The gas stove is a simple product that is in daily use among the inhabitants of London. When used properly, imported and local gas stoves serve 10–15 years without interruption.

Inspection and prevention plays a significant role in reliable and safe operation of the plate. This service does not attract enough attention of the owner and after the time the gas stoves break down, they gradually stop working and fail at all.
The practice of daily inspections and repairs of plates shows the wear of the shut-off device (gas control). Unqualified intervention in the automatic oven disrupts the process of the thermostat. Physicomechanical properties of rotary mechanisms grow old and wear out. The buttons under the burner on handle are oxidized, forcing electric firing to work constantly.
Failures and malfunctions are divided into two types:
Mechanical wear of rotary knots and protective devices:
Penetration of grease and water into the hole of the nozzle and the ignition button.
