Wolf griddle won't heat up

When I turn the griddle on, the red light lights up, but it does not click or heat. All the burners ignite just fine. The electric oven is fine.

SOURCE: knob not working and some burners not heating

The switch under that knob is bad.  It's called an infinite switch.  As far as the elements go, first thing to check is for proper voltage (220) to the cooktop.  Let me know what you find.

hi,

it sounds like the oven safety valve is bad, it will reach a point when the pilot will make enough energy to keep itself lit, but not enough to open the gas valve to light. it will need to be replaced. if you are handy you can do this, but make sure you shut off the gas to the range first. you should be able to find a replacement online, if not check with a local LP gas company that sells parts to the public.

SOURCE: Dacor gas range igniter clicking

I did have the same problem after the house keeping people done with cleaning. They used window/surface cleaner. First I asked them not to clean the ignitor with any cleaner. Here is what I did to solve the problem
I took scotch scour pad (one that you use for washing dishes), In dry state I polished ignitor switch. It is abrading the residuals and deposits on the top and polishing it. Don't use any thing more abrasive than that. MAGIC - I don't have any more problem.

Left burner not lighting


Could be the igniter isn't sparking, sometimes they get cracked and run to earth you will still hear it click. Remove the top plate and check the wiring and igniters, turn the lights off and you will see if it's sparking all over the place.

Ingiter will either fail to start burner or won't quit clicking on the 1% of the times it does start up the burner


Hi look for adjustments to the lighter and also there should be a sensor tat sees the fire , this sesor allows the main gas to turn on, but only if it feels the heat , kind of like a thermocouple , if you think about about any type problem like this: what is it not doing ? then think what could cause this >/? if you go about any repair this way there is nothing you can't fix unless you need a part !

I have a Wolf gourmet 30" stove. it's about 10


Interesting, I'm looking for a solution to a similar issue. Our new (7 month old) 30'' Wolf Range has this issue. When both front burners are light, the back burner's electronic starter begins to click, but only when you put a pan on the front left burner. I believe the iron/steel in the pan is causing a magnetic field thats starting the rear burner to go off.. just don't know.. will report back after the repair person comes.

Igniter will not turn off. Makes a clicking sound


Hi, normally what causes the igniter to keep clicking is spilling water or something down into the knob area. The water is causing a short circuit in the switch which is mounted on each burner valve shaft. If unplugging the range for several days to allow drying doesn't fix the problem, then one of the switches will need to be replaced.

I was given a 36" magic chef gas cooktop with griddle. It was very greasy and dirty, all the burners were sticky and slow to get turned on, but 2 of them refuse to turn on, parts lists say the griddle...


If it's two burners on the same side that won't light, it is probably the igniter for that side. If so, remove the grates, griddle, and griddle sub pan, and then lift up the main "pan (if it's like mine, it's hinged at the back and lifts up). Now, if each burner on that side has a tube going to the middle between the burners, the igniter is in that middle section. Mine is a small plug-in ceramic and metal part (see photo). If yours looks like this, contact me at jazzskier@verizon.net, I have a spare.

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.

Wolf range cooktop


I just installed a Wolf gas cooktop and had the same problem in that all 4 burners would light just fine but the electronic igniters would not stop clicking on all four. What I found was that the electrical outlet that my gas cooktop was plugged into had the polarity reversed. I tested the outlet with a polarity testing module (you can get one at Home Depot and it checks polarity, grounding, GFI and is handy to have around, small and inexpensive). I plugged it in and the lights told me that the polarity was reversed. I reversed the wires in the outlet (exchanged the white and black wires) put the cover back on, plugged in the cook top and now it works like a champ! no more constant clicking. By the way, we had a cooktop before this one with electronic ignition and never had a problem, apparently it didn't care about the polarity.
