I had the same problem. Putting together many of the posts here, I discovered that the ignitor shuts off when heated by the simmer flame. So, I took a manual lighter and held it to the ignitor and the ignitor stopped. Took it away and it started again.

I could see that the simmer flame wasn't working on that burner, so I dug into finding out why. Took apart the burner and found that there was no gas coming out of the separate tube feeding gas to the simmer flame. The jet was clean, so I removed the tube and found that it was completely clogged with something that was like sticky grease or rubber cement.

I cleaned out the tube with goof off and a rubber-coated wire, then put it all back together. Works perfectly now.

Hope this helps.

Thermador over two left burners will not provide gas when knobs are turned. Also the oven will not light and the igniters on all burners will not spark. The electric is good to the appliance oven fan


You have multiple problems! First the single igniter that fires in all of the burners is either broken or disconnected electrically. Second, your gas lines or nozels at some of the burners are clogged. Check for cloggs by using a match as you light ONE BURNER AT A TIME...If they all light you only have the electronic igniter to troubleshoot...Have a repairman check it out for you if you don't feel confident with gas!

How do you light the oven? We turn the dial and


I take it the range is electric ignition because you say the top burners have a clicking(igniter) noise. If the top burners are electric ignition then the oven is also. The oven probably uses a hot surface igniter and that is why you do not hear any clicking. Turn the oven on and open the broiler compartment. You should see a bright glow from the hot surface igniter. If you do not see any glow there may be a grounding issue or the igniter could be bad. If you do see a glow but the burner does not come on in a few minutes then give the gas valve a tap with a wrench and see if the burner comes on. Shut it off and then back on several times. If the burner continues to light after this you may have fixed the problem. If it does not come on gas valve could be sticking or igniter is weak.

Thermador rdss30rs xlo burners don't light and right side burners don't light either. can light right side with lighter. while burners are on igniter spark continously.


IF THE BURNERS DO NOT IGNITE
• Are the burner caps properly aligned and seated in the burner bases?
• Are the burner ports clogged?
• Is a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker tripped?
• Is the manual shut-off valve closed, preventing the flow of gas?

Electric igniters dont shut off


Remember to turn the control knob past the "LITE" setting once the burner fires.
If that is not the issue you have one or more defective spark switches.
Each valve has its own switch wired in series with the others.

Gas burners/electronic ignition


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Electric start gas range


You either have a short in your electronic ignition or the ignition board is defective. Check the wiring to the ignition board for shorts. also check and make sure you ignitors are well grounded.

Gas kitchen range


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame--either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Most new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners. If, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.
