Question about Thermador PC366BS Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop
Hello- These burners can be difficult to disassemble. I would first try an brush the ignitor, electrode, with a wire brush if it is blackened just be careful not to crack the ceramic. Also, make sure that the burner cap is on correctly, it will not spark if the burner cap is not positioned correctly. In order to remove the burner you have to remove the Ventrui tube, this is the bronze nut with the tube attached that is in the center of the burner. You will need a 20MM socket. If you can get the venturi out the burner will pull off. I believe on this one you have to take off both burners in order to remove that section of the cooktop. Be very careful no to force the nut because if it starts to turn but is not actually loosening then you are turning the orifice holder underneath and can crimp or crack the gas supply tube to that burner. The problem with these is that they often do not come out and have to be drilled off and then replaced along with the orifice holder that it screws into under the cooktop. Now, if the problem is occurring on one of the burners that has the extra low simmer (the ones that you can set to come on and off at an interval) then you will probably need a Potentiometer kit which replaces the switches and the spark module. Unfortunately it will probably be best to have a Tech out who is familiar with Thermadors and their particular issues. Sorry
