SOURCE: cook top "popping" noise

make sure the heater elements are properly nested into their respective electrical sockets. if they get loose, then the electrical contact can be intermittent and arc/spark a bit..

I was boiling water for potatoes on the Electrolux induction cooktop last night. Only using one of the five burners when I heard a "pop" sound and possibly a flash of light. Error code we have is EO


Hi Gail, I am happy to assist you!

It appears the main control has detected a faulty or error condition. "E0" should be followed by two more digits to indicate which error has occurred. Let's try turning electrical power supply off. It is necessary to wait roughly ten minutes to reset cook-top main controls. If resetting the power does not correct the issue or provides a new error code, at this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

Maytag electric cooktop popping breaker.


The problem is most likely in the element in one of the coils, if they are the tube type and look like pencil thick heating elements, they can develope a short circuit inside them. The actual heating wire is encased with ceramic filler and then put in that tube. The heating wire moves when it gets hot and can work its way to the case and cause a short. Unhook the power from the whole unit and use the meter to check the rersistance of the coils between the heating element and the case

The cooktop will not turn on. The little red light in the lower right corner of the touch panel is blinking. If one touches and holds it it does not turn on a burner per usual. The timer function works....


I'm going to assume this is a new installation, either way, it sounds as if you're only getting one leg of your 220v circuit, which wld run the timer and lights but not enough to power the burners. This is prly not something you shld try and repair yourself as a 220v circuit can cause some serious damage. At the least, you could first, TURN OFF THE BREAKER and then check the connections to the cooktop to make sure all connections are secure.

Thermador gas cooktop explosion


I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

Stove is tripping circuit breaker Two burners stopped working properly (only get slightly warm). Switched the coils to the other side and the other side is still working. Looked underneath and saw that...


if it is an old stove i would say have it serviced/checked over. if it is a newer stove i am guessing the circuit breaker predates it and is rated for the old stove therefore you will need to have a larger circuit breaker installed (by a licenced electrician)

Loud Pop, blown Breaker


Pull the unit away from the wall and inspect from rear. However, if all is fine, perhaps you simply overloaded the circuit that once. Were you running any other appliances (overhead microwave) at the same time?

first, disable power to cooktop. next, replace either the mangled burner or the entire unit (after initial inspection leads to a logical prognosis)...sorry.
