If you are sure that it is the regulator you should have it relaced by a qualified tech. You have to remember that you are working with natural gas I assume and that safety come first. You do not want to have a fire for a problem that could be avoided.

Why did broiler stop working?

You have not shared where you live, and what gas you are using, but it sounds like you are either not getting the gas pressure you need, or you have sediment "dirt" plugging up your gas regulator orifice.
By any means , you need professional help, as gas problems are not for the do-it-your-selfer.
Best advice is leave stove alone until it is fixed.
God bless your efforts.

Why won't the broiler flame on my kenmore gas stove adjust?

you may have to replace the orifice with a smaller one. Follow the gas tube from the broiler to see if it runs thru the same regulator. Some units use a pressure regulated gas valve.

You should have a pressure regulator between your stove and your propane bottle. It's probably delivering too much propane at too high of a pressure to the stove.. If you don't have a regulator, THAT would be your problem. A regulator set to too high a pressure makes flame too high and flame may even try to blow itself out. I've remedied this by taking a small cover off the center of the regulator and adjusting a screw.. (Not all regulators can be adjusted.) If adjusting isn't possible, I'd suggest a new pressure regulator (for LPG). Note: A regulator for LPG is NOT set up the same as a regulator for natural gas.

Sounds like the pressure regulator on the stove is going bad. The pressure regulator is located in the back. Your gas supply line should connect directly to it.

Try this site for the conversion factor: . 1 Water Column [inch] = 0.0361 pound/square inch (PSI) (to a reasonable number of significant figures).

I hope this helps.

(However, your stove and tank must be very different than mine. We didn't need to adjust the inlet input for the max PSI, just make sure that the incoming pressure was in the standard range for LP. New stove installed last month after old one suffered a failure of the oven valve.)

Gas stove, burners work, oven doesn't

Is the igniter in the oven is working? (it should glow orange) If not, then you may have a broken or defective igniter. If it is working, but the burners don't light, then the appliance regulator on this model may have a small shutoff lever that turns off the gas to the oven. It may have been inadvertently closed. Follow where the gasline hooks up to the back of the stove. There will be a silver regulator about 3" x 4" size that regulates the gas pressure. On the outside of it, is a small lever. Flip it and see if that solves the problem. If you need more assistance, leave another comment and we'll trouble shoot further. Douglas

Just bought a Crosley stove. Burners will not light up.

Please remove the Gas Pressure Regulator and test it on another Gas Device (even a gas lamp). Then the next step would be starting investigating the Flint (lighter device) Reply if the regulator is confirmed to be working well - to continue with the testing of the flint

Gas stove burners will not light on click

Crack the line and see if you are getting gas to the stove first of all. If you are then the pressure regulator is either not set right or bad. Lots of times they do go bad if they sit up a while and no one bothered to cap off the regulator.
