Electronic ignition doesn't work anymore. How do I manually light this?


Before you go to match lighting, have you changed the battery in the ignitor button? If you haven't, I'd start there first. Unscrew the ignitor cap and the battery's Positive Tip (+) will be facing you. Be sure to install the new battery in the same direction.While the battery is out, check for any corrosion that may be present in the battery holder. A Q-Tip & WD40 work well to clean out any corrosion.

To match light the burners ... use a long stick match (also called a hearth match) and carefully guide the match between the grates and under the flame tamers, as close to each burner as possible. Of course, the match should be lit prior to doing this. Turn each burner on individually, as you place the lighted match next to it. Once the burner lights, turn it down to low and move to the next burner and so on, until all the burners you want to use are lit. Then set the flame heights where you want them.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

The automatic ignition on my gas grill is not functioning. What's the alternative lighting method. A match?


YES, YOU CAN DO A MATCH.
BEFORE YOU LIGHT IT WITH A MATCH, REMOVE THE TOP GRILL TO
EXPOSE THE BURNER BELOW IT.
THIS WAY THE MATCH WHEN LIT AND THROWN IN WILL NOT GET STUCK IN THE
GRILL AREA WHILE THE GAS IS ON. THEN MORE GAS WILL BE IN THERE
BEFORE YOU GET ANOTHER MATCH LIT TO THROW IN. NEXT THING
YOU KNOW, THE MATCH DROPS DOWN IN BETWEEN THE GRILL AND
FINALLY MAKES THE BURNER AREA AND GOES 'BOOM'!
REMOVING THE TOP GRILL MAKES IT EASY TO TOSS THE MATCH
DOWN BY THE BURNER AFTER A FEW SECONDS WITHOUT A 'BOOM'.
TO FIX YOUR ELECTRONIC START BUTTON ON MOST UNITS, RE-POSITION
THE ARC UNIT IN THE BURNER AREA, TO BE CLOSER TO THE METAL IT ARCS TO.
IT IS MOST LIKELY VIBRATED AWAY FROM IT TO FAR AND THE ARC WILL NOT REACH
METAL OR GROUND TO MAKE AN ARC TO LIGHT THE GAS.

We have a thermador 5 burner gas range top and the pilot light seems to have gone out. The burners don't go on but we smell gas. How do we re-light it?


Most gas range tops no longer have pilot lights but use an electronic ignition (sparker) to light the burner. Normally when you turn the burner on you should here a snapping or sparking sound, at which point the burner should ignite. Here is a link to the user manual for 36" - 5 burner Thermador rangetop...maybe this will help: http://dl.owneriq.net/a/ac64ae7b-1ed3-44a3-9235-e4dbd8fe4628.pdf

By the way, in the short term you could always use a match to light the burner. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL THE YOU HAVE THE MATCH LIT AND OVER THE DESIRED BURNER BEFORE YOU TURN KNOB TO START THE BURNER!!!!

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit


I have fix that problem before, the oven heat is soficating the top burners, you will have to adjust top burners with the oven on, so that they will light by them selfs.Or put a shield under the cook top section on the back, so that the heat will not come to the burners where they get the oxigen.

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

Burners will not light or stay lit


lhs burner - problem is probably thermo-couple. this is a safety device which prevents gas escape if flame blows out. rhs burner - you do not say if it can be lit by a match. if so then it is a problem with the electrode or the wire to it chaffed thro. if can't be lit by a match, then a problem with the gas valve which is unusual not a diy fix unless you are experienced
