messageGas Hob Igniter
Posted by AlanT June 30, 01:30PM

I have a Baumatic Gas Hob which will not stop sparking. I think the igniter may need to be replaced on at least one ring and am looking for info on electricians / other who could carry this out.

It has probably got wet.
Turn it off for a few days and let it dry out 👍🏽

Like Steve say.. It has probably got wet.

I had this problem with an old hob.
When I cleaned it, some water sometimes got into one of the control pots..

I found removing the control knob and using a hair dryer to dry the water worked..
Or else wait for it to dry out.

I actually figured out that one of the knobs was sticking slightly in the down position - only took me 2 days to think of that... ;)
