Question about Thermador SGS36GS Gas Cooktop
The knobs on this unit push down before they can be turned to start the gas and burner. One of the knobs is frozen, i.e. it cannot be pushed down. It looks somewhat corroded at the base of the knob where it enters the little metal box below. Any ideas?

Do you hear gas? If so, take a needle and put it through each one of the small holes where the gas comes out.... Also look for a little "white-dust" where the sparker makes the spark. (located probaly at back of burner). If there is a white dust build-up scrape it off with something (needle) and give her another go...

SOURCE: Clogged burner on gas cooktop
lowly is it the left burners that won't lite? I only ask as depending on the model some of the Thermador cook tops had simmer control burners. This is a 3 part system on the burners. 1 a simmer control, 2 electric solenoid, 3 potentiors. When you turn on the burner the potentior tells the simmer control to send power to the gas solenoid. At the same time the unit will spark. If your unit has extra low on the left 2 burners then you have this system. The usual problem in the potentior. Hope this helps.

sounds like you have a bad switch. maybe on the large burner.. some of those switches can be replaced without the whole harness.

I would say that pop was one of you igniters. either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop. I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use. Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.
