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.

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.

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!!!!

One gas cooktop does not light, no gas smell


Hello Liz. The most common reason for the problem you are experiencing is greasey dirt in the burner. Use a small brush, some fine wire and some degreaser to clean up the burner. Then let it dry overnight and try it again. If it still won't start, you will have to replace the ignitor.

I would have someone come out. Perhaps a gas plumber first. Gas is not something you want to fool around with yourself.
