Superviser Teddy

Teddy here.........

Well we woke up yesterday morning to an unusually cold kitchen. The night before Dad and I had a boys chat and decided we needed to turn our trusty red aga off so we could service her as she was not maintaining full temperature. We suspected she had a problem somewhere. So tools out and off to work we went.........

My job was to examine the burner once it was removed......

Then we had to strip it down (some of our aga servicing tools are very technical... a loo brush, a toothbrush and also a pastry brush)

Makin sure the temperature gauge was showing cold..cos the AGA gets very vert hot and we did not want any burnt paws!

Sizin up the jobbie and the state of the burner box ...

We are very strong and between us we lifted the boiling plate out. We needed to hoover the inside where it lives cos it was FULL of soot (which I know it shouldn't be!)

Hmmm now wheres the switch for this thing then?
This is the inside of the burner the black crusty bits are clinker..carbon from the fuel, horrid waste which was blocking the fuel pipe and causing the problems.
As you can see we used lots of thingies..I am very good with the drill! We put new wicks in the burner.Thats the burner back together!

Yep clean and ready to go back in.

Burner back in place. I helped reconnect the fuel supply..just makin sure we have no leakies

I whisper instructions in Dads ear to keep him right as he lit the burner ....

Checkin we have a flame? Yep we do!

Finnished with a polish of the lids. Dad job welldone me finks says Teddy !

The proof of the pudding will be in the YORKIE PUD on sunday!!!! said the rest of the thuglets.

Conclusion our lastest oil delivery whist very expensive was inferior in quality. Pawed a note to ring the oil company!

Thank goodness. I can just imagine the fuss the ladies would have put on had you not broken out the manly tools and restored heat.

Have a warm and great weekend to all of you.

wOw are one handy thuglet! we hope you have successfully serviced the burner so you guys don't freeze! it's pretty cold here too, 31 degrees farenheit this morning -- and the heat did go on successfully so i guess i, theBUSTER, can nap for the rest of the day.. knowing the girls and the humans will be toasty..
