Over time, heavy use of a particular burner can cause its coils to become damaged. Heavy use can cause coils to warp, bubble, and even crack. Unfortunately, damaged coils cannot be repaired, and will have to be replaced as the damage will only get worse eventually leading the coil to cease to function altogether.
You Can’t Control the Burner’s Temperature
Another sign that you may be in need of electric cooktop repair is if you cannot control the temperature of your stove’s burner(s). You may find that suddenly one or more of your burners does not get hot enough, gets too hot, or turns on at a certain temperature that can’t be adjusted. This is likely a sign of the failure of an internal part in your stove. While such parts can easily be replaced, it is important to do so as soon as possible as waiting could lead to the failure of further, costlier, components in your stove.
