Question about Thermador PGR364 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

11-yr-old PRSE364GLS. One igniter is loose, out of position. As a result it does not ignite the burner. Also, gas to that one burner does not seem to be flowing. It seems like igniter just needs tightening, but I have no clue how to get inside to do that. Help.

SOURCE: One of the gas burners does not open.

The valve is either clogged or defective.  Best bet is to get a new valve.  Servicing old ones is a poor bet. If you are unsure how to install it, get a service person.  Gas can be dangerous if the job is done wrong.

SOURCE: top burners igniter not working

It sounds to me like the spark modual has gone bad. There is a part that is usually behind the control pad and display for the range and oven. It usually looks like a rectangular black box with wires plugged into it. Thats the spark modual. With any luck it will say spark modual on it. Buy the replacement and then plug the wires in the new one just like they were in the old one. You may want to take a photo or write down where each wire goes before you remove the old part. I would also search online for a break down diagram for your appliance so you know for sure how to get to the spark modual. It is a pretty common replacement part so it shouldnt be too expensive. Sorry I couldnt be more specific.

SOURCE: One of the extra low burners will not ignite. All other do.

Try looking at the gas pipe. It could be blocked with dirt build up

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

I am smelling propane at the cooking surface when I turn the burner knob to the ignite position. I have been unable to determine the source of the leak. We've had the grill for a couple of years and have...


When the knob is in the ignite position, the gas should be coming out of the burners at a rate sufficient enough to light. It's normal to smell it before the igniter (either electric or push-button) ignites the gas.
If you recently moved the grill with the internal parts still inside it, it's quite possible the burner tubes have become loose in the holders. They are quite easy to remove because they are a commonly replaced component. Remove the grates and flavorizer bars according to your manual, and you should be able to reach in and check the position and snugness of the burner tubes.
Make sure you close the propane valve and disconnect the tank before doing this. Also, don't smoke when working on your grill. :)

GE stove JGSP28 igniter has been clicking non-stop for the last 2weeks. Blow drying the burners has slowed down the clicking to every 5sec. Front two burners seem to be clicking at the same time while...


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter.
A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you make need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Amana stove top burners click, and gas comes out, but won't ignite. It's a self cleaning ARG7200, about 11 or 12 years old. Oh, and can I lift this top? I'm used to doing that with old pilot-light...


A weak erratic spark from one or more electrode usually indicates a bad spark module. No spark from one of the electrodes while the others work properly usually indicates a bad electrode. Inspect the porcelain of the electrode for cracks, chips or burn marks. If there are any, the electrode should be replaced. If one of the burner knobs is turned to the light position and nothing happens, but all the others function correctly, the spark ignition switch for that one burner is likely bad. The switch can be taken out of the system and checked with an ohmmeter. It should close for continuity at the light position only.

Ignite prob


You've got two different things going on.  First - the type of igniter used on your model does wear.  I have had mine for over 10 years and have gone through 3 such igniters - and I grill nearly 3 times per week over the 25 week "grilling" season where I live. Spring for the $12 part and just replace it. The other issue sounds like a clogged cross-over system.  I would remove the burners, including the cross-over bar on the far left side that connects them.  Clean the exterior with a stiff steel/brass brush and the inside with a bottle brush.  Make sure all the holes are clear to allow gas to flow easily - use a wooden tooth-pick to do this to make sure you don't change the size of the holes! Put that baby back together and I think you'll find you'll be good as new!
These grills are great.  Now, if Weber could only fix the uneven heat problem between the left and right side I'd REALLY be happy!  (I wish they would even just admit there IS a problem!)
Good luck and happy grilling.
