Question about Thermador Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a 36 inch thermador gas cooktop with 5 burners model SGC365R. None of the burners will light. The ignitors click, it looks like there is a small flame flickering in a circular motion and that stops. The pilot light on our Water heater works, the gas oven works. I tried lighting with a match and that doesn't work. They worked Thursday for dinner, were not used on Friday, don't work today. We have swimming pool being put in, they may have turned off gas, but obviously turned it back on since the pilot light is lit. Help, thanks.

Dear Kathynearing,

Hi. I have experience cooking in a burner like that it keeps on burning coz the ignition coil was press by your switch knob coz the spring was stack up try to release it so that it will not be ignited all the time when your cooking. This should be ignited at once. If it gives light already it should be released. Please reply if you have solved the problem so that I can give you more advices.

SOURCE: No gas to the oven. Ignitor is lit. Top burners work properly.

I have the same problem. The burners work but not the oven. Ours started beeping with a FO code. The tech came out and said the control panel is bad and needs to be replaced. He also said ALOT of people are having the same problem and they might do some kind of recall down the road but for know we have to wait til Jan to get our part to fix it. Boo

SOURCE: My Thermador Range (Model #GCV36G)

A yellow flame that high indicates that the air input is low so the mixture is too rich, so it lights very hard and it gets a poor flame.
The defect is in the burner, it's clogged by dirt. Try to clean it from the outside just by pulling every loose parts. If that fails the top of the range will have to be removed to access the entire burner, take it out from it, dismantled and cleaned thoroughly.
You can find the necessary diagrams here

But i must warn you: you will be working on a gas unit; if you can't be sure you can do the job properly, without causing any leaks afterwards, you should call a repairman.

SOURCE: My 36" sealed gas cooktop

I had that problem also. It seemed to me that when anyone set the flame too high for the size of pan, the burner overheated. Then when the burner was turned off the igniter made clicking noises for a few hours...till it cooled down.

When I cooked at a lower setting all was ok.

This is free help...please take time to rate me....good luck.

Ignitor keeps clicking


I have the same problem, believe it's a bad potentiometer on the two left extra low burners. The other four use a micro switch that you can hear click when you turn the knob. My problem is can't figure out how to remove control panel.

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir


older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

Ge profile gas range. one burner with no clicking and no ignition


You may have a bad burner switch. If you turn one of the other burner switches to make the spark modules spark look and see if the electrode is sparking at the bad burner. Most of the spark modules send a spark to all 4 burners when activated. If it sparks when another burner is activated open the valve and see if the burner will ignite. If so you probably have a bad burner switch.

LP conversion for Thermador 4 burner range top


I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.
