SOURCE: burner flame adjustment

there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.

SOURCE: burners with yellow tipped flames

are you using propane or natural gas?if propane you need to clean the burner real good.propane burns very dirty and the soot clogs the burner.if natural gas is used look on the end of the burner,youll see an air shutter all you do is turn the shutter to increase or decrease the air flow.

SOURCE: flame to high

Hi, To lower the size of the flame, turn the orfice on top of the gas valve in the oven. You will need a 1/2" wrench and need to turn the orfice clockwise to lower the flame.
please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Flame on main hob of range master 110 is yellow and smelly also black sooty deposit left on jets


Ream out all the orifices and air venturi holes on the burner, adjust the air-ahutter, the air-shutter is usually nearer the valve/knob than to the burner. Yellow flame is an imbalance of fuel to oxygen and is creating Carbon Monoxide and not burning cleanly... this is the same problem that can make a furnace deadly. Blue flame=neutral flame.

How to adjust oven burners to lower it and to turn up top burners


Really you should get a registered gas fitter to do this especially with the oven.

There is a small set screw behind the plate that covers the control knobs. Light the burner, turn the knob to its lowest setting and then use the adjusting screw to set the minimum flame height. The flame must be robust enough that it can't blow out when you open a door or window and create a draught.

How do I adjust the flame in my gas oven


You have to be careful when adjusting the flame because you can cause carbon monoxide issues. There are two adjustments. the orifice hood and the air shutter. the orifice hood when turned will adjust the flame amount and the air shutter will adjust the burning of the gas. the hood will be on the line feeding the burner usually on them safety valve and should be a 1/2 inch nut. The air shutter is the door like opening on the burner tube itself. Your flame should be a nice blue cone without any yellow and should not blow and walk off the burner.

I have a Kitchenaide model KGSS907SBL01 gas range. Everything works fine except that we find that the amount of heat generated is disappointing. This seems to come from the fact that the top of the grill...


Hello,
It would seem like reasonable thing to do.However the adjustment is typically for the low setting so you can adjust just the small flame just enough to simmer a pot without the flame going out from being so low its susuptable to going out on the low setting, also it so you can adjust the flame smaller so on low it isnt too high,causing it will boil when you intend to only simmer a dish your cooking. A question;is it all burners and have they always been that way?

The oval burner has only very low flame, even when set on high


Every one of these ranges that I have seen with the oval style burner on them have a smaller flame then the normal round burners. And there is very little difference between the low and high settings. It sounds like what you are experiencing is normal. What the GE repairman was adjusting is called the "simmer stop". There is a small flat head screw inside the burner stem. By turning this screw you can adjust the size of the burner on the low position of the burner knob. This should be adjusted to where the burner still stays on when the knob is at the lowest setting. I do not think that you need the burner repaired. From my experience they are all like that.

Kenmore twin burner.. orange flames


A <i>temporary</i> orange flame from your gas stove can also occur at peak usage times. An increase in local demand can cause a decrease in pressure in the natural gas line. If all of your gas appliances are in combustion simultaneously, this may also cause a drop in pressure, especially in older houses. If the problem persists, it is likely a dirty/clogged burner or the stove needs servicing. In general, an orange flame (on a gas combustion appliance) means incomplete combustion and carbon monoxide production.

Simmer is to hot


I am hesitant about answering your question because if the flame is adjusted incorrectly it could be dangerous.
Remove the knob and look inside the stem of the gas valve. You will see a very small adjustment screw. This is where you adjust the flame for the burner.
What I usually do is light the burner and turn it to the lowest setting. Hold the stem in this position and turn the screw. They are usuall kind of stiff to turn.
You want to adjust the flame so that it just comes to the top of the burner cap at the low setting.
This is the important part!!!
When you have got the flame adjusted, put the knob on and turn the flame to high. Quickly turn it from high to low, if the flame goes out, adjust it higher. Repeat this test until you can turn it from high to low quickly and it stay lit.
Also important to remember. When turning the screw, a little turn goes a long way.
Post back if you have any questions.
