Does model XFG371LVQ Whirlpool stove have air adjustment for top burners?

I have a 2009 whirlpool model XFG371LVQ stove I cannot find an air adjustment for the top burners...The flame is orange, I removed the screws holding down tge burner and cleaned everthing there, It helped a little but I still think the burners are not getting enough air to them...The flames seem pretty high, but the repair dude turned the simmer down so that is good just needs more air to blue up the flame....

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 .

SOURCE: whirlpool stove top- two problems. 1) burner is

If all other burners working as they should, I'd check that bad one for partially plugged orifice. Try poking a small piece of wire through orifice hole to clean it. As far as igniter goes, and they are all connected to one source for spark, and separate wires run to each, make sure there is no breaks in small wire, as well as check that little ceramic igniter has a clean tip, if not clean with nail file or sand paper, and make sure it is same position at burner as others, as in close enough for spark to arc across to burner. if still no spark, try swapping wire with another, if it works, change wire, if not replace little ceramic piece at burner.

How do I adjust the flame on a MGC5430 gas cooktop? Flames are too yellow and cause black soot on bottom of pans. Doesn't seem to have an air shutter adjustment


Is this unit set up for natural gas or propane? New stoves usually come with ORIFACES for both gasses. They would install between the on/off knob and the burner tube under the stove top. They may be tapped to the under burner area of your stove. If you lift your top stove cover you may find them. If you don't find them, you may need to purchase the correct applications for your stove. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Control knob doesnt adjust flame height?


Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

LP gas stove top . burners want turn down to low. Only medium and high flame work on burners.


Has this just recently happened? Check the knobs aren't cracked sometimes the brass spindle inside the knob is not gripping to turn it right down, also check your l p gas pressure it should be 2.75 kpa.
if the flames are big and yellow it's getting too much gas, not enough air.

Fame to low on my whirlpool stove


You mean the flame is low. You need to clean the burner jet hole orifice and also check if their is a gas pressure regulator which you can adjust the pressure a lithe more higher.
