Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: This has been occurring for a while and I usually light up with match.
Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

A new electrode can be sourced here for around £20, as with any gas appliance you will require a gas engineer to fit it.
