There are few things in life more frustrating than getting home, preparing the dinner that you have been looking forward to all day, only to find that your oven, or more specifically, your grill has stopped working.

There are a number of reasons as to why your grill might have packed up suddenly. Luckily troubleshooting your grill is not a very complicated task. When troubleshooting your grill, it is important that you can correctly identify the problems and understand how to repair the issues.   We've put together this guide to help you figure out why your grill is not heating up, usually it's because there's a fault part that needs replacing. 

What to check if your grill is not heating up: 


  1. Is anything working on the oven appliance at all?
  2. Are the hobs working? 
  3. Does the main oven work? 
  4. Is your oven fan running? 
  5. Is the oven lamp running? 
  6. Does your temperature light come one?


Once you have answered yes to all the questions above then we can be certain that it is either one of two possible issues:

Loose Connection

If your cookers grill has broken down, then it could mean that the connection to the heating system has become lose. To check this, firstly make sure you have disconnected the electricity and gas supply to your cooker. You will then need to pull your cooker out to access the electrical components located at back of your cooker, remove the access panelling and from there you should be able to locate the wire that is not connected properly. If you cannot identify the issue, then you will need to call out an electrician, they will be able to identify the issue or, in the worst case scenario, replace your whole grill system.

Heating Element is broken

The most common cause of grills not heating up is because the element has somehow become damaged. By unscrewing the heating element, you will be able to conduct a visual examination of you element to access the damage.
