    It may take a while to bleed through, sometimes we have had them take a minute or so if they have run dry.

    You could have a bit of dirt from the bottom, but doubt it - probably just coming through the pipes slowly!

    Let it run, but don't get too silly or you will build up some excess gas and have a pop. Try lighting the cooker to help it along from the bottle.

    There is just a possibility that you have pressed the control knob too hard while trying to light the flame. If it has worn a little it may not be actually releasing the thermo-couple.

    Try removing the knob and putting a very tiny piece of tissue paper down inside the knob so that it sits a fraction further out.

    You did turn the gas bottle on?

    As above really, the fridge has a small gas jet so if it was right out and your pipes are full of air it will take quite a while to get through. I assume if you have Secumotion you have pressed the buttons.

    another thing to check is if the light has lit, but the ignitor keeps clicking (depnds on fridge) this can be a pcb fault and is common fault on dometic (electrolux) rm models
