Gas stoves and cooktops are essential kitchen appliances. When they malfunction, it can be a frustrating experience. At Expert Appliance Repair, our skilled technicians are here to address your gas stove and cooktop issues. Given the safety concerns associated with gas appliances, it's crucial to rely on professionals who specialize in gas equipment.

Common Gas Stove Issues
Here are some of the most common gas stove problems we encounter:

Burner Ignition or Shutdown Issues: This often occurs due to clogged nozzles or debris. It can also result from malfunctioning the spark plug insulation, a solenoid valve plate breakdown, or a burnt thermoplastic. If your gas stove has automatic mains-powered ignition, ensure it's properly connected.

Burner Goes Out During Operation: Check if the flame completely envelops the thermocouple. If it doesn't, it may require cleaning the nozzle or adjusting the gas mixture supply. If the issue persists, contact a technician for thermocouple replacement.

Electric Ignition Failure: If the electric ignition doesn't work, many resort to using matches. However, it can be due to various reasons, such as a lack of voltage in the network, a burned-out spark generator, or malfunctioning power button contacts. Our technicians start with checking and repairing the outlet, cleaning contacts, and, if needed, replacing the ignition unit.

Weak Gas Burn: When the flame burns less vigorously than usual, the issue might be a clogged gas mixture distribution nozzle. This requires thorough cleaning. Gas combustion height depends on fuel supply and air intake adjustment, necessitating an air damper adjustment and nozzle cleaning.

Stiff Gas Supply Valve: Accumulated fat can make rotary mechanisms challenging to turn. Regular cleaning and lubrication with a layer of oil can solve this issue. Less commonly, it might be due to insufficient lubrication within the tap, which requires disassembly and application of graphite grease.

Oven Doesn't Light or Turn On: For ovens equipped with automatic ignition, ensure they are connected to the mains. If not, a spark might strike beside the burner. Professionals should handle repairs to avoid further issues.

Gas Smell: A gas odor is a severe problem indicating a gas mixture leak. This poses serious health and safety risks. It's essential to turn off the gas supply, ventilate the area, and contact a gas equipment repair specialist. Leaks often occur due to poor tile connections, which the technician will inspect and rectify.

Burner Shuts Off When the Knob Is Released: Modern stoves may experience issues with the gas control system. A faulty thermal electromagnetic valve is often the culprit. Attempting to repair it yourself is not advisable; leave it to the professionals for a quick and reasonably priced replacement, as the gas control system is vital for user safety.

These are some common gas stove and cooktop issues, but not an exhaustive list. To ensure all work aligns with gas equipment standards and comes with a repair guarantee, trust our experienced professionals.
