Morning all. Got a bit of a problem I can't seem to get my head round.

We are getting no gas to our cooker in our caravan. It worked fine last week, but it is not working now. I changed the gas bottle last week, but I am sure it all worked fine afterwards. Everything else is working fine on gas - fridge, heater etc. It is just the cooker. I have checked the shutoff valve - it is open and I have even checked that gas is getting past the shutoff valve by disconnecting it and opening the valve.

When you turn the knob on the hob or the oven, you have to hold it in to allow gas to flow, but there is nothing coming through at all. What am I missing here? It has to be something really dumb!

Beats a hasty redfaced retreat!

Yep. The glass lid is a nuisance. I struggled once for ages - the lid was raised but not quite wide enough. Could have kicked myself after trying for an hour to clear a non-existent air lock.
