SOURCE: Gas oven igniting but not heating up

Is orifice that gas flows thru into burner clogged/restricted? IF not, then Ignitor may be bad; I would replace it. If still same issue then gas valve is bad. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it. Flame height does not change regardless of your setting- it's either on or off; thermostat is not like an accelerator. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

SOURCE: have a comfort glow heater ventless natural gas.

Look for a small hole or two in the part the pilot flame comes out of. These may be partly blocked. They allow air to mix with the gas for the pilot.

How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven


  • How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven??

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

    Gas odor and turns my pans black


    Sometimes theres too much air in the line. A better connection from tank to stove may help, or your running low on propane. Try cleaning the burners with an old toothbrush removing built up sut. Your flame should burn blue, not yellow. Hope it helps!

    Gas oven flame yellow not blue like grill and hob rings.Flame is floppy and laboured and doesn't shoot up when turned up,could this be the thermostat Regards F Daley


    Normally not the thermostat. Blue flames signify that the gas is burning clean, a yellow flame signify that some contaminate is burning with the gas. I would guess that something has leaked onto the burner or you have some corrosion build up. Try taking it out and giving it a good cleaning with a soft bristled brush and see if that is any better.

    Kenmore oven doesnt bake


    Can I assume that you determined that the bottom burner flame is burning properly? To do this, remove the oven bottom insert. The flames should have approximately 1" of blue cone and should burn with no yellowing tip, if on natural gas. (A small yellow tip on the end of the outer cone is normal with most LP gas.) The flmaes should not lift off the burner ports. If the flame is lifting, gradually reduce the air shutter until the flame stabilizes.

    Go to the following website for your particular manual.

    Oven burner flame is low


    0000000.jpgOn top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL
