Dacor Gas Cooktop- spiderweb blocking gas flow

The flame is a slow burning, wavering flame. A friend mentioned it was likely to be a spider web blocking the gas flow. I'm a little nervous about sticking something down the tube. Also I don't know how far down it could be.

SOURCE: Can't remove Dacor gas cooktop knobs-afraid too pull harder

The Dacor knobs have a history of breaking easily. For that reason I recommend that you clean them in place using cotton swabs, tooth brush, etc. WHatever cleaning agent you use, put it on and let it sit for 5 minutes to loosen up any grime.

They do pull off but they often break and they are pricey to replace.

Please rate my answer.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cooktop igniters keep firing, even after igniting

when you cleaned the unit you may have gotten water in side the igniter, dry it out w/ a hair dryer. Once dry should work .

New cooktop ! long flame yellow tips black deposits on pans

This is probably the result of inefficient burning of gas resulting in sooty deposits being left on the base of saucepans etc. It may be that the gas jets are blocked with spilt material and need cleaning. Try removing the gas hub with the gas jet holes in and sliding a paperclip sized rod into each hole to dislodge any material. Blow in the holes afterwards to force any loose material out. If this fails you may need a gas fitter to adjust the gas mixture regulators.

Igniters won't stop Dacor Preference SGM466 Gas Cooktop. Tried cleaning and want to remove the burners. What is the correct way to do so?

Problem is the insulation on the spark wires is dried and cracked. I bet you can hear the sparking coming from inside the unit, rather than where you see the spark, correct? The excess voltage is grounding inside, rather than thru the flame. I believe you pull the burners off and tap those brass rings with a screwdriver/hammer (or buy the correct tool). Then you can lift the entire top off.

Miele gas cooktop flame shuts off after lighting. If I keep the button down longer to allow more gas to flow to the burner it will stay on.

I had similar problem.Solved by Miele tech by placing rice grain sized wad of paper towel inside knob so it sits slightly higher on the valve shaft.

you can adjust the flames as follows pull a knob and look in the end of the brass peice you will see a small screw first you have to find a screw driver that will fit then with a pair of pliers hold the outer peice with the burner on and turn the screw one way rasies other lowers ideal adj is to turn buner all the way up then fast down if flame goes out to low keep working like that till flame is low but doesnt go out

If I'm not mistaken, these dacor cooktops have an automatic re-ignition (meaning if the flame goes out, it will just relight it without you having to do it) If none of your burners will light, you probably have a bad spark ignition module. These are somewhat hard to change, as you have to take all the burners off and disconnect the spark wires and take the whole top of the cooktop off to get to the inner workings. Also, to get these burner bases off it takes a special tool by dacor, AND you usually have to replace all the burner seals once you take them apart.Your other, simpler option is to unplug the cooktop and plug a lamp or something in to the outlet the cooktop is using, just to make sure you have power. Just cause the breaker doesn't look like it's tripped, doesn't mean it isn't bad and the outlet is dead. Hope this helps!
