Gourmia Air Fryer Stopped Working!
Do your Gourmia air fryer stopped working? Then you are in the right place. Gourmia is a very popular brand among many home cooks with its stylish look and kind operating system.
However, any problem regarding the mechanical and electrical parts can occur at any time, and here are those at a glance with a brief detail on how to resolve those –
Why Is Your Gourmia Air Fryer Stopped Working & What To Do?
- Not plugged in or socket malfunctioning
The Gourmia electric air fryer comes with top-quality parts and is highly unlikely to have problems with those parts. Most of the time, the issue lies with the power socket. Either the cable is not properly in the socket, or the socket itself is faulty.
In that case, checking for a loose connection with the socket is the option, as also checking the socket itself. Call your electrician and change the power outlet if the problem is with the socket.
2. Damaged cable
The cable helps the power travel from the power outlet to the appliance allowing it to start, perform, and cook your favorite food. However, it is also one of the areas where we rarely check for damage or broken connections.
If your Gourmia air fryer stops working, check the cable for any damaged or broken areas. If so, call their support to change the device or take it for repairs.
3. Blown fuse
If the cable and outlet are fine, it is probably the fuse. In that case, the only option is to replace the fuse.
4. Out-of-place basket or overflow basket
The air fryer will not start or stop working if the basket is not in place. It can happen due to two reasons. One, the clip is bent and not locked to the basket. Take a screwdriver, bend the pin back, and check if it clicks when you put it in the basket.
Two, the basket has too much food. The only option, in that case, is to take some out and put it inside the appliance.
Gourmia Air Fryer Not Working!
If your Gourmia air fryer is not working, we first recommend going through the Gourmia air fryer user guide on how to troubleshoot the device. But how will you know the problem and what to look for in the Gourmia air fryer user manual?
Here are the possible causes for your Gourmia air fryer not working and how to solve it –
|Technical defects||If it is neither the cable nor the power socket, it is probably an internal issue like malfunctioning the circuit board. In that case, contacting their support should be your first move.|
|Dirty or loose connection||Over time after using the appliance for many years, the connection inside also catches dirt and debris. That disrupts the smooth flow of the system. To resolve that, take a small brush, clean all the areas, and reconnect the connections.|
Gourmia Air Fryer Not Heating Up!
An air fryer uses the hot air from the heating element to cook the food in the basket without using any oil. It is a healthier choice for many as now people are looking for an appliance that will minimize their oil intake. What if your Gourmia air fryer not heating up?
There are several reasons why the Gourmia air fryer is not heating up and cooking the food.
Here are those reasons and how you can solve them –
- Defected heating element
If the heating element part stops working, no matter how fast the fan goes, the appliance will not cook the food inside. That is because the fan circulates the hot air from that part inside to cook the food.
Open up the PCB and check for any loose wiring or burnt-out connection leading to the heating element. One option in your hand is to put another layer of copper over the burnt area. If that does not work, the part is gone, and you must replace it ASAP.
2. The air fryer is not plugged in:
You probably have forgotten to plug the air fryer with the power source, which is why your Gourmia air fryer is not heating up. If so, check it and ensure you have plugged the air fryer into the power source.
3. Faulty wall outlet:
Check the wall outlet where you have plugged your air fryer and make sure the wall outlet is okay. If the wall outlet is not okay, it will not supply power to the air fryer, and the air fryer will not heat. So check your wall outlet and make sure it is functioning.
4. Faulty power cord:
Another thing is that if your Gourmia air fryer power cable becomes faulty, the air fryer will not heat up. So check the power cable and make sure it is okay. If the power cable becomes faulty, change it as soon as possible. You will find the replacement power cable in the online marketplaces.

6. Cooking time not set:
Another thing is the cooking timer. Make sure you have set the cooking timer. If you don’t set it, your Gourmia air fryer will not heat up.
7. Overloaded basket:
Check the amount of food recipes in the air fryer basket and make sure the basket is not overloaded with food recipes. If the air fryer basket is overloaded, it will not heat, even if it does not work properly.
8. Missing basket:
Check you have placed the air fryer basket in the air fryer because sometimes it may be the cause of the air fryer not heating or even not working.
9. Faulty thermal fuse:
Your Gourmia air fryer has thermal fuses in it for safety purposes. If the thermal fuse becomes blown or broken, your Gourmia air fryer heating element will not work, and the air fryer will not heat up. So check the thermal fuse of your air fryer and make sure it is okay. Read your Gourmia air fryer user manual to learn everything about the thermal fuse of your air fryer.
10. Broken control board:
Check your Gourmia air fryer’s control board and ensure it is working properly. If the control board is not working, it will not transmit the instructions to the motherboard of the air fryer resulting in your Gourmia air fryer will not work.
11. Faulty air fryer fan:
The fan of your Gourmia air fryer circulates the hot air inside the air fryer. If the air fryer fan is not working properly, the air fryer will not be heating up. So make sure the air fryer fan is working properly.

If you think your air fryer has any internal issues, contact the Gourmia customer service team for assistance or take it to the nearest electric kitchen appliance repair shop to fix the air fryer by a qualified technician.
14. Memory defect
Sometimes, the device will not start the healing process due to corrupted memory. One way to recognize that issue is by looking at the screen and checking if it shows all the correct data.
If not, reset the air fryer and check if the data, such as the temp, time, and setting, is correct and try again.
15. The air fryer door
The door or the basket is very important as if that is not placed the machine properly will not work. So, check if the door clicks when you place it in and do not overflow it with excess food.
Gourmia Air Fryer Display Not Working!
The Gourmia digital air fryer comes with an LED screen, allowing you to operate the appliance, including all its settings and functions. Its display lets you touch and choose your preferred food item’s desired function.

We recommend first going through the Gourmia air fryer instruction manual, which will provide what to do when the display malfunctions. Moreover, here is a list of all the possible reasons why it happens and how to resolve it –
- Dirty screen
The dirt, debris, and sweat can disrupt the touch function and prevent it; use a damp cloth to clean the display and then wipe it with a dry towel.

Gourmia Air Fryer Making Loud Noise!
No one likes it when a kitchen appliance starts making loud noises. That is a sign that something is wrong or a part of the device is about to shut off permanently.
Here is how –
- Moving components
There are many small parts inside the air fryer; even the tiniest loose part can be behind the loud noises you hear while using the device.
So, here is what you can do –
- Turn off the machine and open it up by removing the screws holding the back part of the device.
- Now, check all the components to see if that is moving or looks loose from their place.
- If so, then push it back in place. However, if the element is broken from its place, then take it in for repairs.
- Check the fan
Most of the culprits behind the loud noise are the fan themselves. It rattles if it has a loose connection or is coming off the holding point.
In that case, you can open up the appliance and push the fan. If that does not work, the component is faulty and needs repairs.
Gourmia Air Fryer Beeping!
If your Gourmia air fryer beeping, that doesn’t mean that it has a problem; the most common reason is timing. Suppose you have set a time to cook something inside, and the time is over. That’s when the air fryer will start beeping to stop the cooking. If you don’t turn off the fryer after the beep, the beep will be more frequent and faster.
Another reason for the Gourmia air fryer beep is the machine is preheating, and the heat is over the range. You must stop and cancel the settings to prevent excessive preheating and beeps.
However, it is easy to restart the air fryer, or canceling the heating process is quite easy. No matter what the matter is, the beeps won’t spoil the air fryer, but they may hinder your work. So, it is better to solve the beeps as soon as possible.
Gourmia Air Fryer Timer Not Working!
Another common problem consumers face with a Gourmia air fryer is that the timer may sometimes not work. Several reasons can cause the timer not to work; for example, too much heat can lead the timer to malfunction.
However, a button problem or error in the sensor can also cause the timer not to work, but the most common problem occurs when there is a problem with the electricity supply. Sometimes, there may be a voltage up-down, and sometimes, there may be a problem with the wire or plug.
If you face such problems, you should wait for a little until the voltage gets normal and check if the timer works after that or not. If the timer works and the countdown begins, your Gourmia air fryer has no problem. On the contrary, you can unplug the fryer for at least 3 minutes and plug it in again.
But if there is no countdown, you have to inform customer care and get professional help from the nearest corner around you. You can even replace the whole air fryer with a new one if the problem is during the warranty period.
