How Often Should You Service an Aga?

If you own an Aga cooker, you’ll likely want to take good care of it, ensuring that it runs smoothly and has a long life. As such, you’ll probably know that many Aga models need servicing to keep them in good condition and running smoothly, but do you know if, or how often your model should be serviced? In this article, we discuss the Aga models that need servicing, and how often they should be serviced, as well as whether or not you can do it yourself.

So, how often should you service an Aga? Most Aga cookers that need servicing should be done so every 12 months. However, some models will only need a full service every 5 years, and a traditional oil Aga should be serviced every 6 months. That being said, there are a number of Aga cookers that don’t require servicing at all.

What Does an Aga Service Include?

When you book an Aga service, the engineer will perform a number of tasks, which will differ slightly depending on your model. However, common features of an Aga service include:

  • Testing of controls and inner components to ensure that everything is working correctly
  • Testing of safety devices
  • Cleaning of vents to remove debris build-up
  • Replacement or repair of any components as necessary

Can You Service an Aga Yourself?

If absolutely necessary, you can perform an Aga service yourself, however it’s important that you are confident in what you’re doing, and are competent enough to not damage your Aga cooker in the process. 

In order to keep your Aga running safely and efficiently, we recommend using a trained Aga engineer for servicing due to their tailored training and experience. A specialist engineer knows exactly what they’re doing, what to look out for, and how not to damage your cooker in the process. 

That being said, there are a number of things that you can do at home to help keep your Aga running smoothly, such as seasoning the ovens, and regularly cleaning the ovens.
