Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

I have a DSC CT-365 cooktop that won't light the center burner. Spark is fine. no holes clogged in the burner unit. It appears that there is a small orifice off of the main center hole. I assume this would feed gas to the underside of the burner for lighting. The orifice appears to be gunked up and I'm trying to find out the best way to disassemble the unit for cleaning this piece.

Viking stove burners blow out and relight if you tap gas valve. Hot surface igniters glowing but burner still loses flame and then make gushing noise. Is it the valve or the worn igniters?


Hi,

Which model do you have? Sound s light your unit re-ignites if flame goes out, if so, I would clean the burner. This means with a old toothbrush remove everything baked or burnt on. Assure your small orifice with in the burner is clean and you can see the port (hole in the center). Most of the time I have found clogged burners, or the burner cap (selected models) were installed incorrectly to cause this issue. Give that a shot and get back to me if you have more to add or just more questions.

Thanks

I get spark on all 4 burners but one will not light. It will light with a BBQ lighter. Spark + gas = no flame, was up?


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you have a defective gas valve, or a clog of grease in the gas piping...try taking a needle and poke the little gas holes to clean in the area of the spark unit

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response, thanks and good luck

DCS 305 cootktop: one burner will not stop clicking + the simmer flame is not on consistently around the burner.


Hello- What is probably happening is that the simmer orifice is clogged. If this gets clogged-up and not enough gas comes out to the burner it will continue to click. This is usually pretty easy to remedy. Take off the burner cap and you will see two holes, one in the center for the main burner and a smaller one that is on the perimeter of the burner. Look down that small hole and you should see a bronze orifice, it is pretty small, about 1/8" in diameter on the outside, looks like a nut. Most likely you will see grease or charred bits on the top of it (you can use one of the other burners for a reference if you are having trouble seeing it clearly) In the center of the orifice is a tiny hole, this is the part that is likely clogged. Now, you'll need to find something really skinny, like thin sewing needle and poke it into the orifice opening. Sometimes it is necessary to hold onto the needle with needle-nosed pliers in order to get it far enough in. Just be gentle with it and if what you are using seems too large in diameter then it probably is, you don't want to dent or cause any damage to the orifice opening. Once you get it cleaned out it should work ok. Let me know if you have any questions. Best regards.

2 burners wont ignite


Hello there:
A burner doesn't work The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite. The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician.

2. Make sure unit is pluged in.
3 make sure all burner and burner caps are aligned.

If you hear a spark and you small gas it should light.

Make sure the burner heads are not clogged.

If this top has pilot lights make sure the pilots are lit

2 of 5 burners do not start


The spark gap needs to have flow of gas across it for ignition to occur. The gas outlet holes at the point where the igniter sparks may be blocked, clean and inspect these for any blockages. Also check that the igniter spike is in the correct place. Careful evaluation of the position of the igniter in reference to the gas ring on the other rings may help you here. Good luck

Do you hear gas? If so, take a needle and put it through each one of the small holes where the gas comes out.... Also look for a little "white-dust" where the sparker makes the spark. (located probaly at back of burner). If there is a white dust build-up scrape it off with something (needle) and give her another go...
