Brand new gas model 790.7885 Is it possible to adjust flame height on the surface burners? The "power burner" center when bridged with the back is a much higher flame than the back. Also is yellow in color. (propane orifices have been installed).
Should all igniters be arcing no matter which burner is selected for lighting?

Hello. Most likely, there is a clog in the orifice of the burner(the tiny hole down in the center of the burner where the gas comes out). Take a paper clip and bend it out straight(make it long enough to be able to slide down into the orifice) and push it into the orifice back and forth at least several times with the gas valve turned off. This can break off any residue or debris that might have gotten wedged in the orifice. Also, if this *doesn't* help, you might very well have a defective gas valve that will have to be replaced. On the newer gas ranges, I've seen plenty that have one or more gas burner valve failures--they get jammed and won't turn at all or won't allow gas to pass when opened. Also, usually, in the center of the shaft of the burner valve, there is a tiny screw that adjusts the flame height. You will need a jewelers screwdriver to turn it to adjust the flame properly. Remove the burner knob and with a flashlight, look down into the shaft to see the screw. I hope this helps you!
Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.
try adjusting the gas/ air ratio shield. that is the tin collar over the opening where the gas jet is . moving it back or forward varies the amount of air available for the mixture and alters the flame height. and colour.
Normally, I would say know, if they are exact replacements. However, the only way to know is after you light the burners and check the flame colors and heights. For propane gas burners, the screw on each burner should be all the way in. For Natural Gas, about 2/3rd's of the way in.
If you tank has bee turned OFF during repair. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY aSlow Motion, slow) until the valve is fully open. Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Does the flame height and color look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights and colors look correct? If so, you're ready to start grilling with your new burners. If not, turn the burners OFF and Let them cool completely, before making any adjustments.
Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy grilling!!
Unless, your tank not is really low on gas and your burners really don't need cleaning? Try this:
Turn OFF the tank valve and disconnect the hose/regulator assembly from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow), until the tank valve is fully open. Then light the burner farthest from the tank and turn the control knob to the highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal on that burner? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. Now, do all the burner flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve on very, very slowly.
If the above didn't solve the problem, turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose/regulator assembly from the tank and the grill. Then, head on over to your nearest home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, because you need a new hose/regulator assembly. Be sure to take the old one with you for comparison purposes.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
Sounds right long as you did the conversion okay did you change the spring in the reg ? lp gas does burn lower than nat gas smaller blue flame . you could see if the aeration can be adjusted to the burners You could also check the pressure at the burners lp working pressure is 14in wg .
You could check the reg outside . That's all I got .
there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.
