  1. Can someone tell me how I can set the correct gap on the broiler ignitor for this range Thermador PGR486GDLP. I have checked everything on this range and everything is in working order but I cannot get the broiler to ignite. I'm getting gas to the broiler and the ignitor is giving a great spark, but i have no ignition. Any help would be appreciated. I know I'm grasping at straws at this point but the only thing that I could think of at this point is that the distance between the spark and the gas is off.
  2. I recently cleaned a takagi tankless tk-3 with a vinegar solution. Now the heater does not light reliably. I can hear a solenoid of some type open and close, open and close - in rapid succession every few seconds, and sometimes the flame comes on, but I do not hear the fast clicking of the ignitor like I do I my own tk-junior.   I'm wondering if cleaning the unit with vinegar may have affected a sensor internally - or maybe even damaged it. Anyone have experience with Takagi units? Fault code is 111 - poor ignition. I'll do a google search for other info out there and will return to this post with updates, as I see there is not a lot of input on this site with tankless water heaters specifically.
  3. I checked out a 4-burner GE gas cooktop where one of the burners does not activate the ignitor when the control is set to the 'Light' position. The ignitor is good, I see it sparking when any of the other 3 burners are turned to the 'Light' position. I figure the ignition switch will need to be replaced (it actually does work once in a blue moon), but I can't say I've ever had the pleasure of changing an ignition switch on one of these cooktops. I usually have avoided these jobs because it looks like something that would require an extra pair of hands to get the thing up and out, and I'm also concerned about damaging their counter top. Either way, I was wondering if this repair would require me to remove the cooktop from the counter or if there's a way to do it that wouldn't require removing it from it's installation. Anyone done work on these that could shed some light? Again, model # is JGP336WEV4WW.   Thanks! Trevor

  8. Hi Samurai,    I have a Wolf Range, 36" 6 burner. And I have 2 problems.    1. The ignition is irregular. Sometimes it sparks right away and sometimes it take a while, if not a long while. All the ignitors seem to be firing. And it's not always the same burner that has the ignition problem. What could this be? I will take a wire brush to the sparkers if needed, but don't want to jump to any conclusions without some advice.    2. The 2 right burners seem to have something wrong with the fuel/air mixture. The flame is too big on high, and with orange/yellow tips. The PG&E people with their meters read that the back right burner is outputting CO gas and recommended not using that burner. Is this something I can adjust?     Thank you,  Thomas

  11. Sorry for the Unsui move of no model number, I will get one asap, will go back in a little while. Tenants said that heat was intermittent. (Why I cant I get these calls during the week?) Furnace flashing code 14 - Ignition Lockout - Ignition will auto reset after 3 hours (refer 34) I open the unit and put back together, tripping the door switch I guess, she started to cycle again. LED steady. Everything seemed normal, little fan spinning, blower starts up, ignition coil turns read, flames look great.... and poof, everything shuts down. ( Want to say the blower stopped at some point and I wasnt sure if that was normal.) LED flashing code 34 - Ignition Proving Failure Control will try 3 times... 3rd time a charm. Lights up, fires up, blower running, heat good. Light steady when I left, but I know I need to do something. Service code 34 says: -Oxide build up on O2 sensor (clean with fine sandpaper) -Proper Flame sense microamps (.5 microamps minimum) -Gas stuff ( I think is fine) Green wire (ground?) check Inadequate flame carry over or rough ignition. Plan to clean O2 sensor (where?), check my ground and replace the filter. Also while every thing is open give the blower and other dusty components a good dusting. You guys know, what else do I need to do, check, etc. DOMO arigatou. Tsuriman
  12. Thermostat working, pilot lights. I tripped the breaker to 'off', Ten minutes later turned tstat to 80, turned on the breaker. Pilot lit instantly with good flame. During warm-up time, several loud clicks at two different times. TWO minutes later, burners fired nicely. Lowered tstat and unit shut down normally. Raised tstat.... identical results. Eight hours later, got the call for no heat. Repeated above, pilot lit and burners never fired...no clicks this time. Luckily it's warm today! Please help!
