Following service instructions to remove burners, but burners will not budge.
This is an old fire but used regularly, could corrosion be a problem Tries
levers but will not move. Any suggestion on freeing up burner asssembly ?
Yes maybe the severs at home owners is run on gas?
Having said this, I do not every think the company mentioned ever made
anything that was any good. When this house used gas we had a procession of
P/C cookers all of which had pilot lights that went out or taps that jammed
burners that got clogged and oven thermostats that never worked.
A friend had a fire they made once and it smelt and sometimes refused to
ignite at all.
I wish them luck.
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
Go back far enough they made other things besides domestic gas appliances
and at one time manufactured
quite a few machine tools some of which were continued from the Parkinson
or Cowan firms before the amalgamation.
They made quite a few vices, an acquaintance who was a rigger searched the
country for something he called a rigging vice which was used to in
connection with splicing wire ropes and cables.
He found one near Bristol and knowing I had one of those small trailers
that could carry about 240 Kg
asked if we could go and collect it, When he described it as a vice I was
expecting something like a large bench vice, the bastard omitted to tell me
it was mainly a cast Iron bench with specialised clamps attached whose
weight was more akin to one of their kitchen ranges. The poor
indespensiion units adopted a pose like a sick Triumph Herald and the
Escort estate I had at the time felt the load as we climbed out of Bath on
our way back to the South Coast.
I appreciated you cannot view this but for those who can
The one we collected was younger than the the one in the picture as it was
branded Parkinson Cowan.
