Customer Question

One of the burners on my gas hob is not lighting. All the others are ok. What can I do to fix it, please?

Customer: Siemens EC7 or EC8. Difficult to see from the pictures in the handbook.
JA: How long has this been going on with your Siemens hob? What have you tried so far?

JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I’ve just tried all the burners again and the wok one is not lighting either though the other 3 are fine.

Good evening,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

Unplug it and give it a good clean, then blow some air with hair dryer from safe distance.

It should now work however, if the issue is still there then igniter is faulty and will need replacement.

As this is a gas appliance it is recommended that the repair is done only by Gas safe engineer.

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.

I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.

Have a wonderful evening.
