Question about Cooktops
I tried changing the poteniometer, one solenoid appeared damaged so I then switched the wires and connected to the other solenoid to see if it would solve the problem, but it did not. The front burner which is the xtra-lo simmer burner, sparks but will not ignite. Right front burner does not spark but will light when rear burners are ignited. The only burner that works normally is the right rear.

take the knob off, and take a very small flat screw driver, and inside the valve, turn it to the left, go slow, and you'll see that it goes down, there ya go

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Cleaning Thermador Cooktop?
To clean the stainless around the star burners try applying Easy-Off oven cleaner around the stars with a Q-tip (spray the cleaner onto the stainless surface first because it's very hard to control the spray output). The cleaner will make your stainless sparkle and the Q-tips allow you to get close enough while controlling the application. Scrub gently with the Q-tip and the stains will disappear within minutes. Wash thoroughly with a wet cloth. I've used this on my older model Thermador stainless cooktop for 5 years.
