Cooker hob ignition jammed on
My 10 year old white westinghouse cooker hob is half gas half electric. (50cm by 59cm; brown enamel, black controls).
Yesterday the gas ignition started firing every second and I can't stop it. I've taken the button cover off and cleaned it but no change. Tried clicking away frequently but no good either. Tried turning power off at wall and off again but no good either. It is firing on each of the two gas heads, so I guess it is somewhere between the ignition button and the workings on the hob.
