Question about Kitchen Ranges
Gas will not come on for the cooker. I think it's to do with the gas hob lid. Can you help?
The is a small button on the lid that is pressed then the lid is down that stop,s the gas working. try moving the cooker forward so the lid goes back more and the button may pop up and let the gas in may be sticking worth a check

Either teh grill element or the oven heating element is fault or the thermostat or grill regulator, locate which element is warm, if the grill then it is most likely the regulator, if it is the oven it is the thermostat. Engineer

I just had this problem, it was due to the button that the lid presses down when its lifted (the safety cut-off release). The button had siezed and the bar that presses it had bent around it so was not pressing it down. Some wd40 and gentle coaxing has it all back working agiain.

I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!
A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!

Hi, a complete shot in the dark as its a while since you posted - we have a mains gas rangemaster 110 and need an LPG one, do you still need to change or have you sorted it now? Cheers
