    Many cookers have battery operated ignition. It is not regarded as dangerous for the battery to stop working. However due to the difficulties with lighting grills and ovens which can be a bit awkward, you should supply a couple of long nosed lighters - put them on your inventory.

    i think - but could be wrong - that this is one of those areas where if a feature is fitted, it needs to work. In other words, if you have an oven which is designed to be lit by hand, that's fine; but if it has an autoigniter then it needs to work.

    Do the manuals say changing the electrode is a "user" thing?? If not get a gas-safe person in perhaps.

    Maybe document (email) to tenant not to use grill until fixed - just in case the worst happens so you've some evidence of taking reasonable steps..

    The grill in our gas cooker has needed lighting manuallly for years - but killing yourself (or spouse..) is one thing, killing tenants another

    Yes it is a case of replacing the electrode hopefully, i tried to replace it myself but a little awkward to get to the screw so i will have to get an appliance engineer to fix it, but it might take a few days for them to get the part and fit it. So just wanted to know where i stood as far as a a tennant using the cooker, ATM it has an advisery ticket on the oven put on by the gas man .

    Can you get a new electrode? If the other electrodes light okay, it should be a simple matter to rectify.

    If gas man hasn't cut off the gas to the appliance, I would guess it's safe to use.

    Hi, every year I have all the electrical items in my properties tested even if they are tenants property.
    Can you write something in the tenancy about having items tested and paying for it.
    I've had a number of tenants items fail and it always causes problems when I say they need to remove...

    I know you don't have to have pat test done, but in Bristol 5 years ago a landlord was fined 30k for a faulty fridge which went live and injured the tenants son Not only that but he was refused insurance and cover withdrawn.
    When the engineer is there he tests everything for one price, £15 one...

    Why are you testing every year? And why are you paying for tenants kit?

    I think you only have to test items you supply as part of the tenancy.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not recommending to source your own. Just saying if you want to they can be gotten.

    Hi all,

    I had my electrical safety inspection carried out and the RCD in the consumer unit was found to be faulty (leakage due to age)

    I have a plastic mem consumer unit and can no longer obtain a new RCD so will have a new consumer unit fitted

    I have decided to...

    You can probably source a Hager Unit from TLC if you don't want an electricians mark-up. Likely to be one on an industrial estate near you. TLC definitely sell to non electricians as I've bought stuff from them myself.
