Hoover Cooktops - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
My electric Bosh cooktop is humming when the element heats up. Is this normal?
If the noise is emitting from the element the most likely cause is a bad connection where the element plugs into the receptacle. You are likely hearing the voltage/current sparking/arcing between the terminals of the heating element and the prongs inside the element receptacle. When this happen it will require replacing the receptacle and the element because it will burn off the contact points of where the two touches to make the connection. If you just replace the element and not the receptacle too, it can cause the terminals on the new element to burn out. Perhaps get a qualified person to have a look at it - it just may need a service...
