Experiencing Issues When Turning Off Gourmia Air Fryer ( Reasons & Solutions ):

There are plenty of issues that may lead to an unsmooth process of turning off the air fryer’s digital gourmia.

These include:

  • Faulty stop/cancel button
  • Power issues
  • Faulty power cord
  • Faulty Device

Faulty Stop/cancel Button:

The stop/cancel tab may stop functioning due to plenty of reasons. This can make the turning-off process quite challenging. 

This could be due

Faulty Touchscreen: Sometimes, the whole touchscreen gets frozen. The buttons won’t respond and the unit won’t turn off no matter how many times you press them

This faulty touch display can be due to Damaged switch membrane, faulty PCB or grease or oil that has badly accumulated and frozen the touch buttons. If the issue is due to a faulty PCB or mylar membrane, then you need to replace them with a new one. If the issue is due to dirt, then use a damp cloth to wipe the exterior and remove grease and stains. 

Worn-out buttons: Sometimes, the control panel buttons get damaged, stuck or broken. If it’s just one button or knob, then instead of replacing the whole panel, you just need to replace that one specific button to resume functionality.

Short-circuit: Unstable power voltages can result in short circuits. The unit has a thermal fuse that acts as a voltage regular. A sudden spike and the fuse blows to protect the internal components from melting.This leads to a short circuit of the unit and the appliance wont respond. To deal with this problem, you need to ensure a stable voltage supply and replace the blown-out thermal fuse with a new one.

Loose Terminals: Sometimes, the stop/cancel buttons have loose terminals. This leads to mute buttons. To deal with this, you can approach an electrician to tighten the loosened button terminals to resume functioning.

Bug: Sometimes, a bug freezes the unit control buttons. The control panel buttons get stuck and won’t operate. To deal with this bug, you need to force reset the unit. For this, unplug the unit by directly pulling out the plug from the power socket. After waiting for a few minutes, replug the unit. This simple process will flush out the bug and hence reactivate the control buttons’ functions.

Power Issues:

Sometimes,  the issue lies in your house’s main power circuit. Unstable power leads to constant tripping of circuit breakers and hence the unit isn’t able to power up properly. Therefore, it’s on and off tabs won’t work.Your power socket may be causing the problem as well. Unstable voltages result in the built-in thermal fuse to blow up. This disrupts the normal circuitry and the connection to the internal components of the unit is cut off. This is done to protect the unit from damage. 

To deal with the issue, first check if the power socket is functional or not. You can use a multimeter to check for its functionality. Then if there is some issue, you can plug the appliance into another socket. 

Faulty Power Cord:

Sometimes, the power cord is broken or its outer covering gets melted due to heat. This results in power leakage. Hence, no sufficient power can reach the main unit to operate. This can cause the stop/cancel button to become non-functional. You can easily spot a faulty cable. Moreover, when you turn on the appliance, the unit will turn on and off by itself due to power loss. This will affect the unit’s performance and result in digital errors.The best solution is to replace the power cord with a new one to provide sufficient power flow to the unit for smooth gourmia air fryer works.

Faulty Device:

If your appliance has some mechin3 or some technical fault, then turning off gourmia becomes an issue. A simple stop tab won’t work until you force-stop the unit by directly unplugging the appliance from the power source. If your appliance is new, then your unit might have a warranty. You can show it to technical support for diagnosis and repair.If your gourmia air fryer is old, maybe its malfunction is due to wear and tear. You can still show it to some technician and repair it. 

If your gourmia air fryer is very old, then its malfunction may be due to its slowly losing function. In this scenario, purchasing or replacing its parts is very difficult. The best solution is to purchase a new air fryer.
