Pilot Flame is too high.

I need help with Admiral® 30 In. Gas Cooktop
Pilot Flame is too high.
The instructions say that in order for us to adjust it we have to “purge all air from supply system by turning on one top burner valve”.
How do we determine if we purged all air from the system?
How long should we wait until turning the valve off and adjusting the Pilot Screw?

You will only need to purge air from the supply if this is newly installed or if you have recently disconnected / reconnected the main gas supply for some reason. Otherwise, you can just skip that step.

If you do need to purge the system do the following:

MAKE SURE THE ROOM IS WELL VENTED TO OUTSIDE

REMOVE ALL SOURCES OF POSSIBLE IGNITION

Fully open the largest burner and allow to run until gas is smelt.

There is no way to say exactly how long it needs to be open as this very much depends on the length of pipework feeding the appliance, but in a typical domestic installation, this shouldn't be more than about 5-10 seconds.

Hope this helps,

Matt

I want to adjust my Admiral LGC1330AD gas cook top to work on propane. How do I proceed? I'm told there is no conversion kit, it is all adjustment.


Two thing you need to do.
1) Call your gas company where you are supplied propane and ask them to set you up and they or someone who contracts for them will help you.
So you will need to replace ALL burners including the oven.
2) Call Admiral and ask them about changing to propane and if they have the products

The flame is too high on my GE Profile gas cooktop


I had the same issue on my jgp975 and sadly I had to purchase a different unit. I use simmer frequently and I made the assumption that low was simmer. Wrong. I believe a true simmer is 450 btu and my unit did not go that low. I had to check the fine print/specs page and on some units the manufacturer had to be called. I did replace with another ge profile that did have the low setting.

When lighting one of the burners, the ingnition knob has to be held down over ten seconds for the flame to stay lit when the knob is released..


Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.

hope that helped.

Kitchenaid 30'' low flame output


It's wasn't the perfect solution but I removed all the burner caps and cleaned each one with a tooth brush. Then using a metal trussing pin, I poked through the flame holes to clean them. Noticed better flame output from both.
