My gas stovetop does not spark

3 Replies

Hi I have a thermador gas cooktop model# sgcs365rs that does not spark at any of the igniters. This happened all of a sudden where the night before they were working to now none of them spark. I did notice that one of the knobs was not turned all the way to the off position. Luckily it Seems it was turned just far enough to not leak gas but not any further. Could this be the cause of what made all my igniters to all stop sparking? What is most likely the issue here in your opinion?

@Vinson Lee Greetings,

Sounds like an electrical issue if all of them stopped working. Is the unit plugged in? Does the outlet have power? Have you checked the breaker to see if it's tripped?

@Vinson Lee  Buy a grill lighter. I know this sounds crazy but I am jaded. I bought a 2000 (top of the line) cooktop and for three years I had a service man come out and "fix" this issue for me. Another 2000 dollars later I bought a 3 dollar grill lighter and put it in the utensil drawer. About one a year will work.
