Oven & hob taking a long time to come on(on FULL pressure)
When initially igniting either the grill or the oven, both will ignite but ''gas'' is only on very low.
Sometimes it takes up to 3 or 4 minutes before they ''fire'' up and I get full pressure.
I only use ONE at a time as per makers instructions,if it's the grill I always leave the oven door open,and if the oven the door remains closed.
Cooling fan is operational.
Can you please help? why are they on what I would term as ''low pressure'' ?
regards Mr M Cartwright

Hello mick1939. Are the ignitors the clicking/sparking type or the glow bar type?
If they are the glow bar type, when they get older they don't send enough amps to the gas safety valve thus only letting a small amount of gas to the burners. Try replacing them if they are glow bars.

Not normally batteries, most are mains powered, but your is a single AA battery. The manual states;
The battery is not covered by the guarantee. Use an alkaline AA battery. The battery holder is located in the plinth panel below the oven door. Open the oven door fully. Press the tag on the left hand side of the battery holder/cover and withdraw it just enough to get access to the battery. Fit the new battery with the end marked "+" on the same side of the battery holder as the red lead. Replace the battery holder by pushing it firmly into the hole in the plinth.
The spark unit is usually under the hob on the left side. Check the connections as they can get really messy and even break through. Also spray the igniter posts with oven cleaner and leave for an hour, clean off with a plastic brush and water. Dry thoroughly. On the hobs, remove the burner and wash them, the underside as well as they rely on the earthing through the aluminium ring, remove and clean that too.
The quality of new stuff is not as good at the old, but they are shiny and clean to start with.
With the upper burners, they have just a standard gas igniter, but you say there is no gas. This can only be cause by two things, but most likely a blocked jet for some reason. The only other reason is a faulty control.
The grill is the same, some share igniters, some have one for each of the three department, hobs, grill, ovens.
So your choice is buy a new one or get a service engineer in. It is gas, so you shouldn't really work on this on your own for safety reasons.
I have a delongi oven and hob hob is working fine but the oven isnot im turning the nob on the front of the oven and ignition on lighting is fine after I release the knob on the front the supply turns striaght off no flame no gas nothing
More that likely your just got the cleaning solution you used on the igniter/in the burner. Light the burners with a match and let them burn for a little bit of time. This usually works. If not you might have to clean the igniter and make sure it is creating a spark for ignition.
if the grill is constant sparking when the oven was on and turns off when the oven is not in use then u either have a defective pcb/ht lead or electrode if it is self lighting or if you have to push in a button then this button or control will have a problem
