Aga & Rayburn Engineers

Staunch and Flow are Central London’s independent service engineers for Aga. We maintain and service all Aga gas cookers.

Aga advises all customers to have their appliance serviced every year. Our staff have completed all necessary Aga and Rayburn courses and have the appropriate Range Cooker certification to work on these cookers.

We charge £160 + VAT for a fully approved Aga service call out and £240 + VAT for a Rayburn. We carry out the full approved Aga/Rayburn services which include taking off the hot plate, checking that all the flues are clean and changing the thermocouple.

Parts – including the thermocouple – are not included in the Aga & Rayburn service price. Please also see item 13 in our terms and conditions regarding service visits.

Please note that in order to work on an Aga you must turn off your cooker 24 hours in advance in order for it to have cooled down enough to work on, this is imperative for health and safety. Continue reading below for advice on how to do this.

Other Gas Services

+ Gas MK1 Burner

Turning Your Aga Off

Refer to the sketch below to identify the various controls.

If your Aga is only to be left for a few days, why turn it off? It doesn’t hurt to leave it on a lower thermostat position.

For longer periods the pilot only may be left on as follows:

Turn the black control tap ’4′ (located in the centre of the numbered ring) through 90 degrees, until the finger grip is at right angles, i.e across the gas pipe.

To turn it off completely: Carry out the above and then turn the main control cock ’1′ through 90 degrees, so that the line on the cock, is across the pipe.

This turns both pilot and main burner off.

+ Converted Agas

Converted Aga’s are old solid fuel heat storage units that have been converted to use gas. Most converted Aga’s use a Junkers valve or a more modern 630 eurosit valve. The main different between a normal aga and a converted aga is that the gas valve is on the outside of the aga on the left or the right side. This means that the thermocouple used is not going to be a conventional aga thermocouple. It might be a very long universal thermocouple or it might be a thermocouple with an extension on it. Either way the parts are not standard.

Staunch and Flow try to carry as many parts as possible however parts for the converted Aga’s are very hard to get and can take some time to source. Our team has extensive knowledge of these aga’s and will try to help in every way we can. We do not charge any more to service a recon Aga.

Reviews From Clients

My boiler gave its last gasp a week ago. It had to happen one day - when I bought the flat it was already out of date. Staunch and Flow were round the same day to inspect and diagnose: a new boiler was required. A couple of days later, it was up and running, installed and working beautifully thanks to Staunch and Flow engineer, Rob Griffin. Rob is a highly experienced, extremely efficient, very reliable technician (and a great guy, too!). Can't thank S&F and Rob enough for their good work. In London, with all the cowboys about, it is very comforting to know that at least one plumbing and heating company can be trusted completely.

I was relieved that one engineer was able to service my boiler as well as my gas fireplaces, of which one had been disconnected. Plenty of chimney flare tests were made to double check the chimneys were drawing the fumes out well. Also the gas connections to the fireplaces were inspected and cleaned. The cost of what I required was not exorbenant. Suzanne Press
