Question about Thermador SGS36GS Gas Cooktop

Open Question

I have a Thermador SGCS365RB gas cooktop with Xtra-Low burners. On one of the XtraLow Burners, gas runs, but there is no spark. I bought a new igniter but realized that if I turn on any of the other burners, the burner that does not light by itself gets spark. Here is where it gets a bit confusing. If I turn on the Xlo burner, I hear gas but nothing happens. I turn on another burner and this one lights. If this burner is off and I turn on another burner then turn on this burner, I get a single spark, but it seems like it is not getting gas and does not light. Any ideas?

You have defective potentiometer. The cost for parts is about $125.00 plus labor

SOURCE: Cleaning Thermador Cooktop?

To clean the stainless around the star burners try applying Easy-Off oven cleaner around the stars with a Q-tip (spray the cleaner onto the stainless surface first because it's very hard to control the spray output). The cleaner will make your stainless sparkle and the Q-tips allow you to get close enough while controlling the application. Scrub gently with the Q-tip and the stains will disappear within minutes. Wash thoroughly with a wet cloth. I've used this on my older model Thermador stainless cooktop for 5 years.

Hello Sharon,
are the two left hand burners "simmer burners" that low come on and go off to simmer a pot?
and the right side just set on and turn off without the simmer option?

if yes this pretty much describes your cooktop the part called the potentiometer is going the be the problem.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Clogged burner on gas cooktop


lowly is it the left burners that won't lite? I only ask as depending on the model some of the Thermador cook tops had simmer control burners. This is a 3 part system on the burners. 1 a simmer control, 2 electric solenoid, 3 potentiors. When you turn on the burner the potentior tells the simmer control to send power to the gas solenoid. At the same time the unit will spark. If your unit has extra low on the left 2 burners then you have this system. The usual problem in the potentior. Hope this helps.

Do you hear gas? If so, take a needle and put it through each one of the small holes where the gas comes out.... Also look for a little "white-dust" where the sparker makes the spark. (located probaly at back of burner). If there is a white dust build-up scrape it off with something (needle) and give her another go...
