Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, it does indeed sound like the element has failed. It's commonplace.The igniters for the gas hob failing is more odd, but have you checked the MCB for the cooker circuit?
Yes - more properly called the consumer unit. In the old days it was called a fuse box :-)It should be near the electricity meter.
OK. You'll have to do some dismantling to find out the cause of each fault. There might be a common cause, but it's pointless me speculating as it won't change the fact that you (or someone) will need to do the hands on work,
You wanted me to speculate? As I said, there's no value in that. That doesn't mean that I can't speculate, but decades of experience in appliance engineering has led me to understand how pointless it is, when the problem still needs to be investigated. I'm giving you the qualified advice that everybody gets on this site.I do understand that you want to make a repair/replace decision, but you'll have to weigh up whether spending around £80 on a callout to an appliance engineer is worthwhile. I don't know how much your range has cost you during its 7 year lifetime, but if £80 is all it costs you then it has been cheap to maintain.
