Looking for a gasfitter to replace gas cooktop. It’s not usable so it’s kinda urgent as can’t keep living on takeaways. Would prefer to supply own cook top. Tried calling a few but no one got back to me. Maybe hob too small? I’m in East Auckland

Location?

 

If no one got back to you, did you call one man band gas fitters , and no larger companies? I have had that, but if I call a larger company, its all fine. 

 

I doubt its too small a job to be bothered with though, unless everyone is chock full of work.

you need to get a cooktop first. The gas fitter wont have time to source you one of these (and you shouldnt want him to pay him/her per hour to suss this for you). 

 

Once you get you know you will have a new cooktop in posession.....book the gas fitter. 

 

Plenty around.  You have to make sure your new cook top is suitable for the type of gas being used. 

 

Find the specs of your current one (dimensions) and that should help you in store trying to buy a new one from the likes of trade depot, HN, Noels, blah blah. 

 

'0800 Get Laser' if you really get stuck.

Only one turned up and he was a one man band. He confirmed existing hob is faulty, some seal has broken inside the hob not even worth trying to repair or diagnose. He wants to isupply and install Parmco but I would prefer at least Whirlpool or there is a brand new Gaggenau on Trademe. Big companies like Arrow and Euro plumbing have a fixed cost on their website for installing customer supplied cook top they are not really keen to come for a free quote. My concern is, if installer comes and the one I buy doesn’t fit or it should if I just buy a 60 cm cook top.

Parmco gas hobs are fine. As they use the same burners as lots of other brands of hob. And Parmco keep spare parts for them in Auckland.

Have installed lots of them myself (gasfitter). Repair jobs for them are the same as other brands. I'm based on the North Shore, so I don't normally travel to East Auckland for jobs.

The money that you are willing to spend on a more expensive gas hob, is far better to instead be spent on a better Washing machine, dishwasher, fridge ECT. When you next need to buy a major new appliance.
