Question about Amana ARGS7650SS Gas Kitchen Range
The orifice is basically a small nut with a very small hole in it. This small hole lets all the gas into the grill. If it is blocked or has leakage in any way (dirt, cobwebs, spiders, etc.) it must be cleaned out. To access the orifice you must unscrew the gas valve from the burner. On models with an igniter, you must first remove the four screws holding the control panel on before you can unscrew the gas valve. Once you have access to the gas valve, remove the regulator hose. It's a good idea to use two wrenches to do this. Grasp the flat part of the gas valve with one wrench and hold it tightly. With the other wrench, remove the regulator hose. Then, loosen the flat lock nut located at the end of the valve next to the air shutter. Once loosened, you can unscrew the entire gas valve from the neck of the burner. (The air shutter and bug screen will also come off when you unscrew the gas valve.) With an adjustable wrench, unscrew the orifice from the gas valve and hold it up in the air to view any possible obstructions. Run a broom straw or some other small rod through the orifice to make sure it is clean. BE CAREFUL not to do anything to make the hole in the orifice bigger.
