7 Common Cooker Oven Breakdown Problems and Ways to Fix them
Cooker oven is a home delight but can be fraught with problems, though your cooker insurance should kick in when you have a cooker breakdown, below are the top 7 problems you may encounter with your cooker oven and how to fix them.
1) Gas burner doesn’t light up on the cooker
Food debris and remains
This could be an accumulation of grease or bits of food – it is one of the most common causes for a gas burner that fails to ignite, debris blocking gas flow to the igniter. To rectify, begin by taking off grate on the non-igniting burner. After this, remove the burner cap, which should lift off easily. The sealed burner base will either lift off or you may need to remove some screws before taking it off. Clean the area around with a warm, soapy washcloth. Soak the sealed burner base in a warm water and vinegar mix. Apply a hard brush to the area to get rid of any unwanted debris. Make sure in the hard-to-reach burner holes there are no bit of food or other obstructions. Use a toothpick, sewing needle or compressed air for this delicate operation. Reinstall the burner, cover and the grill, and hit the ignition once again. if this fails to do the trick, there could be a kink in the gas supply pipe or a more general issue. For this, you would do well to speak to your local specialist.
A loose connection
There are none to very few moving parts on an over top, yet it is still the case that connections can lose their original tightness, particularly during cleaning or installation. If the wires which connect the igniter to the control module do not have a firm connection, there will not be the spark needed to properly ignite the burner. To attempt a fix, disconnect the oven by unplugging it or turning off at the breaker switch. Take the grate and burner cap away from the burner at issue. Also take away the sealed burner base. Inspect and feel around gently for connections that look or feel loose or any disconnected wires. Re-establish the tightness of loose connections and reconnect any disconnected wires, put back burner base, cap, and grate. Turn the power back on the stove and test.
A faulty igniter
If you have removed debris from the burner base and seen to any loose connections, the issue may be a faulty igniter. A quick test of whether igniter requires replacement is by making the room dark and turning the control dial into the regular ignite position. If the igniter sparks yellow or orange instead of a bright bluish-white, the igniter will likely need replacing.
To check, disconnect gas and electricity power to the oven, take away the burner cap and use a screwdriver to remove the burner base. Disconnect the wires from the igniter. Often, igniters have a quick disconnect system so there will not be any need for cutting or splicing wires.
Search the oven’s make and model number to determine the replacement igniter. If possible, install your new igniter, and then put back the burner base, cap and grate. Securely re-establish gas and power to the stove and test the burner. If this test doesn’t remedy your burner, a replacement of the igniter switch may be in order or the igniter control module. It is worth speaking to a trusted and preferably trained technician for a diagnosis.
2) The range burner will not heat up
On an electric stove, range burners require electricity to get to their job of cooking. If one of the electric burners fail to heat up, try out these quick tests:
Replace the non-heating burner with one that you know works. Simply unplug from the burner socket and plug the working one in. If this new burner starts to warm, the problem was the burner. Replace it.
If the new burner fails to warm up, by elimination the problem is the infinite switch or the socket. If the socket looks burned or damaged, a replacement could be in order. Try out the burner again after replacing the socket. If it still fails to warm up, switch out the old infinite switch with a new one and try the range burner again.
Faulty Cooker Burner
When a burner fails to warm up, the burner should be the first thing to be inspected. There could be a disconnection issue, or it may simply be burned out. Disconnection of the burner can be made by taking it out the block in the same way a power cord is pulled out. To determine whether the burner has broken, unplug a working burner from another block, plug it into the block of the malfunctioning burner and turn on the switch. If the replacement warms up, keep it in – replacement was needed. It is not necessary to unplug the stove to do this.
Faulty Cooker Block
If a burner doesn’t come up, the problem may be the block into which it is plugged. You may be able to confirm a bad block by lifting the stovetop and having a look at it if there are any burnt wires or burnt metal. You can also confirm by plugging in a working burner. Once confirmed that a block is bad, a replacement can go ahead, but first, the stove must be unplugged. Disconnect the stove’s terminal wires with a matching-head screwdriver. Once disconnected, unscrew the block from the stovetop and switch with a new one.
Faulty Cooker Switch
The heat-sensitive contacts inside a stove switch go through an ordinary process of wear and tear. They can get covered with carbon. As such, the contacts may not fail to engage the stove switch or, on the other hand, it may never disconnect. The result of the second condition is that it is not possible to control the burner’s temperature. We can confirm the switch is bad by testing continuity across its terminals with an ohmmeter after first unplugging the stove. The switch has two different lines – often marked L1 and L2 — for the two power legs that come into it and go out. Establish resistance continuity both of these. If there is a reading of no ohms, then the switch is faulty, and replacement is needed (it cannot be repaired).
3) Oven Doesn’t Heat
An oven that fails to warm is often because of a faulty igniter (for a gas oven) or heating element for an electric one. If both gas oven and gas burners have both failed, the gas line is the likely the weakest link and will require a professional repair. The heating element or igniter can be replaced by an unlicensed amateur though:
Take a screwdriver to get out the old igniter or heating element. These are often found inside the oven, while the igniter is accessible from below this
To gain access to the igniter, take out the broiler or storage drawer.
Ensure electricity is off to the oven.
Then, if the heating element is hidden, a trained professional will be needed to replace it.
CookerClock Not Set
If the heating element is fine, then it may be that the Clock not being set is a cause for your oven not heating up. If there has been a power cut the clock on your oven will probably need to re-set. As unlikely as it sounds, a clock that has been not set can cause your whole oven to stop heating up. This is a very easy fix though, so it’s the first thing to check if you’re having oven problems.
Just find the manual to your oven or download a PDF version by searching your make and model online to find out how to set the time on your make and model of oven.
If the clock is set as it should, the element is good, but heat is just not found in your oven it could be time to check your thermostat. First, check to see if the temperature indicator light is operational:
This is often a small light on the front of the oven that remains lit until it reaches the desired temperature.
If this light doesn’t come on at all this may be a sign of a broken thermostat and of the need for a replacement.
CookerThermal Cut Out
If the previous options have not offered any solutions, then test the thermal cut out. This small device automatically cuts your oven off if it gets too warm – as to avoid overheating.
To see if it is faulty:
Disconnect your appliance from the electrical supply, then find the two connections where electricity enters and exits the thermal cut out component.
Use a multi-meter and switch it to a low resistance setting.
Measure across the Cooker connections
You should find the same amount of resistance there as you would read it as though the two-meter probes were touched together.
Getting a different reading? This means that your thermal cut out has failed – and needs replacement
Once the correct part for your appliance has been found, see video guides on how to fix this yourself.
Cooker Terminal Block
This is another part of the oven to breakdown. The signs that suggest an issue with the terminal block include:
A Cooker clock that’s not displaying
Areas of the cooker that aren’t working
It is found at the back of the oven. There may be a number of circuits connected by links from the main power cords.
Ensure that the oven appliance is disconnected from the power supply before beginning.
If any link or connector is loose, this can produce heat and damage.
Look for signs of charring or lose connections.
If you do find damage, a replacement is the only option. Search for your make and model. Once you have the correct part, see any number of reputable repair guides to fix this yourself.
4) The Oven Doesn’t Heat to the Right Temperature
This could be a problem with the temperature sensor, the gas igniter or the heating element.
Inspect the temperature sensor. It should not touch inside the wall of the oven.
An ohmmeter should then be used to see if the sensor is working. The resistance should rise as the temperature of the oven warms.
If the resistance is not rising, and the sensor is not, then replace it.
Next, confirm that the heating element or gas igniter is operational. If not, replace.
If all has been seen to be working or has been replaced, then recalibrate the oven.
One way to do this is to heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. With an oven thermometer, check the temperature inside after twenty minutes, then every twenty minutes for the next ninety minutes to one-hundred-and-twenty.
Using your temperature readings, add them up and divide by the number of readings you took (four or five). This will be your oven’s average temperature.
Using this average, dial the oven temperature up or down dial as you see fit
If you cook something large like a whole chicken and notice parts are visibly more cooked than other patches of pink, the oven is cooking evenly. You should first check the heating elements and temperature sensor and preheat the oven for a quick test to see if the heating elements are all glowing red.
Using a multi-meter check that the temperature sensor’s resistance is rising with the temperature of the oven. If either is not working as they should, then replace either.
Learn how your oven cooks since all appliances are different. Uneven cooking could be the result of the position of the racks or the cookware.
Baking dishes are supposed to be reflective. If they have become grimy, try a deep clean or get a replacement.
Noting how the oven usually cooks and making adjustments such as rotating the food or adjusting the height of the racks for certain foods can help if all other options have been ticked off.
5) The oven door will not shut
If your oven door fails to close all the way or hangs unevenly, this could be for a few reasons.
Unplug the oven for safety. If yours is a gas model, make sure the gas is off before you begin.
Remove the door carefully to examine the hinges. Pulling straight up then out on the door will release most hinges. These hinges are only attached to the door, not the oven. If in doubt and this doesn’t work, consult your manufacturer’s manual first.
Alternatively, if this is not the issue, check the door springs to see if they are broken. Slide-out the bottom drawer and inspect underneath the oven for the springs between the oven and the door. Not all appliances are designed with springs. However, springs can break as they wear over time.
If a spring breaks, use pliers to open the ends around the bolts and take note of the specific bolts the springs were connected to.
Replace the springs with new identical ones, tightening the ends around the proper bolts.
Gently pull out the silicone band or rubber gasket that lines the inside edge of the oven door. You can do this by using a flat-head screwdriver, pry one section loose, or grab a section with pliers and pull. Grab the loosened section and remove it.
Taking note of your make and model, replace it with an identical gasket.
You can always measure the new gasket to ensure it is an identical length as the original, using a utility knife to cut it down to size if needed. Push one end into the groove of the door, then continue pressing the rest of the gasket around the edge of the oven in this way until the edges come together around the door.
If the door doesn’t pull up from its hinges
If the door doesn’t pull up, look inside the oven for screws holding the hinges. Unscrew them.
Take your model number or your broken parts with you to the appliance supply store to make sure you buy the proper parts for your oven.
Replace those identical new ones and hook them back into the hinge holes in the oven. Push the door down to lock the hinges in place or replace the screws.
For this job you may need a screwdriver, replacement hinges, pliers, replacement springs, a utility knife, and a replacement gasket
6) The interior light in my oven will not turn on
If you’re in the dark about why your food is being left in the dark while it cooks in your oven consider these fixes.
Most ovens will cook just fine without a working light; however, it can make it a bit of a challenge. However, the easiest solution is also the most likely: cooker bulbs aren’t hard to come by. Make a note of your make and model and find a new, identical replacement. Find a reputable installation video to see if it works.
Cooker Lamp Assembly
If replacing the bulb seems not to have made a difference to your light, the next likely cause can be a faulty lamp assembly. This is the bulb holder and connections. To see if it is faulty:
Check if there is an electrical supply to the oven: does the clock display on the control panel?
If not, then select any fan function to see if that works.
The good news is replacing the lamp assembly is not a major inconvenience.
Ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before beginning any repair. Spraying a small amount of WD40 and using a paper towel to unscrew anti-clockwise can help loosen a bulb cover if you are having trouble.
Find the lamp and inspect the curly filament inside the bulb for a break. If nothing is found, and the bulb looks good, access the lamp assembly by removing the cooker’s rear panel.
Disconnect the wires from the holder and check with a multi-meter for ohm resistance across the lamp holder connections. If there is no resistance, a replacement will be needed.
If the bulb or holder needs replacement, then you can check your make and model first for the available replacements.
Once found, make use of our handy guide below on how to replace your faulty lamp assembly.
A third cause that can stop an oven light working is the terminal block. The signs that may indicate an issue with the terminal block include:
A clock that fails to not display
Areas of the cooker that aren’t working
If it is blocked, you will be able to inspect it at the back of the cooker where there may be a number of circuits connected by links from the main power connection.
Make sure power is off and disconnected or the gas switch is off. Then:
See if any link or connector is loose. This can result in heat and damage.
Charring or lose connections are a bad sign. If there is damage, you require a replacement.
Once you have the correct part for your appliance based on your make and model, see any number of reputable how-to guides to fix this yourself.
7) My oven will not self-clean
Using the clean cycle feature on your oven comes with an element of risk. Checking an oven that failed soon after or during a clean cycle is not unlike checking an oven at any other occasion. However, there are some frequently occurring failures that take place during a clean cycle. Let us look at a few of these failures so you will have a greater understanding of the action to take.
Door Latch Switch
I you try to cook using the oven after running a clean cycle the control panel displays Lock, Door Locked or the lights are flashing, check the door latch switch first.
When the door locks for a self-clean the latch makes a connection on a switch that lets the control module know the door is locked and it can begin. The same goes for automatically locking doors
Often during cleaning, the contacts in the switch will stick. If this occurs, the door will still be able to be unlocked (or unlocked automatically) but the control module assumes the door is locked. It will therefore not start a cooking cycle. This can prevent future self-clean efforts or deter you from using this feature in the future.
Almost every appliance will have a manual lock that can easily disconnect the door latch switch and the range will return to normal while you can wait for a new door switch to arrive.
Even with this switch disconnected the oven will continue to work as normal. However, another cleaning cycle will not be possible until the switch is replaced. If you disconnect this switch, make sure tape up the wires so they cannot short. Also, disconnect the power to the range before attempting to disconnect or reconnect any wires.
On automatic locking appliance, there will be two switches; one for telling the control module the door is locked and another for a fully unlocked door.
First, see if the door latch mechanism is engaging or pressing one of the switches. If not, replacement of the whole mechanism may be necessary. If the mechanism is pressing the switch, replacement of both switches is needed.
Here are some other self-cleaning cycle repair tips:
Follow these simple tips to get your oven’s self-cleaning cycle back to a functional state:
Check the oven controls
Follow the directions from the manual to ensure the controls are set to run the cleaning cycle. If you cannot find your user manual, you will be able to download by searching your appliance’s make and model.
Check the circuit breaker or fuse
Make sure the circuit breaker that is responsible for getting power to the stove is marked ON.
Check the oven door lock
As mentioned above, ensure the oven door lock is engaging shut as it should.
Common Oven & Hob Problems
A faulty oven or hob can lead to an expensive repair bill or worse still to the cost of a new replacement. However, in many cases the problem with your oven or hob is easily fixed if you know how. First we’re going to take a look at how an electric oven works and then go through the common problems that can arise, and hopefully give you solutions on how to fix any faults.
How an Electric Oven Works
To help diagnose problems and replace faulty components on your electric fan assisted oven it is first necessary to understand how it works. In the video above we used a built in fan assisted Indesit oven to explain each of the main important components and how they work together.
The oven is a single cavity oven which means as well as being a fan assisted oven it also includes the grill as well. Some ovens are twin cavity which simply means that they have a separate oven and grill.
Let’s take a look at all the main components of the oven and how together.
Oven Element, Thermostat, and Fan
First we’ll look at the oven Element, thermostat, and fan.
The main function of an oven is to heat up and cook our food. The heating part of the process is done by an oven element which is normally situated at the rear of the oven. Most ovens nowadays are what’s known as fan assisted. This means that at the same time the oven element is heating up there is also a fan which distributes the hot air around the cavity to ensure even cooking throughout the oven.
Temperature is regulated by the thermostat. To us this is simply a knob which we turn to our desired temperature. But behind the knob is the thermostat switch with a capillary (wire) running from the switch and down in to the cavity of the oven. The capillary is actually a tube with gas inside. As the gas heats up the pressure build up causes small bellows in the thermostat switch to move until they reach the predetermined temperature set by the user. The thermostat will turn the oven element on and off during the cooking cycle as the temperature gets to hot or too cool.
The fan should always be on when the thermostat knob is set at anything other than off. There are normally two fans in an oven; the fan that distributes the hot air to aid cooking, and a cooling fan.
Cooling Fan and Thermal Switch
Next we’ll look at the Cooling Fan and Cooling Fan TOC.
The cooling fan is designed to keep the area between the cavity and the outer casing cool. It is a cylindrical fan and is operated by a Thermal Switch automatically depending on the temperature. As the temperature rises it cause a bi metallic strip inside the TOC to turn the cooling fan on. As the temperature cools the bi metallic strip breaks the contact which turns the cooling fan off. When you finish cooking and turn the oven thermostat off the cooling fan motor should (depending on temperature) still be running and will run for 10 minutes or so until the oven has cooled down sufficiently.
Grill Element and Energy Regulator
As with the oven element the grill element is responsible for the heat needed to grill our food. The grill element heat settings are controlled via an energy regulator that sits behind a knob on the oven console. The energy regulator regulates the heat output by the amount of power sent to the grill element which is determined by the user.
On this oven the function switch is combined with the thermostat. This switch simply enables the user to select which part of the oven they want to use. So if I want to use the grill I need to select the grill on the function switch before it will work.
Door Glass, Door Seal, Door Hinges
Although the door area may not seem as important as the other components we’ve discussed any damage or wear to them will likely lead to poor cooking performance. There will normally be an inner and outer door glass. This is to ensure that the temperature of the outer door doesn’t get too hot. Obviously if there are any breaks or cracks to either door glass then they should be replaced without delay.
How to replace the door glass on an oven:
The door seal is normally fixed with clips in each corner and should be in good order and free from sagging. If the seal is worn or is sagging then heat will be allowed to escape and cooking performance will be affected. It will also have an effect on the amount of energy your oven is using to maintain the temperature set. Changing an oven door seal is a straightforward job.
How to replace the door seal on an oven:
Over time the spring within the door hinge can become sprained which will result in the door not closing properly. The only solution to this fault is to replace the oven door hinges. Fortunately replacement is straightforward and we have a video showing you exactly how to do it.
How to replace the door hinges on an oven:
Why Doesn’t My Oven Heat Up?
As the old adage goes; if you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. However, if your kitchen’s not actually generating any heat – specifically from the oven – then you’re in even more trouble.
Checking The Elements
The heating elements which heat up the oven can burn out and are the most likely cause of an oven not heating up; if they do, they doesn’t work or heat up at all. These are relatively easy components of the oven to replace – most are simply held in place with a couple of screws and have 2/3 wires going to it, and can be fitted easily without the need for specific technical knowledge or experience.
The heating element can usually be found at the back of any fan oven, behind the back plate. To check it, you will need to turn off the power before opening up the back of your oven. Removing the heating element is a case of very carefully detaching the wires before completely retrieving the heating element.
How to replace an oven element:
Although the thermostat can cause the oven not to heat up it is more likely to be a faulty element. The thermostat is a switch that regulates the temperature, if the thermostat has a malfunction it may not be able to turn the heat on.
How to replace an oven thermostat:
Cooking On Gas
Of course, not everyone has an electric oven – some people use good, ol’ fashioned gas. If you do, check your igniter, which is situated next to the burner.
It’s possible you could have a faulty gas safety valve, in which case you can check that too.
The burner contains a lot of small halls for the flame around the burner, and some them get clogged thereby preventing the burner from lighting properly. A good quick fix for this is to clean the holes out with a needle or some wire.
If you can smell gas, leave your home immediately and call the National Gas Emergency Number, 0800 111 999. Oh, and always remember any repairs to gas appliances MUST be carried out by a ‘Gas Safe’ registered technician.
Too Many Switches
Lots of ovens – particularly the more complicated, contemporary ones – are adorned with switches, knobs and an eye-popping panoply of buttons.
If things get a bit complicated and you’re getting flustered firing things, consult the manual no matter how confident you are – or you may end up creating more problems.
In most cases the oven needs to be in ‘manual mode’ otherwise it doesn’t work at all!
Out Of Power
One of the basics, but if there’s no electrical current surging to the oven, you’re going to be waiting quite some time until that cottage pie’s ready.
Check the circuit breaker and make sure it’s flipped to the ‘On’ position, as a sudden electric surge can cause it to overload and trip out. If you cannot make it click or lock back into the ‘On’ position, chances are there’s either a fault with the oven or the circuit breaker switch is faulty and will need to be replaced.
As a sanity check, make sure the oven’s plugged in, or hasn’t been pulled out of the socket slightly.
Why is My Oven Overheating & Cutting out?
An overheating oven is a common problem, and can result in you burning or overcooking your food (a serious issue for any food lover!). But don’t panic – most of the common causes of the problem are easy to fix.
Thermal Overload Switch
There is a real safety consideration if your oven is overheating and it should be repaired as soon as possible. Whilst there will be a thermal overload switch fitted inside your oven which will trip and turn off the power to the heating system, it shouldn’t be relied upon and is a warning sign that you have a problem. Your oven will likely work again once it has cooled down but you are advised not to use it until the root cause of the problem has been fixed.
Faulty Oven Thermostat
The most likely cause of an overheating oven is a faulty oven thermostat, which will result in an inaccurate temperature setting. Thermostat replacement is a straightforward DIY repair task.
See our ‘oven thermostat guide’ for more details on advice and fitting.
Faulty Oven Cooling Fan Motor
If the fan isn’t working at the correct speed, the oven may overheat – and this is likely to be due to a faulty oven cooling fan motor.
How to replace a faulty cooling fan motor:
Blocked Oven Vents
Blocked oven vents are another possible cause of an overheating oven. To fix the issue, make sure that any vents aren’t blocked.
Faulty Control Module
In some cases, a faulty control module may be the cause of the problem. To fix the issue, you’ll need to replace the control module.
Why My Oven is Is Smoking?
If you’re ever confronted with a smoking oven, use an extractor fan when dealing with it.
It might just need some elbow grease!
It may be the case that your oven gives off a lot of smoke when it’s empty, in which case it’s probable that there’s a build-up of burned food and/or grease. In these situations, it’s best to let the oven cool down. Once it has, clean it out and rinse it thoroughly. We recommend a Professional Oven Cleaner as it always gets fantastic reviews. Make sure it’s completely dry before you use it again.
However, if your oven’s already been cleaned and gives off anything more than a small amount of smoke, turn off the oven straight away and wait for the oven to cool down. It’s probable that the residue of a cleaning product has built up inside the oven. Once it’s cooled down, rinse the oven out thoroughly with water, and make sure it has dried out completely before you use it again.
How to clean your oven:
Is your oven new?
Brand new ovens also give off small amounts of smoke the first time they’re used.
Good general maintenance advice is to clean your oven after every time you cook in it, particularly if it’s food with a lot of fat that might spit inside the oven.
Self-cleaning ovens may cause small pieces of caked-on food to catch fire – but do not open the oven door or try to put the fire out if your oven is self-cleaning.
It’s also possible that a short in an electric oven will cause the components to smoke. In a situation like this, you’ll need to call in the assistance of an expert repairer.
If you’ve just replaced the oven element in your oven then it is normal for it to smoke the first time it’s used.
Why Doesn’t My Oven Turn On?
The general solution to this problem will change depending on what kind of oven you have. Gas ovens are more dangerous than electric ovens to fix yourself.
Gas oven doesn’t turn on
If your gas oven doesn’t turn on, you should seek the opinion of a registered ‘Gas Safe’ professional in the first instance. Problems with gas ovens can be dangerous for amateurs to fix, and improper fixes can lead to dangerous problems building up over time.
Electric oven doesn’t turn on
Before you do anything first of all check that your oven is set to manual. If it’s not then your oven will appear dead. Normally there is a symbol or icon that looks like a ‘high five’ hand and pressing this will re-set your oven to manual.
Next you need to ensure that electric is getting to the oven. If it is a plug in type then check that the socket is working by plugging in to it something that you no is working. If it’s ‘hard wired’ in then you will need to check that power is reaching the switch and that the switch is functioning correctly; you may need to employ the services of an electrician to carry this check out.
If electric is definitely reaching the oven then you should check that the terminal block where the wire connects to the oven hasn’t burnt out.
If all the above prove to be ok and it appears still that the oven is ‘dead’ then it could be an internal component at fault and is probably best to employ the services of a repair technician.
Why Does My Hob Keep Sparking?
Gas hobs can be very dangerous, and small mistakes can cause death or severe poisoning. If you are having issues with your gas hob or oven you should always make sure that a gas safe technician is called.
Problems are most likely to have originated with electric switches on the gas valves, individual sparkers, the sparker module, or excess moisture after using too much water to clean the hob.
You should not investigate the problem yourself. Call in a professional to sort out the problem quickly, cleanly and safely.
Why Does My Hob Ignition Keep Clicking?
Your hob ignition clicking shouldn’t be anything to worry about, as it means that your ignition is working too much if anything. That means that any gas around the hob will be ignited and burned off before it can build up.
There are many potential reasons your hob ignition is clicking, but the most common is that some food or water is causing an obstruction.
Clean the igniter, but be sure to leave the hob dry once done. Too much water will mean that the problem persists, and might have been the cause of the problem in the first place.
HOB MICRO SWITCH
If this doesn’t fix the problem, check that the micro switch on the hob isn’t stuck down. Remove the knob covering it to locate the micro switch. If it is stuck down, and cannot be unstuck very easily, you will need a replacement spark module.
If it’s not stuck down, the switch may have shorted. If this is the case, you will need a replacement spark module.
HOB CONTROL UNIT
Automatic ignition cookers, where the ignition kicks in automatically when you start the gas flowing, have one more option. It might still be the case that debris, water, or a faulty spark module are your problem, but you may also need a new control unit in some cases.
This is a much less common problem, though, so be sure to check thoroughly for the other potential issues first!
