Gas hob is very difficult to start. have to hold
I've just had this prob on an inherited (just moved into new house) A2. Thought I was losing the plot as followed instructions to the letter re starting gas hobs. Got an engineer in to give the ecking thing a general service & told him about the hob. He said I wasn't pressing the knob hard enough. If you press the knob enough to make the ignition click, press the knob a bit further (it will go a bit further "in" honest). If you do that it should start like a good 'un (I felt sooo daft). Something to do with magnets!! Anyway, give it a try (this works for me unfortunately I've had the damn inner glass on the main oven go pop - yes, infront of an engineer twice in less than ten days. Knobs aside, I'm starting to go off this cooker. I want to cook to eat not have a "pretty" in the kitchen!).
