Question about Dacor Preference SGM365SS Gas Cooktop
In addition to polishing up the end of the igniter as mentioned above, remove the burner cap cover and and the round burner cap. As noted above, electrical contact or grounding is an important element in the spark igniter function. Any poor contact surface can cause the igniters to continue to spark after a burner lites. If everything seems in order, polish the underside of the aluminum burner cap and the top side of the aluminum burner base (where they come in contact with each other). This is part of the grounding circuit for the igniters. I used an "SOS" pad. In our case, these parts had tarnished with age. My wife was very happy when I fixed this one.

Tke the top of of the burner and make sure the nut below it holding the whole thing together is tight. Occasionally these cooktops will have that nut come loose, letting the flame leak a little air in or it will discolor the cooktop around the burner. If you have this discoloration, you probably need to take the whole thing apart and replace all the o rings, as the discoloration is usally from the flame leaking out under the cooktop. Also, take some fine sandpaper and polish up the end of the little igniter to make sure it can sense the flame properly. Last of all, how old is this model? A couple years (not exactly sure which models, call dacor) ago there were a few of these cooktops that hadclicking issues that just couldnt be fixed, and if your is the affected model/serial they may give you a new one.Good Luck!
