Re: Gaggenau gas rings

The heat has caused it to be stiff. Just apply steady pressure and it will lift off. Gaggenau is real good about making sure that if a part is screwed down that you can find the screw.

Westinghouse gas hob four burner only one igniting the other three only light with a match gas coming through but no spark

Clean the wires going to the ignitor of each burner, clean the burners as well. Chances are you have too much oil and dirt on them that is why your burners are not igniting.

My smeg cooker is brand new! after cleaning it - one of the rings will not ignite properly, it clicks so gas is coming through but no flame! any sugestions?

Brand new means you have a warranty, get the service agent to check.
I have found that you can easily place the wrong burner cap on the incorrect burner ring(the smaller burner caps).
Could also be dirt or water in burner ring or the burner jet(use needle to clear jet).
Are sparks coming from all ignitors? You might have damaged the spark plug.

I have a 5 burner Dacor Cooktop (SGM365) with which I am having trouble with the right rear burner not sparking. There is gas flow and the other burners are lighting just fine. I've taken the burner apart...

In the middle of each burner, there is a small brass ring that screws in the burner. If you unscrew all five and pull the knobs, the top should come off. From there you can access the electronics. Because all the burners ignite at the same time, I would suspect either a disconnected or shorted wire on your right burner or some corrosion has occurred at that burner preventing it from grounding properly.

Miele KM 320 G gas cooktop ignitor

I had a similar problem and discovered that the control knob had fried itself, most likely due to liquid penetration down the shaft of the control knob and into the control knob electronics. Inside is a printed circuit board with resistor, diode and a rheostat. The surface of the board was charred beyond repair.
To trouble shoot the problem, open the cook top and hook the burner in question to one of the known good control knobs. If it ignites, then it is the control knob electronics. If it doesn’t, then there is something wrong with the igniter.
Note: The 2-zone Wok Burner had a different control knob that the other burners.
To open the cook top, do NOT loosen any of the Phillips screws on the sides. Here are the instructions from the user manual:
Shut off gas supply, disconnect the manifold pipe, disconnect the electrical power. Remove pan supports, burner heads and burner rings. Remove control knobs.
In the event that the hob is built in, undo the bracket clamps underneath the work surface. Lift the hob on to the work surface. Unscrew the venturis on the high-speed and super high-speed burners using a 20 mm wrench. Lift and remove the burner rings and burner base plates. Disconnect the wires from the ignition plugs. Keep the wire from dropping into the undertray by inserting it in one of the slots in the burner supports.
Remove the three screws securing the dual ring wok burner. Remove the wok burner base plate. Lift the ceramic tray from the hob.
Note: Each regulator shaft is equipped with a black ring. This ring may cling to the rubber seal in the ceramic tray. Check and remove the rings from the rubber seals.

Cannot ignite central gas ring on smeg 5-ring kitchen hob

I had a similar problem on a different gas range but your problem seems the same as mine was.
I examined the underside of the burner and saw a little 'flash' left from the casting process and I filed it off. This made the problem worse; it wouldn't light at all anymore.
I tried the opposite, blocking off the burner channel from the gas feed pipe to the spark gap; problem solved. It hasn't had a hiccough since.
I can only imagine that the flow of gas toward the spark gap was so strong, the gas was blowing itself out.
Not knowing exactly how the underside of your burner looks or how the gas is partially diverted to the spark gap but I drilled a small hole in the casting, inserted a length of copper wire (the gauge used in house wiring), then 'tuned' the flow by clipping part of the wire off and trying it. It might have taken all of 15 minutes to correct the annoying problem.

Gas Hob constant ignition clicking

Had the same problem. All five burners were continuously igniting, after my wife had given the stove a clean. Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on, the constant igniting had stopped. Thank you all. I love the internet :-)
