I BOUGHT MY COOKER IN 1988 - it uses Calor gas and nas been excellent until now.
Problem: the oven does not seem to be getting full power from the gas cylinders, and the automatic ignition isn't working.
I lit it manually, but it refused to roar and gain heat. HELP!!
Plumberpro : Hi the gas burner is failing to go to high rate. This is because the thermocouple sitting in the burner is faulty and needs replacing . But check that the burner and thermocouple is clean. And food has not dropped all over it .
