My Stoves cooker knobs are melting

Like any other cooker, your New World cooker is likely to experience some sort of problem from time-to-time, which may stop you from being able to cook your food. There’s no reason to panic, however, as many of these common problems are able to be resolved without the need of going out and replacing your cooker with a whole new one. So, if you find that your New World cooking appliance is showing any of these issues, read on to find out what you can do to fix them and get back the oven that you know and love!


  • Oven Doesn’t Produce Heat – If you find that your New World oven isn’t producing any heat, it may be due to either one of the following three reasons.
  1. Oven/fan element has become damaged – Check if they are conducting electricity using a multimeter, also known as a continuity check.
  2. Changeover switch/commutator failed – This switch controls the various functions of the oven, so will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  3. Thermal fuse malfunction – The thermal fuse can become damaged due to poor ventilation. To combat this, ensure your cooker is situated in an open space.


  • Oven is Overheating – The oven is a crucial component of your New World cooking appliance. If you find that your food is burning when placed inside, it may be due to it overheating. This is often down to the thermostat being broken. Unfortunately, the thermostat cannot be repaired to will need to be replaced. While replacing your thermostat, you need to ensure that you handle the phial with extreme care. This is a small device that holds gas and is placed into the cavity. Gas expands or contacts to activate or deactivate the thermostat.


  • Burner Produces an Erratic Flame – Ideally, the burner on your New World cooker should produce a steady blue flame. One common problem that you may find is that your gas cooker’s burner will produce an uneven yellow flame or an unusually small flame. If so, this may be an indication that the burner is being choked by debris in the holes or jets. To combat this, disassemble the burner, check for debris and clean thoroughly with water. Avoid using a wire or pointed object as this can cause the hole to increase, leading to further problems.


  • Igniter Doesn’t Work – Now and again; the igniter on your New World cooker may decide not to work. You will find this is happening when the spark produced when you press the ignition button isn’t occurring. If so, chances are that the igniter is clogged with food, dirt or grime that needs cleaning. To fix this, simply remove that igniter, usually found near the oven burner and clean it with a toothbrush, removing all the accumulated dirt. Scrub the surface in a gentle manner.

Your cooker, unfortunately, is like many other things in life, it's not built to last forever. Unless you've discovered an immortal, ever-lasting oven, chances are you're going to have to replace either the oven itself or some of its parts at one time or another. But how long do cookers last? Read on to learn some of the things that you can do to prolong the life of your cooking appliance.

Modern cookers are designed to last as long as possible, especially those that offer the highest of specifications, but there will always come a day when it just seems to have given up. This may happen after many years, or soon after purchase, but it is always important to be aware that where electronics, heat and moving parts are present, there is the potential for something to go wrong. Like anything, if you don't properly care and look after your cooker, it's not going to work. Therefore it is vital to thoroughly clean your oven as regularly as possible to prevent grease and other detritus from building up and causing damage. If dealt with and removed early enough, your oven is far less likely to exhibit issues with functionality further down the line. A good scrub and clean not only improves the overall health of your cooker, but it also benefits hygiene. So, there will be far fewer chances of unusual tastes when eating your food!

If getting dirty while on your hands and knees to keep your cooker alive doesn't sound very appealing, then there is always the possibility of taking your oven in for a service. Most cooker manufactures will provide this as standard when you purchase your cooker, as well as any repairs that are covered under warranty. This, however, will ensure that if there are any parts such as fans or filters that need replacing, they can be found and dealt with as soon as possible. 

One of the most common signs to look out for to tell if your cooker is on the way out is when getting up to the required temperature takes longer than usual. This could indicate one of two things; either there is an issue with your cooker's seals or there are deeper issues with the heating element, indicating an irreversible decline in your oven's performance. You cooker, to some extent, may still work, but continuing to cook in this state may lead to more costlier issues in the future.  

So, what's better than cure? Prevention. Which is why it's extremely important to take note and practice the things talked about above. Regularly cleaning and replacing faulty parts will on average keep your cooker working for around 10-15 years, depending on the type and model. So, it is definitely worth taking that extra bit of time out every now and then to properly care for your oven!

If your oven is experiencing issues and you believe it to be due to faulty or damaged parts, then there is no reason to go out and buy a whole new oven, go ahead and get those parts replaced! We supply a wide range of like-for-like or high-quality alternatives here at Cooker Spare Parts for popular cooker brands such as Hotpoint, Belling and much more.

Regardless of who you are, it's likely that you have commitments that make cooking a wholesome meal from scratch every night difficult. At CookerSpareParts, we want you to provide you with the right equipment to cook meals, but also with hints and tips to save you time - making cooking a pleasure, not a chore. Read on to learn a few easy ways to shed time off your meal prep and cooking times. 

#1 - Use tools that work:

From the knives you use to chop your ingredients, to the appliance you use to cook them, you need to ensure that all of your equipment is in full working order before you start preparing a meal. Precious time can be lost during the cooking process if you find yourself looking using a tool or appliance isn't functioning correctly. Before cooking, spend a couple of minutes putting all of the different tools together and give them a quick check over to make sure everything is working as it should be. A faulty door seal or a damaged thermostat might be costing you precious time because your cooking appliance won't be working as efficiently as it should be. If you think you need to replace parts of your cooking appliance to save valuable time when you're cooking, take a look at our full range here.

#2 - Cook things that take a long time at the weekend:

One great way to save time during the week is by utilising the extra time you can spend on cooking at the weekend. If you're thinking of cooking a Sunday dinner, why not roast twice the amount of meat? You can eat one portion with your Sunday dinner and save a pre-cooked portion for use throughout the week! Whole roast chickens or joints of meat are particularly good for this, although you could roast extra veg or halloumi cheese if you're looking for a veggie alternative. This will save you lots of time cooking again throughout the week, and will also urge you to eat something prepared from home each day rather than being tempted by those takeaway restaurants.

#3 - Cook at a higher temperature than the recipe suggests:

This one might seem a little odd but stick with us. Generally speaking, the temperature guidelines provided by food suppliers are there to ensure that your food cooks in a particular time, but for some foods cooking them at a higher temperature won't affect the outcome, only the time it takes to cook! Your cooker's thermostat goes up much higher than the standard recommended 180-200°C - just remember if you do decide to cook at a higher temperature, you may need to keep a closer eye on the food than usual. Despite this, you will save heaps of time and get your dinner served quicker than you expected. To try this tip safely you need to ensure your cooker thermostat is working properly. If it isn't you can easily replace it with the help of CookerSpareParts! Click here to view available thermostats.

We hope these tips help you save some time when you next cook a meal. If you have any questions about purchasing replacement parts from us, contact us by clicking the button below:
