PC366BS/01 thermador loud clicking noise no gas

Model PC366BS/01 Frist, there was no gas coming from the two left burners. The other 4 burners were fine. Then, a few days after I first noticed this, the two left burners spontaneously started clicking and sparking very loudly. Much louder than the normal ignition click. I happened to be home, and ran into the kitchen. I tried turning one of the knobs for the left burners, and gas came out and the burner lit. But the out of control clicking and sparking was still happening. I unplugged the unit and the sparking stopped. Plugged it back in, and now everything is working perfectly. So first, no gas at left burners. Then, the weird loud clicking episode, when no one touched the stove. Then a power cycle and everthing is working. I am concerned that this is going to happen again. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Some Burners Will Not Ignite

probably a worn wire to the electrode or a cracked ignitor. you are faced with taking off the hobtop and looking - no easy solution. you should not do this unless you are confident and don't interupt the gas path

SOURCE: Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Ignition sparking on its own with GE mongram gas stove top.

the sparking is one of the switches under the knobs shorted you may be able to open the top and take a switch off 1 at a time and you can figure out what one is shorted.or you can just change all of them.
to stop this you may be able to just unplug the cooktop from under the top.if you unplug the cooktop you should be able to light the burners with a match.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Thermador PCS364GDUS griddle needs cleaning.


Wear gloves, put all items in a garbage bag. Put outside and spray a can of easy-off oven cleaner on all parts. Seal bag and let sit for 24 hrs. They should come out looking new after you rinse them off. After you wash them off, put them in a 300* preheated oven for about 30 min to ensure they are dry.

Clogged burner on gas cooktop


lowly is it the left burners that won't lite? I only ask as depending on the model some of the Thermador cook tops had simmer control burners. This is a 3 part system on the burners. 1 a simmer control, 2 electric solenoid, 3 potentiors. When you turn on the burner the potentior tells the simmer control to send power to the gas solenoid. At the same time the unit will spark. If your unit has extra low on the left 2 burners then you have this system. The usual problem in the potentior. Hope this helps.

Ingiter won't stop sparking.


You might have cracked the electrode if you were scrubbing next to it, otherwise you might try taking a little sandpaper and scuffing off any residue on the top of the igniter and seeing if that does the trick. Good Luck!
