Lowly is it the left burners that won't lite? I only ask as depending on the model some of the Thermador cook tops had simmer control burners. This is a 3 part system on the burners. 1 a simmer control, 2 electric solenoid, 3 potentiors. When you turn on the burner the potentior tells the simmer control to send power to the gas solenoid. At the same time the unit will spark. If your unit has extra low on the left 2 burners then you have this system. The usual problem in the potentior. Hope this helps.

SGCS304RS The two left burners work. The two right burners, spark but no gas comes out.


The regulators are clogged and so there is no gas flow due to this. use a good brush to clean the burner tops so as to get the mixture of gas /air correct. Use pressurized air to clean the valve, clean the JETS and reset.

2 burners wont ignite


Hello there:
A burner doesn't work The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite. The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Gas cooktop igniting and lighting but when you stop the igniting the gas does not stay lit


It seems like one of your burners is clogged. You made need to use some oen cleaner and a small toothbrush to clean the burner. If the problem occurs with all the burners, then you have a blockage in the gas supply line. you willm have to take it apart at the stove and clear it out. Check the main gas connection and at the burner(s) to spot the debris clogging. Make sure to shut your gas valve off behind the stove. Good luck... hope this helps.

The flame are too low, cannot keep a large pot of water rolling boil. was much better when it was new, any adjustment cannot be made ?


check to see if the burners are free of deposits from carbon and grease build up. The tiny holes in the burners get clogged with grease and carbon.

One burner on gas cooktop fires up but goes tick, tick tick.


There may well be water in the burner. It will evaporate in a day or two. Then it will work fine again.

One burner on a 6-burner gas cooktop misbehaving


sounds like the air /gas mixture is off.look at where the burner meets the gas valve (the knob) under the grates and play with the adjuster turn it slowly while the burner is on and this will change the value of the air/gas mixture good luck

Gas cooktop - burner won't ignite


Hello
Check the air mixture on that one and make sure is like the other ones, it should be a slide sleeve that rotates to adjust the air, and make sure that, no bigfire yellow tips when switch is on high.
Hope this help
