thermador gas range burner won't light, model pd36

while using the left front burner to cook it suddenly went out and won't relight, 2 left burners won't light and the igniter does not click there is no gas flow either because it won't light with a match, but the right burners front and back work fine.

Hello silvastang. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Can't say I am specifically familiar with that brand and model of appliance. Based upon the limited information provided and the description of the problem, a few assumptions can be offered as to possible causes.

There is or could be a lock out device installed on the appliance as a safety device to prevent gas flow in the event of some type of failure.

Another is a possible flame relighting device that relights the burner flame should it go out for some reason.

Yet another possible cause might be an electronic time setting on the control panel maybe???

Guessing here, since I am not exactly sure of an exact cause and only based upon information provided but some possibilities you might check and/or consider as possible causes.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be also. They will need the make, model an serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

"Be sure the electrical power and the gas supply to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever the appliance is moved and/or a repair includes any connection of a gas part."
