gas cooker

Hi the electronics in my present gas cooker are on the blink so I cannot get
the oven or grill to work. To replace the electronics would cost £150 approx
plus fitting so I can either buy a new gas cooker that does not rely on
electricity, if one exists, or try to jam the valve that lets the gas
through when there is electricity.

My wife thinks this will be a good time to buy a new gas cooker so can you
buy a gas cooker that does not need electricity, as the only time we use the
electronics is to time an egg? Who needs a £150 clock on a cooker?

Also do they come supplied with the hose that just plugs into the gas pipe
or are they not considered safe anymore.
Thanks Ron

Er, you are joking, right?

What about igniting the rings, oven and grill? Do you prefer matches or
spark ignition? :)

Also do they come supplied with the hose that just plugs into the gas pipe

No: it is considered essential that cookers be fitted by people who don't
even _think_ of jamming the valve that lets the gas through. ;-)

Yes Ron, you can get them (some may need electric supply but only for the
ignition, others use a 9v battery for this) - Argos sell 'em cheap (and some
may say nasty), otherwise a local independent gas showroom I guess.
Lighting the hob with a taper is ok, but you don't really want to be on your
hands and knees trying to light an oven in this way - get one with piezo
ignition.

PS: if you do jam the gas valve open, please have the courtesy to warn your
family and neighbours to evacuate the local vicinity before you do so.

I never knew that you could get a device to light a gas cooker, I always
thought that you turned the oven on, waited five minutes, opened the door
and chucked a lit match in.
And yes you can jam the valve open, with of all things a matchstick, spent
of course.:) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
