Question about Thermador Cooktops

Open Question

My ECV-36 Themador cooktop two burners (right side) no longer work (can't regulate heat) and the cast iron is detiorating on the remaining two functioning plates. The vent itself still works but turns itself on and off intermittently and I can't adjust the speeed. I cannot afford a new one. I can buy a used EC-36 for $150. I don't know anything about installing or repairing. Does someone have an idea if it would be worth going down this road at all? My sister tells me to forget about the vent and just put the used EC-36 in it's place but I'd have to leave the vent there to cover the cutout. I may be able to afford a venting unit soon but this might be a stopgap.

SOURCE: Inop burner on new jenn-air JEC9530 elec flat cooktop

I'm having the same problem with my jec9530. The dual burner just quit working one day. I called jennair and they sent me a replacement "custom control" for free. 6 months later it quit again. I am now considering attempting to put an infinite switch (dual), part #PS786568 in its place. It is not electronic, and it looks like it is used for the jec9536 middle back dual burner. It is only $35, even if it doesn't work like the electronic one I don't care. My wife usually only uses both burners at the same time anyway.

SOURCE: downdraft vent on jenn air cooktop

How do you get the inside area of the vent clean from the grease and oils where the filter is?? I have a rectangular box style downdraft that the vent goes into the floor, I pulled the filter, but the box is to slender to get an arm into to scrub the grease....... does the bottom come off, or is it a sealed unit? How do you get all the brease from the bottom if you cannot reach it?

Epoxy would not work. If it is a very small chip and is NOT STRUCTURAL or in the heated are you could TRY the adhesive used for rear view mirror to glass attachment.

SOURCE: Stained gas range burner grates

Hey y'all. I have the same lame GE profile gas cooktop with the gray grates and burner covers. I know this is the expensive way to go, but I use Easy-Off "self-cleaning oven" oven cleaning spray. For about $5, you get 3 cleanings. It is a pain to do, but I have better things to do than scrub these grates all the time. I don't know why, but the baked on crud just drives me crazy. I tried everything to clean them completely. I even tried to scrub the darn things with a kitchen pumice stone(sold at walmart)but it is impossible to get the curvy areas clean. Now the paint has started to wear off on the burner covers.

I do not use the oven cleaner on the cooktop itself. I use soft-scrub with baking soda, then cover the cooktop with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cut out holes for the burners. This keeps most of the spills contained, and helps with cleanup.

I visited to the GE parts web page, and they only sell gray grates and covers. I am going to buy black BBQ grill paint(spray can)from Home Depot and try it on the burner covers first. They are the least expensive to replace if it fails, and if it works, I will paint the grates with this high temperature paint. I will keep you posted on the results.

Regards,

Laura D.

Flame flares up sporadically while cooking


Hi,

Due this test, turn on all burners on high, as you turn them on, does the problem burner change in volume or size of flame? If all burners are on and you only have issues with that single burner you need to replace that burner valve only. If you have issues with all burners when the all are on, replace the regulator.

I hope this helps and leads you in the right direction.

GE Profile mod. PP975bM3BB all lights work Burner will not heat


You have lost half of the circuit in the breaker, the lights work on one side of it but the burners need both sides of a 220 volt circuit. I would have the breaker tested first, and if it is good, look for a fuse, relay, breaker in the back of the stove. Hope this helps.

I have a Fisher & Paykel CE901 36" electric


Sorry, I don't have a solution, but a similar problem. My CE901 is 6 years old. One of the regulators broke after one year. The repair (under warranty) caused an electric fire a couple of weeks later. After much complaining, I got a replacement cooktop from F&P. Now, 5 years later, one regulator stopped working, no longer turns on the element. (I guess that's better than no longer turning it off.) You are not alone. Seems like F&P is incapable of producing a simple regulator that works reliably.
