  • One part of the ring on my electric hob is not heating up

    If one area of your hob isn’t heating up it is most likely something to do with the wire being damaged or broken. A repair expert can examine this by testing the element using a multimeter. Contact us to have your hob running like new in no time. 

  • Can I use my cracked electric hob?

    The short answer is no, a cracked electric hob can be very dangerous. They work by transferring heat from an electrical current up through the ceramic to the pan. The only thing that is protecting the electrical current is the glass so therefore as soon as the glass cracks electrical fires and other issues could happen.

  • Turning on my electric hob is tripping the electricity

    If your electric hob keeps tripping the electricity you may need to reset the fuse box. If this doesn’t work your electric hob may be faulty and will need replacing. Call Go Assist today to have a technician replace your faulty hob.

  • My E-symbol keeps flashing on the hob, what does this mean?

    On most electric hobs the ‘E’ symbolises a switch being continually pressed. You could try cleaning the hob to remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated that may be affecting the switch. If this doesn’t work, try resetting the electric hob at the wall. Alternatively, call a technician to repair your broken-down electric hob.
