Question about KitchenAid 30 in. KGCS105GSS Gas Cooktop
Well If you done cleaning then may be the switch is defective, you need to replace them -
1. First of all you can Disconnect Defective Switch -Disconnect the defective switch from the power source. This is usually a plug or 2 spade type connectors. It is also possible to find ring type connectors which will have to be unscrewed. If necessary, remove the gas feed line to the valve and the gas line to the burner. Most stoves will allow you to remove the switch without removing the valve also. However, some older stoves may require the removal of both. Remove the switch from the valve and knob assembly. This is usually accomplished by removing either a lock nut on the knob/switch spindle or 2 small screws securing the switch to the valve. Discard the old switch assembly.
2. Secondly you need to Install New Switch - Mount the new switch to the knob assembly and re-secure using the hardware supplied. If no hardware came with the switch, reuse the old hardware. Reconnect supply and feed lines for gas if disconnecting was required. Reconnect power to the switch. Remove all tools from under stove top. Reconnect power. Turn knob to ignite to ensure proper operation of switch and igniter. Once proper operation is ensured, turn the gas supply back on.Close stove lid and push stove back into the wall.

Most likely this burner was the busiest among all the burners. One reason could be due to some residue, dirt and other material especially oil - based materials were stuck in the burners holes. Best solution is to unplug the unit and shut off the gas line completely for safety. You can use compressed air or vacuum to blow off the material that has resided in the burner. After that you can use a small amount of lacquer thinner to clean the valves and switches of the burner to get rid of the oil - based materials. Blow it off with compressed air or suction by vacuum. No need for part replacement. Hope this helps.. =)
