Dylan is an absolute hero – we had just moved into a new house and had no hot water with 4 young children. He came out qu ickly, found the issue and did everything he could to coordinate other trades to get the problem fixed. I highly recommend!

Cooker Maintenace and Servicing
As with any gas appliance in your home, you should always ensure that your gas cooker and hob is properly maintained. Gas, electric ceramic and induction hobs do not require any routine maintenance aside from cleaning. However, if you have a gas or Aga Range cooker, it is recommended that you have it serviced by a qualified gas engineer every 12 months. The’ Total Control’ and the ‘Dual Control’ need an interim service every 2 – 3 years and a full service every 5 years. This is to ensure their electrical safety and operation.
During a gas safety check, one of our Gas Safe registered engineers will check your gas oven and hob to ensure it’s safe to continue using in your home, making sure the gas is burning correctly, the appliance is secure, and any pipework is connected securely. They will also check the ventilation requirements for safety and comfort of use.
Common problems with a gas cooker or hob
Sometimes gas cookers and hobs don’t work as they should. Some of the common gas cooker problems that arise include:
- Temperature fluctuations
- Gas oven burner won’t ignite
- Smoke coming from your gas oven
- Gas odour smell
- Cooker door won’t close properly
- Excessive condensation on kitchen windows
- Excessively warm surface above your oven door
If your gas cooker or hob isn’t working as it should be, get in touch with our team today. Our Gas Safe Registered engineers will be able to diagnose and fix any problems there may be with your appliance, giving you peace of mind that it is safe to use.
Signs of an unsafe gas cooker or hob
When it comes to making sure that your gas cooker or hob is safe, you should take plenty of care and be aware of the signs which indicate that there could be a problem. These safety warning signs include:
- Gas odour
- A floppy yellow flame inside the oven or around the hob ring, rather than a crisp blue one
- Black or brown marks around the appliance
If you have noticed any of these things occurring with your gas cooker or hob, it may be dangerous for you to use. If this is the case, please get in touch with our team of Gas Safe Registered engineers today. Give us a call on 07446 978 574 or complete the quick and easy form on our contact page.

Are you looking to completely replace your boiler?
Very impressed with the service we had from Dylan at Hampshire Heating. We will be recommending to family & friends. Professional and friendly. We had been let down by others and Dylan was there at the right time & date when he said. Fitted and replaced all the pipe work in a day. We will definitely be asking him back each year to do our boiler service.
Dylan installed a new boiler and system and was very professional and hard working. He is friendly and happy to talk you through all the options and the final work plan. He completed the job on time and to an excellent standard and was very tidy for a bit of a mucky job!!
I highly recommend this first class company.
On his second job for me, Dylan replaced my old boiler. He talked me through the options which made me feel really confident with my decision.
I recommended him to my elderly parents and they were also suitably impressed.
Hampshire Heating Services are on my speed dial for any plumbing relating work and I highly recommend them.
