Burst Capacitor Found In Butterfly Induction Cooker
Brand and model Number: Butterfly Induction Cooker Premium
Complaint reported: Dead
Troubleshooting and rectification done: Opened and cleaned set. Observed that the Black large filter capacitor was burst. Looked for any more visibly defective components. Did not find any. Replaced that cap, along with the rest of the electrolytic caps and another Black large capacitor in the AC input line. Replaced the press-to-on button switches as these were intermittent. Did dry solder patch up on the two boards. Powered on and found the IC (Induction Cooker) to be working.
Fit it back, and used it in my kitchen a few times for a couple of days before giving delivery to the customer. Satisfaction, no doubt, did not hesitate to jump into its bag!
Here are a few pictures (Sorry, forgot to click the defective components and IC in working condition):
