Ok its a bit strange how its all the burners that's doing this as they all have there own valve but for all of them to do this its possiley a fault with the valve on the gas bottle itself as when you connect the gas to the oven the gas goes through the pipes to each valve and then when you turn it it will send the gas to the burner. So there isn't a valve that opens from the back of the cooker were you attach the gas supply to going to the burner valves. So as its taking a long time for the gas to start coming though then I think the fault lies with the supply bottle or the valve on the gas bottle itself for this to happen im afraid. So check that valve on the bottle and if you have a replacement then worth trying that as the fault is looking like its something to do with that im afraid. Regards
