Troubleshooting Guide: Induction cooker Burner Not Working? Here's What to Do!

Induction cookers have become a popular choice for their efficiency and precision in cooking. However, like any appliance, they may encounter issues from time to time. One common problem users face is when an induction cooker burner refuses to work. If you're experiencing this frustration, fear not! In this blog, we'll guide you through a step-by-step troubleshooting process to identify and resolve the issue.

Check Power Supply

  • 1️⃣Ensure that the induction cooker is properly plugged into a functioning power outlet.
  • 2️⃣Confirm that the circuit breaker hasn't tripped. If it has, reset it and try turning on the cooker again.

Verify Pan Compatibility

  • 1️⃣Induction cookers require cookware with a magnetic base. Check if the pan you are using is induction-compatible.
  • 2️⃣Place a magnet on the bottom of the pan; if it sticks, your cookware is suitable.

Test with Another Pan

  • 1️⃣Switch the non-working pan with a known working one to rule out the possibility of a faulty pan.

Power Cycling

  • 1️⃣Turn off the induction cooker and unplug it from the power source.
  • 2️⃣Wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in and turning it on. This can help reset the cooker's internal components.

Check if the child lock is activated

  • 1️⃣Press and hold until the lock indicator disappears 

Check the Mainboard 

  • 1️⃣Use a multimeter to individually check whether there is an AC voltage input of about 230V at the mainboard terminal post. If so, the mainboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Check for power board failure

  • 1️⃣Use a multimeter to check whether there is an AC voltage input of about 230V on the power terminals L-N of the power board. If there is an AC voltage input of about 230V on the mainboard terminals, the power board is faulty and needs to be replaced.


Check internal circuit fuse

  • 1️⃣Disassemble the crystallized glass and check whether the internal wiring is normal

In Conclusion

Dealing with a non-working induction cooker burner can be frustrating, but with systematic troubleshooting, many issues can be resolved at home. Always refer to your induction cooker's user manual for specific guidance and safety precautions.

If problems persist, don't hesitate to seek professional assistance. By following these steps, you'll increase the likelihood of restoring your induction cooker to its optimal functionality. Happy cooking!
