The 2 oven Gas Cooker is circa. 1980. As mentioned in my note it had a Mk1 burner conversion unit fitted by the Aga dealer in 2006. The cooker model is GC.B.F serial number 83785. The cooker has been regularly serviced. I trust this information is sufficient for you to diagnose the problem and advice on the solution.

Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the AGA spares web site. It looks as though the control unit has to be replaced complete (£134.40). I am not aware of any additional control board on the AGA. As replacing the control unit necessitates working on gas pipework I believe I will need to use a qualified fitter to undertake the work.
