The Dacor knobs have a history of breaking easily. For that reason I recommend that you clean them in place using cotton swabs, tooth brush, etc. WHatever cleaning agent you use, put it on and let it sit for 5 minutes to loosen up any grime.

They do pull off but they often break and they are pricey to replace.

Please rate my answer.

How to remove the top panel of the cooktop?


To remove the top so that you can replace the electrodes, you just need to pull all the burner grates off and knobs. Then remove all the burner caps and rings off so that all you're left with is the cooktop and the burner bases. There are screws going into each burner base. Remove all the screws and the burner bases will pull up and off and then you can pull the top of the cooktop up and off.

Igniters won't stop Dacor Preference SGM466 Gas Cooktop. Tried cleaning and want to remove the burners. What is the correct way to do so?


Problem is the insulation on the spark wires is dried and cracked. I bet you can hear the sparking coming from inside the unit, rather than where you see the spark, correct? The excess voltage is grounding inside, rather than thru the flame. I believe you pull the burners off and tap those brass rings with a screwdriver/hammer (or buy the correct tool). Then you can lift the entire top off.

My Dacor PGM365 knobs keep breaking off and I can't find a place to get replacements. do you know of a source?


http://www.reliableparts.com/ - DACOR refuses to fix the fundamental quality issues with the knobs. I've replaced a dozen in the past few years. I will never buy Dacor again because of the customer support refusing to acknowledge the issue.

Want to adjust the knob to make the flame smaller than @ current setting??


pull of the knob
put a smill flashlight down the selector shaft
you should see a small adjustment screw
probably a tiny flat head
very small turns
start from the lowest setting if you start from the highest you could loose your low flame below the grid
always adjust fromt the lower settings

some of these units are factory set and cannot be adjusted by the consumer,,,,unless you want to install new adjustable gas valvews

ON DACOR AS WELL AS THERMADOR YOU HAVE TO TAKE ALL THE BURNER CAPS OFF AND INTHE CENTER OF EACH BURNER CELL YOU WILL SEE A RELEASE NUT THEIR ARE 3 TO 4 DIFFERENT TYPES BUT THE MOST COMMON REQUIRES 13/16 SOCKET OR A 3N1 PUTTY KNIFE TO UNSCREW THEM. BE VERY VERY CAREFUL IF THE NUTS DO NOT COME LOOSE FREELY DO NOT FORCE THEM!!! USE SOME LIQUID WRENCH AND LET IT SOAK FOR A WHILE THEN ATTEPMT AGAIN. OTHER WISE YOU WILL MANGLE YOUR GAS TUBE AND ORFICECES AND HAVE 7OR 8 PARTS TO ORDER INSTEAD OF ONE

Remove the brass ring nuts and the screw from each of the burners and pull off the knobs, then lift up the glass cooktop; no need to remove the three screws around the perimeter or even take out the box.

If I'm not mistaken, these dacor cooktops have an automatic re-ignition (meaning if the flame goes out, it will just relight it without you having to do it) If none of your burners will light, you probably have a bad spark ignition module. These are somewhat hard to change, as you have to take all the burners off and disconnect the spark wires and take the whole top of the cooktop off to get to the inner workings. Also, to get these burner bases off it takes a special tool by dacor, AND you usually have to replace all the burner seals once you take them apart.Your other, simpler option is to unplug the cooktop and plug a lamp or something in to the outlet the cooktop is using, just to make sure you have power. Just cause the breaker doesn't look like it's tripped, doesn't mean it isn't bad and the outlet is dead. Hope this helps!
