Hello- You got lucky and only have one stuck, unfortunately you will need to order a few more parts. The only way to get the venturi out is to drill it off, drill it down enough that you can get the burner around what use to be the nut portion of the venturi. You will also need to get the orifice holder that the ventrui screws into under the cooktop. These parts are pretty cheap. You could try to put some LIquid Wrench around the ventrui overnight but be sure not to try to force it out too much because the gas supply tube to that burner can get creased if the orifice holder starts to turn... What works best for me to drill the venturi is a countersink, preferably for metal, which has it's largest diameter bigger than the outside of the venturi. Get some cutting oil and start drilling, the ventrui's cut pretty easily but take your time and try not to damage the burner. Once you get down real close to the burner you can try to carefully pry the burner over the remnants of the venturi. Good luck, hope this helps. Best regards.

Hello- The extra low simmer burners are indeed troublesome. Sometimes you do have to drill-off the burners, sometimes all of them. This is can be very time consuming depending on if you have the right tools. The issue is you have to get the top off the unit in order to access the spark module and switches that come with the Potentiometer kit (the parts they will need to replace). As well, they will have to replace the Venturi Tubes that were drilled off and the orifice holders as well because the venturi screws into this. I would get a parts cost and labor estimate and consider also the cost of installing a new cooktop. I have done many of these, it's the same on their ranges, and it can take a couple of hours. I will say that I have never needed another persons help to do the repair. Hope this helps, best regards.

We have a Thermador Mod SGCS365RW 5-burner that was new in 2001 and installed for Propane. It has worked fine until yesterday - the top center burner does not get gas to the burner. The igniter works fine....


Hi, if the other 4 burners are working fine, the problem must be in the valve stem. There is a linkage inside the valve body which may have stripped itself. If this is the case you would need to replace the valve.

Stainless Steel Cover for Grill


Yes the parts are available .As for the removing the material left on the cover,I would use a very light 400 sandpaper first to see if that makes progress.Without seeing the cover it's not advised to give any advice, only because without the right pressure and tool used it will vary on how this will be removed.

Replace dcs gas cooktop re-ignition module


donho1,

most likely the problem is the switch places onto the shaft of the valve. to replace the switch, you would need to remove the burner cap and port rings. you will see a large brass nut that needs to be removed on all 4 or 5 burners. next you would need to remove the nut in the center of the simmer port ring which is also the venturi for the main burner. you must be careful when removing this nut as they have a tendancy to lock onto the jet holder and could be hard to remove (don't strip or break the venturi or holder).....after you remove those nuts, the burners and top can be removed (watch the igniter wires). you can remove the switch by removing the retainer clip that holds the switch onto the valvestem.
