    No spark coming from the italquartz spark generator so bought a new one, fitted and reconnected it as I found it, still won't work it's sparking but the current cannot get to the burners.
    Hunted everywhere online but can't find a diagram showing how it should be connected.
    Sent photos to the Italquarz guy in Italy and he says each burner should be connected individually to the spark generator, but there are no visible spade connectors so logically it can't be that neither were there cables to connect it!
    Can any of you bright sparks provide a link to a schematic or cast some light please, I have emailed Dometic Smev but how long will that take I wonder

    Looks like you're missing the bit that goes in the hole next to each of your gas rings. Should be something which looks like a blunt metal needle with a cable which plugs into the circuit board.

    What BwB said, the little holes to the left of the burners should have the "spark plugs" fitted in them. Have the ignitors ever worked ? The thin cables going from the control valves to the burners are the thermocouples which shut the gas off if the flame blows out.

    as above you are missing the spark electrodes and the leads which join them to the ignigter the leads are generic and can be got in a pack of three from any parts center the electrodes will be specific to that hob although youll find they probably will fit a lot of other stuff try getting a part number

    Well thanks guys, yes i'm missing the electrodes, of course I thought the thermocouples were it lol!
    Obviously the first owner of my Hymer b528 removed them, they are around €14 each, having now wasted €42 on a new spark generator spose i'm compelled to get them now

    They may never have been fitted from new

    BBQ gas lighter would be a lot cheaper, we have a Smev cooker and it doesn't have a built in ignitor.
