It sounds as though you have soem nice, well sealed cabinets and a good installation on your cooktop. When you open the drawer. it creates a momentary vacuum that sucks the oxygen away from the cooktop, as the bottom of these are not airtight. The only thing you can do is to open the drawer more slowly or have a vent of some sort installed in the back of the cabinet to let air in as you open the drawers, so it does not suck it from the top.There really isnt anythig wrong per say, it something that happens with most gas cooktops with drawers/ doors below them. Hope this is helpful.

How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven


  • How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven??

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

    I have a whirlpool range rf263lxtq the oven stays consent on what is wrong with it


    Oven clicks as if it is relighting almost constantly.

    · Old electric range ovens use a coil heating element called a resistive coil.
    This is nothing more than an electrical wire encased in a sheath. They have flat black coils over rounded burner drip bowls that catch your drips and spills.
    · The newer glass-ceramic cook top style element produces heat that radiates through the glass top to the cookware above.
    · Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
    · Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. GAS OVENS 1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).

    2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).

    3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
    spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

    Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

    If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

    There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.
    ELECTRIC OVENS:

    CHECK THE OVEN RELAY CONTROL BOARD Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

    The sensor on the burner is not sensing the flame. It could be the sensor itself or its' controller. You need to call for service.

    Replace igniter part # 1990 in oven of model #3627332192


    Hi,

    It's usually pretty simple. Start by turning power off to the oven - unplug it or disconnect power at the circuit breaker. Open oven door, remove all racks, then remove oven floor panel (it might be secured with two bolts or clips on the back side). Remove the flame spreader (one nut). Now you have the oven burner and igniter exposed. If the new plug differs from the old, cut off the plug and use ceramic wire nuts (should be supplied with igniter) to connect the wires. Don't shake the igniter - the coil is very fragile. Once the igniter is replaced make sure the wires are connected securely. Put everything back the way it was and test the oven.

    Below are the two most popular oven igniters: flat bar igniter and round igniter.

    Flat igniter - this is by far the most commonly used oven igniter. Includes all necessary pieces to replace longer ceramics. Size: 3-3/4" long. Fits Maytag, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Magic Chef, Tappan, Jenn Air, GE (flat bar only), Sears Kenmore (flat bar only), even some Thermador cooktops and Viking ovens. - ff693fe.jpeg

    I have a Thermador SGCS204R cooktop. The rear


    Well first you need to verify that it is getting proper gas pressure to that burner. Try lighting the burner manually with a match. Does the burner look normal? If the burner flame is really small then you will need to remove the burner head and check the orfice for a restriction. If it looks normal then it probably is a weak spark from the igniter, igniter electrode is out of position, or burner head has dirty ports at electrode causing no ignition. Inspect the burner head. If it is removable then take it off and clean out the burner ports(eyes) with a sewing needle. If it is not easily removable then try doing this while it is still installed on the range. Also try using a wire brush on the electrode to clean any carbon/debris build-up casuing a weak spark. You can also try bending the electrode slightly with a flatblade screwdriver(be careful don't break the elctrode) away from the burner creating a larger spark.

    Large yellow flame, not cooking food thoroughly


    I think ill give it a try for you. The gas lines come in thru you cutoff valve then thru you gas valve and on to the burner. right before the burner you will see a bell shape fitting. The gas line is in the center of the fitting and there will be some opening around this fitting That fitting has dust clogging it up. This is where the gas mixes with the air Turn your oven off and blow this fitting out.

    We had the same problem on a Thermador cooktop with the same RI-302 ignitor. Turns out it was one of the switches that sits on top of the gas valves. These switches cause the ignotor to fire when the valve is turned. In our case, one of the switches had malfunctioned and was "always on" causing the ignitor to continuously fire.
