Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

I have a gas odour below the Miele Gas Hob.

I have had the gas fitter return to test for leaks. He has soap and water tested the fittings on the supply line for leaks which proved to be OK. He shut off the supply valve at the gas meter and checked for any usage will the appliances switched off. the meter didn't register any consumption.Is there a possibility that unburnt gas could be accumulating within the appliance housing and then dissipating after the control knobs are shut off? Is there any recorded leakage problems between the control knob and the burners.

SOURCE: Ge Monogram Gas Cooktop - won't boil water - burners seem like they are starved for gas

Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: gas igniters on all five burners keep sparking (JennAir CCG556B)

Try cleaning around all the ignitors at each burner. Look for build up of cleansing product and/or food. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning and removal of a buildup to solve this. Worth trying before replacing a bunch of parts!

SOURCE: viking gas cooktop vgsu161-6b sparks continuously.

The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.

Flame leaking under lower ring. Common?


no it is a problem with the hob

consider this

as it is a rental property it is the responsibility of the land lord to get a gas fitter in to fix / replace the problem

If you do not ask him to fix it , if there is a problem and the thing explodes, catches fire or gases some one to death, there is every possibility that he will try to blame you for not reporting it

if he refuses to fix it or tries to fix it himself then I would advise that you seek alternative rental accommodation as the problem is for an accredited gas fitter and not a landlord.

Hob igniter not working


Handbooks are available from Miele online. If that doesn't give an answer, you may need an appliance service person. I don't recommend you poke around yourself unless competent with gas and electrics.

Miele Gas hob KM326G 2 burners won't stop clicking


Hello Leighvz,
The rings around the burners should be cleaned periodically. Each one has a series of holes to let the gas come out and have to be set back perfectly or else you will continually have this problem. You can clean with regular dish soap an water and a sponge or rag.
Also, If you put a pot or pan on the burner and it is too large it will cut off oxygen to the burner causing your clicking. The clicking only occurs when the oxygen supply is not enough. Hope this helps

All 6 top burners have leaking compression flex connector fittings to jet burners. Need serviceman in San Francisco.


Youcan try tightening them up yourself. Need two adjustable wrenches, one to hold the connector to the burner and the other to tighten the compression fitting. After that have a solution of water and soap and spray all around your fittings to see if its still leaking, you will see bubbles, If its still leaking you will have to turn yourgas supply valve off and disconnect flex gas lines replace with new ones. After replacing do the same thing spray with the solution to see if they leak.If you dontfeel comfortable doing this dont.

PROBLEM WITH HOTPLATES SWICTHING OFF


Sometimes this happens if the pan bottom is not completly flat or is highly polished. Darker, flat pans work best. It sounds as if the safety is cutting off the burner.
