Have had a Thermador PCG3666E (36" 6 burner rangetop) for 10 months and during this period it has worked fine. Now 2 of the front burner igniters do not give off spark. I cleaned and still do not work.
Is there a procedure for cleaning igniters or have they gone bad.

Close the valve in the gas line connected to the Thermador oven. Unplug the cooktop's electrical cord from the wall outlet. Remove the screws under the front edge of the Thermador cooktop below the cabinet to release the cooktop from the countertop.
Put on work gloves then raise the cooktop at an angle. Recruit a friend to hold up the appliance while you work on the igniter underneath. The igniter is a pronged strip of black metal in a housing wired with two plugs connected to power sockets underneath the Thermador cooktop.
Disconnect the two wired plugs on the end of the igniter from the sockets. Take out the two screws in the metal plate that hold the igniter in position under the Thermador cooktop. Pull the igniter out of the mounting bracket in the cooktop. Hold the new igniter by the housing and insert the part into the mounting bracket. Secure it with the two screws. Connect the two wired plugs to the sockets. One plug is larger than the other, which makes it simple to connect them correctly.
Lower the Thermador cooktop into position on the countertop and reattach it with the screws through the underside of the front edge. Plug in the cooktop's power cord and open the valve in the gas line.
Do any of the burners click? If not, you may need a new spark module. If only one isn't clicking you may need a new ignition switch that is just behind the knob. I have also seen wires get pinched,stopping the flow of electricity. It may also be a computer board issue which is rare. Sooo you really need to call for service.
Hi. I have experience cooking in a burner like that it keeps on burning coz the ignition coil was press by your switch knob coz the spring was stack up try to release it so that it will not be ignited all the time when your cooking. This should be ignited at once. If it gives light already it should be released. Please reply if you have solved the problem so that I can give you more advices.
Either the igniters are at fault (which is usually the case when one or two are not working) or the entire oven ignition system needs to be replaced and can be done through
Viking themselves whether you want them to replace it or you yourself
replace it, you can get the part through them.
