Cannot ignite central gas ring on smeg 5-ring kitchen hob

Surrounding four gas rings ignite satisfactorily, but not the "wok" unit in the middle. Spark is visible and the gas comes through, but gas just builds up, makes a spectacular bang and then goes out.

Only about four months old so a bit bewildering.

Still in warranty - get it repaired. Would not advise above solution as work needs to be carried out by CORGI engineer.

I had a similar problem on a different gas range but your problem seems the same as mine was.
I examined the underside of the burner and saw a little 'flash' left from the casting process and I filed it off. This made the problem worse; it wouldn't light at all anymore.
I tried the opposite, blocking off the burner channel from the gas feed pipe to the spark gap; problem solved. It hasn't had a hiccough since.
I can only imagine that the flow of gas toward the spark gap was so strong, the gas was blowing itself out.
Not knowing exactly how the underside of your burner looks or how the gas is partially diverted to the spark gap but I drilled a small hole in the casting, inserted a length of copper wire (the gauge used in house wiring), then 'tuned' the flow by clipping part of the wire off and trying it. It might have taken all of 15 minutes to correct the annoying problem.

Flame leaking under lower ring. Common?


no it is a problem with the hob

consider this

as it is a rental property it is the responsibility of the land lord to get a gas fitter in to fix / replace the problem

If you do not ask him to fix it , if there is a problem and the thing explodes, catches fire or gases some one to death, there is every possibility that he will try to blame you for not reporting it

if he refuses to fix it or tries to fix it himself then I would advise that you seek alternative rental accommodation as the problem is for an accredited gas fitter and not a landlord.

The igniter spark for all gas rings remains on permanently without pressing down the gas flow knobs. I can see nothing prompted this - I just came into the kitchen one morning to hear the igniter clicking...


This could be a problem with your spark module. its an electronic box either behind or under the cooktop. it sends the spark to the spark tip, which then ignites he gas. So in my opinion i would say it is your spark module.

I had a similar problem and discovered that the control knob had fried itself, most likely due to liquid penetration down the shaft of the control knob and into the control knob electronics. Inside is a printed circuit board with resistor, diode and a rheostat. The surface of the board was charred beyond repair.
To trouble shoot the problem, open the cook top and hook the burner in question to one of the known good control knobs. If it ignites, then it is the control knob electronics. If it doesn’t, then there is something wrong with the igniter.
Note: The 2-zone Wok Burner had a different control knob that the other burners.
To open the cook top, do NOT loosen any of the Phillips screws on the sides. Here are the instructions from the user manual:
Disassembly
Shut off gas supply, disconnect the manifold pipe, disconnect the electrical power. Remove pan supports, burner heads and burner rings. Remove control knobs.
In the event that the hob is built in, undo the bracket clamps underneath the work surface. Lift the hob on to the work surface. Unscrew the venturis on the high-speed and super high-speed burners using a 20 mm wrench. Lift and remove the burner rings and burner base plates. Disconnect the wires from the ignition plugs. Keep the wire from dropping into the undertray by inserting it in one of the slots in the burner supports.
Remove the three screws securing the dual ring wok burner. Remove the wok burner base plate. Lift the ceramic tray from the hob.
Note: Each regulator shaft is equipped with a black ring. This ring may cling to the rubber seal in the ceramic tray. Check and remove the rings from the rubber seals.

problem with hob is probably water ingress in area of ignition unit - will probably cure itself oven is a completely separate unit from hob. problem with it is that you have to re-set the clock - you have it on automatic. after power outage, oven clock always has to be reset
