Question about Dacor Preference SGM466SS Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Oven Striker Basically my lighters don't work. I turn the gas on on any of the burners (except one, perhaps), but it won't light. Yes, I have tried making sure the knob is turned to "light", but unless I use a match or lighter the gas just keeps flowing with no fire. How can I fix the lighters?

If I'm not mistaken, these dacor cooktops have an automatic re-ignition (meaning if the flame goes out, it will just relight it without you having to do it) If none of your burners will light, you probably have a bad spark ignition module. These are somewhat hard to change, as you have to take all the burners off and disconnect the spark wires and take the whole top of the cooktop off to get to the inner workings. Also, to get these burner bases off it takes a special tool by dacor, AND you usually have to replace all the burner seals once you take them apart.Your other, simpler option is to unplug the cooktop and plug a lamp or something in to the outlet the cooktop is using, just to make sure you have power. Just cause the breaker doesn't look like it's tripped, doesn't mean it isn't bad and the outlet is dead. Hope this helps!

Why want middle burner light automatically but will light with a lighter


That unit is suppose to have electronic quartz igniters. Apparently there's a problem but it doesn't automatically mean the igniter needs to be replaced. If you see a spark from the igniter then it's fine. If you see a spark but no flame then the ignition process is out of synchronization. In other words, the gas hasn't concentrated near the spark enough to ignite. This may be a matter of low gas pressure or the extra length the gas needs to flow to reach the center burner is impeding ignition. Simple fix is turn the knob just enough to start the gas for 2 seconds then continue the turn to click the igniter. or simply use a match. You may also see if there are any adjustments on the gas manifold that will enhance bringing more gas to the center burner quicker. Some unit have one click & that's it, others click the igniter continuously until you release turning the knob. Good luck. you'll figure it out.

How do you light gas manually when power is out?


Hi,
Turn your burner on to high, then use a lighter with the long spout on it to light the flame by moving the lighted flame to towrds the burner slowly.
Make sure to use the type of lighter that allows you to stay back so you do not get burnt.
If the burner does not light do not let it on for more than half a minute.

Gas range with stricker burners and oven burner


Most likely the oven will not work because the striker is not coming on. I am not very familiar with this stove but most thermador gas oven uses a electronic igniter. the switch controls both the igniter(striker) and safety solenoid so if neither the striker or solenoid is not powered up the switch may be the problem

hi,

it sounds like the oven safety valve is bad, it will reach a point when the pilot will make enough energy to keep itself lit, but not enough to open the gas valve to light. it will need to be replaced. if you are handy you can do this, but make sure you shut off the gas to the range first. you should be able to find a replacement online, if not check with a local LP gas company that sells parts to the public.

Oven Clicking Noise


Sounds like you've got the igniter button stuck IN. If so it will probably carry on clicking until the battery runs down.
The battery might be behind the bottom drawer. If you take the battery out and the clicking stops then the striker button is probably glued up with something. Just clean it.
