Thermador Gas Cooktop Won't Stop Clicking : SGC304RS

Hello,
We just purchased and installed a used Thermador (4 burner) Gas Cooktop (model SGC304RS).
Upon testing the burners, they all ignited, but the clicker will NOT turn off. We turned the valves from low to high and no dice. This happens when only one or any combination of burners are on.

Thanks for any help!

    Thank You, Chris 72.



    Does anyone have a part number for the Spark Modual on a Thermador Gas Cooktop Model SGC304RS? Could you recommend a good replacement parts website??

    Thanks Again!!

    i had an overflow and now all 4 of the ignitors are clicking continually

    The burners started clicking without any burner being turned on and now they won't shut off. We have to open the breaker (or unplug) to stop the clicking. This is the six burner professional model. ive of the six burners will light and the sixth burner doesn't release any gas. This problem happened without any warning. I went into the kitchen at 7:00am to get a drink of water and there was no clicking - an hour later my wife asked me why the burners were clicking. No one had touched the cooktop.

    When I ignite any of the four outside burners on my Thermador cooktop (only about a year old), the center ignitor clicks and sparks. The burner does not ignite. But the ignitor clicks and sparks. The center burner ignites properly when I want to ignite it. Is the ignitor on the center burner supposed to do that? If not, is there a way to fix it? Thanks.

    Took out cooktop to get new counters. The foam tape around the underside is gross and I think needs to be replaced. Does it serve a purpose?

Try grounding the cooktop. I had the same problem. I ran a wire from the stove to a water pipe, and the clicking stopped.

BTW: I am looking for a used thermador 36" cooktop in working order or for parts. Any ideas?

I am not sure of the model number but the gas cooktop was purchased in 1998. The 2 burners on the left side all of a sudden are not ingiting. There is no gas and the igniters are not sparking. the other...

Hello Sharon,
are the two left hand burners "simmer burners" that low come on and go off to simmer a pot?
and the right side just set on and turn off without the simmer option?

if yes this pretty much describes your cooktop the part called the potentiometer is going the be the problem.

Constant sparking

I don't have a Thermador cooktop but here is ma taught.

Could you unplug the two faulty igniters and see if problem remained

Could you plug one of the faulty igniter at the location of a good one. The goal is to isolate the problem. Is it the igniter or the electronic board.

Faulty ground problem may occur also after an spillover on the stove. In that case, use a cotton swab dipped in scrubbing alcool and clean the spark area on the igniter and the burner.

Good luck

Igniter issue - some do not turn on other do not turn off

I would try cleaning the burners. You can purchase cleaning brushes made specifically for this purpose and they work like a charm.
