Common Gas Problems and Solutions
Gas faults come in all shapes and sizes. It is important to note that gas can kill, and you should not attempt to fix a gas fault yourself. Use the table below as an identification tool only, to help your gas fitter fix the fault. Many gas fitters will have a set price for fixing certain components.
|No gas at my appliance||LPG cylinders empty||Exchange the cylinder|
|Gas meter OPSO regulator tripped||Call a gas fitter to reset|
|Pipe blockage||Call a gas fitter to locate and remove the blockage|
|Jet blockage||Call a gas fitter to remove the blockage or install new jets|
|Appliance regulator is on the wrong way around||Call a gas fitter to switch around the regulator|
|Gas supply capped off by supplier or gas fitter||Call your supplier or gas fitter to investigate why the supply is capped and ask them to remove if safe.|
|Gas Pressure too Low||Appliance regulator set too low||Call a gas fitter to increase the regulator pressure|
|You are in a low-pressure gas area||Call your gas supplier. They may be able to provide more pressure.|
|Gas Pressure too High||Appliance regulator set too High||Call a gas fitter to decrease the regulator pressure|
|You are in a high-pressure gas area||Call your gas supplier. They will be able to decrease your supply pressure to around 3kpa.|
|The gas burner will not hold the flame||Faulty thermocouple||Get your gas fitter to replace your thermocouple|
|The Burner flame will not light without a match||Faulty Ignitor||Get your gas fitter to replace your ignitor|

|Incorrect Jets||Call your gas fitter asap|
|We can smell gas||Gas Leak||Call your gas fitter asap|
|We purchased an LPG appliance rather than Natural Gas.||Wrong gas jets/ regulator||Call your gas fitter to convert your appliance to the right gas. Do not use until this is done.|
Our Gas Service
I believe that we differ from most plumbing and gas services, as we design our gas installation with the finished product in mind. I have noticed that this is the best for you to get consistent results regarding great functionality and safety from the installation.
We offer up-front pricing for all new gas installations. Our basic prices for gas appliance and gas pipework installations can be found using our pricing calculator.
All our installations are tested for gas tightness and operating pressures and then run through a functionality test.
Residential Gas Pricing
For all your gas installation pricing, visit our pricing calculator to get a labour cost on your gas installation today.
Generally, when it comes to gas servicing, it can sometimes be hard to narrow down a price without all the information.
For example, the gas fitter may have to strip the gas appliance down to get a part number and then order it in. On the second visit, the gas appliance and the new component can be reassembled and tested.
I have listed some gas installation jobs below with estimated time frames next to each. Obviously, not all gas jobs are the same. Use the list below as a basic guide for a basic job.
Gas Meters – 1 meter of pipe – 1.5 hours
Hot Water Systems – 3 hours for plumbing and the gas (Replace old with new, external)
Cook Tops – 1.5 hours
Ovens – 1.5 Hours
Pool and Spa Heaters – Gas connection and commission only (1 meter of pipe) – 3 Hours
Gas Pipework and Gas Appliance Testing
All our gas systems are comprehensively tested through all the stages of installation to ensure that there are no leaks and that the correct pressures are met.
Gas certificates and compliance plates will be provided to you once the work is complete.
