How to replace thermador professional surface igniter

Replacing the surface igniter on a Thermador Professional stove top involves the following steps: 1. Safety First: Ensure the gas supply to the stove is turned off and there are no open flames nearby. Also, disconnect the stove from the power source to prevent electrical accidents. 2. Access the Stove Top: Lift the grates and burner caps to access the burner assembly. Depending on the model, you may need to remove screws or clips to lift the cooktop for better access. 3. Locate the Surface Igniter: The surface igniter is typically found near the burner base, connected by a wire to the spark module. 4. Disconnect the Igniter: Carefully detach the wire connector that connects the surface igniter to the spark module. If the connector has a clip, press it to release the wire. 5. Remove the Surface Igniter: Unscrew or unclip the igniter from its mounting bracket. Be gentle, as the igniter is delicate. 6. Install the New Surface Igniter: Place the new igniter in the same position as the old one and secure it with screws or clips. 7. Connect the Wire: Reattach the wire connector to the new surface igniter, ensuring it's secure. 8. Test the Igniter: Before reassembling, turn on the gas supply and power, and test the new igniter by turning on the burner. Check for sparks to verify proper functionality. 9. Reassemble: Put the stove top back together by repositioning the cooktop and securing any screws or clips removed earlier. 10. Final Check: Test all burners to ensure the new surface igniter works correctly. If you're unsure about any step or encounter difficulties, consult the stove's manual or seek assistance from a professional technician to ensure safety and proper installation. Always prioritize safety and follow all recommended precautions when working with gas appliances.
