Good afternoon, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will help you today.

This kind of issue crops up quite a lot, and invariably it's a question of letting the ignition system dry out. I recommend that you turn off the power to the hob and use a manual igniter (such as the one below) for a couple of days. In the meantime light each burner and boil some water in a saucepan so that the area around the burner gets nice and warm, to hasten the evaporation. You can also use a hairdryer to help it along.


There's no time pressure on this topic - it will stay open to you for many days, and you can reply at any time. I will be away from my desk sometimes, but will respond as soon as I can.
