There are loads of benefits from cooking using a ceramic hob, but like with most things, there are of course a number of possible faults that can happen. We've put together a guide on how to combat the common faults with ceramic hobs so that you can go back to enjoying the benefits or this appliance.
Hopefully, if you've come into contact with a common ceramic hob fault, this advice will do the trick:
My ceramic hob won't turn on
If your ceramic hob won't turn on it's very likely that you have a faulty hob element. This is the part of your cooker that heats up your ceramic hob so if it becomes faulty it's important that you replace it. We have a huge selection of hob elements for a range of models and manufacturers, see our replacement parts here. Once you have your replacement you can follow this guide to replace it yourself.
My ceramic hob is stained
It can be annoying when your hob gets stained - if you've tried a damp cloth and the stain isn't budging you may begin to worry that it's there for good. It's unlikely you won't be able to remove the stain with the right product, just make sure it's suitable for use on ceramic glass hobs. You may want to use this degreasing agent for ceramic hobs or this ceramic hob cleaner to get rid of any tough stains.
Corrosive damage to glass
Although most stains have a simple solution, others can do your hob some real damage. When cooking with high sugar or salt ingredients such as jam, anything spilled on the hob should be removed immediately. This will prevent the liquid from doing any corrosive damage. If this does happen the only way to repair the hob is to replace the glass.
Capable of smashing
Your ceramic hob is strong, but glass is still glass. Although you should be able to use your ceramic hob risking only a couple of scratches from pots and pans, you should be careful not to drop anything heavy directly onto the hob. Again there is no easy fix if this happens, you'll have to look into a replacement ceramic hob glass if yours smashes.

There's nothing worse than preparing to make a home-cooked meal and realising a component of your cooker isn't working. If you've gone to use your gas hob and found the ignition keeps clicking rather than igniting, this can really halt your cooking process.
Unless you're a cooker expert (no need to feel ashamed, we can't all be cooker experts) you may not know why this is happening or how to fix it. Luckily, we are here to help (cooker experts have these responsibilities) and can point you in the right direction if your gas hob ignition keeps clicking.
If your gas hob ignition keeps clicking the replacement part you need will most likely be a electrode.
The electrode is the part of your cooker that transfers power to light your ignition that allows you to cook your meals. If your electrode is faulty, a flame will not ignite and you will instead be met with that annoying click, click, clicking noise you are trying to fix.
Luckily, here at Cooker Spare Parts, we have a great selection of electrode replacements that will fix the problem in no time. Before ordering your replacement part we strongly recommend making sure it is compatible with your cooker. Our website allows you to do this easily, you'll just need your cooker model and manufacturer. Once you have these you can use the filters to narrow down the results and find the part that best suits your appliance.
If you're still unsure about why your gas hob ignition keeps clicking, or need help to find a suitable replacement for your cooker we can help. Feel free to get in touch with our cooker specialists with your oven query, we are more than happy to be of assistance. Contact us today.
Is there anything more frustrating than a cooker which is heating slowly? You leave it to pre-heat for 20 minutes, but alas, it's still not at the desired temperature when you come to place your food in the oven! If you're experiencing this trouble with your gas oven, we're here to help you resolve this issue.
Why is my gas oven heating slowly?
If your gas oven takes a little while to reach the temperature you've set it at, there's most likely an internal issue with your cooker. Here's a look at a few reasons your gas oven may be heating slowly.
The thermostat in your gas oven is the cooker part which controls the amount of gas within the oven. This allows the oven to reach a certain temperature and not heat up any further as the gas valve then closes. If your gas oven thermostat is faulty, it may not allow enough gas into the oven cavity for it to heat up properly.

Your gas oven igniter is responsible for releasing the flow of gas to your cooker which works to heat it up. If your ignitor is broken, the gas will not be able to fill your oven and the valve will not be able to release any gas. If you think this could be why your gas oven is heating slowly, simply replace your igniter and see if this helps the problem!

Your gas oven may be heating slowly due to a broken gas safety valve. If the gas safety valve is getting stuck or not opening up properly, this could lead to your cooker heating slowly and even getting too hot. This is a more serious issue than the aforementioned problems and you should call a professional or your gas company right away if you smell any gas near your cooker.

Unevenly cooked meals
If you have a fan assisted oven that suddenly stops cooking your food evenly it can be very frustrating trying to cook something properly.
Solution: The oven fan is what pushes the heat around your oven evenly, replacing a busted oven fan will help it cook your food evenly once more! See our oven fan replacements.
Door won't close properly
Your oven will struggle to heat up and stay warm with a loose door. This can happen after years of opening and close your oven with a bit too much force.
Solution: If your oven door is hanging off, or is too stiff you probably have a problem with your oven door hinges or the door pin/catch.
Oven keeps overheating
If you keep finding that your food is coming out a bit more... crisp than you had intended, you may find that it really isn't to do with your culinary skills after all.
Solution: It may be that your thermostat is no longer able to read the temperature of the oven which is why it keeps heating up. Find replacement oven thermostats here.
