Hob Service

A hob service has three main advantages: to avoid gas leaks or defects forming, to prevent potentially fatal carbon monoxide poisoning and to certify that the appliance will continue to be safe for use in the future, for as long as possible. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) work can be seen as illegal when it comes to gas appliance work, due to it being extremely dangerous if performed by an individual who isn’t qualified or relatively experienced with the job. Therefore, it is recommended that a Gas Safe registered engineer should be chosen to carry out any hob service. Gas Safe replaced CORGI in 2009.

The hob service tends to involve repairs, replacement and installations; covering nearly all makes and models. Servicing a hob should be regular, in order to avoid any parts drying out over time, therefore becoming stiff and unsafe to use. If the hob is failing to work properly, a Gas Safe engineer should be contacted immediately. An engineer can also be called upon to connect new or used hobs, whether they need a bayonet gas point or a gas supply pipe. A hob service additionally ensures that flame safety devices, safety shut-off valves, support brackets and other parts are all included or repaired. When it comes to gas hobs, these other intricate parts are inspected:

• Burners

• Crowns

• Injectors

• Pilots

• Ignition

• Sparking

• Lighting

• Seals
