Specs for burners for Amana AGS761W

I see the BTU output of the new ranges as high as 16,000, usually with a simmer burner at 5K and two burners at 92K or 95K. I'm wondering how high the BTU output is for my range. I've always been disappointed in how long it takes to use me burners to cook. They were listed as ''energy saving'' but if it takes twice as long to cook, how does that save energy?

That maybe that it's on the propane settings fron the factory on the regulator, and it's running on natural gas.Or if you see that the burners go smaller and smaller as you turn one burner after the other. if that replace the regulator. you can also get bigger flames when you make the orifises bigger. that's what supplies gas to the burners.

Igniter switch on top burner will not shut off


try thoroughly cleaning the burners, particularly the holes in the ring that the gas come through. The gas come through to heat the ignitor so that the ignitor knows to stop trying to light the burner ; if the holes are clogged the ignitor doesn't heat.
The burner is easily disassembled from the top by removing a thin bolt, and you can clear the holes with a paper clip.

GE gas range on propane, using propane jets, the burner regulator knob has little effect on heat output. Is this a gas burner valve issue?


You also need to set the regulator to LP. The symptom described is an indication that the regulator is still set to natural gas. The manual should tell you how. As I remember, there is a cap on top of the regulator that is removed to allow access to a retainer that needs to be turned over so the "LP" is facing up. Check your manual or look it up online

How can i adjust the burners to not be so hot? simmer is actually medium high rather than simmer


The switch itself is what cycles the burner to come on/off.
If it is acting up, you,ll need to replace the switch that controls the burner.

Dcs 48" gas range igniter comes back when set on low/simmer


This is not a solution but something to think about for troubleshooting.
On the DCS there are two ports that feed gas to the burner.
One for high flame and one for simmer.
On the DCS if the flame is snuffed out on simmer it will automatically reignite.
So if the igniter will not shut off while on simmer, the sensor is bad and is trying to reignite the burner.

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.
