Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

The FD number is the age of the appliance which shows it was made in August 2003.

So I am clear your getting gas out of the jet and can light the burner with a match, but your not getting any sparks from the electrode?

Does the model you have have a separate ignition button or is the ignition built into the gas control for each burner?

Hi James I can light the gas on each of the individual rings with a match I can’t see any electrode sparks It seems a separate ignition for each burner

Sorry for the delay in responding, please see the spare spark generator/ignition here for around £40
