I have a gas hob installed in 2006. The ignition has stopped

Customer Question

I have a gas hob installed in 2006. The ignition has stopped working. I have cleaned all the hob, dried it but although the gas is flowing OK there is no ignition spark. I have also changed the fuse in the plug. Why is the ignition not working on any of the 5 burners?

Good afternoon Diane,

If the ignition has failed on all burners, this would suggest a faulty spark generator, or grounding.

If it were a electrode or switch this wouldnt affect all of the burners, the only part in common between sparking all the burners is the generator, a replacement would cost around £30, such as the one here.

With this being a gas appliance you would need a gas safe engineer to attend to replace the part and re-commission the hob, if you would like me to recommend a suitable engineer please provide me with your postcode.
