Question about Vulcan 36L Gas Kitchen Range
It takes forever to heat a pan of water. The flames on the burners are a soft mixture of blue and yellow - no intensity at all. An inspector was out from the gas company to check our meter this summer and, although he was not a technician, he looked at the burners and said, "That's not right." Could it be pressure? The wrong regulator (the range was purchased slightly used and we've always had this problem)? I saw a Vulcan in a church basement a while back and it was a blowtorch compared to ours. Help. Thanks.
First, you should make sure the unit is set up to run the type of gas you use. If you have natural gas and it is set up for lpg, or vice versa. If it is wrong, you can retrofit it by changing out the orifices. Other than that, check your pressure at the manifold that feeds the burners to see if it is adequate. A bad regulator could very easily cause this problem as well.
