Most likely it needs a new hot surface ignitor, which is normal wear and tear. Can cost you around $200-400, depending on where you live.

There is an easy way to relight a pilot light in an oven/broiler if you do not have long fireplace matches and you are scared to stick your arm in with a regular lighter: Light a long stick of incense, but do not blow out the flame. Open the broiler door. Turn the oven to "broil" and extend the lit incense stick in \to the back of the broiler space. Wave the incense stick slowly back and forth below the broiler coil towards the rear of the oven until you hear the pilot light ignite, then pull the incense stick out, blow out the flame and insert into an incense holder.

CTD365N / CTD365L Gas Cooktop 1 Answer ### DCS range igniter won't stop Hey all ... I just had a repairman fix my DCS cooktop that was doing the same thing ... ignitor problem. He replaced it and it's good as new. (Cleaning also did NOT work for me.) It cost me$216 for the repair. If you can find the part, it's pretty easy to replace. Just take off the front knobs (be careful as there is a 'ring' inside the neck of the knob) and unscrew the front. You will need a special screwdriver - looks like a star - but just snip the plastic straps holding the original ignitor in place and put the new one on the same way as the old one. You should be good as new. REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE BREAKER!!! I can't imagine it would take more than an hour (tops) 'cause it looked pretty easy.

### DCS Range Ignition problem

I agree with two of the reviews here. Every so often after a good cleaning, or most recently after some oil spilled over, I had a burner that wouldn't light. All of them clicked, but the one I wanted didn't light. So after reading the above posts, I unscrew the hex nut, removed the shimmer ring, and cleaned it, and mopped up a bunch of oil under where the ring sits. Put everything back together and lit it manually. After 30 secs of flame I shut it down and tried to light it automatically. It worked! Looks like, thanks to some folks here, that I saved myself an annoying phone call and possible repair bill!
