    Are you talking about the range hood venting the steam from cooking or the gas exhaust flue?

There are special fans that are used for this. Use the web to look up exhaust fans. Normally used for boilers, tumble dryers where the distance required to run is further than the fan supplied with the item can push it. The fan will need to be wired in so that the gas cannot be turned on until the fan is running. Pick the fan that best matches flue diameter, temp, and distance

    I am going to assume you hear the "clicking" sound when you try to light the burner.
    open the top of the stove. there are four burner. look at the one that is not lighting. use a straighten paper clip open the holes that is directly in-front of the tube that is facing the center of ignitor.
    also make sure that the air vent directly behind the knob is fully open.

    the reason for the fitting instruction for the regulator to be connected directly is that flex hoses deteriorate and allow a dangerous situation
    AS gas is not in the diy domain I recommend that you get in an accredited gas fitter who will make a solid pipe to allow the fitment of the regulator away from the motor
    While he is there he can adjust the regulator to get it all working correctly

    Cooktop burner problem

    Your plumber should know that the pipe service your cooker must be of a suitable size. Normal half inch pipe is only good for a couple of small burners. Most installations require one inch! There is a simple formulae for working out the flow rate of the gas. Your gas installer will know it.
