Question about Gaggenau 23 in. KG 260 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Gaggenau clicking My mother has a 15-year old Gaggenau gas cooktop, and spilled a glass of water on it this morning. Apparently it is now making a clicking noise (like the one when the burners are turned on prior to ignition) and won't stop, regardless of whether the burners are on or not. Does anyone know what is happening, and what to do to fix it? Thanks.

Re: Gaggenau clicking

Sounds like the spill got into one of the burner switches. This is not a big problem. Once it drys out it should return to normal. However if it keeps on clicking it could mean that one of the switches shorted out and will need to be replaced. The switches are located under the burner control knobs on the valve. Hope this helps.

My 5-burner 36" gaggenau has stopped working. I

What the problem is a part in the cooktop that opens to let gas flow to the knobs as soon as they are turned on is bad and no gas coming to surface unit burners. This a safety feature that the German goverment(where Gaggenau is made) requires that part to prevent a gas leak when cooktop is off.

One burner on gas cooktop fires up but goes tick, tick tick.

There may well be water in the burner. It will evaporate in a day or two. Then it will work fine again.

Flame too low

Most probably dirty jets. If water was spuilled, there is a possibility of rust forming on some parts. Low flames are usually due to inadequate gas supply, due to dirty jets and burners. Often rust forms on the top burners in the little holes, causing slight blockage - clean the holes with a needle properly and check. Oshie
