Question about GE Cooktops
We have been getting orange topped flames on our GE gas cooktop JGP389 The gas company agent said he thought it was too high a gas pressure and adjusted the pressure coming into the stovetop which helped for awhile, but now we intermittently get orange flame again. Agent also said it could be a regulatory. What can we do? And if we need help, how do we find someone qualified?

SOURCE: gas cook top
Most of the time when I come out for a service call with this problem, it is usually because the burner cap is not seated properly on the base. Look at the burner and make sure there are no uneven gaps. Most of the time you will have to rotate the burner cap till a notch or pin "seats" into place. Most burner caps just sit on the bases, and so they get knocked off or moved when the cooktop is cleaned or installed. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Pilot Flame is too high.
You will only need to purge air from the supply if this is newly installed or if you have recently disconnected / reconnected the main gas supply for some reason. Otherwise, you can just skip that step.
If you do need to purge the system do the following:
MAKE SURE THE ROOM IS WELL VENTED TO OUTSIDE
REMOVE ALL SOURCES OF POSSIBLE IGNITION
Fully open the largest burner and allow to run until gas is smelt.
There is no way to say exactly how long it needs to be open as this very much depends on the length of pipework feeding the appliance, but in a typical domestic installation, this shouldn't be more than about 5-10 seconds.
Hope this helps,
