Question about Miele 36 in. KM342 Gas Cooktop
One of our " wok" burners on a gas miele cooktop will ignite but wont stop clicking. this problem developed after months of no problems
We have an older Thermador Gas Cooktop type range. It was working fine until the cleaning crew came in, then all the burner igniters were clicking when turning on a single burner. I solved the problem by cleaning off the igniters. I first of course unplugged the power. Then I took a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. I then went ahead and scraped and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. I then vacuumed up the mess. My burners all worked great after this. Hope this helps!

Usually due to the ignition unit being faulty. being miele, the part will be pricey. another solution is to take out the ignition unit and take it into a local electrical repair outfit and see if it can be matched up with one from a different make. to check if this is the problem, interchange two electrode leads on the ignition unit and see if fault changers to another burner. you sometimes find that there is a spare ignition outlet on the ignition unit and this can be used as an alternative
