You need to clean up burner and the sparker head from dirt which acts like isolator and prevent spark to jump. Burner must have metal to metal contact with the range casing in order to work. Grease, oil and burned liquids like milk act like isolators and prevent contact between burner and the casing (mass).

Just unplug the range from the wall, take off burner, scrub and wash off all the dirt from it and from its seat to the very metal. Dry it out completely and put back in place. Plug in the range and give it a try.

Electric spark starter on one of the burner runs continuously


check the spark head on that particular burner first for dirt,they all need to be clean to recognize the flame after ignition and sense the flame to shut off the sparker module after ignition,and if not you will need to replace the spark module that fires the sparkers itself,but try cleaning sparkers and underneath where the wires connect to the sparkers first for contamination,its cheaper than starting to replace parts

Try cleaning the sparker with file to better the spark. If you can adjust the angle of the sparker closer to the gas nozzle would help to.

When we have a power failure, should the "sparker" still work


I don't believe so. It is usually electric powered. You should be able to light very carefully with a match by lighting the match first and then turning the gas on slowly with the match up close to the burner.

Zanussi Oven Fan ''Ringing''


Your fan blade is probably touching the metal shroud around it or the blade is loose. You can check this by gaining access to the fan and visually looking at it. Please do not do this with the unit plugged in, electricity kills. I hope this helps.

Smeg gas hob issues.


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.
