I've been having this problem for the past 2.5 years and no one was able to pin point the problem.
9/10 times on warm day,evening time, my cooktop in the kitchen has no gas supply, we have to wait till dark, take a normal hot shower, then the cooktop will start working again.
we have the builder come in and inspect the issue, but he said nothing can be done unless it happens in front of him and they wouldn't come in after 5pm.
any idea? i have been having dinner after shower almost everyday for the past 2.5years.

Can you give us some more info.
LPG or natural gas?
What type of hot water service? gas? solar with electric or gas boost, gas instantaneous?
any pics of where your meter and regulator are? and how they are connected to your hot water and house?
My immediate thought was that there is moisture collecting in the gas line post the hot water service which is evaporated or sucked back into the hot water burner thus freeing the line but the oven burners are not strong enough or the gas run to the burners is convoluted enough that the gas cannot push through the water.
I would get a gas appliance repairer/gas fitter to come out and measure the gas pressure at your stove and to check the way the lines and regulators have been installed.

i will check the feed to cooktop tonight, but i still find it weird having to take a hot shower everytime it stops working, and the use of hot water in large quantity seems to fix the cooktop issue thereafter.
