Trouble lighting gas hob

I have a Siemens EC715RB90E 5 ring gas hob and since installation last August it has been a tempramental lighter! It rarely lights first time and the central double ring wok burner is very difficult to light. It can be heard and seen to be 'sparking' and to gas switches on and looks to be burning well but as soon as you let go of the knob it goes out. I have held the knob down to give it a chance to warm up etc but it can still take in excess of 15 attempts to light.

SOURCE: Cannot ignite central gas ring on smeg 5-ring kitchen hob

Still in warranty - get it repaired. Would not advise above solution as work needs to be carried out by CORGI engineer.

SOURCE: When lighting one of the burners, the ingnition knob has to be held down over ten seconds for the flame to stay lit when the knob is released..

Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.

hope that helped.

Miele KM 320 G gas cooktop ignitor


I had a similar problem and discovered that the control knob had fried itself, most likely due to liquid penetration down the shaft of the control knob and into the control knob electronics. Inside is a printed circuit board with resistor, diode and a rheostat. The surface of the board was charred beyond repair.
To trouble shoot the problem, open the cook top and hook the burner in question to one of the known good control knobs. If it ignites, then it is the control knob electronics. If it doesn’t, then there is something wrong with the igniter.
Note: The 2-zone Wok Burner had a different control knob that the other burners.
To open the cook top, do NOT loosen any of the Phillips screws on the sides. Here are the instructions from the user manual:
Disassembly
Shut off gas supply, disconnect the manifold pipe, disconnect the electrical power. Remove pan supports, burner heads and burner rings. Remove control knobs.
In the event that the hob is built in, undo the bracket clamps underneath the work surface. Lift the hob on to the work surface. Unscrew the venturis on the high-speed and super high-speed burners using a 20 mm wrench. Lift and remove the burner rings and burner base plates. Disconnect the wires from the ignition plugs. Keep the wire from dropping into the undertray by inserting it in one of the slots in the burner supports.
Remove the three screws securing the dual ring wok burner. Remove the wok burner base plate. Lift the ceramic tray from the hob.
Note: Each regulator shaft is equipped with a black ring. This ring may cling to the rubber seal in the ceramic tray. Check and remove the rings from the rubber seals.
To order parts, call 1-800-245-8215, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM EST

Safety lock on Neff hob


I have a Neff T4344N0/08. I cannot stop all four hobs flashing - ie: I press the 'on' button all four flash, I then choose which one I want to use plus the number but they all keep flashing instead of stopping after the usual three or four. Please help - have I pressed something I shouldn't, perhaps a child lock?
