Finding the time for a Cooker Service
A cooker service is always carried out by a trained technician from Gas Safe, who has the necessary skills and knowledge in the task at hand. The professional service pans across gas cookers, dual fuel cookers, range cookers, freestanding cookers, built-in cookers, gas hob installations and oven installations; this is followed by an opportunity for customers to ask any queries regarding the maintenance of their kitchen appliances.
A cooker service should essentially be carried out annually to ensure the appliance is in good working order and is safe to use, otherwise the cooker service should be undertaken immediately if an appliance isn’t working or if you are concerned that there is a gas leak. Having a cooker service done by a professional means future breakdowns and problems have a less chance of occurring in the future. Moreover, landlords are legally obliged to have a regular cooker service in their rented properties to maintain safety and welfare of their tenants.
During the cooker service, the ignition and burner pressure of the appliance are tested as well as checking that the connection to the gas supply is secure. Flues and fans are additionally checked to allow gas to travel through without Carbon Monoxide being formed. A safety chain must be fitted if there is no existing one, in case the appliance disconnects from the gas supply. If a cooker emits an uneven yellow flame instead of a strong, blue flame, this could be a sign of a failure issue. The main aim of a cooker service is to be sure of no gas leaks or risk of the poisonous Carbon Monoxide getting into the atmosphere.
