Will not light


Have you removed the burners covers and top to see if the PILOT LIGHTS may have blown out? Hold a stick match or fireplace match (long stick) down in the area of the circular burner after turning on some gas. The burner should light and the pilot light should stay on as well. You local gas company provides service for this type of problem. Call them and have a gas company representative make a home call (free service) in most areas.

No matter which burner I try to turn on, the same one tries to light - I thought the gas was turned off, but the fact that just the one burner tries to turn on makes me nervous. thanks


Hello- On modern gas cooktops and ranges when you turn on one burner ALL the burners will click, spark, until that burner is lit. I would ask if the other burners are lighting ok or do you have to use a match? Do you smell gas when all the burners are OFF? Feel free to reply and if you could provide the Model number of the unit that would be helpful. Best regards.

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!!!!

Cooktop burner problem


Your plumber should know that the pipe service your cooker must be of a suitable size. Normal half inch pipe is only good for a couple of small burners. Most installations require one inch! There is a simple formulae for working out the flow rate of the gas. Your gas installer will know it.
