Do any of the burners work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The problem is intermittent. The electric starter which goes click, click, click stops clicking. When it does click to make a spark the burners go on. The problem seems to be in the device which initiates the spark.

Does it do it on all the burners or just one of them?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The start causes a spark on each burner when that burner is turned on. No spark occurs on any burner.

I am not following this? Can you please explain in detail what is happening?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The themador stove top has 4 gas burners. Each burner has a device on it which causes a spark to start the fire. When you turn the knob the entire way on a particular burner it initiates a spark to that burner which starts the fire.
I am sure that each burner does not have an independent electric starter, but there is a main device that sends an electrical signal to that burner to start it sparking.
The device that sends that signal stopped working for all the burners. Which means there is a common device which sends that signal to each of the burners.
My question is: where do I buy a replacement for this starter device for the thrermador table top stove?

Thanks for the detailed information, you need a new spark module for the unit you can go to Repairclinic.com with the complete model number off the unit to purchase one. They are typically Blue in color and would look like this. CLICK HERE
