Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range
VGSO166 36" VIKING Gas Oven:
Just installed a single VGSO 166. We are on LP (Propane) tank gas. We have numerous other gas appliances in the home....the WC for the LP gas (whole house regulator) is adjusted properly (around 11").
The problem: The flames which arrise from the burner tubes are almost 4" long. The flames are yellow tipped even at max air shutter (yes, worse with closed shutter) and indicate excessive gas flow/pressure and/or insufficient air. There is (already) some sooting after just a few seconds of run-time.
Any clues? This unit has an internal regulator. The orifices are extremely difficult to turn, so we are not very motivated to unscrew/loosen them to verify that the adjustment was correct. One orifice DID tighten a little bit more--this seemed to improve the flame on the that burner tube.
Anyone ever worked on one of these? (below is the background on the installation)
Per the instructions from Viking (not very clear) the regulator cap was 'flipped' and the spring (under the reg. cap) was left in place. The force required to secure (bayonet lock) the reg. cap was higher than expected. Also per instructions, the 2 main gas burner (oven) orifices were adjusted (per the manual; counterclockwise--we interpreted this to mean 'screw the orifices
