How to get Aga services in Cambridge
The Aga is often see as the centrepiece of any household, and although robust, as with most domestic appliances, Aga cookers require routine servicing and maintenance to ensure they continue to operate safely and efficiently. A significant number of homeowners in the region are in possession of an Aga, therefore is is important to book your Aga services in Cambridge well in advance.
What’s included in an Aga service?
It’s important to remember that your Aga needs to be cold when it is serviced, so make sure that you turn the Aga off in due time to let it cool down properly. If your Aga is still warm, the engineer will not be able to service it for you.
An Aga engineer will be able to identify any issues that may cause a breakdown, leaks or be potentially unsafe to you and your family. The engineer will:
- Test all of the controls and inner components to make sure that the Aga is operating correctly.
- Check the oil rate, oil tank and oil pipes
- Test the safety devices
- Clean the vents to remove any build-up of debris
- Check the insulation of lids and doors
- Replace any of the internal components if necessary
Therefore, depending on the type of Aga you have, here are our recommendations:
Gas Aga heat-storage cookers
These usually require a service every 12 months by a specialist Aga gas engineer.
30-amp electric models
You should check for electrical safety and operation every 12 months.
13-amp electric models
Including the Aga Total Control and the Aga Dual Control, these require an interim service every 2 ½ years and a full service every 5 years.
Oil Aga cookers
Ideally these should be serviced every 6 months. 3-oven and diesel models may extend to 12 months. Solid fuel models require their internal flue ways to be cleaned monthly, with a six-monthly sweeping of the connecting flue pipe. The main chimney should be swept annually.
