Question about Thermador SGS36GS Gas Cooktop

Thermadore cooktop SGCS365RS

No gas to one burner. Now no spark to any burners. Was told that Thermadore has had an on-going problem with this and they have a replacement kit to take care of the ignition. Is this true and what is the part number for the kit? Also, any ideas about the burner doesn't seem to be getting gas?

    I don't seem to be getting gas into one burner. I can't hear the gas like I can with the other burners. The clicking starts but does not ignite...I think because there is no gas. What should I do? Thanks.

This unit should be equiped with a re-ignition system. This is controled be a gas solinoid just under top main top of the unit. You will have to removethe top to gain access. And if you have no spark to any burner also check the spark modual.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

There are a series of holes in the burner leading down from the main flame area to the pilot tube, ensure the holes are not plugged/restricted.

I need to repalce the potentionmeter in my thermadore cooktop


Hello.
I have worked on a few of these, and it looks like you have one of the cooktops that you need to take off all of the burner bases with a socket wrench, and remove all of the knobs. (Sometimes the burner base bolts are very hard to remove. I have had to carefully heat them up with my torch in order to get them off. A pain in the neck.) The potentiometer is on the burner valve. I am sure you will recognize it when you open it up.
Always make sure you unplug it before working on it because when you go to put the cooktop surface back on, you may push down on a burner valve activating the spark module and you will get a good zap.
You should be able to buy the part from the following links http://www.coastparts.com/mfgs.asp

Extra low burner that won't ignite


Lowly what the potentior does is turn on the burner control system. When you turn on a normal burner you are opening a gas valve and closing a switch to generate a spark. Thus gas flow to the burner and spark. On the extra low simmer burner there is a electric solenoid between the burner head and the gas valve. this has to open as well for gas to flow. What the potentior does is signal the simmer control what level of flame you are requesting and telling the spark module to generate a spark. Once you go to the exlow setting the potentior tells the simmer control what level of heat and will cycle the flame on and off. So when the burner knob was between low and extra low, the flame would cycle on and off. You have to seperate the top section of the cooktop from the burner box to change the potentior for it sits on top of the gas valve for that burner.
