I have a thermador gas stovetop, and today it just stopped releasing gas to a single burner. When I say it stopped, I mean on any other burner I can audibly hear gas released before ignition, but on this one, there is no sound, nothing, and it obviously doesn't ignite.

I have cleaned out the holes on the top piece, but it's pointless, because no gas at all is being released. Yet, all other burners work fine.

I wondered if each burner has a safety built in, that needs to be reset somehow, that prevents gas from coming out if it previously couldn't ignite (I did find a small piece of debris by the igniter at the beginning, so it's possible it failed a few times when someone used it earlier). I have unplugged the stove and plugged it back in, but I see no reset button or anything.

  • I agree contacting the MFG may be best it could be a safety or some moisture / debris stuck in the valve.

  • There might be some blockage down in the pipes that go between the gas line and the burner. I would also contact the manufacturer, because taking this apart isn't exactly a straightforward procedure. Mar 6, 2020 at 3:34

    Yeah, call a "gas appliance mechanic" or whatever they are called if you goof a repair on this stuff you, or someone else you love, can wind up dead.
