Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
The three burners on the top of the range will not light.
You either have an issue with gas flow from the control valves or with the piezoelectric gas igniters. Turn the knob to low and try lighting the burners by hand. If they work, then your problem is not gas flow but the ignition. Turn the knobs to light and see if each burner clicks and you see sparks at the igniters. If you are not seeing a spark, try cleaning up the igniter tips. If that doesn't do it, it is probably time to call the service technician (or the Hotpoint Customer Service hotline).

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.
