Gas hob ignition

Please can someone suggest a solution: My gas hob has an electric ignition switch. I ran out of LPG, refilled it, and now the switch doesn't spark/click. It was going perfectly before running out of gas (it was definitely empty as I was cooking at the time). The electrics are fine as I tested with an extension cord.it seems strange that the ignition should break at the same time as gas runs out. It's only 3 years old. Any suggestions very welcome, thanks....

1) try leaving it off for a while to see if the ingition box needs to reset
2)when you turn on the burnner does the ignition start by itself or do you have to "ignite" the burnner yourself?
3) if oyu have to ignite the burnner yourself, try using a bbq lighter to see if the gas has gotten to your range yet.
4) if no gas present, there is ussually a reset in the regulator. it needs to be reset if it gets low on pressure. you need to have the lines connected and then turn on the gas AND then the appliance. if the appliance is turned on before the gas in turned on the rest will pop.
lets us know what happens :)

Trying to get hold of a fitting instruction leaflet plus list of spare parts for a gas hob code no. E4NE T2484SOEU/01


Why do you need a fitting manual ? Any competent gas engineer should know the contents of BS6172 / BS6891 which both apply to the fitting of domestic gas cookers / hobs. What spares do you need. You can get a spares inventory from Neff. Ensure that it is the correct appliance for the fuel gas you are connecting to. The jet sizes for LPG & Natural Gas are very different.

Hob ignition switch keeps on clicking.


Hi
Glad to Help you!!
Take the knob off, them remove the cover that housed the switches, OK, Now, Look at the switch that is continiusly clicking and it will have two wires goin onto it, remove these wires and just lift the sending unit, and inspect it for water, grease etc ect....clean and dry and put back on and try again it should work, if it does not work, then just get a replacement one, they are not expensive, I just replaced two on my Jenn-Air myself and it cost me $25.00.
Hope this will help!!

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
