Question about Cooktops

Burner goes out when cabinet door is opened!

I have two pop in Gaggenau gas burner cook tops that replaced my gas Thermador unit. The problem is: when on low to simmer the flame sucks out when I open the lower cabinet. It even does it when one of the two doors is wide open and I pull the other side open! I've paid for a technician who contacted Gaggenau with no solution. I think that for the price of these things there should be more interest in solving some of the CUSTOMERS problems.

I haven't worked on one of these models hands on but on most you can pull the burner **** and look inside you should see a tiny ***** in there hold the outer piece with a pair of pliers and take a tiny screwdriver and after turning the burner on turn the ***** to adjust the flame just enough so the suction doesn't blow the flame out on the lowest setting

My 5-burner 36" gaggenau has stopped working. I


Hello.
What the problem is a part in the cooktop that opens to let gas flow to the knobs as soon as they are turned on is bad and no gas coming to surface unit burners. This a safety feature that the German goverment(where Gaggenau is made) requires that part to prevent a gas leak when cooktop is off.

We have a thermador 5 burner gas range top and the pilot light seems to have gone out. The burners don't go on but we smell gas. How do we re-light it?


Most gas range tops no longer have pilot lights but use an electronic ignition (sparker) to light the burner. Normally when you turn the burner on you should here a snapping or sparking sound, at which point the burner should ignite. Here is a link to the user manual for 36" - 5 burner Thermador rangetop...maybe this will help: http://dl.owneriq.net/a/ac64ae7b-1ed3-44a3-9235-e4dbd8fe4628.pdf

By the way, in the short term you could always use a match to light the burner. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL THE YOU HAVE THE MATCH LIT AND OVER THE DESIRED BURNER BEFORE YOU TURN KNOB TO START THE BURNER!!!!

Cook top burner knobs all 4 not able to turn


Hello,

Just to be clear, non of the 4 burner controls/knobs will turn ? You are familiar with this unit are you ?

Typically you must push down and turn to activate them.

Let me know if that is not the solution.

Good Luck :)

Clogged burner on gas cooktop


lowly is it the left burners that won't lite? I only ask as depending on the model some of the Thermador cook tops had simmer control burners. This is a 3 part system on the burners. 1 a simmer control, 2 electric solenoid, 3 potentiors. When you turn on the burner the potentior tells the simmer control to send power to the gas solenoid. At the same time the unit will spark. If your unit has extra low on the left 2 burners then you have this system. The usual problem in the potentior. Hope this helps.

Re-ignition when cabinet below doors open/close


Seal all holes on the underside of cooktop. This is called the burner box. Seal all openings with aluminum tape. This should stop the back draft effect.
