Hob ignition only works on one ring

The dometic 2 burner hob in our Rockabilly has a glitch.
One of the rings is not sparking when I press the starter button. The other works fine.

Any ideas?

I've lived with a similar issue since new. I believe JohnE said the earthing problem lies with the individual hob connection underneath. It is a pain to get at. Lowdham "repaired" mine at 1st service but it has never been perfect and they left the hob loose. I araldited the hob retaining screws into work surface, as they would not hold, and now use a hand held igniter.

Thanks Colin.

That makes sense. I am sure if I could lift the hob (or remove the fridge!?), it would be a simple fix, but not sure how to approach that.

Iíll live with it, and see if can be addressed as a warranty repair at the first service.

I think that would be best, but I'd report the fault to the dealer now so they have a record.

Thanks Randa

Thatís good advice. In my case the ring stays lit once itís lit. But I have to use a match because thereís no spark when I press the button. The other ring sparks and lights every time.

I can only assume a loose connection to the igniter as Colin mentioned?
