    Basically I'm just struggling to unscrew the regulator from the square gas tube which is part of the cooktop. It's a standard Harper-Wyman regulator for 10" W.C. LP. There is light brown gunk on the exposed threads which is probably holding it tight. The regulator is garbage and I have a replacement but I can't seem to get it to budge.

    I got it off with two 24" wrenches.

SOURCE: replace dcs gas cooktop re-ignition module

donho1,

most likely the problem is the switch places onto the shaft of the valve. to replace the switch, you would need to remove the burner cap and port rings. you will see a large brass nut that needs to be removed on all 4 or 5 burners. next you would need to remove the nut in the center of the simmer port ring which is also the venturi for the main burner. you must be careful when removing this nut as they have a tendancy to lock onto the jet holder and could be hard to remove (don't strip or break the venturi or holder).....after you remove those nuts, the burners and top can be removed (watch the igniter wires). you can remove the switch by removing the retainer clip that holds the switch onto the valvestem.

While trying to remove the top of the cooktop, I seem to have stripped the threads of the copper tube securing one of the burners. How can I remove the top of the cooktop?


Not sure of your situation but if you can get a flat screwdriver and wedge it under what you are trying to unscrew and pry up as you are unscrewing it you may get it.

How do I remove knobs for burners to clean them?


To remove the knobs from the cooktop you just pull them off. They are only presser fitted on a post.

Electronic igniters will not turn off when the gas burner lites. all four igniters run untill you turn off the nob or unplug the unit


I'm dealing with this same problem. This cooktop has a dedicated simmer burner which is the only thing going on the lowest setting. This simmer burner seems to be how the igniter senses that it can stop. If it doesn't light, the igniter keeps clicking. Usually cleaning the burner will solve this. You may need to unscrew the nut holding the lower piece of the burner in place in order to clean it up.
Good luck!

The igniters will not stop sparking on my dcs cooktop when I turn the burners on. This happens with all burners.


Because this is happening on all burners, i would say you have a faulty ground to the ignition module.

Good advise on removing the knob. My problem is that the Valve stem has excessive play in it. How do I replace valve stem.


Hi, the valve stem on a gas stove is on a manifold assembly under the top. If I am correct in remembering, the burner valve unscrews to replace them. If so, take it with you along with all of the numbers,M#, S #, and so on. Best of Luck,

the reason for the fitting instruction for the regulator to be connected directly is that flex hoses deteriorate and allow a dangerous situation
AS gas is not in the diy domain I recommend that you get in an accredited gas fitter who will make a solid pipe to allow the fitment of the regulator away from the motor
While he is there he can adjust the regulator to get it all working correctly

DCS range igniter won't stop


Hey all ... I just had a repairman fix my DCS cooktop that was doing the same thing ... ignitor problem. He replaced it and it's good as new. (Cleaning also did NOT work for me.) It cost me $216 for the repair. If you can find the part, it's pretty easy to replace. Just take off the front knobs (be careful as there is a 'ring' inside the neck of the knob) and unscrew the front. You will need a special screwdriver - looks like a star - but just snip the plastic straps holding the original ignitor in place and put the new one on the same way as the old one. You should be good as new. REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE BREAKER!!! I can't imagine it would take more than an hour (tops) 'cause it looked pretty easy.
