Question about Thermador Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

I have a Thermador PCG484EW Gas cook top with two out of four burners that won't light. The 6 Point Gas Re-Igniter module has good voltage going into it from the simmer control so I assumed that the Re-Igniter module was bad and replaced it. The sysmtoms remain the same. I can get any one burner to work by unplugging the others from the Re-Igniter but when they are all plugged in it seams like there is just not enough power to ignite them. Is it normal for several burners to spark when I try to light one? This test also proves that the gas valve is good. Is it possible that I bought a bad Re-Igniter with the exact same sysmtoms or can I be missing something else? My service Tech worked on the thing for a year before I fired him and got involved myself. Can you tell me what Gas Re-Igniter is supposed to be in it. I think he replaced it once himself. Perhaps he bought the wrong one and I replaced it with another one like he bought? The one he put in and the one I put in is a Tytronics Model RI326. Help!! Mike mtschieber@yahoo.com

    For proper lighting and performance of the burners, keep the
    ports clean. It is necessary to clean these when there is a boil over or when the burner does not light even though the electronic
    igniters activate.

    if burners dont ignite check the following.

    • Are the burner caps properly aligned on the burner bases
    (Sealed Surface Burners)?
    • Are the burner ports clogged?
    • Is a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker tripped?
    • Is the manual shut-off valve closed, preventing the flow of
    gas?
    • Are the Wok pilot ports clogged?
    • Is the spark igniter sparking (Surface Burners and Wok)?
    • Is there flame on the Wok pilot burner?


    try that and see if there is any result

your issue is the potentiometers kit which includes the simmer controller; Bosch redesigned it a couple of years ago due to the serveral issues, the re-lite spark module is RARELY the issue. and yes it is normal on all cooktops for all the burner to spark until you have igniton because the electrodes are wired in series. you may also need a prof. electrician check you pwr source because due to sudden drops in voltage or amperage could cause continuous issues with your liting sys

How to fix igniter for top burners


Hello. The range you have has a spark ignitor module inside the top, beneath the cooktop. Also, there is a spark ignition harness that has the four switches(snapped onto each of the burner valves at the control panel) connected together(daisy chained) that goes to the module and the incoming 120v supply. HOWEVER, the bigger issue here is getting to the module, harness, and other parts beneath the cooktop. Gas ranges are notorious for having the mount screws seize in the burners. When removing them is attempted, the heads usually snap off causing burner replacement to be necessary(which is why I listed the part numbers for the burners and screws). The cost of this can be high. I suggest calling for service if you are at all hesitant about working on the range.

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

I havef a KitchenAid Gas Range Model KGSS907... and one of the ignitors on one of the burners is not sparking. I tried to take the stove top off to check the wire to the ignitor but don't see how to...


Hello,

Typically the burner come off by removing the burner caps and inside the burners are 2 screws that hold the burner base to the top..yes you could swap igniters on all burners they will be the same. If by swapping the igniters it still doesnt work the things that could be the problem are;

the spark module espically if the igniter that doesnt work on that burner suddendly work on a different burner

the spark switch on the gas valve for that burner..typically all burners spark when one it turned on but the only one that lights is one that has gas flow to it..so turning on a different burner first and leave it set to light setting by turning on the one that doesnt light it will light if that spark switch is the problem

of course a cracked igniter

a broken wire from the spark module to that igniter taht doesnt work..its not that uncommon that the insulation will sometimes wear off a wire off so the electric that should be going from the spark module to the igniter is instead being grounded by that wire touching the metal on the frame uninsulated

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your range,

I have a magic chef oven model # 61S04PAW. the


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

One of the gas burners does not open.


The valve is either clogged or defective.  Best bet is to get a new valve.  Servicing old ones is a poor bet. If you are unsure how to install it, get a service person.  Gas can be dangerous if the job is done wrong.

The igniters wont light the burners


49er, if none of the igniter switches work you're on the right track. Follow those wires and you'll come to a "spark module". This will need to be replaced. Part number 74008821... lists at about $21.00. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
