SOURCE: Front right burner won't go on high, keeps continuous low flame only

Dear lejeunelm

Righteo then, this is a problem that will probably require you to send the appliance back to where you got it from as there is either a fault with a valve, the gas regulator, or a problem with the supply. Even if this fault is caused by an electronic regulator (controls the amount of gas that is pushed through the burning chamber, and to the temperature it heats (if your gas cooker has this), then it is SERIOUSLY ADVISABLE to get yourself a corgi approved gas engineer to look at this fault and fit the part. Obiously becuase gas is not only explosive, but also pretty poisonous either before or after combustion has occured.

Now id did mention that the fault could be associated with either the supply, regulator, valve or anything that controls the flow of gas, but the fault could also be caused by something as simple as the twist knobs on the front of the cooker unit. If the knob either becomes stuck, or is not in the correct position then obviously the gas settings will be wrong. Now behind this knob, there probably will be a flow valve, which will control the amount of gas being delivered to burn. Probably a good point of fact to get the valve checked too. Even more reason if you get a funny smell of gas that is being emitted, as this would indicate a leak either with the valve or elsewhere in the system (which causes pressure to drop and hence low amounts of gas being delivered to the combustion area).

I would suggest calling out an engineer to check your gas supply, and definitely take the coioker back to where you got it from. Although this may seem like drastic measures, it is not as drastic as the potentail risks to you and those around you if the problem is serious. (explosions, fires and poisonings are common with gas problems if they are serious enough). It is probably wise to also do this if you have an insurance premium on your house/ flat or place of residence.

Now there could be chance that you your good self are an engineer to some degree, or have experiance with gas fixtures and fittings, now if this is the case, then i would start by suggesting a trip online to http://www.google.com and then typing the manufacturer/ vendor model of your cooker into google with the words "service sheets" or "repair manual" or "repair instructions". Now this will give you a list of websites that will offer you the chance to get hold of the information that you require, however some of these sit6es may charge you for the technical data, and some even so expensive, that the cost of the sheets is outweighed by the cost of taking the unit/ getting a professional in to do the job for you.

Now lets say that you did do the job yourself, then you may need parts, and i reckon http://www.google.com yet again will be the best place for you to start searching for the parts. NOTE:::IF YOU DO ORDER ONLINE, CHECK THAT THE PARTS ARE NOT FROM THIRD PARTY VENDORS. ONLY PURCHASE APPROVED PARTS FOR FUITTING TO YOUR MAKE AND MODEL OF COOKER/ GAS UNIT)

Finally, if you do get your appliance worked on, always get a second opinion and always demand that you have your old part back (if any need to be fitted) as so you can have this checked over to find exactly the fault cause, and obviously to send the part back to the manufacturer/ vendor to make them aware of the issue.

I hope that this fixya is the fixya you require and also that you get this matter resolved in the fastest and most appropriate way. In the meantime, if I can be of anymore assistance, please feel free to contact me as soon as you feel the need to, and i will endeavour to advise you on virtually any technical issue that i have experiance within (mostly home/ business electricals and appliances).

In the mean time, i hope you take care, and hope to ghear your response soon.

yours sincerely

oz

SOURCE: Oven burner seems to have low flame

Check voltage to gas valve in the back of the boiler compartment. It is way in the back on the left hand side, turn on the top burners. If you do not get any volts or only 1 to 5 volts you will need to replace, It is supposed to have 24 volts to operate correctly

SOURCE: The oval burner has only very low flame, even when set on high

Every one of these ranges that I have seen with the oval style burner on them have a smaller flame then the normal round burners. And there is very little difference between the low and high settings. It sounds like what you are experiencing is normal. What the GE repairman was adjusting is called the "simmer stop". There is a small flat head screw inside the burner stem. By turning this screw you can adjust the size of the burner on the low position of the burner knob. This should be adjusted to where the burner still stays on when the knob is at the lowest setting. I do not think that you need the burner repaired. From my experience they are all like that.

Good Morning Robin C Reamer, thanks for your post!
From what you have described the broiler on your Frigidaire range is not starting. In order to have the proper component replaced I would suggest consulting with a professional technician in your area. Based off the information you provided it could be an issue with the burner or safety valve and having a professional come out would reduce the costs of parts. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Burner flame is low


Get a service person to adjust the gas pressure. If done improperly you will be somewhere in the wild blue looking back at what use to be your domicile.

The flames should be all blue - except when you first turn it on, where the flame begins, & only when you turn it on. Orange flames mean incomplete combustion is happening. Carbon monoxide is being released. Orange flames can also mean your getting low on gas. Clean it & try moving the disk around. An uneven disc means some flames will be higher & burn your pots. The flames are wrapping around your pots if they're burning on the sides. Keep flames under the pot. Regardless of the being clean, the odor means you need to check your gas level. Once filled back, the odor should be gone if that's the only problem. That is placed in the gas as a safety feature. Don't try to fix this problem yourself if the "easy" solutions don't work. It could be very dangerous. Invest in a carbon monoxide detector especially when you have anything gas.

When it goes to the second and third stage on the dial to make it hotter the flame goes out. If you re-pilot it, it comes right bak on, but it will not stay on the higher settings.


there is a flame rod that looks like a thermocouple at one end of the burner. Pull it back away from the burner toward the front of the heater slightly.This will allow the heater to operate at higher temps without shutting off the gas to the burner. The high limit will still work but the sensor is in the flame to close and is getting to hot as the flames get higher

Lots of yellow - then very low heat


Are the flames still yellow? If so the burner just needs to be adjusted which is very easy? Look at the ends of the tubes that come out of the burner and end right at the back of the gas controls. You should see a small piece of metal that will slide or spin to close a hole. You want to close or open it a little at a time while the grill is burning. Adjust this until you only see blue flame or blue flames with a little bit of a yellow tip.

Vulcan oil heater


1. Check electricity is on.
2. Check oil is in the tank and valve turned on.
3. Switch the fan off at the bottom left hand corner.
4. Switch oil knob to No.1.
5. Set Air knob to No.3.
6. Operate re set button (right hand corner of heater under settings dial). Either press in until it clicks or if the pull out version pull out until it clicks.

Wait - ignition should take place in a few minutes and flames will appear on the left of the burner under the radiants.

You should get occasional yellow crests above the pure blue flame just visible below the top row of burner holes under the radiants.

After the red warning light goes out you can adjust to higher settings.

The radiants do not glow on low setting.

You can adjust the heater on to higher settings but this should be done gradually - no more than 2 settings at a time.

Some warnings:

* The unit must be correctly earthed.
* Do not use anything except heater oil.
* Never attempt to re-light the heater when it is hot.
* If the red light does not appear when the oil knob is switched on, immediately turn the oil knob off. Reasons include: Heater is too hot; Electric plug turned off; failure of ignition system.

Good luck - no responsibility taken for the advice (but it is largely copied from my Vulcan heaters instruction manual which I still have (installed in 1967).
