SOURCE: 1 burner wont stop clicking on miele cooktop km 344

usually due to the ignition unit being faulty. being miele, the part will be pricey. another solution is to take out the ignition unit and take it into a local electrical repair outfit and see if it can be matched up with one from a different make. to check if this is the problem, interchange two electrode leads on the ignition unit and see if fault changers to another burner. you sometimes find that there is a spare ignition outlet on the ignition unit and this can be used as an alternative

Have you tried to just move the knob away from the 'Start" position. this sounds like the ignitor is still engaged. Aside from that, I'm not sure of a solution.

My Miele KM342 cooktop has one burner that keeps clicking when on, regardless if the other burners are on or not. This is annoying when cooking. Can it be fixed.

All the knobs have cracked stems. I need replacement parts.

My knobs did the same _ if you want to avoid expensive replacements (mine were going to be $125) get some small good quality zap straps and tighten 2-3 around the stem. For added strength you could add some apoxy but i found it was not necessary. Good Luck!

Electric ignitors clicking

I'm sorry that I don't have a solution for you, but my Miele gas stove does the same thing. I had a repairman come out while it was under warrantee and they fixed it, but it was only temporary. It's doing it again, but, of course, it's no longer under warantee and will be very expensive to have Miele come out again. I've found that it's the right front burner that causes the clicking, so I've just stopped using it.

Gas cooktops

Go for ease of cleaning. Avoid any light colors expecially the grates. White cooktop, light grey grates, AWFUL I replaced it within 6 months. Stainless or black is fine, very easy to clean. Make sure the drip area can contain a spill . Another importent thing, If you can see it connected, turn the flame down as much as possible and see if it stays lit. Pusling and relighting is a plus some higher end units do this. It is very hard to get a true low flame on a high BTU unit. Another big plus. See if the grates are arranged so you can slide a pan over without lifting. This seems a minor point but what a luxury.
