Trace the 2 thermocouples back to the Spade connectors. Pull the connector off and back on a couple of times. The Rings should work fine.

Right guys, problem sorted!! Checked the pin by the working burner, adjusted the other two accordingly with a clever device called index finger and bingo, I'm back in business!!
Thank you not only for your help, but also for making me feel like a technical achiever 😁😁

Well done and no doubt saved yourself a big repair bill in the process.

Lessons learned;

1. Asking on here is foc

2. There is some good advice on here if the correct question is posed, if you ignore Penquin.

3. Cleaning the hob is a dangerous occupation and should only be very rarely tackled.

4. If some else can be persuaded to clean it, then it's their fault.

5. When in doubt, refer to the last clause of 2.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

In terms of fault our house works on the premise, the last person to touch it broke it. 😆

Narrrr, I always get "It was alright when I used it last".

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life“s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
