Silly question, but I will ask anyway;
You are, of course, holding the knob in for a number of seconds after it lights aren't you ?
I know it takes a few seconds for the thermocouple to warm up, I have to say I have never looked for it, but surely, it has to be where the heat will get to it ? So OUGHT to be visible, but I don't know where it is for each burner.
My thoughts are that "energetic" cleaning may have moved them a touch, not a lot, but enough to move it out of line.
Like Terry, I would NOT advocate playing around in a DIY manner with gas, the potential consequences are horrendous and I am very much safety orientated (belt, braces AND a piece of thick rope to hold up trousers - just in case).
I believe that even "normal" gas fitters are not permitted to work on MH supplies, the GasSafe register requires an extra LPG module, I think.
But, lifting the burner as for cleaning, may show where the problem lies by comparing all three., can't do any harm (says he with fingers, arms, legs, toes AND eyes crossed).
Warning; no responsibility accepted for any ensuing carnage if my advice is, like a lot of what I post, a total load of manure from male cattle. 💩
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
