Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition system to light each burner – this system consists of a spark control module installed in the control panel, and an igniter on each individual hob. Whether one hob or several is not working properly, if you follow the following steps we can determine exactly what it is that’s at fault using only a screwdriver.
- Examine the sparks made by each of the hobs and compare them to eachother. A well-functioning ignition will make 3 to 5 blue sparks every second, so if one doesn’t perform as well as the others you know that ignition is bad.
- Listen out for the frequency of the sparks – an igniter which works correctly will steadily create 3 to 5 sparks every second, so if they are slower it may be the result of reverse polarity. If you’re in a situation where no sparks are being created whatsoever, the spark module needs replacing.
- You may also want to check if there is any food stuck to the igniter as this may prevent it from sparking.
- Lastly, you may want to try pulling the cooker away from the wall, unplugging the power cord, and removing the back panel by taking the screws out with a screwdriver. Then examine the spark module for any misplaced wires, or any signs of damage.
