Electric ignition to hob seems to be jammed

I have an indesit k642r oven/hob. The electric spark that ignites the gas hob rings has developed a mind of it's own and keeps sparking every 10 seconds, how do I stop this?

One igniter produces no spark. is it bad? can i


Looks like you may have a bad ignitor. Try adjusting the arc gap. Sometimes of the ignitor is too close to the burner, the ignitor will not spark. It may also be that te burner is dirty and needs a little cleaning to allow for the electric ignitor spark to arc accross, thus producing ignition. Good luck.

Smeg gas hob ignition


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.

Gas hob ignition


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 :)

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

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
