Types of Cooktop

When it’s time to replace your old, worn-out cooktop, there are several options to consider. The type of cooktop you choose can impact your cooking experience, maintenance needs, and repair costs down the line. Our experts at ApplianceFix are familiar with all the major cooktop types and can help you pick the right one for your kitchen and cooking style.

Gas Cooktops

Gas cooktops utilize natural gas or propane to produce a flame for cooking. This allows for responsive, precise temperature control.

Open Burners

Open gas burners are positioned on top of the cooktop surface. This gives you flexibility in cookware positioning and makes them great for larger pots and pans. However, spills can more easily get into the burner area.

Sealed Burners

Sealed gas burners are surrounded by a cover to better contain heat and spills. This makes cleaning up easier, though cookware size is more restricted. Sealed burner cooktops tend to cost more upfront.

Electric Cooktops

Electric cooktops use coil heating elements or radiant heating below the surface to heat pots and pans. While electric cooktops can be slower to heat up initially, their heat is very consistent for simmering or holding at a steady temperature.

Coil Cooktops

Exposed electric coils allow you to freely position cookware. However, coil cooktops can be less durable over time, and the coils themselves can be difficult to clean.

Smooth-Top Cooktops

With radiant heating below a smooth glass-ceramic surface, these cooktops have a seamless, modern look. However repairs tend to be more difficult and expensive.

Induction Cooktops

Induction cooktops use magnetic energy to induce a current in compatible cookware, instantly heating pans. This makes them very fast, energy-efficient, and cool-to-the-touch for safety. But they only work with induction-ready cookware.

No matter which cooktop type you choose, the ApplianceFix service team can provide expert installation, repairs, and maintenance to keep it running smoothly. Contact us today to learn more!

Common Problems Cooktop

Cooktops are put through a lot of wear and tear during daily meal prep. Over time, issues can arise that affect cooking performance or create safety hazards. At [Company], our experienced technicians have repaired every cooktop problem imaginable. Here are some of the most common cooktop repairs we perform.

Gas Cooktop Issues

Gas cooktops rely on a precise gas-to-air ratio for proper combustion. Disruptions in airflow or ignition can lead to problems.

Ignition Failures

If your gas burners won’t light or take several tries to ignite, the problem is likely with the igniter itself. The igniter may just need cleaning, but worn-out igniters will require replacement.

Uneven Heating

If your cooktop’s flames are burning unevenly, causing hot and cold spots, the burner ports have likely become clogged. Our experts can disassemble the burners for a thorough deep clean.

Gas Leaks

A dangerous gas leak can happen if a gas line is disconnected or ruptured. If you ever smell gas, shut off the cooktop immediately and call for emergency service. Never take chances with a potential gas leak.

Electric Cooktop Problems

Electric cooktops have fewer combustible risks, but are prone to mechanical and heating issues over time.

Hot Spots

If your electric coils or radiant elements produce intense hot spots that burn food, replacement is likely needed. The heating elements have worn unevenly.

Faulty Controls

From broken knobs to unresponsive touchpads, worn controls make the cooktop difficult to operate. Our techs can replace any faulty knobs, switches, or control boards.

Damaged Cooktop Glass

Deep scratches or cracks in the glass-ceramic cooktop surface necessitate a full cooktop replacement. Cosmetic damage also risks further cracking.

Before You Call Us

While some appliance issues definitely require a repair pro, there are a few basic troubleshooting steps you can try yourself before calling for service. This may fix the problem and save you time and money.

Reset the Appliance

Unplug the appliance from power, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in. This resets the device and can resolve electronic glitches.

Check Connections

Make sure cords and hoses are securely attached. A loose connection could disrupt power or water flow. Tighten up any loose hoses or cords.

Clean Filters

For refrigerators, dishwashers, and other appliances with filters – clean or replace clogged filters. Debris buildup impairs performance.

Double Check Settings

Confirm all controls are set properly, like temperature dials or cycle modes. Incorrect settings can mimic broken appliances.

Let It Cool Off

If an appliance is overheating, switch it off and allow it to fully cool for 30 minutes before restarting.

If your appliance problem persists after trying these steps, don’t hesitate to call our experts. We have the technical skills to diagnose and repair any appliance issue. But trying these basic steps first may reveal a quick fix.
