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

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

Hello,
Take a closer look at the wiring diagram on the base or in the book.Check you have put in the relevant links.If not wired properly you may only get half the hob working.

Hope this helps.

How can a Smeg gas hob be made safe when the flame goes out or it is accidentally turned on when cleaning the top.


The device that turns off the gas supply when the flame goes out, is called a thermocouple. If your cooktop model was not fitted with this device, you will need to turn off power at power point or fit a gas isolation ****.(Local gas and power laws)

Smeg gas hob ignition


There is a problem with the board. It has malfunctioned onto an ignition mode. By switching it off, it shows the capacitor is holding chage untill flat.(Hence the continual sparking) Replace it.

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


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.

Stuck auto ignition


Either one of the ignition switches are stuck down internally or the ignition pack is faulty, no other possible cause. Regards Advisor
