Thermador gas cooktop explosion

Our Thermador gas cooktop, 5 burner, about 10 years old, exploded when I was boiling water for tea, There was a loud pop like a gun firing and all the knobs flew off and scattered around the kitchen. The burner was still lit. There was an odd burning type of smell. but we cou;dn't really detect any gas smell. This happened twice. Has this ever happened before?

    Our Thermador gas oven is not working. When I turn the oven on, all I smell is gas. The broil works just fine, but the convection and bake functions are not working. The stove is 7 years old

I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

MY wife boiled over her tea pot of water and now the pilots on all four burners continue to click as if you turn on the gas to light the stove.


The water has shorted out at least one of the igniter switches. Disconnect power to the unit and let it dry out for several hours and it should be just fine.

The flame are too low, cannot keep a large pot of water rolling boil. was much better when it was new, any adjustment cannot be made ?


check to see if the burners are free of deposits from carbon and grease build up. The tiny holes in the burners get clogged with grease and carbon.

One burner on gas cooktop fires up but goes tick, tick tick.


There may well be water in the burner. It will evaporate in a day or two. Then it will work fine again.

The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...
