Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a Whirlpool SF385PEY gas range that is 12 years old. Recently, there seems to be a problem with gas flow. When I light the oven, and it is heating up past about 240 degrees, the range top burners will get weak flow and either will not light or go out if they were lit. Then, occasionally, the oven will quit working. If I don't run the oven, there is glow to the stove top, but it doesn't seem as strong as it used to.
The supply line looks strong and intact. The electronic ignitors seem to function well.
From what you've described and what I understand; the only part that requlates the gas flow "low or intermitten gas flow/pressure" is the "gas pressure regulator" located where the incoming gas flex-line connects directly.
The pressure regulator is about 3" x 3" metal square blockish' type device and can be replaced fairly easy. However, if and when replacing the pressure regulator, ensure you are using the proper gas - yellow teflyon tape of pipe dope paste to thread in the new part.
What is the model number of the range? (free standing - gas pilot only)
(The above suggestion is assuming you have the proper gas supply pressure to your home/range)
