Bypass valve adjustment on thermadore sgsx365cb/01

I have adjusted the two right hand burners and the middle wok burner successfully, and cut a little hole in plastic that is protecting the adjustment screw so that I can get to it. But just to make sure I tested the other burners to see if they lit properly, which they did. So I tested the left two burners without any adjustment, and they seem to be fine! Is this something to do with the x-lo simmer feature, or should I adjust them any way. The flame doesn't have yellow tips, is this the only criteria for proper adjustment?

Burners output seems "weak", is there a valve that regulate gas flow and if so can it be adjusted?


Yes it can be . Contact your utility company. They can make the adjustment. They have a vested interest and a responsibility in this .

I have a 4 burner elite, 9 years old. How do I adjust the flame? The knobs do very little. The flame is way to hot. Is there an adjustment in the valve?


Are the knobs just turning on their shafts? Or are the knobs and shafts turning? Hopefully, it the first thing, because it is repairable by replacing the knobs. Which can be ordered directly from BBQ's Galore.

It that's not the case, then ALL of the burner valves will need to be replaced. As, there is no adjustment. replacing all he burner valves is not an easy task. It's similar to rebuilding the head of the grill. If it's as old as you say, you'd probably be better off replacing the whole grill with a newer model.

Hi I have purchased a 2nd hand Colman 431 stove . The instruction Manual wasn't with it. Looking for instructions Please. Hope you can help. Rob Tyler Toronto


I am not sure what to tell you, other than go to Colman's website for a manual. That will at least give you a parts list if you ever need it. But, these stoves are generally solid and reliable, with few things to know about.

What I do to operate:
  1. Set up stove: lid up and wings out, tank fully pumped (works best if no more than about 2/3 to 3/4 full) and installed with nozzle firmly into the socket above the right burner.
  2. Little lever on left of valve assembly--turn upward. Open valve a little bit to get fuel flowing to burner. Give it just a few seconds then light burner with match or lighter (watch your fingers!). It should light off pretty readily.
  3. Open valve a fair bit (anti-clockwise) and let it burn for up to a minute until the flame changes from yellow to mostly blue, and mostly around the burner and not up in the air. Turn little lever on left of valve downward.
  4. Re-pump tank to maintain pressure.
  5. Use valve knob to adjust flame intensity, and cook away.
  6. To use second burner, the key thing os to remember that it draws from the same valve, so when it is on the main burner goes down a bit.
  7. The knob for the 2nd (left) burner is a little flip-out on the left end of the stove. Open slightly, and light the burner. Only do this after the main (right) burner is burning blue.
  8. Use the main valve (on the tank) to adjut the total fuel flow, and the little handle for the left burner to adjust how much of the total flow goes to the left side. (You cannot burn the left without the right being on.)
  9. Pump as required to maintain pressure.
  10. The only real "part" that you might have to strip or replace is the "generator" which is the tube from the valve across the top of the right burner. The liquid fuel is vaporized in there, and is what needs to get warmed up when you start.

I have a 6 burner Vulcan stove with a bad oven pilot light.


Hi! I have the same problem with one of my burners (I have a morice range). I changed the thermocouple, but it didn´t help. I contacted Morice in France and was told that the problem most sertainly was the coil inside the gasvalve. I don´t know if it possible to dismantle the ovengasvalve to check the coil. As for a burner valve, one should open the valve at the end were the gas goes out to the burner to locate this coil. Best of luck Lars?ui=2&ik=305879aaef&view=att&th=1244dff9c340942f&attid=0.1&disp=thd&zw

Thermador rdss30rs xlo burners don't light and right side burners don't light either. can light right side with lighter. while burners are on igniter spark continously.


IF THE BURNERS DO NOT IGNITE
• Are the burner caps properly aligned and seated in the burner bases?
• Are the burner ports clogged?
• Is a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker tripped?
• Is the manual shut-off valve closed, preventing the flow of gas?

Top right burner on hotpoint gas range doesn't light


there is a spark ignition in the middle between the front and back burners....one for the left side and one on the right side. When it was cleaned i bet that the spark ignitor was slightly bent towards the front burner...now the gap is too big to fire the rear burner...the ignitor is very similar as the spark made in those push down lighters. so its safe to play around and adjust them as needed to make them work...Go ahead and take it apart and tinker with adjusting it...until you get both front and rear burners running again the way it was before.( peek at the otherside as a reference and try to make it match)
I hope this helps you out a little bit 8-)

Eye won't light - clicks when turned on but no gas is coming out on one of the five eyes.


Hold a match to the burner in question and see if it lights.
That will verify if it is a valve problem or a ignitor problem.
If it lites with a match the burner electrode needs cleaning or repair or adjustment.

LP conversion for Thermador 4 burner range top


I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.
