Question about Cooktops
I have had the gas fitter return to test for leaks. He has soap and water tested the fittings on the supply line for leaks which proved to be OK. He shut off the supply valve at the gas meter and checked for any usage will the appliances switched off. the meter didn't register any consumption.Is there a possibility that unburnt gas could be accumulating within the appliance housing and then dissipating after the control knobs are shut off? Is there any recorded leakage problems between the control knob and the burners.
Call your gas company again. What you don't want is an explosion! PDQ!!!

Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.

Try cleaning around all the ignitors at each burner. Look for build up of cleansing product and/or food. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning and removal of a buildup to solve this. Worth trying before replacing a bunch of parts!

The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.
