Question about Gaggenau 23 in. KG 260 Gas Cooktop

Burner head covers

I have a gaggenau KG 260 AU gas cooker and all four burner head covers have lost part of the enamelling and look pretty awful. I am dissappointed that a quality brand like Gaggenau has delivered this sort of result. I have been quoted a ridiculous amount by Gaggenau to but spare part replacements. Can anyone help? I have tried to find someone who can re-enamel but in Perth I have drawn a blank. Can you recoat with something else over the top - powder coating for example? Thanks

POWDER-COATING IS THE BEST BUT PRICEY AS-WELL. GO TO THE AUTO STORE AND TRY USING HI-GLOSS HEAT RESISTANT ENGINE PAINT. THEY HAVE BLACK AND SEVERAL OTHER COLORS. MAKE SURE TO READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTUCTIONS ON THE SPRAY-CAN CAREFULLY.

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


Hello.
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.

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.

Cook top burner knobs all 4 not able to turn


Hello,

Just to be clear, non of the 4 burner controls/knobs will turn ? You are familiar with this unit are you ?

Typically you must push down and turn to activate them.

Let me know if that is not the solution.

Good Luck :)

Ignition problems


It sounds like the round burner orifices are dirty. Remove the round orifices and clean in warm soapy water, using a plastic scrubber or toothbrush to remove and dirt and residue around the sides of the burner. Do the same on the little electrode that protrudes at some position around the burner orifice seat.

The system works by the spark ignition module knowing a gas knob is open, and sensing for a flame by ionization within the exhaust gases of the flame. If things are dirty, then the module cannot read the ionization and shuts down the burner, and will also cause the spark to continue.

Also make sure all the burner orifices are properly seated in their holder. If not, the same thing will happen.

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.
