Electric or Gas? Why your stove has stopped working...
Whether you have an electric Hob or a Gas Burning Stove, the inconvenience with a fault is the same. We can identify some of the common issues associated with both, but you should always get a professional to double check. Never try and fix a gas appliance yourself as the outcome could be fatal.
Unlike the gas stove, an electric induction hob relies on electronic circuitry and complex heating components to heat an element within the hotplate to extreme temperatures. As a result, the likelihood of an electric stove failing is far superior to the gas alternatives.
In our experience, there are 4 main problems that occur with electric cooktops. The first and most common is power failure or circuit breakers tripping. Due to the harsh electronic load required to heat up and electric hob, they have many fail safes in place to stop overheating and minimise the risk of fire. If one or more of this internal components becomes damaged, develops a fault, or if there is too much electronic load on the same circuit, the unit will automatically trip the breaker to avoid further damage or injury.
You may also find that the cooker plates don’t heat up. One of the most common reasons why this may happen is down to the heating element itself and in some form or another may have shorted, become broken or burned out. Check for signs of burning or distortion, but in any case, it will need to be replaced by a certified expert.
Hotplate temperature inconsistencies are another common fault with modern electric induction hobs and cooktops. This is almost always down to damaged connections or a faulty thermostat, of which you will need to be replace in order to resume normal function.
Coking on gas takes a literal meaning when preparing meals with a gas stove. They are certainly more efficient, hold a better and more consistent heat and will still work during power outages and load shedding in Cape Town. That being said, problems can and do still arise with gas stoves.
Most faults with a Gas Stove require little input from a technician since there are no electronic parts to contend with, however, due the obvious risk involved when dealing with gas, you should never attempt any repair work yourself and leave it to a certified gas safe technician.
Most commonly, we get inquiries regarding weak burner flame. This is usually caused by a blockage in the pipe, too little gas or too little air getting to the burner openings and the air flow and or gas flow meters will need to be adjusted accordingly. This issue can also cause a noisy surface burner flame.

Although not that common in South Africa, some people do tend to like the traditional feel of a wood burning stove. There isnt much that can go wrong with these and they should give you many years of trouble free heating.
If you are experiencing a problem, its usually to do with some form of blockage. Air needs to draw into your Wood Burning Stove in order for the flame to stay strong and provide the heat. Without air, these units will simply not keep the wood alight for more than a few minutes. We are happy to inspect the air vents, induction hoses and chimney to make sure they are clear and clean.
