Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have recently had a corgi registered plumber remove a gas fire with back boiler from my living room and he blanked off the supply as we no longer require a fire in its place. we also have installed a new gas hob. he did a gas leak detection and found we were loosing gas so he disconnected the hob and this seemed to have solved the gas leak on doing another test pointing to a problem with the hob or the micro hose. I bought a new micro hose and this still hasnt been fitted but since the guy has made these changes my gas oven seems to be producing an awful smell of gas whilst on. when i open the oven door the smell and fumes really stings my eyes. what can the problem be.

IMMEDIATELY ISOLATE THE OVEN AND DO NOT USE. GET PLUMBER BACK - HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO CHECK THE APPLIANCE ITSELF FOR LEAKS BUT THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THE JUNCTION OF THE CONNECTION HOSE WITH THE HOB

Vaillant boiler has a strange odor when firing up


It could be the heat exchanger overheating or a problem with the chimney. Both require that a qualified service tech evaluate the problem because both can cause carbon monoxide to be released into the living area. THIS NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pilot light on boiler


The plumbers repair should be guaranteed, give him a call back.
It sounds to me that the pilot flame needs to be adjusted or the thermocouple is not aligned properly or there is a draft that is blowing out the pilot.
Good luck...

Water gets hot then turns cold and runs cold then hot again


Secondary heat exchanger is blocked on sealed system side.
Remove and de-scale heat exchanger or fit new one.

Valient combi boiler is not heating the water properly


vailant boilers are one of the best on the market and should last you more than 6 years depending on installation and servicing.
the engineer you had should not have replaced the diverter valve if the boiler was firing up when the taps are opened. if you was getting luke warm water with the boiler alight it is a classic symptom of a blocked plate heat exchanger on the central heating side.
a new heat exchanger can cost around £100 depending on the age and model of the boiler.alteranatively it could be descaled but may clogg again. it would be a good ideal to fit a magna clean filter on the system to help prevent further debris if you have a dirty system .if you don't trust your engineer i suggest you ask another. find out if he is registered first and don't pay until you are satisfied with the work. if you are asking the same engineer back try and get a discount off the work as he has failed to rectifiy the original fault and fitted the wrong part due to wrong diagnostics. if he is registered you can complain to the governing body ie corgi or gas safe register.
good luck.
