Fungerer ikke induksjonstoppen? What can be the causes
Before seeing the reasons why an induksjonstoppen fungerer ikke, den is good to understand how induction cookers work.
Hvordan fungerer en induksjonstopp?
Firing is guaranteed by the coils located under the keramisk glassplate. The electrical energy that powers the coils generates a magnetic field that heats the pots.
In this way an induksjonstopp can guarantee an excellent efficiency, Om 90%, while a traditional gas cooker has an efficiency of 40%, as a good part of the heat produced is dispersed into the environment.
I tillegg, cooking with an induction hob is faster and more precise, because the heat spreads evenly over the pan. Deretter, the absence of flames avoids the risks of any gas leaks. 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, Det kan skje at berøringsgjenkjenning av induksjonstoppen ikke fungerer på grunn av væsker eller stoffer som har skitne tastaturet du styrer kjøkkenet med.
For å løse dette problemet, just clean the hob with special detergents and a microfibre cloth. It may also happen that the induksjonstoppen gjenkjenner ikke gryten. Å lage mat på en induksjonstopp, faktisk, det er nødvendig å bruke emaljert jern, støpejern, og gryter og panner i rustfritt stål. De i keramikk eller terrakotta bør unngås.
Induksjonstoppen blir ikke varm
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:
Before working on the appliance, make sure it is disconnected from the mains.
Danger of electrocution.
Bruk egnede hansker,
Brukte gryter og panner er ikke egnet
Hvis du bruker gryter og panner i aluminium, 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.
For å finne ut om gryter og panner er kompatible med induksjonstopper, plasser en magnet på den nedre enden av pannen: hvis det fester seg, de skal være kompatible.
Advarsel: 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, for eksempel, six cooking zones operating independently (ved maksimal effekt), 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, ved å sette en sone til maksimal effekt, den andre komfyren som deler det samme elektroniske kortet vil ikke kunne gjøre det samme og vil være mindre kraftig.
Det er også kokeplater der kokesonene fungerer i perfekt harmoni: alle brennerne er koblet til en enkelt kraftenhet, og bare en av komfyrene kan derfor operere med maksimal effekt.
Koketoppen er feil konfigurert
You need to know that some hobs can be programmed to operate from 2,500 watts (16 ampere) til 7,200 watts. 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
To function optimally, induction hobs must be powered by the correct electrical voltage, typically 230 volt. Some stoves will not work properly if the voltage is below 210 volt, 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 volt (eller mindre), this is the reason why the induction cooker does not heat enough. I dette tilfellet, we recommend that you consult your electricity supplier.
The electrical clamp is not tightened properly
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. I dette tilfellet, tighten the visible union screws and try again.
If your stove is new and only two of the four cooking zones work, we recommend checking that the wiring diagram is correct as the appliance may have been connected incorrectly.
Advice It is
better not to always use the same cooking zone but to make them work in rotation; if the same burner is always used, its coil could overheat and deteriorate rapidly.
The electronic board is faulty
De electronic board undergoes a lot of stress during cooking. Over time, this could lead to a loss of stamina. I dette tilfellet, the hob will indicate an error code on the display and will only operate at low power, therefore at temperatures that are not sufficient to heat a pot. If you have difficulty diagnosing this component, ikke nøl med å kontakte vår kundeservice eller en tekniker autorisert av produsenten av apparatet.
