Pull off the knob and then see if you can push the shaft in. If you can, then the knob is hitting something, preventing you from being able to push the knob in. Adjust the knob until you can push it in. If you can't push the shaft in with the knob off, then the control valve is broken and you will have to replace it.

    Search your local internet or yellow pages to find a Miele dealer in your area. You should have a qualified service person come and replace the valve, because I believe on that model you may have to remove the glass top, plus it is a gas valve, so a gas fitter should change it. You can also visit their website and request a service call or information.

Ignatior keeps sparking and stop why


i presume the sparking is actuated by when you push down on the knob. there is a switch under there. remove the knob by pulling it and use some small drop of cooking oil on the shaft to free it up. pres and pull till it works freely. this should allow the spring in side to push the knob up easily and turn of the sparking.

A gas ring does not remain lit after lighting on one of the burners on my Borsch brushed steel gas hob


Seems like one of the thermocouples has failed or it may just be dirty. There should be 2 "prongs" sticking up toward the burner. 1 is for the ignition and causes the spark to jump to the burner and light it. The other is a thermocouple which senses the heat from the flame and operates a magnetic device on the gascock to keep the gas flowing. If the thermocouple is faulty, damaged, dirty, it may not sense the heat and therefore, the flame will keep going out. Make sure the end of it is clean and the burner is positioned properly on its base. The thermocouple is usually a steel rod sticking up. This can be easily cleaned with a bit of steel wool or scourer. Do NOT scrape or scour the ignition prong as this is made from porcelain and can break very easily. It is usually white in colour, with a little metal cap or stud on the end. sometimes , the knob wears and you cant push it down far enough to lock the magnet when the flame is on. Pull the knob off and try stuffing a little bit of paper down the hole in the knob which goes onto the gascock shaft.. This will allow you to push the shaft down further and thus ensure the magnet is locking onto the gascock. If you are unsure, try a knob from one of the other burners that you are not having trouble with and see if that works, if it does, then you know its the knob, Cheers, Steve

When I push down and turn the knob to "on", the knob pops back up causing the burner to turn off. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thank You


You might need to hold it down for a few seconds if the cook top has automatic flame detection. A bi metal strip (or some other form of thermostat) near the burner will need to heat up before the burner can lock on.

My 2 year old sons played "drummer boy" on the knobs of the Viving Designer Series cooktop and now they will not turn. 2 of the 4 popped back and work but the other 2 did not. Tried turning them but no...


they must be bent....look around the knob make sure you have an equal amount of space betwween knob and stove...if not, try to carefully bend it until the knob straightens up....

The jenair made a popping sound, wasn't even turned on. Then found it didn't work at all. Flipped the breaker, and it would immediately flip back, the Jenair would also make the same popping sound.... Do...


I had the same problem. Mine was caused by liquid seeping into the infinite switch (the switch that gets rotated by the knob to set burner temperature). This caused one of the live wires to short to ground within the switch. Bad Design IMHO. Replacing the switch fixed the problem (you can get replacement parts at Searspartsdirect.com - search using the cooktop model number).
You first need to remove the unit from its installation. Start by disconnecting the exhaust fan from the ductwork. Then push the cooktop up.
To get at the switch you need to remove the top by taking off only the top row of screws all around the unit and also in the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is)

How do you get the black top off. I have to put in a new front burner. Thanks.

Turn off the circuit breaker to the cooktop. Verify by making sure the burners/fan do not come on. Disconnect the exhaust fan (underneath the cooktop) from the ductwork by removing the tape that joins it. While you are underneath the cooktop, open the junction box. Label the four wires that are joined so that you will be able to connect them later. Then disconnect the four wires. Remove the metal sheating that connects to the junction box (there is a nut on the inside of the junction box that you loosen. Pull out all the supply wires (from the mains) from the junction box. Then push the cooktop up and out and lay it flat on a table with the flat side down.
Take off only the top row of screws all around the unit. Rotate the unit so that you can get to the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is). Remove the two center screws. Then pull the black top off.

The spark on burner will not stop clicking after the flame is on


When you push the knob does it stay down? This problem is usually one of twwo things. Either the spring underneath is not strong enough or the shaft is dry. Sometimes a spray of WD40 can help. Pull off the knob and spray the shaft. Sorry I am partially guessing because I have no idea which top you are using. Hope this helps.

Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.


mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.
