Question about Miele 23 in. KM360G Gas Cooktop
The burner ignites every time, but does not stay on, no matter how long held. This after about 15 months of trouble-free use. I cleaned and dried everything very carefully...
The Thermocoupler is faulty or has a bad connection - once the burner is lit, it heats the thermocoupler which then send a small signal to the valve to stay on - at that time you release the knob and the valve stays on ( supplies gas). If you give me a model number, i can get you a part number and price.

Mpservices - Thank you for the correct diagnosis. Well done!
I had a similar "burner will not stay lit" problem, unil I read mpservices' solution/comment. I realized that of the two pins at the burner base the one in the ceramic insulator is the igniter lead, but the other is the Thermocoupler probe! Closer examination showed my TMC to be cacked with residue (it was the coffe maker burner). An emery cloth cleaning restored proper operation.
Thank you again MPSERVICES!

Did you check the hose? maybe it has a leakage or pinched..
