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

Testimonial: "Thanks for the input, sounds like you know your stuff. I'll try cleaning the igniter first but fooling with the Venturi tube sounds touchy."

Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites


Test the ignitor first, if the ignitor does not spark should be the ignitor itself.

Why want middle burner light automatically but will light with a lighter


That unit is suppose to have electronic quartz igniters. Apparently there's a problem but it doesn't automatically mean the igniter needs to be replaced. If you see a spark from the igniter then it's fine. If you see a spark but no flame then the ignition process is out of synchronization. In other words, the gas hasn't concentrated near the spark enough to ignite. This may be a matter of low gas pressure or the extra length the gas needs to flow to reach the center burner is impeding ignition. Simple fix is turn the knob just enough to start the gas for 2 seconds then continue the turn to click the igniter. or simply use a match. You may also see if there are any adjustments on the gas manifold that will enhance bringing more gas to the center burner quicker. Some unit have one click & that's it, others click the igniter continuously until you release turning the knob. Good luck. you'll figure it out.

Cooktop burner do not ihnite


Hi hgodoy2 - Is the electronic igniter aligned properly? Ensure that tip of spark igniter is aligned with metal point or "nib" located on underside of burner cap after the burner mounting screws have been tightened. (Not all burners having mounting screws). When the burner control knob is set to the "LITE" position do the igniters spark? Can gas be heard or smelled coming from the burners when the control number is turned on? However, if you smell gas, I highly recommend turning the unit and the gas off if you can reach it and contact your gas provider. The range itself does not have a switch or regulator to relight it. Keep in mind that it may be experiencing an issue with the spark module, electrodes, wiring or EOC.

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner


There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.

2 of 4 burner ignitions are not sparking


If the ignitors are clean and have a good ground it sounds like the spark module is bad since 2 are out at the same time. You should have a 1yr warranty on this unit. Call your local authorized repair person. Please rate this post.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob
