Question about Thermador Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My thermador gas cooktop has suddenly started to show a lot of yellow flame rather than blue flame. Research leads me to believe that the gas and air mixture needs to be adjusted. Is this something I can do myself? If so, where is the air baffle adjustment located?

    The burners are described as being "sealed" and they are covered with a star shaped burner cover that distributes the flame. All of the holes on the covers are clean and open. Each of the four burners started burning yellow at the same time. Any thoughts?

Thermidor GG30 cooktop front large burner will not light, does not spark. Three other burners work fine. Need instructions how to disassemble and repair. I am handy but no experience with this item. ...


Here is the part to order.

Close the valve in the gas line connected to the Thermador oven. Unplug the cooktop's electrical cord from the wall outlet.
Remove the screws under the front edge of the Thermador cooktop below the cabinet to release the cooktop from the countertop.

Put on work gloves then raise the cooktop at an angle. Recruit a friend to hold up the appliance while you work on the igniter underneath. The igniter is a pronged strip of black metal in a housing wired with two plugs connected to powericon1.png sockets underneath the Thermador cooktop.

Disconnect the two wired plugs on the end of the igniter from the sockets.
Take out the two screws in the metal plate that hold the igniter in position under the Thermador cooktop. Pull the igniter out of the mounting bracket in the cooktop.
Hold the new igniter by the housing and insert the part into the mounting bracket. Secure it with the two screws.
Connecticon1.png the two wired plugs to the sockets. One plug is larger than the other, which makes it simple to connect them correctly.

Lower the Thermador cooktop into position on the countertop and reattach it with the screws through the underside of the front edge.
Plug inicon1.png the cooktop's power cord and open the valve in the gas line.

FLAME IS YELLOW INSTEAD BLUE for sunbeam gas range


Yellow usually means more air than gas mixing at the burner. The top of the stove lifts off. There are adjustment screws in front of every burner. Turn the burner on after first locating the screw. Turn the adjustment screw until desired flame is achieved. You want a flame with a yellow tip and the body of the flame blue. Please be very careful not to get burned. Hope this helps.

How do I increase the flame height on my thermador cooktop that had a PLP conversion kit installed?


Make sure the regulator was changed to the proper gas. You should be able to unscrew the cap and you will see a plastic piece stuck in the cap. Flipping it over changes the pressure on the spring for the appropriate gas. Otherwise the burner orifices could be drilled out 1 size larger.

You should have voiced your concerns long ago with the store you purchased it from. But if they did not convert it, you would have large, yellow flames.Proper burner flames will have no yellow in them. They should be only a blue flame.

Tighten down the nut on top the safety valve till it bottoms out. Then adjust it. The air shutter needs to be adjusted as well. You must do this while the oven is lit. The flame needs to creep no further than half way up the spreader. Ye must get the proper air to gas ratio and the only way to do it is to tinker away at it while the oven is lit.Crank down and flip machines are very simple to convert. NOTE: new gas safetys do not come factory set. They come tightened down (b Turning the orifice counter clockwise allows more gas , turning it clockwise allows less gas. Since the bi-metal safety is a slow opener that explains why you have a nive flame to start and then as time goes by the flap opens and allows for an overshoot of gas. tighten the valve clockwise to get the flame set as soon as you notive yellow. By the way I am sure a propane guy from your supplier would be willing to help you get it in tune if you feel a bit shakey about laying on the floor and adjusting the flames on an oven.

I cannot get a clean blue flame on any of my burners


You have to adjust the air flow to the burner. You are getting too much gas.
Verify the LP orifice changeout is correct.

ALL YOUR FLAMES SHOULD BE CLEAN BLUE FLAMES WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS OR FLAMES !!!! YELLOW FLAME = DIRT OR PAINT? WHITE = LACK OF AIR SOUNDS LIKE YOUR STOVE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH COMBUSTION AIR. INPROPER AIR ADJUSTMENTS OR LACK OF AIR WILL CAUSE A WHITE TIP ON THE FLAME ... THAT IS CARBON-MONIXIDE !!! A CLEAN BLUE FLAME EMITTS CARBON-DIOXIDE AND IS NORMAL. IF YOU USED AN AIR-GUN TO PAINT, CHANCES ARE YOUR BURNERS HAVE A SLIGHT COATING ON THEM AND HOPEFULLY WILL BURN OFF IN TIME. TRY OPENING ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS IN YOUR HOUSE ... AND TURN ALL BURNERS ON AND LET THEM BURN FOR AN HOUR. DO NOT LKEAVE SIGHT OF THE STOVE, BUT KEEP NEAR A OPEN WINDOW. NOTICE !!! MOST GAS COMPANIES WILL COME OUT AT NO CHARGE TO CHECK GAS, AND FOR CARBON-MONOXIDE.(C0) NOT (CO2).
