Review of Tiger stove

Tiger gas stove constant problems

4 years ago

I've had my tiger gas stove for about 5years now. It worked perfectly fine for 3 years, and I was pleased with its output and good looks. However, the past 2 years have been a nightmare, it wouldn't light unless you kept the button pressed for over a minute. Changed the thermocouple, still gave problems, now having to change the tap assembly. No gas engineer wants to go near it, those who do cannot give a definitive diagnosis to the fault, and play guess work.

I'm at my wits end and am considering getting rid of it!

Stove expert replied: There are only a few parts that can cause problems and the thermocouple is the normal culprit.. Perhaps get in touch with the UK distributor if the Gas Safe Engineer is having problems disposing what part is faulty.
