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 spring...is 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 need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top


most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

Will not stop ticking when it is burning


If the ignitor continues to click and spark after the burner is lit you have a faulty "ignition module" and it will need to be replaced. Here is the part to order.

The ignition keeps on sparking after the burner is lit.


How old oof a unit is it? The burners switches when on will operate ignitors for all burners no matter which switch is "turned on". Usually when units get older these switches on the most "often used" burners will stick and stay "connected" then all ignitors will continue to spark this is also true if switches accidentally get wet with spillage or water till they dry out. No danger though because jsut because ignitor is sparking doesnt mean gas is being released, gas is only released when valves are turned on

Ignition on gas hob fails sometimes on certains burners


open the hob covers with a screw driver and check the wires that carry the spark are intact and haven't been chewed by a rodent ie (RAT/MOUSE) like my one had been :-)

Ignitors continue to fire even after the burner is lit


The switch sounds like it is bad. It has ; off, lowest setting going up to highest, then light, that's what makes the spark or clicking, right. Is this the top burners and do they all do this? If the ignite module runs too long it could over heat and burn out. But if they are all doing this you have a problem with it or the relay anyway.

Ignitors keep firing by themselves after my aunt cleaned them 24 hours ago After she did the major cleaning of the stove I used the oven and it worked fine. I lit a burner (Probably front?) and the left...


If they ignitors worked properly before you aunt cleaned them, the problem could be with the way they were cleaned and what they were cleaned with. Please tell me how she cleaned them and with what. Also, had she cleaned them before without incurring any problems, or was this the first time she had cleaned them?

Problem with gas double oven


im in uk not us so don't know this particular appliance. however many gas appliances turn on the ignitors for other parts than the one required - ie if one burner on a hob is lit, the other ignitors spark as well. suspect you don't really have a fault
