LOFRA Rangehood and Oven Parts
Lofra is an Italian kitchen appliance company that focuses on producing ovens, cookers and overhead fans. They make all of their products in Italy, so finding replacement parts can be more difficult than finding parts for domestic brand ovens and rangehoods. Depending on your own experience with fixing appliances, replacing parts in a defective rangehood or oven by yourself may not be advisable. A professional may be necessary to replace oven parts.History
Lofra first began by producing large pots after World War II from scrap war material. This led them to experiment with range cookers, eventually designing and selling a line. Since the 1980's, they have produced stovetop ranges, oven hoods, ovens and hobs. They have a range of built-in and stand-alone ovens available, in gas and electric. The majority of distributors are in Europe and the Middle East, along with one distributor in South Africa and another in Brazil. Unfortunately, due to their limited availability, it can be difficult to find products and replacement parts in some countries.European Design
Typical of European design, Lofra ovens are great for compact kitchens. They are purposeful, with enough room for food to cook in the oven and multiple pots and pans on the stovetop. Six burners is not uncommon with Italian stovetops. Traditional and contemporary ovens and rangehoods are easy to find, and because Lofra bases its operations in Italy, including all of the parts manufacturing, the quality is superior to that of products from other countries where labour is cheap.Rangehood Parts
Rangehoods, also known as exhaust hoods and extractor hoods, help circulate air and remove airborne grease and fumes from the stove area. Heat and steam also evacuates from the stovetop and filter. Lofra rangehood oven fans help to prevent kitchen fires and are used in many commercial kitchens; however, they can be used in a home kitchen. Because it is a form of filtration, the filters sometimes need replacing, and other mechanical parts, like the power pack, may need replacement. Luckily, because there is a simple functionality for a rangehood, to extract and filter air, it is simpler to replace and there are fewer problems that can arise.Oven Parts
Ovens often need replacements for parts that get a lot of use. Doors, hinges and seals are all in cooking and baking appliances, and are more likely to deteriorate as a result. While replacing an oven door seal may be simple, replacing a Lofra rangehood oven thermostat may require more technical knowledge. Oven elements, ignitions, and lights are all replaceable. When choosing replacement parts, it is important to select parts that are compatible with your model of oven. This may mean only buying Lofra oven parts, or it may mean buying parts compatible with your Lofra oven.
