Which is the lower setting on Thurcroft calor gas stove


I am not familiar with this stove but I think you could turn on the stove and look at the flame while you turn the knob to see which way is high or low.

I've used you guys once before - right the first time so trying again for a different problem. I've got a Frigidaire glass-top electric range (model PLEF398CCD) and 2 of the four burners stay on...


Hello,
Thanks for using Fixya once again we appriciate it!

The problem with your stove is going to be with the infinate switch(what ya are calling knob) for the burners that giving ya trouble are shorted and the contacts inside of it are welded so they permanantly are stuck on the HIGH setting. To repair that the switches for the affected burners would need to be replaced.

The part number for those switches is 316095503 they could be purchased at your local appliance partstore or online at;

My right front burner does not work on low. it does not turn on until you turn the knob to about the medium setting


many burners have safety mechanism that shuts the flow of gas when it is cold. it is there to prevent the flow of gas in the case when the fire was put out by wind or split of water.
you didn't mention if after the fire is lighted, are you able to turn the knob back to low.

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.

Temp on oven is not correct


Good Evening.


I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.


You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary

Gas range top burners too hot


Get the installation manual for your range, and find the part on adjusting the low heat for the burners. On my Whirlpool, I found there is an adjustment screw inside the control knob shaft of each burner. The manual says turn the burner on low, remove the knob, then turn this screw until the flames are 1/4" high. Super-easy, it took me 5 minutes to do. I am sure all ranges have similar adjustments, might be in different locations - check the manual.
