A burner that plugs into a receptacle is easy to test. After turning off the range's power at the main electrical panel, just unplug the non-heating burner, plug it into another working receptacle, restore the power to the range, and test it. If the burner works, you know its original receptacle is probably faulty. If it doesn't work in the good receptacle, the burner is bad and should be replaced. Buy a replacement, and simply plug it into the receptacle.

When you remove the burner, look for burned wires or a charred receptacle. Check the receptacle or terminal block to see if it's cracked, loose, or looks burned. If you notice any of the above signs, replace the faulty component, too. If the male burner prongs are corroded, always change the female receptacle it was plugged into.

Hope this helps

Remove the burners and clean them.

Dry them well and ensure that they are being installed properly.

This should fix the problem.

    I also quote the more extensive explanation given by Repair clinic:

    "The most
    common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't
    light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the
    burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have
    small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create
    a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a
    small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these
    vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.

    solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear
    the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and
    try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat
    the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician."

have this done by a gas fitter as it is not just a matter of different jets but also an adjustment of the air shroud around those jets to obtain a clear flame at the flame rings (hobs)

How does my hob cut out after it has been on for a while then when it cools down I can put it on again

It's possible that there's a connection which is affected by the heat, or there's a faulty thermal cutout.

Search online under "zanussi model***** faults" and see what turns up. Also contact zanussi helpdesk online.

If there is only enough gas for the pilot, it is very likely the main gas ciontrol valve is either in need of replacement or the "hot wire" sensor is in the wrong place or broken.
Basically the hot wire determines if the pilot is lit before turning on the main gas supply valve. It is a safety feature to dissapoint the suicidal.

I suggest this is fitted by a gas engineer as a leak at the valve can be very dangerous.

Zanussi Oven Fan ''Ringing''

Your fan blade is probably touching the metal shroud around it or the blade is loose. You can check this by gaining access to the fan and visually looking at it. Please do not do this with the unit plugged in, electricity kills. I hope this helps.
