I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello, there should be a gas cock near to the fire, to isolate the gas supply. Can you turn it off there?

Hello, I see you've given a negative rating, although I don't know why.

How are you getting on with your gas fire?
