Creda Europa 0080 gas cooker won't light

Postby Sam Gangee » Tue May 01, 2007 9:42 pm

Creda Europa 0080 gas cooker won't light. Location: Gilwern, s. Wales.

Bottom oven won't light.
Turning the knob does nothing.
No spark, no gas.
The top oven works perfectly.

Suggestions gratefully received. I realise this is unlikely to be a DIY job but I'm intrigued to know what goes wrong to cause these symptoms!

get a corgi registered installer to take a look, possible blockage in gas pipes, or problem with gas tap/rail.
