    Black Soot Building up on Aga Lid.

    Black Soot Building up on Aga Lid. 18th Apr 17 at 8:26 PM
    Just lifted the hot side lid on my gas Aga to find a lot of sooty deposit on the underside of the lid.

    I don't want to go poking around at gas appliances unnecessarily but my experience with engines tells me black soot tends to be caused by poor fuel/air mixture, therefore I wonder if this could be a straight forward fix.

    Before I call someone out can someone here tell me a few basic checks to make? And also when to admit defeat and call someone in.
