Cooker hob ignition jammed on

My 10 year old white westinghouse cooker hob is half gas half electric. (50cm by 59cm; brown enamel, black controls).

Yesterday the gas ignition started firing every second and I can't stop it. I've taken the button cover off and cleaned it but no change. Tried clicking away frequently but no good either. Tried turning power off at wall and off again but no good either. It is firing on each of the two gas heads, so I guess it is somewhere between the ignition button and the workings on the hob.

SOURCE: Gas Hob constant ignition clicking

Had the same problem. All five burners were continuously igniting, after my wife had given the stove a clean. Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on, the constant igniting had stopped. Thank you all. I love the internet :-)

Severely reduced gas supply to hobs while grill


Valve at back of cooker that isolates gas to the hobs when the lid is lowered is sticking. Move lid up and down half a dozen times or oil it to ease it.

Wiring a cooker top


Thios induction hob (Electrolux) has 4 wires - Y/G, brown. blue and black.
The Y/G is obviously the Earth conductor, and I would assume normality says that
Brown is the live conductor and Blue the neutral conductor.
The quandry is whether or not to disconnect the black wire completely, as this appears to have no function in a domestic wiring circuit.

Regards, Albert.

Smeg SE64 Gas cook top


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
