gas cooker parts

Your cooker is an appliance you use near enough every day, but you may not think you know much about it. You oven is made up of a number of gas cooker parts, including: Oven burner, spark generators, thermostats, and a flame failure device. If for any reason any part of the your gas cooker becomes faulty, we are confident we have a replacement part - to view all of gas cooker replacement parts, click here.

As there are some variations between gas cookers, the parts you need may be a little different, here are some key gas cooker parts that make your oven work:

oven burner

This part of your gas cooker is responsible for actually cooking your food. For a gas cooker to come on, the lighter needs to be lit. When you turn on your oven you are effectively lighting the burner. 

Ignition Generators & Switches
A working spark/ignition generator will light the gas that your oven needs to work. Found in ovens that rely on electric ignitions, it generates a spark that lights the natural gas used to fuel your oven. 

Flame Failures & Thermocouples
Instead of an electric ignition generator, some gas cookers will have a part that creates a constantly-burning pilot flame. This means that the natural gas is allowed to flow through the appliance, where the gas is then ignited by the pilot flame. 

Gas Thermostats & Gas Taps
As the name would suggest, this part measures the temperature of your oven whilst the burner is lit. This allows you to set your oven to a certain heat so you can cook food at the correct temperature. If this part becomes faulty it can cause your food to be over or under cooked.

Simmerstats - also known as an energy regulator or infinite switch - are responsible for turning the heating elements on and off in hobs, grills, and various other cooking appliances. During the cooking period, the simmerstat tells the heating element to turn on and switch off at regular intervals. The length of those intervals is determined by you, the user - you simply turn the control knob that's hooked up to the simmerstat to determine how long you want each on period and each off period to last (and thus how much energy you want the heating element to use).

An example of a simmerstat in use

Let's imagine you're heating up some pasta sauce on your cooker's hob.

Saucepan on a hob

The instructions on the jar call for a low heat, so you turn the hob's control knob a quarter-turn. This is effectively telling the simmerstat that you want the hob's heating element on a quarter of the time.

Switching the hob on begins a cycle that is regulator by the simmerstat (energy regulator). For instance, the heating element might come on for 10 seconds, then turn off for 30 seconds, then come on for another 10 seconds, then go off for another 30 seconds...

You get the idea. This duty cycle means that, overall, the hob's heating element is operating at roughly a quarter of its full power, and since it is switched off for 75% of the time, your pasta sauce won't be allowed to get too hot.

If you're cooking something else that calls for a higher heat setting, you might turn the control knob three-quarters of the way around. Now you're telling the simmerstat to keep the hob ON for 75% of the time and OFF for 25% of the time. In this case, the element would theoretically stay on for 30 seconds before switching off for 10 seconds.

Need a new simmerstat?

If your simmerstat has stopped working then your cooker won't work properly either. Don't worry, though - we have a range of spare energy regulators available here at Cooker Spare Parts.

universal oven element

If your oven is failing to heat up your meals, it's doing a pretty lousy job at being an oven! If both the oven and the grill aren’t heating up it’s likely that it’s your oven element causing the problems. The oven element is the part of the oven that is responsible for getting your oven hot, so if your meals aren’t up to scratch, maybe this is why (it would be a nice excuse for bad food anyway).

What you need to fix this problem is a Universal Oven Element. The Dual Top Oven Element is a genuine manufacturer’s part that will perfectly replace your faulty element! To kick start up your oven’s heating capabilities, this universal oven element has a 2800W dual output (2250W and 550W) and is suitable for AristonHotpoint and Indesit cookers.  

A faulty element is usually clear from any burns or bulges, so look out for this when trying to work out why your oven isn't fully functioning.
