How often does my cooker require a service?

It is recommended (as per manufacturer's guidelines) that an Oil Aga or Rayburn should be serviced every six months and a gas Aga or Rayburn should be serviced annually. 30 AMP models should be checked annually for electrical safety and operation, while 13 AMP models should be serviced every two and a half years.

What does a service include?

Depending on the model and fuel type, we will; check operation of all functional controls and components, test safety devices, confirm correct fuel rates (oil) and gas pressures, clean burners and internal flue-ways, inspect/replace rope seals and gaskets, adjust operation of insulating lids and doors, check oil line, storage tank and gas soundness.

Do I need to prepare for the service?

When arranging a service maintenance visit, your engineer will require the AGA to be cool, so please ensure that it is turned off the night before. A hot cooker cannot be safely serviced.
