Probable Causes of Inconsistent Heat

When a stove can’t maintain temperature, it is seen through how inconsistently it distributes heat. Now, this could be due to the heating element. It may fail to generate sufficient heat in real time, and thus leading to an obvious fluctuation in temperature. The cause could also be in the source of power. Fluctuations in voltage for electric stoves can cause inconsistent heating. The same applies to gas stoves. In addition to the heating element and the source of power, sensors play a role too.

All modern stoves tend to have electronic controls. The electrical features can be regulated by sensors. There are touch-based sensors, heat sensors, among others. If the heat sensor malfunctions, then your stove can’t maintain temperature since it is the job of the sensor to regulate the temperature. If it cannot record a dip or a spike, then it cannot trigger the heating element accordingly.


There could also be issues with the control board. Poor or faulty wiring, malfunctioning mechanical parts, electronic and electrical components not working as intended, and lack of calibration can also potentially be the reasons why your stove can’t maintain temperature. The only way to be sure is to conduct a thorough diagnosis of the appliance.

Our technicians inspect stoves extensively. No presumptions are made without doing so, nor do we rule out any possibilities. Only an exhaustive testing of every crucial feature can reveal the actual cause, and we know that. Our team is also aware that there may be multiple factors involved in the malfunction. Factors that others may overlook during the inspection, may leave the actual problem unsolved. Which can easily reappear in the form of another malfunction.
