An AGA door I repaired last year for a customer. We accidentally chipped the door whilst cleaning – the first and hopefully the last time it will ever happen. If you are an AGA cleaner don’t stack the two doors from the third and four ovens on top of each other when you are cleaning – as the operative who did this did – as just the fall of two inches to the floor can chip the AGA door. I now train everyone to take each door off one at a time, clean it, and then put it back on after the door is cleaned to avoid any risk of damage. As the cream enamel colour of an AGA has thousands of variations according to our local AGA re-enameller (who quoted me £350 to just get the colour matched and of course the re-enamelling would have been on top of this)
I got paint colour matched to the door and did the repair myself. The paint cost me £15 and there was also the time to get a replacement door (loaned to me by a local AGA spares supplier) to put on the AGA whilst I had the door for repair, the time it took me to do the repair, and the time to take the doors back. As the door was the bottom door on the four oven AGA then the temperature it reached wouldn’t be high and the repair would be sustainable. The customer was very
happy with the job.
