My Thermador range has one burner that will not spark. I can smell and her gas and will light if I ignite it manually, but no spark from the range on that burner. All other burners work fine. I need to knwo how to fix it, including how to access the spark module and other components.

One moment while I get some information for you!

I noticed that the other expert opted out here. Chances are since it is only one burner not lighting on its own then the problem is with your spark electrode and will need to be replaced.

This is not your unit but a video on how to replace a spark electrode

I may have given you the unit number for a cooktop. Mine is a range and the correct mode is pd484ggbs but I think the cooktop and this range are compatible.
The link to the manual takes me to a page not found. And the instructions are not really helpful. The Thermador range top is significantly different from the video. The burners are sealed and the top itself does not tilt up. I can't see where the correct fasteners (screws) are that need to be removed to get to the electrode. It's not a standard flip up cooktop as far as I can tell. How do I get to the electrode? Do the burners themselves come off from above the cooktop?
