Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

I'm using natural gas. It was working fine but now the high speed burner is sooting the burner and the pots and pans occasionally. the flame is nice and blue and when it fails it seems to be uneven and orange. I removed the burner, cleaned and checked the jet and it all looks like new. None of the other burners are causing a problem and the oven is working fine. The fact that it is intermittent has got me baffled. Could the valve cause this problem, I don't know what is left.

    There isn't any regulator. I'm surprised that it is so intermittent. It works for several days no problem and then it starts to carbon up. What goes bad in the valve to do this?

    Thanks for your help.

If you have a pressure regulator coming off the main gas line to the unit make sure the vent isnt clogged.its a little nut on top of the regulator,unsrew it and clean it up with w-40.try this and see what happens.if no improvment the gas valve is faulty.

    the seat in the valve gets worn,there may be a kit to rebuild it but its easier to replace the valve.i would agree with reel337 but it wouldnt be intermittent like you said.i belive its the valve.

There is too much air in the mixture, close the air shutter on the burner a little.

How tp clean black soot off bottom of turkey pot


If you are cooking with propane or natural gas, you may need a new regulator for your range, the black soot is most likely too much gas being used to make the flame. But, as for the soot on the bottom of your pans, try letting the pan soak in a mixture of baking soda and water, then attack it with a brillo pad. Hope this helps!

You don't have the right Gas to Air ratio..... Not enough air to the burners or you are running to low of gas pressure for propane... Propane takes a smaller orfice or operate than Natural Gas.....
You should have 10" of WC for Propane operation..
You will need a manometer to check it.
The flame should be a blue color with no yellow in it. There should be air shutters right at the orfice to each burners. You will have to play with the adjustment to get the best blue flame with no yellow in the flame.... Hope this helps.....

Soot deposits from my brand new downdraft jenn-air gas cooktop


Is this on LP or Natural gas? If LP was it converted to LP? In any event,The air shutter must be adjusted on the gas burner tube. You need more air. The valve orifice may also need adjusting.

Flames are extremely uneven and high


okay, DO NOT USE THIS STOVE ON LP GAS.

It's not intended to be used with LP gas, because LP gas requires a smaller orifice than natural gas. Call your propane supplier IMMEDIATELY...DO NOT USE THIS STOVE UNTIL IT IS CONVERTED TO LP GAS (if it's even possible)...this is extremely dangerous and you could hurt yourself if you continue to use LP gas on a stove that was designed to run on natural gas.

Side burner on Jennaire grill


Hello
The soot stains come from the air mixture, that will show too much yellow flame tips, just adjust the air intake, too have an idea how much to adjust it, and also it wouldn't hurt to clean the flames holes by sticking a pin. Alos make sure you have the right fittings converters. It's the grill LP Gas or Natural?

Are you using natural gas or propane (LP)? It sounds like you may need to change the orifice size on the gas lines going to each burner. If you are using LP and have the orifice set for Natural gas, the flames will burn higher and hotter, causing heavy soot. Under each burner, there should be a small nut with a hole in the center at the end of the gas line. The hole for Natural gas has a slightly larger diameter than one for LP. Your stove should have come with extra orifices as part of a conversion kit. Could this be the case? There's also another orifice in the main gas regulator in the back of the stove. Have you checked to see if the orifice for the regulator is set correctly? Does the oven burn hotter than usual with heavy soot, too? If you could please answer these questions first, I can give you better advice. Let me know...
