Many keen cooks prefer a gas hob over electric because when you ignite the gas, heat is instant. Just like any household appliance though, a gas hob is prone to wearing out or becoming damaged, in which case you will probably need some gas hob replacement parts to keep it burning and cooking.
Please remember that only a Gas Safe engineer can carry out repairs to the actual gas carrying parts of the gas hob, and that the gas supply has to be turned off to replace or repair these.
A gas hob has a surprisingly large number of components, and many of them will be unique to your particular make and model of hob. If you are going to order spare parts for your gas hob it is wise to ascertain the model number, which will probably be in an awkward place underneath the appliance, or you should be able to find it in the instruction manual. If you have difficulty identifying your gas hob for purposes of obtaining spare parts, Capital Repairs will be able to assist you.
As for the parts themselves, these are many and varied. Right on the top are the iron pan supports which you rest your pot on while cooking. These seem solid and durable, but have been known to break and seeing as they are tailored to the hob, and not of a generic size and shape, they can be difficult to replace.
Gas burners are the most commonly required spare parts for gas hobs, and they themselves usually consist of several parts – a body, ring and burner cap or flame spreader. Burners that won’t light often have blocked jets, and if it lights but won’t stay alight it could be a problem with the thermocouple. If you aren’t sure what part you need to fix your gas burner, call Capital Repairs for expert advice.
