Hi Michelle

I am still waiting for an answer.

One additional piece of information - the hobs were in use at the time of the failure and they suddenly just died on us.

The gas and spark module both went out at the same time?
You can't light the burner manually with a BBQ lighter can you?
It is extremely rare that both of these parts go at the same time. Unless there is an electrical issue. Sometimes the power that gets supplied to the unit can go out. Or be damaged insome way that affects the way the machine operates. And since both of these parts that you say youAre having a problem with are electrical, I would start there.
So first please check the mains. Make sure the power is on and is at the right voltage. If it is then check the power coming into the unit. Usually at the terminal block in the back of the machine. Check that where the wires are coming from the supply from the house to the machine. Make sure the wires are connected properly and not damaged.
If there are damaged or show signs of arcing then that is your problem. And the wires and connection will need to be fixed. If the wires and connections are ok then we can heck some other areas of the machine.
But usually with this kind of complaint there is some kind of wiring or electrical issue.
If no wiring issue the replace the spark model and burner valves on themachine. If you get me the full model number of your machine I can look up the parts info for you.
If youhave any other questions please get back in touch with me here and include the full model number of themachine.
