Question about Ovens
I had a similar problem when my new Leisure cooker was installed last December. The burners would light when I held the knobs in but when I let go the flame would go out. The engineer took off each of the burner knobs and stuck a small wad of aluminium foil between the inside of the knob and the contact on the front of the cooker - he said it's a design fault and the gap is just a bit too large for contact to be made reliably. This fixed the problem and I've had no trouble since.

Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.
1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.
2.Push the ignition switch once.
3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.
4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.
5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.
