Best home electrical troubleshooting solutions
Modern technologists are developing at a crazy speed and getting smarter every year. It’s already difficult to imagine life without household appliances. They surround us everywhere and greatly simplify life. But sometimes, just a mere voltage surge is enough to make the device break down. What to do when household appliances crash? Turn to Howly and get the best solution to your problem! The following answers to frequently asked questions about troubleshooting electrical problems may also help you.
Why won't my oven turn on? Can I fix the problem?
If the electric oven, backlight, and indicators aren’t working, the problem most likely lies in the absence of current and relates to the socket, power cord, and oven power supply outlet. Check the elements for voltage to determine the specific cause of the breakdown. After that, you just need to repair or replace the damaged parts.
My electric stove stops heating. What to do?
First of all, check the socket, wire, and power plug for mechanical damage. Thoroughly clean the touch panel from accumulated dirt, as this reduces sensitivity. As a result, the heating unit doesn’t heat well.
As soon as you exclude external causes, disassemble the heating unit and proceed to the search for the faulty node. Start with a visual inspection of the electrical circuit (if there’s a break, solder the wire connection). Then test the entire circuit with a multimeter until you find a damaged block. Detected the problem? Contact Howly for further instructions. Our experts will also be happy to help you if you don't know how to test appliances with a multimeter.
How to fix an unresponsive air conditioner?
If you press the start button on the remote, but the air conditioner doesn’t react at all, check the following reasons for the problem:
- Absence of mains voltage
- You failed to connect the split system to a power source
- Broken remote or dead batteries
You can easily fix these problems yourself. Also, the air conditioner may turn off due to severe overheating of the outdoor unit. Indeed, prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause its malfunction. To prevent this from happening, consider a good location before installing a split system.
