One burner won't stay on. Obviously an issue with the little safety thing that has to warm up before you let go of the knob. Happened a year ago and I gave it a prod and a push. But this time nothing. Can you replace the little buggers?

Can you check the wire under it hasn't dropped off?

 

Thinking of the obvious first.

Yep, you can replace the temp sensor. but first, remove it and clean it, then make certain the wire contact is clean as well, and the wire has continuity ...

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

pinched from another web site..

 

the inner and outer parts of the thermocouple are made of 2 different metals and when heated this creates a very small dc voltage measured in millivolts this in turn energises the electro magnetic valve (normally called a junkers valve) in the gas tap 
failure of system is usually is due to 
1 tip not positioned in the hottest part of the flame (blue part)
2 loose conection at nut on to junkers valve
3 burnt out thermocouple
4 faulty junkers valve

Force 10's used to have that issue. Easy fix, take the knob off and stuff a bit of carboard inside the knob to act as a spacer. Something with age gets a bit bent out of shape inside and this is the easy fix. May not work for you BP but worth a shot.
