Question about Miele 36 in. KM3474 Gas Cooktop
I have the 5 burner stove top KM 3474 with a right super burner which shuts off after 30 seconds. The other 4 burners ignite and remain on w/o any problem.
I have tried the following w/o any success
1). Swap burner unit from the left working super burner.
2) Cleaned the thermocouple with fine steel wool.
3). Reseated the knob.
I suspect the issue is that the thermocouple unit is not sending the correct voltage to the igniter unit so the gas is automatically cut off.
Miele tech support charges $170 (+parts) to send a technician out. There also appears to be no one local willing to touch Miele stove tops.
Miele tech support emailed me a repair manual for the KM 342 which appears to be an older version. The bottom plate of my KM 3474 has a "KM 342" label so mechanically, at least, the service manual appears to apply.
Has anyone had any success repairing a Miele stove top and getting repair parts ?
Does the burner attempt to re-ignite after it goes out? If so, it's probably the therocouple. If not, it could be the burner valve. Be sure the caps and rings are correctly seated on the burners and be sure to firmly press the burner knob down to start the flame.

How about the reverse, the burner lights, the ignitor clicks off but starts attempting reignite again even though flame is on. Any probable solutions to this problem??
