Pressure low because everyone's trying to cook & heat their homes because it's cold.

Try again about 10pm tonight.
Others ok?
air bubble?
could be dirt in the jets
or the top might not be on correctly
how do i clean the jets if i have a blockage ?

make sure the other ones are working fine, so you know its just one unit, if they are all suddenly low, theres something else wrong. if its just one:

lift up the loose bits that make the flame, (black top part, brass ring) maybe the brass circle bit is gunked up

if not, under where they sit is a single jet in the middle, gunk often creeps under there, clean that out.

Now turn off the gas at the main,

The jet needs a socket to unscrew and then the jet can be cleaned with a single bristle taken from a brush

do not do this unless you feel capable
