Smeg gas hob issues.

I have a smeg hob. Only 2 years old.From time to time when its in use and when its not in use, the hob pilot light/spark starts to light. Its that flicking sound with the spark, and only when I turn the big hob on does it stop. I am worried there is a gas leak, but I dont smell any. Also it happens when I am not in the house so could be dangerous.Its just really strange the cooker tries to light itself almost.
please help. thanks a lot g

Ghazwan,

Relax. The problem is in the switch that is activated when you turn the gas on. It has either misaligned or broken. The gas itself is not involved. Generally, raising the top of the burner area will gain access to the switch and valve. Inspect and readjust or replace. Oh, and disconnect the electricity before touching the switch itself.

SMEG SE435X-1 60CM Electric hob. Keeps tripping fuse


It's possible that one of the burners stay on for a long time, which cause one of the wires to overheat, breaking the connection and touching the body of the unit, please turn the breaker off and check for a loose connection, replace the wiring if you feel confortable doing it yourself or contact a technician.

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.

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
