Electric stove not heating up?
Hello everyone. I have an issue with my electric stove not heating up. As you can see from the photo, the one hob (with the pan on) is fine, but the one at the top right is not, even though I've turned it up to 5. Not sure how to deal with this? Would prefer a DIY fix rather than call an electrician out for 1 hob out of 4. Let me know!

Element is burned out Needs Appliance Repair technician rather than a Sparky
You'll need to pull the stove out from the wall so you can look at the wiring on the back panel of the stove. Here's a link that may provide you some info. Since you're working with electricity, be sure to be very careful.
With some electric stove tops it is possible a wire came loose. I would pull the stove out, unplug it and do some investigating.
It could be the wiring for that burner. It can be repaired/replaced. Here's a link:
It could be a loose wire or the heating element has gone up.
You could also call the company and they will help you troubleshoot the problem.
Have the make and model numbers ready.
Could be the element is shot. The knob control is shot. Check out https://www.repairclinic.com/. They have repair guides, schematics, and sell parts. Just put on your make, model number. Otherwise you would need an appliance repairman not an electrician.
This sounds like an issue that needs an appliance repair person.
time to call an appliance repair person to check to see if an element is burned out or what you could also call the mfg. of the stove and ask them for help
Either the heating element is burned out or there is a loose wire. Call Repair Clinic and they can help you find the part you need to fix it. And give you instructions on how to fix the problem.
I would call a pro. This could be a complex issue, that may involve computer programming and wiring, on a 220v appliance, it always require a pro for safety. This is not a DIY project, as improper fixes could have devastating repercussions.
Like Kim, I'd call a pro so as to avoid doing any damage. I know that's not what you were hoping to hear but safety first.
Check for loose or burnt wiring - The stovetop will need to be lifted up to check the wiring and connectors for damage.
