Question about Baumatic 24 in. B40 Gas Cooktop

Symptom is as above. I have a Siemens two burner top by Schott Ceran. Both are intermittent, and fails most of the time. They will usually keep lit if I try about ten times, and if I turn it off again once it has stared working, it will light normally if I try again. If I let it cool for a minute it will start troubling again. The thermocouple next to the igniter is clean (cleaned it with a knife), so I guess they are OK, although they can get faulty, but saw another post of someone replacing the thermocouple with no effect.
Then I tried the advice above on pulling off the knobs. And now it works... And I put the knobs back on, and it fails again! And it is reproducable every time!?! Very strange, yet delightful insight. Dismantling the thing tomorrow.
