Hotpoint gas range... rear burner piezoelectric has failed.
I was heating a meal on the front burner and had just put another pan on the rear burner; I held the rear burner knob fully counterclockwise in anticipation of ignition. What happened instead was that the gas from the rear burner drifted to the flame on the front one and exploded, startling me and causing me to upset the pan's contents. The underside of my wrist was very much irritated; all red and sore for quite a while afterwards.
