Proper air velocity over the burner is critical on a direct fired gas unit. If the air velocity is not within
specifications, the unit will not operate efficiently, can produce excess carbon monoxide (CO) or other gases, and may have sporadic shutdowns. Proper air velocity is determined by measuring the static pressure drop across the burner.
To measure the static pressure drop, the fan should be running and be discharging 70° air. Using an incline manometer or equivalent, insert one sensor into the entering air access opening (plugged test port) and the other on the downstream side, through the view port (see page 12 for locations). The proper static pressure reading should be from .625 in. to .675 in.
If this reading is higher or lower and the air quantity (cfm) delivered to the building is acceptable, then the burner baffles will need to be adjusted (see diagram).
Open the burner access door. Using a wrench loosen the 4 screws to adjust the baffles. To increase the static pressure loss, decrease the opening size and to decrease the loss, increase the opening size. The top and bottom baffles should be of equal distance from the burner. Tighten the baffle fasteners, replace the door, turn unit on, and recheck the loss. This process may need to be repeated
until the proper pressure reading is attained.
This adjustment will change the air quantity delivered by the unit and therefore should be rechecked.

Flames are mostly yellow, vent black soot


There is a flame adjust ring on each burner where the gas exits the inlet nozzle. Before adjusting these, be sure all other gas appliances are working ok (water heater, etc.) . If they are then focus on the pressure regulator on the stove itself. That is the part that the gas line from the wall connects to on the stove. It is most likely bad. If not then go back to each burner , loosen the screw that locks the adjustment ring, turn the burner on and move the ring back to allow more air to mix with the gas so the tips of the flame just turns from orange to blue. Tighten the screw and move to the next burner that needs adjustment.

Own a KitchenAid gas range superba, how do i clean the burner, one of my front burners the gas flow is very low, the stove has the glass/ceramic top with no wells & no way to get to the burners...only...


You'll need certified stove technician to service you kitchen Aid range. You have low gas flow on one of the burner. The manual gas control valve behind the knob needs to removed and cleaned. If you have one cleaned then have technician clear all four of these manual gas valves. While he cleaning the valve have do a complete check up of you Kitchen Aid range. Dangerous for the home owners to do this procedure because flowing natural gas or propane. In a lot the states you'll need to be certified by the state to work with natural gas, gas stove, ovens, gas home heating units, etc. It differentially a no,no here.

It is not the burners, it is gas flow valves for the burners. Most of the burner are made of aluminum and I wouldn't use any harsh cleaners of them. Check with Kitchen Aid and ask them what is recommend for cleaning the burners. Also the top of the range isn't ceramic but porcelain, it glass that has been melt to the top hood of the range. Don't use scratch pads, steel wool or any thing that will mare the Periclean surface of your stove.

If you can get the aluminum burner out to clean them then do so. GB you Allison and I wish you many year cooking on your Kitchen Aid range. stewbison

Installed stove, no flames on burners?


It may still have air in the system, turn on one burner on and allow the gas to flow with a lighter in the path of the gas see if the gas lights of at least explodes I mean until it goes Poof, once it does that if it does not light then pull the top off the stove and adjust the vents on the pipes to focus the flames and how much air is blended in with the gas, also turn the burner so that the holes are half way open, I am not sue about your stove but most have an adjustment by turning the burner 1/4 of a turn to change the flame characteristics. if this does not help post here and I will see what else I can find out on your stove. I need the modle of the stove and the regulator number where the gas hooks up.

Jenn-Air JGR8855BDS Gas to propane conversion


propane is higher pressure than natural gas, there should be some orifices on the stove for the top burners, some have them near the top in a metal clip, some have them in a lower location, usually you can see them from the back of the stove. the oven and broiler may only need "tightened down", and the air blend will probably need adjusting for "flame color", you don't want yellow flame tips, good luck!
