    Hello.All of the gas igniters on my Bosch hob continue to spark after one ring is alight. Have you any ideas how I can stop this. Thanks.

    if it is a push button ignitor it is possibly jamming, remove the cap and see if you can lub it

    Hello. The igniter sparks when the knob is turned to turn on the gas rather than pushing a button.
