SOURCE: Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.

mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.

2 burners wont ignite


Hello there:
A burner doesn't work The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite. The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician.

We have a thermador 5 burner gas range top and the pilot light seems to have gone out. The burners don't go on but we smell gas. How do we re-light it?


Most gas range tops no longer have pilot lights but use an electronic ignition (sparker) to light the burner. Normally when you turn the burner on you should here a snapping or sparking sound, at which point the burner should ignite. Here is a link to the user manual for 36" - 5 burner Thermador rangetop...maybe this will help: http://dl.owneriq.net/a/ac64ae7b-1ed3-44a3-9235-e4dbd8fe4628.pdf

By the way, in the short term you could always use a match to light the burner. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL THE YOU HAVE THE MATCH LIT AND OVER THE DESIRED BURNER BEFORE YOU TURN KNOB TO START THE BURNER!!!!

No spark


Replace your Invensys U-67204-8 0+4 Module: http://www.toolbox.invensyscontrols.com/appliance/linkedElements/ElectronicSparkIgnition_SparkReignition.pdfwith a Tytronics 4 Point Re-ignitor #RI 120E-4: http://www.tytronics.com.au/__files/f/2792/4 Point Re-Igniter.pdf which has replaced the older Invensys Module on BlueStar Ranges like the RNB304BV1 - 4 Burner Range (also used in some Viking Ranges): http://bluestar-store.mwrc.net/en/product.php?product_id=40478 Call Prizer-Painter 800-449-8691 for instructions if not sure how to do this. Also, may want to do some cleaning first overall on the Burners and the Igniters - BlueStar Part #741801: http://bluestar-store.mwrc.net/en/product.php?product_id=37702 or replace if broken: http://www.bluestarcooking.com/bluestar-service-videos.html#
