hi probably flexi tube as othes have suggested. We had the same problem when we bought a house & an ordinary plumber fixed with a modern pipe.

Good luck.

Have you tried RYO in Malansac?  The came out to my gas supply when I thought I had a leak.

In the meantime don't use your cooker, isolate it from the supply.

Thanks all. We have a French gasman here at this very moment - whole house smells of gas, kitchen cupboards all emptied onto the floor, lots of tools and scratching of head - but he's here!!

Contact your gas supplier or the Mairie as suggested.They should be able to support you in this. Bon chance.

Ps Normally an out of date flexi tube should be pickedup in the diagnostics

Look at the flexible tube that connects the gas cooker to the supply pipe.These are dated and what often happens is that people forget to change them and they go brittle and detreriorate causing a leak.If it is this pipe you can usually buy a replacement in any brico but if you are not confident then use a pro.Perhaps you could go to the Marie and ask if they know of anyone explaining your choir predicament.

If you can smell gas then using the appliance is a NO NO!!!!!.

I'm sure your guests would rather eat cold food than leave your home in a coffin.

I am not being over dramatic, as an ex gas installer I have seen a number of houses wrecked because of a SMALL gas leak.

Please do not risk it.

Pete.

We have a large tank of gas in the garden, but we think we've narrowed it down to the gas cooker, as when we turn off the local supply beside the cooker, the smell stops. When we turn it on again, we gete the smell. I'm reluctant to leave it on and use the cooker, but with 3 weeks of family and friends arriving next week, I'll have to.
