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?

How do you adjust the flame

You don't need to adjust the flame you need to clean the burners out with a burner brush-make sure and get all the little slots and everything-the burners can actually be taken out sort of like you take out a dresser drawer if you need to do that.
I usually just jam the brush thru the venture hole and go to town.

Remove the front panel to find where the gas injectors enter the burner tubes you will see they are cut away and have a screw holding an outer ring which is adjustable, open them up more to get more air in .

Left burner produces a normal blue flame, but the right burner produces a big yellow flame - how can I fix this?

Hi inomura...
Look at the left burner, pipe,air hole adjustment,etc because it is operating good.
You will see a difference to it compared to the on the right.
The right pipe, air hole, or the length the pipe that are iserted in the gas control valve is different from the left.
The yellow flame indicates that not enough air is getting to the flame getting to the right flame ignition point.
The left flame is nice and blue...normal, the right is yellow indicating that not enough air is getting to the flame ignition point...look to see if the air hole adjustment is different than the one on the left...there is something open more or less, improperly adjusted.
Once you have it adjusted properly the right flame will burn bright blue just as it does on the left.
Please take time to rate me

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 Thermador PRG304US. The far right burner

I am having the same problem. Have you found any solution?

Right stove top burners won't ignite

Your right side burners probably have small vertical lighting holes that are clogged where the pilot lights the burner. Use a sewing needle to poke each hole clean. While you're at it, poke clean the horizontal burner holes just to make sure they are not clogged either. Are there also little tunnels from the burners to each pilot flame? Make sure those are clean inside and attached properly on each end. The pilot flame should be approx 3/8" tall. Compare the working pilot flame to the non-working pilot flames and adjust as necessary. Each pilot has a small aluminum tubing running to it, the adjustment screw will be on this tube. You'll just need a small flat head screw driver to turn it counter-clockwise to increase flame. Hope this helps. Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Douglas

Middle burner looks ok but has huge yellow flame

Sounds to me like the new burner that was put on, has the wrong gas orifice in it. Possibly a nat gas orifice instead of a propane orifice. If it's a propane grill, take it to your local propane co and have them look at it. Also, sometimes just a spiderweb or dirt dobber nest in the burner's venturi tube can cause that kind of problem. Blow it out with an air compressor and see if that's the problem.
