Customer: No, the hob has served us well and still looks good

Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your hob. Lets see if i can help you on this.

When this happens its the gas tap for that burner that siezes up in there and it usually needs to be replaced.

If you are looking at fixing yourself then as its part of the gas system you will need to be checked for gas leaks.
