Rangemaster ignition

This answer was rated:

Hi, My Rangemaster cooker's ignition button has stopped working - I press it and there is no 'clicking' sound and nothing lights (the oven similarly does not light automatically when I turn the gas on). I have looked through the User Guide and checked that the power supply is Ok, the clock is set, there is no Auto setting or child lock active. Any thoughts? Gini
Thank you for using JustAnswer!
If you have any questions after reading my answer,be sure to let me know.

When the poaer is restored as you did the clock will always come back when you reset the time.

Sounds like you need a new igniter. The igniter makes the clicking noise when turned on.
You can get replacements here at this link or call them with your complete cooker's model number.

I take it from your answer that the igniter does not have a battery that can be replaced, as on most standard cookers. If this is the case and a completely new igniter is needed, does this have to be installed by a Rangemaster fitter or is it a DIY job?
Most local appliance techs can test your igniter and replace the defective part. This is not an unsual repair.
