Question about Dacor Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I would like a higher BTU gas range and is shopping around for new range.

I tested by boiling 2Q of water bringing temp from 66 to 166 and this took 8 minutes. I estimated that the BTU is 8000 and just wanted to confirm if this is correct. I would like a higher BTU gas range and is shopping around for new range.

Most range manufacturers give you the but rating for there burners. I have an electric range that has a "fast boil" burner. It can bring a gallon of water to a full boil in about 10-12 minutes. I also have a commercial gas (propane) range. Its burners are rated around 33,000 btu

SOURCE: Vulcan Range that wasn't heating.

The half inch tubing should be adequate under most circumstances. However, you may run into volume issues while using the oven and a few burners at the same time. If it bothers you, replace it. The door should be flush (or close to it) on the sides and the top. If you have an air gap, check the hinges.

SOURCE: Low Heat from GE XL44 gas range

you can increase the sides of the flames by opening the orifices, if not differences. make the orifices holes a bit bigger, you can have as big of a flame as you want. those orifices are at the connection of the burner with the valve that supplies gas to the burners.

Find you a GASMAN to resize your orifices. He will have special drill bits to do so. If I were there I could do it for you.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Gas range. The major stove top

This could be a problem with the gas regulator, gas supply pressure or the burners need to be cleaned. Here are the cleaning instructions for the burners. If you are still having problems with the burners I would recommend having the gas pressure & regulator checked.

Can my 1999 Cadillac Seville concourse overheat by mixing too much water with antifreeze??


Theoretically yes. Antifreeze has a higher heat capacity than water. Basically, a liter of antifreeze can hold more heat than a liter of water. I dont think it would be enough to cause an overheat though

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.

Have a 2001 ram 2500 v8. Can't get heat in cab above 95. Changed leaking radiator over summer. Since than have changed thermostat, flushed heater core and changed hoses. Engine temp won't go above175...


did you replace the thermostat with a brand new unit . If so pull it out and check it in water with a thermometer . Suspend the unit in water to the mounting plate and bring the water to the boil . The flap should start opening at the lower reading set on the body and be fully opened at the higher reading . If the flap is partially open at cold then replace it as it is unserviceable to start with. Thermostats can be bought with at least 2 temperature temp ranges depending on the area of operation so get a higher opening reading one for your purposes.

My burner gets excessively hot very quickly is this normal?


Hi,

That right front burner is an extremely hot burner by design. It is sold as a quick power burner. The rating on it is 12,000 btu's meaning it could easily boil a pot of soup in that time.

Here is a quote from the owners manual for your range

"There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking."

Use the back for slower smaller cooking and front for larger and quick heating.

I hope that helps.

Temperature fluctuates while flow remains constant.(within the pump cut in/out settings) Max temp obtainable 43c


This sounds like a common problem with tankless type water heaters. The modulating burner has a set Btu range it can operate within, a maximum and minimum. With very low flow rates and very low temperature rises, the burner has trouble maintaining a steady output temperature because the btu load drops below the heater's minimum input. Typically the machine will overheat the water beyond it's setpoint, the burner will cut out, and then re-ignite once the output temperature has dropped low enough.
The solution to stopping this behavior is to simply increase the water flow through the device (i.e. higher flowing fixture or larger pump). This type of problem is exaserbated with recirculation systems that bring a very high water temperature to the unit.
Higher end tankless brands have a lower minimum input btu and thus fewer problems with this.

Flame on gas hob not correct.


I'm not sure what you mean by a proper efficient flame. I just recently went through an experience I'll relate to you here. I purchased a GE Profile dual fuel range. I can get more specific if you'd like but here's the point. The highest burner on the range was rated at 17000 BTU's. A friend recommended the range to me and sang it's praises. I took delivery of my new toy and couldn't wait to get a pot on the stove to start cooking a long wait for pasta. Twenty minutes later I was finally seeing bubbles! I spilled the water out and measured 12 cups of water into the pasta pot at room temperature. That's three quarts of water. 20 minutes to see bubbles and never would it come to the expected "rolling boil". My experience has always been with electric ranges and I am new to gas but 20 minutes? Something had to be wrong, right? Wrong! Much research later I've found it is common for natural gas to LP conversion stoves to lose a good deal of their oumph when converted. GE as it turns out is one of the most notorious for a serious degredation in BTU output. After exploring GE's site I found that this same stove running under LP gas is rated(for the highest burner) at 11000 BTU's! No wonder I couldn't boil water! Back to the store it went and I am still in search of a stove that will meet my needs. Don't know if this will help you or if this is the same issue you are dealing with but maybe just maybe. Good luck!
