Surface Burner Won’t Light

A very common cooker hob problem is that the surface burner won’t light, this simply needs relighting. This could be caused by the pilot light’s having been extinguished or the burner portholes getting clogged. If this happens, know that your cooker hob is equipped with an electric igniter. Make sure the stove is plugged in and, if so, check the circuit breaker if it is not tripped. 

Weak Burner Flame

If the burner flame on top of the cooker hob appears to have weaker flames than normal. Then the problem could be a clogged burner flame opening. Low-quality flames could also be caused by too little gas or too little air getting to the burner. Adjust the air shutter to see if the problem is air. If that does not work then you can opt to call for a professional appliance repair service if you suspect the problem is something worrisome.


Noisy Surface Burner Flame
