Question 5 burner gas thermador-x low setting not working
Model Number: SGCS365RW   Brand: Thermador   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I purchased this 5 burner cooktop used and discovered it has a check date of 6/23/00 -much older than it appeared. All the burners light and adjust thru to low, but NONE of the extra low stay lighted when I turn them to the superlow setting..they click and I can hear the gas valve turn off. It relights fine when I dial it back to low setting, and I hear the valve turn back on at the burner. I am kind of lost here, as I can't seem to get a manual and my experience with cooktops was replacing the valves in a much older unit years ago. (and I got them all in the wrong burners, then!)

This unit was purchased from the fundraising location of Habitat for Humanity, and I was told it was set for LP gas. Not even sure if that was true...but no idea how to tell! Would the unit work at all if it were set up for Natural Gas and I connected it to LP?

I know, a lot of questions here! I really need some help..I am pretty handy with most things, just don't quite understand cooktops.(yet)

Just thought I would suggest something as I own a pro line Thermador gas range with 2 xtra-low top burners. once you turn the dial past the simmer setting you get a timed simmer setting which turns the flame on and off for varying amounts of time depending on how low you set it. It is computer controlled and is supposed to turn on and off to get the temperatures lower than the lowest simmer setting. Hope this helps. even though you don't have the same model this may also be how your burner works. wait to see if the burner relights after x number of minutes on its own in the extra low setting range.

Smile You are correct!!!

Thank you VERY much for suggesting that these burners work by turning the gas valve on and off to maintain the temp! You were 100% correct-I suppose this was something that was in the manual, which, in keeping with my experiences with Thermador (this is my 3rd cooktop of theirs in the last 30 years) is NEVER available once they discontinue a model. It's like they don't want people to have them. Sheesh. Thanks again! -Tuolumne Nick
