Neff problem where igniters dont stop...the hob top is held by the 4 knobs which pull off, then 8 small phillips screws, 2 by each burner...underneath the knobs you will find a plastic slider which has a the spring OK? does the slider slide! a little WD40 might make things go a little better, maybe stretch the spring a little and make sure that the 4 rubber seals where the knobs go thru the top are fitted correctly and don't foul the slider.
That fixed it for me. We had been putting up with that problem for years and stopping the igniter by flicking another knob. In fact it only worked properly for a few months after new.

I used some 3 in 1 oil on the plastic slider and it slid much easier allowing the spring to bring the slider back and the switch off. It is not a good design because the reactive force of the switch tends to make the slider bend up at the switch end and causes the track to bind. My guess is that is will need re-lubricating again in a while. A stronger spring might be another solution.

This is caused by a failing flame switch. It will have a copper line coming from the pilot igniton block back to a switch that will have two wires on it. usually these are blue and white in color.

Hope this helps Ya

I have a Neff 5 burner hob. The middle burner will not stay lit. A small amount of gas runs around the grey gas dispenser while trying to light the hob with the igniter depressed. It then fizzles out...

Some gas appliances have a thermal couple. it could be dirty at its base connection. If possible clean that area with alcohol

always unplug electricity before attempting to repair on any electrical appliance .
