Why doesn't the induction hob work?

Is the induction hob not working? What can be the causes

Before seeing the reasons why an induction hob does not work, to is good to understand how induction cookers work.

How does an induction hob work?

Firing is guaranteed by the coils located under the staklokeramička ploča. The electrical energy that powers the coils generates a magnetic field that heats the pots.

In this way an indukcijska ploča za kuhanje can guarantee an excellent efficiency, oko 90%, while a traditional plinsko kuhalo has an efficiency of 40%, budući da se dobar dio proizvedene topline raspršuje u okoliš.

U Dodatku, kuhanje s indukcijskom pločom brže je i preciznije, because the heat spreads evenly over the pan. Zatim, the absence of flames avoids the risks of bilo kakvo curenje plina.Induction hobs offer many advantages, but like all appliances, they can be subject to breakdowns and malfunctions.

Why doesn't an induction hob work?

There can be several reasons why an induction hob does not turn on:

  • faulty power supply
  • hob clamps damaged or incorrectly connected
  • defective electrical board

In these cases, it is advisable to rely on a specialized technician who can verify any failure and carry out the appropriate operations to solve it.

Furthermore, it may happen that the touch recognition of the induction hob does not work due to liquids or substances that have dirty the keyboard with which you control the kitchen.

To solve this problem, just clean the hob with special detergents and a microfibre cloth. It may also happen that the induction hob does not recognize the pot. To cook on an induction hob, zapravo, it is necessary to use enameled iron, lijevano željezo, and stainless steel pots and pans. Those in ceramic or terracotta should be avoided.

 

The induction hob does not heat up

 

Are the cooking zones of the induction hob no longer cooking properly? Let's try to investigate the possible causes behind this problem.

POSSIBLE CAUSES OF THIS PROBLEM:

USED POTS AND PANS ARE NOT SUITABLE

 

THE POWER OF THE INDUCTION COOKER IS TOO LOW

 

THE HOB HAS BEEN CONFIGURED INCORRECTLY

 

THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS NOT UP TO STANDARD

 

THE ELECTRICAL CLAMP IS NOT TIGHTENED PROPERLY

 

THE ELECTRONIC BOARD IS FAULTY

 

ATTENTION
Before working on the appliance, make sure it is disconnected from the mains.
Danger of electrocution.
Wear suitable gloves,
cut hazard.

Used pots and pans are not suitable

If you use aluminum pots and pans, you should know that these are not suitable for induction cookers. For this type of appliance, it is preferable to prefer materials in cast iron or steel. It is in fact necessary that the pots have a relatively high ferrous content in order for them to heat up properly.

Tip
To find out if the pots and pans are compatible with induction hobs, place a magnet on the lower end of the pan: if it sticks, they should be compatible.

Warning: some stoves are more sensitive than others. For this reason, even if the tools have a specific symbol for induction, it is recommended to try them on the hob to verify that they are actually suitable.

The power of the induction cooker is too low

Each hob has a different power, which depends on the number of electronic boards it is equipped with: a hob can have, na primjer, six cooking zones operating independently (pri najvećoj snazi), since they have an individual electronic power unit.

On other cookers, the cooking zones work in pairs since there is only one electronic unit for every two burners. This means that, by setting one zone to maximum power, the other cooker that shares the same electronic board will not be able to do the same and will be less powerful.

There are also hobs where the cooking zones work in perfect harmony: all the burners are connected to a single power unit, and only one of the cookers can therefore operate at maximum power.

Buy a power board for the hob

The hob has been configured incorrectly

6

 

You need to know that some hobs can be programmed to operate from 2,500 vati (16 pojačala) do 7,200 vati. If you find that your appliance is heating too little, it may be that the hob you just bought has been configured with too low a power. To understand the power that has been established and/or modify it on the device, it is necessary to consult the instruction manual!

The electrical system is not up to standard

2

 

To function optimally, induction hobs must be powered by the correct electrical voltage, typically 230 volti. Some stoves will not work properly if the voltage is below 210 volti, as they do not heat up enough.

Very often this voltage problem occurs in winter since the system is stressed by domestic heating, consequently causing a significant voltage drop.

To check the voltage of the electrical system you can use a multimeter in voltmeter mode and measure the voltage present in the kitchen from any electrical outlet. Then place several pots on the stove and activate the cooking zones. If the voltage drops dramatically towards a value of 210 volti (ili manje), this is the reason why the induction cooker does not heat enough. U ovom slučaju, we recommend that you consult your electricity supplier.

The electrical clamp is not tightened properly

7

 

It may happen that the connection clamp on the hob or on the wall connection is not tightened correctly, causing only partial operation of the appliance. U ovom slučaju, tighten the visible union screws and try again.

If your stove is new and only two of the four cooking zones work, preporučujemo da provjerite je li shema ožičenja točna jer je uređaj možda pogrešno priključen.

Savjet Jeste
bolje je ne koristiti uvijek istu zonu za kuhanje, već ih natjerati da rade u rotaciji; if the same burner is always used, njegova bi se zavojnica mogla pregrijati i brzo pokvariti.

Elektronička ploča je neispravna

The elektronička ploča undergoes a lot of stress during cooking. Over time, this could lead to a loss of stamina. U ovom slučaju, ploča za kuhanje će na zaslonu prikazati kôd pogreške i raditi će samo pri maloj snazi, therefore at temperatures that are not sufficient to heat a pot. If you have difficulty diagnosing this component, do not hesitate to contact our customer service or a technician authorized by the manufacturer of the appliance.
