Gas Cooker Repair & Installation South Wales
Gas cooker repairs for these beneficial gas appliances can be tricky to navigate on your own. This is also true when it comes to gas cooker installation since the alignment of the stove top or hobs and the proper installing of the gas lines is important.
At Casburn Plumbing and Heating, we offer quality gas cooker repair in addition to installation service when a replacement is needed. We handle every job in a professional manner to ensure that your gas cooker heats evenly and cooks food thoroughly.
Do gas cookers need servicing?
To avoid gas cooker repairs or the complete failure of the appliance, regular service details for the cooker should be undertaken.
This is not guaranteed to keep the unit running effectively for years, but goes a long way in ensuring it is kept in the best condition it can be. Like boilers, a cooker is prone to various fluctuations in heat density, with certain models of gas appliances frequently fluctuating in proper and improper temperatures.
Furthermore, there could also be mechanical issues with the cooker that can be addressed with routine service inspections. For example, a faulty oven door could lead to improper heating, which can be addressed under gas cooker repairs if needed.
The hobs of the cooker also make up many of the calls received for gas cooker repairs. This could otherwise be caught and fine-tuned during a routine inspection of the appliance.
Our gas cooker service process:
To prevent gas cooker repairs, we provide the following service for all models:
- A thorough cleaning of the grates and the ignitor of both the gas oven and the stovetop. We can also diagnose problems with kitchen hobs.
- A full inspection of the gas cooker’s electronic signals to ensure the gas is properly aligning with the ignitor.
- Safety measures to ensure the flue controls that run the gas to the ignitor are working correctly.
- We will also check the burner in the oven to ensure it is heating properly and is completely cleaned to ensure quality cooking.
How often should a gas oven be serviced?
It is recommended to have your gas oven inspected for quality on an annual basis.
This can work to ensure cooker repairs are not needed, or the outright replacement of the appliance altogether.
For businesses in which a cooker and oven are used consistently on a daily basis, service should be provided to the units every 6 months.

Is it worth repairing a gas cooker?
Depending on the exact condition of the cooker, and the cost of cooker repairs needed against the price it would cost for a replacement, cooker repairs are typically a good idea.
The repairs needed are usually minimal depending on the age of the unit. Oven repairs are typically more frequently needed than cooker repairs, but no matter the repair needed, a professional company or gas appliance team should be hired to handle the repair.
A repair is often the way to go in lieu of simply buying a new unit outright. There is a strong possibility that the repair will cost much less than replacing the entire cooker itself.
How often do ovens break?
There is no magic number on how long ovens last before breaking, but you can expect between 10-15 years of maximum operating efficiency. This could possibly be increased with a repair or two needed at some point.
At any rate, you can expect to get a longer life out of a gas-running oven when compared to boilers.
Do I need an engineer to install a gas cooker?
Yes, you will need to have a gas engineer who is gas safe registered for a cooker to be installed correctly and safely.
Working with gas can be quite dangerous if the exact procedures are not correctly followed.
Our gas cooker installation process:
- A thorough check to ensure nothing is live that pulls gas within the home or business.
- Full disassembly of the previous cooker.
