Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your appliance?

Expert:  JamesI replied 10 days ago.

If the ignition has stopped working it suggests you may have bent or got a cleaning agent on the electrode, which is preventing the spark generated leaving the electrode and lighting the gas.

Should the electrode need replacing you can source it here, but due to the appliance being gas it will need to be installed by a gas safe engineer

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask them!
My goal is to offer you the best possible experience!
