Yes keep playing with it and BOOOOM! Call in a professional. This is the law with gas appliances.

Frozen locknut holding burner to cooktop


These frozen nuts can be a real pain, try spraying something like w d 40 or similar over a couple of days before trying to force it, best to get a ring spanner or socket that fits nice and tight.
Good luck. Ray

Frozen locknut on burner Thermador SGSX365ZS


First I would try heating it up until it is red and then twist it off. If that is not an option for you then I would get a rotary tool (hobby size) with a cutoff wheel and carefully cut into it from the side about halfway through. That will get it.

How to remove the top panel of the cooktop?


To remove the top so that you can replace the electrodes, you just need to pull all the burner grates off and knobs. Then remove all the burner caps and rings off so that all you're left with is the cooktop and the burner bases. There are screws going into each burner base. Remove all the screws and the burner bases will pull up and off and then you can pull the top of the cooktop up and off.

0ne burner won't ignite, there is no spark from the igniter on the burner. How do you diassemble a burner unit?


Hello- These burners can be difficult to disassemble. I would first try an brush the ignitor, electrode, with a wire brush if it is blackened just be careful not to crack the ceramic. Also, make sure that the burner cap is on correctly, it will not spark if the burner cap is not positioned correctly. In order to remove the burner you have to remove the Ventrui tube, this is the bronze nut with the tube attached that is in the center of the burner. You will need a 20MM socket. If you can get the venturi out the burner will pull off. I believe on this one you have to take off both burners in order to remove that section of the cooktop. Be very careful no to force the nut because if it starts to turn but is not actually loosening then you are turning the orifice holder underneath and can crimp or crack the gas supply tube to that burner. The problem with these is that they often do not come out and have to be drilled off and then replaced along with the orifice holder that it screws into under the cooktop. Now, if the problem is occurring on one of the burners that has the extra low simmer (the ones that you can set to come on and off at an interval) then you will probably need a Potentiometer kit which replaces the switches and the spark module. Unfortunately it will probably be best to have a Tech out who is familiar with Thermadors and their particular issues. Sorry

One of my large burner not working


If you have the glass cooktop slide-in model, the problem is most likely the burner "ribbon' under the glass top for the small burner has come loose. I fixed mine with only a phillips-head screwdriver, needle-nosed pliers, and a 1/4" wrench (1/4" socket on the end of a nutdriver works better). Here are the steps I took to fix it: 1) Slide the oven out from the counter so the sides of the oven are clear of the counter top. 2) Remove the phillips head screws-1 on each side of the oven near the top/rear. These will be the only phillips-head screws you will need to remove. 3) Open the oven door and remove the 4 hex-head screws at the top/front/inside the oven- there are 2 on each side which follow the opening of the door. Then close the door. 4) Pull off the burner knobs by gripping them and pulling straight up. Don't worry, you will not break them but you will need to give them a good tug. 5) Remove the burner retaining nuts that are under the knobs-you may need a wrench to loosen them but only tighten them by hand when reinstalling. 6) Pull the face of the control panel away from the oven slowly until you see a ribbon connector on the right side and then disconnect the ribbon and remove the face plate from the oven. 7) Remove the 4 hex-head screws from the face plate bracket (the plastic part that was holding the face plate) and pull the bracket toward the front of the oven until it flops over and rests on the oven door handle. 8) remove the 2 black screws holding down the glass top-one on each side of the oven-the screw heads face the front of the oven. 9) Disconnect the two wiring harnesses attached to the cook top. Don't worry, they only fit one way so you don't need to label them. 10) Lift the cook top until the wiring harnesses are clear of the holes and place it upside down on a flat surrface. 11) Remove the two retaining bracket screws and brackets from each side of the non-working burner. 12) Slowly lift the burner and flip it upwards until you see the ribbon coils. It should not be necessary to disconnect any wires. 13) Look at the ribbon coils very carefully to see if any of them are disconnected from their main connection points. If so, feed the ribbon back inside the pinch point (you may need a small screwdriver to open the pinch point first) and then use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to pinch the ribbon to hold it in place. I had to use a voltage meter set in the OHM position to find where mine were disconnected. Once you pinch the ribbon end back into place, put everything back together in reverse order. If your burner still does not work, your burner knob switch may be bad. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Electric stove top


Follow the wire, It should go to a junction box within 4 feet. It may be behind a cabinet. Remove the box cover and unscrew the wire nuts. It usually uses armored wire and this is clamped to the box. Release the clamp . Turn off breaker or remove the 2 fuses first.
