Question about Dacor Preference SGM365SS Gas Cooktop

2 Answers

I have six burners. Two on the left operate and the middle rear operate without the clicking continuing. The fourth in the front middle operates OK also. However when the front or back right are turned on they continue clicking as well as the front middle. It is a 36 inch dual fuel range in the epicure series I cleaned the ignitor as suggested in the solutions, but this did not correct the problem.

    Is it possible that when only two of the burners are affected that a new controller board is the possible problem?

The flame sensors are not picking up the signal that the flame is present.

It sounds more like the thermocouple is not registering the flame.  The thermocouple is a small tube-like device that changes resistance based on the heat of the flame.  If the thermocouple doesn't "register" the heat, then the ignitor circuit doesn't know when to shut off (it doesn't know when the gas has actually been lit, the clicking sound is the ignitor continuing to try to light the burner).  I'd look into replacing either the thermocouple itself or (unfortunately) the controller board.  I say unfortunately because I had to get mine replaced on my Thermador 36" range that cost over $250 just for the part...!  Good luck!!

When lighting any burner...the igniter continues after lighting."click, click, click, click, click" and so fourth. Thank you for your time.


My parts list doesn't tell me if that is an auto relight unit or not. But since you say it happens on any burner I'll leave out stuck ignitor switch for now.
Check the house ground wire to the unit and check that the burner caps are installed properly. The auto units read a ground when they ignite so if the burner caps are on wrong or dirty they can cause this.

Switch for burner 4 is not working properly - could have a bad contact resulting in just one spark and nothing more.

Viking stove ignitor


the continues to click problem, for e it was only when my smaller burner was lit. theo others were ok. When I took the burner apart it was very dirty. I cleaned it up (a wire brush in my drill press) and it works fine now. I think it was just bad electrical conduction.

Some Burners Will Not Ignite


probably a worn wire to the electrode or a cracked ignitor. you are faced with taking off the hobtop and looking - no easy solution. you should not do this unless you are confident and don't interupt the gas path

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
