Hello.
What the problem is a part in the cooktop that opens to let gas flow to the knobs as soon as they are turned on is bad and no gas coming to surface unit burners. This a safety feature that the German goverment(where Gaggenau is made) requires that part to prevent a gas leak when cooktop is off.

Ge Monogram Gas Cooktop - won't boil water - burners seem like they are starved for gas


Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.

Low flame from gas cooktop


you can adjust the flames as follows pull a knob and look in the end of the brass peice you will see a small screw first you have to find a screw driver that will fit then with a pair of pliers hold the outer peice with the burner on and turn the screw one way rasies other lowers ideal adj is to turn buner all the way up then fast down if flame goes out to low keep working like that till flame is low but doesnt go out

Gas cook top


Most of the time when I come out for a service call with this problem, it is usually because the burner cap is not seated properly on the base. Look at the burner and make sure there are no uneven gaps. Most of the time you will have to rotate the burner cap till a notch or pin "seats" into place. Most burner caps just sit on the bases, and so they get knocked off or moved when the cooktop is cleaned or installed. Hope this helps!

Flame too low


Most probably dirty jets. If water was spuilled, there is a possibility of rust forming on some parts. Low flames are usually due to inadequate gas supply, due to dirty jets and burners. Often rust forms on the top burners in the little holes, causing slight blockage - clean the holes with a needle properly and check. Oshie

Gaggenau clicking


Sounds like the spill got into one of the burner switches. This is not a big problem. Once it drys out it should return to normal. However if it keeps on clicking it could mean that one of the switches shorted out and will need to be replaced. The switches are located under the burner control knobs on the valve. Hope this helps.
