Gaggenau gas burner will not light but can be lit with a match and then does not detect flame and goes out: If there is a spark and the burner doesn't light but can be lit with a match and then goes out try again and see if flame comes from the tiny core burner, next to the spark electrode, in the center. If there is no flame in the center, then the central conduit is blocked and not sending gas, the tiny central core burner does not get hot and the flame detector is not activated so the detector cuts off the gas. Use a compressed and blow out the conduit; you will probably see a few droplets of water come out; that's enough cause this odd problem.

    if there is no spark, the link is appropriate. If there is a spark and it still does not light try to light with a match. If it lights but no flame comes from the tiny core burner then the central conduit is block, not sending gas, the tiny central cory burner does not get hot and the falme detector is not activated so the detector cuts off the gas.

Ingiter will either fail to start burner or won't quit clicking on the 1% of the times it does start up the burner


Hi look for adjustments to the lighter and also there should be a sensor tat sees the fire , this sesor allows the main gas to turn on, but only if it feels the heat , kind of like a thermocouple , if you think about about any type problem like this: what is it not doing ? then think what could cause this >/? if you go about any repair this way there is nothing you can't fix unless you need a part !

When I turn any burner on, the ignitors work fine but it takes a very long time for the burners to ignite. Problem is worse the longer the top has been turned off. Once gas gets to the ignitor, it lights...


It seems like one of your burners is clogged. You made need to use some oen cleaner and a small toothbrush to clean the burner. If the problem occurs with all the burners, then you have a blockage in the gas supply line. you willm have to take it apart at the stove and clear it out. Check the main gas connection and at the burner(s) to spot the debris clogging. Make sure to shut your gas valve off behind the stove. Good luck... hope this helps.

GE Monogram ZGU48N6D- None of the Ignitors "click"


We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.

If I'm not mistaken, these dacor cooktops have an automatic re-ignition (meaning if the flame goes out, it will just relight it without you having to do it) If none of your burners will light, you probably have a bad spark ignition module. These are somewhat hard to change, as you have to take all the burners off and disconnect the spark wires and take the whole top of the cooktop off to get to the inner workings. Also, to get these burner bases off it takes a special tool by dacor, AND you usually have to replace all the burner seals once you take them apart.Your other, simpler option is to unplug the cooktop and plug a lamp or something in to the outlet the cooktop is using, just to make sure you have power. Just cause the breaker doesn't look like it's tripped, doesn't mean it isn't bad and the outlet is dead. Hope this helps!
