Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Should the hob spark as you turn the gas knob, or does it have a seperate ignition button?
Have you recently cleaned the hob ot had a spill?
Do you know the model number and age?

Thanks
Rob

The hob sparks before the gas knob is turned and do not have separate ignition button.

other than normal wipe clean is done regularly and has not had any spill.

I am not too sure about the model but I bought this from COMMET in Nov 1999

Hi Dil

Thanks

There are a series of switches linked to each gas knob.
Normally, as you turn the knob, it activates the switch for the spark
It sounds like one of the switches is permanantly activated
This would mean stripping the hob and replacing the part
If this is something you feel able to do, please look onto the base of the hob, from the
cupboard underneath and give me the ENr from the plate there

In the meantime,
