Common Induction Hob Problems

Common Induction Hob Problems

If you're having induction hob problems, you've come to the right place. Whether you've got inconsistent heating zones, the hob is making strange noises, or there's no power to the hob, we're here to help. Some problems can be easily solved on your own with a few tools, but others may require the work of a professional.

Please bear in mind that this article is meant as a basic guide to help with induction hob fault finding, and we would not advise carrying out any in depth repair work yourself. Below is a list of the most common problems that can occur on an induction hob to help identify what may be wrong.

Heating zone won’t work

If your pans don't seem to be heating up, it may be that you are using the wrong type of pan. They need to be made from a magnetic material in order to work correctly. If you have the right pans, then the induction unit may have failed, and it will need to be replaced.

Booster function decreases small hob ring power

This is completely normal. Because each of the hob's rings share power, when you use the booster function on a particular ring, the power of the other rings is decreased.

Induction hob making noise

It is normal to hear a low-level noise from the internal fan of an induction hob. However, if your induction hob is making noise that is particularly loud, then there may be an issue with the fan, and we'd recommend seeking professional help.

No power to hob

If your hob isn't working at all, then you've likely got a problem with the power board that needs fixed or replacing. This is quite in-depth work and we would suggest hiring a professional.
