    Cooked last night, cooker ignited fine. Ths morning...no spark. Hubby has had a look, nothing obvious. Any ideas? Lights fine manually with good old flame

    Should say no spark, flipping IPad

    If you can hear it trying to ignite and you have an oven shelf near the bottom of the oven try pulling it forward slightly. Sometimes the spark earths to the shelf and wont ignite the gas:BigGrin:

    is it possible that you moved the igniter slightly when cleaning, spud has done this to ours a few times moving it back to the correct position has solved the problem every time, it's a bit of a fiddle and trial/error finding the correct place but easier than a return to the dealers

    If I switch the power off at the control panel on my van this also removes power from the cooker ignition.

    Some older cookers rely on a couple of dry cell (D cell) batteries for ignition rather than the hab battery.

    maybe the case and the batteries are spent.

    usually under the bottom of the cooker.

    just a thought !
