How do I adjust the flame on a Viking DGCU-165-5BSB Gas cooktop

Hi, I have a Viking DGCU-165-5BSB cook top using LP gas. The flame has large yellow tips. How do I adjust it to get a nice blue flame?

Thanks,

- Russ

SOURCE: Only 1 of 5 burners is working on my Viking electric cooktop

By only 1 burner working, I take you mean only 1 ignites, then it sounds as though you have an issue with the spark module being defective. There is usually an access panel on the bottom of the unit, although not on all of them. Remember to disconnect from the electric.

SOURCE: Viking Designer Series gas cooktop not cleaning well

I'm sorry to say that there is not a wonder solution for this. You try laying a damp cloth on the aluminum part to try and allow the moisture to soak in the clean it off.
Don't use anything abrasive as the aluminum will scratch.

Remove the knob and using a tester turn the screw inside to increase or decrease the flame.

SOURCE: viking gas cooktop vgsu161-6b sparks continuously.

The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.

Converted a ge gas to lp. the oven and broiler has too much flame


You must close the gas valve orifice. There is a gas valve (silver or grey colored rectangular shaped piece which feeds the burner(s)) that has a brass or gold-colored hex nut. This nut (1/2 inch) needs to be tighten down clockwise to the stop point. This will regulate the flame.

Viking pro gas range propane conversion


Sounds like your range is set up for the wrong kind of gas, or, in the case of LP, your installer failed to make the necessary adjustments once it was hooked up. First step is to insure that you have the proper range for type of gas you are using. If not, the orifices for all surface and oven burners will have to be changed out. That should be done by a qualified service technician.

Your flame is perfect if it's just the very tip that is yellow or white. All burners should be adjusted this way, on highest flame.
