If set to high, burners should remain on. If set to medium high let's say, they would be on for maybe 70 percent of the time, off for 30 percent of the time. If set to warm, they might be on only 10 percent of the time, off 90 percent. There is a high temp limiter which could turn a burner off. If you have a burner on high and are cooking on that burner and it goes off, the high temp limiter may be faulty. It is an integral part of the burner, and would require replacement of the offending burner. Burners are individually replaceable after lifting up the glass cook top.

I have a Kitchenaide model KGSS907SBL01 gas range. Everything works fine except that we find that the amount of heat generated is disappointing. This seems to come from the fact that the top of the grill...


Hello,
It would seem like reasonable thing to do.However the adjustment is typically for the low setting so you can adjust just the small flame just enough to simmer a pot without the flame going out from being so low its susuptable to going out on the low setting, also it so you can adjust the flame smaller so on low it isnt too high,causing it will boil when you intend to only simmer a dish your cooking. A question;is it all burners and have they always been that way?

I have a Lennox Whisper Heat that when a call for heat comes, the pilot lights as it should, then after about 30 seconds the blower fan comes on, then its about another minute before the burners light....


Yes it should go in this sequence, first exhaust fan, after establishing air flow you get a pilot, after signal from pilot is established you get main burners, then they have to reach a set temperature on the high limit and then the blower comes in. Now you have several over heat safety sensors one of them could be tripped check by powering the furnace down and see if they have a reset button on them, some do some do not. If not it should be the sensors closest to the heat exchanger and blower assembly use a volt ohm meter and check them should be normally open until temp is established then closed. This is easier done than it is to describe, now locate the high limit switch and bulb and see if it is open across the contacts it should be until it hits temp then it closes to start the blower. Hope this helps instead of confusing the hell out of you. Take your time locate the items then test.

Should the burners go off and on


yes this is totsly normal
they are really not burners, they are elements, and you dont really cook from the heat of the burner, on this design, you actually cook from the heat of the glass, so as the glass cools through convection, the element will cycle, on and off to ensure the glass maintains a temp +- 25 degrees to the set temp

hope this helps

New whirlpool range (smooth top) burners cycle on and off. Example.. turn on, 23 sec, off 28 sec, on 12 sec, on 11 sec off 30 sec, on 14 sec, etc. Impossible to cook properly


ok
i have been called out alot on this,,,,
believe it or not thats 100% normal
you are not cooking with those burners, you are actually cooking from the heat of the glass.
your "burner" element will cycle as needed to keep the glass your pan is sitting on at the temp you set
let it heat up, the glass will get hot quickly, GAS FAST as they say....
dont worry about the cycling put your pan on top and begin to cook,, it will work

Viking oven only one burner will light


http://www.vikingrange.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m20127_f20254.pdf
Go to this web site. It has a manual on Viking ovens.
Usually, when the set temp is reached, the flame will cycle down to what is called "Minimum Blaze". This is to put heat into the unit at the rate that it leaves the unit. It helps to hold temp rather than cycle off and on. It cycles high when temp goes below set and then cycles down when set temp is reached.

Grill doesn't reach max. temp when burners are on high


This is normal. Having the gas valve partially opened does not release the volume of gas necessary to bring the temp. on high.

Stovetop stays hot when burners are not on


Is it a glass top. If it is, glass will absorb the heat. It will cool off after some time. That is normal.

Ge true temp stove top burner wont stay on


dont know how old unit is or how familiar you arewiththe unit, but the burner will need to heat up and cycle off/on. no matter how high or low you set the setting it will heat to a specific temp and cycle off, if hte burner remained RED all the time the glass would crak( so dont go by appearnce of burner, the glass should dictate the temp
