Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.
Does this hob have a button that you press to initiate the spark, or does it spark as you turn each gas control valve?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Rob, You press and turn each button. The initial press initiates the spark which occurs on each burner (6 in all including the wok burners).

I must comment that one of the knobs does not seem to fully return upwards.

Am I required to pay a further £27 ?

Expert:  Rob replied 2 years ago.

NO, you only pay once !!

There is a switch in each gas tap. As you turn the knob, this actuates the switch which turns on the spark
The one that does not return correctly is almost certainly the one that is keepint the switch activated.
You will need to dismantle the hob to gain access to the knob and the switch to see which is causing the issue.
You may find that some lubricant on the knob itself may cure this
