Many hobs have a thermocouple which is like a small rod sticking up into the flame. when this is heated up, it holds the gas valve in. if the thermocouple has failed the gas valve will release as soon as you let go of the knob. only solution is to replace the thermocouples

My becko gas cooker is new and when i turn the oven on the hob ignitors keep clicking what do i do pls

So when you are turning the oven on, It is the same process as your cooktop. you turn the knob to ignite( so its clicking) and once it catches fire you back off the knob to adjust your flame. the oven is the same. its just bthat all your igniters will want to light at the same time, but gas is only being fed to the location of whatever knob your turning. omnce oven is lit, turn back the knob to dedired temp setting. hope that amsers your question. good luck. Or, if no gas is getting to the location, make sure the valve for your gas is on.

I have an old belling farmhouse cooker the hob works fine but the oven isn't igniting manually or by the electric ignition The timer is manual and is stuck on the red patch I can't seem to shift it ...

, push in and turn the control knob to the full on position (large flame symbol). If your hob has an ignition switch on the facia, press it in until your burner lights. • Hold the control knob in for 15 seconds then release. If the burner fails to light within this time, release the control knob and wait one minute before attempting to re-ignite.
Push in the control knob and after a couple of seconds press the ignition switch. • Hold the control knob in for 15 seconds then turn to desired heat, If the burner fails to light within this time, release the control knob and wait one minute before attempting to re-ignite.

How to lift a2 smeg cooker hob

remove cast iron pot stands and pull off all knobs and small timer buttons. lower the oven doors and look up under the panel holding the knobs and you'll see a screw at each end, remove them. you can now remove the stainless switch panel, (swing the bottom out first) you can now get access to screws at each top corner which should be removed. you can now lift the top panel of the cooker by about 5 inches when a pivoted stay should drop down each side to allow you to rest the top in an open position.

I have a Smeg Range cooker A1 (electric oven, 6 ring gas hob). I have the following problem with just one of the rings - it sparks and the gas lights normally, but when I eventually let go of the knob...

It could sometimes be a thermocouple that is not properly mounted against the flame or is just defective, these thermocouples are mounted for safety because it would not be good if gas flows out of gas for a long time without flame in professional gas equipment, the gas flow is often Many times higher, by the way a nice device and good brand.
I think the damage is very common here. By hand, you might also be able to take it yourself if there is technical knowledge and with the proper attention on gas sealing. look a few examples of your problem from of the link about this.

Belling G755 Cooker oven wont stay lit

I'll give this a go! With a cooker like this, you depress and then turn the control knob, press the ignition button and continue to depress the control knob for a few seconds. This is because a device called a thermocouple is heated by the flame and you have to continue to depress the control knob so that sufficient gas flows to heat up the thermocouple. If the thermocouple does not get hot or stay hot then the gas valve is automatically closed - stopping the gas. The thermocouple is a 'flame failure' safety device. If the gas gets cut off then the flame goes out and the thermocouple goes cold switching off the gas valve automatically. However, you are having to try and manually keep the gas going for a good five minutes. I would think that there is either a problem with the thermocouple or the gas control valve! Tony

Gas Hob constant ignition clicking

Had the same problem. All five burners were continuously igniting, after my wife had given the stove a clean. Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on, the constant igniting had stopped. Thank you all. I love the internet :-)
