct the situation and check again the operation of the cooker.

Maybe during the initial inspection it was found that with the electricity in the apartment everything is in order. Then the failure of the appliance could be for the following reasons: bad power switch; burned out heating element; wire the power supply moved inside the device. The correction of these faults should instruct the master as to see all the contacts, elements of the mechanism and, moreover, to disassemble the stove, not being a specialist, it is impractical and even dangerous.

Additional breakage

The appliance may simply not work lights, creating the illusion that it is off. The bulb, which equip such devices, though to carry the load better than usual, but still not eternal, and must be timely replaced. Test the heat by feeling heat coming from burners, or by placing one of them in a pan with a small amount of water.

At malfunction of the power switch or the breakage of one of the spirals of the heating plate can seem broken because the heating is much weaker than necessary. This problem is also solved only with the participation of a specialist.
