Burner goes out on simmer

Kenmore gas stove model 911 36659590 Evidently built by roper. All the burners work properly, but when on simmer burn very low and tend to go out, allowing gas to escape into the room.

    Thanks for the advice, you made me give a second look at the valves. The shaft was solid, but there was an adjustment screw offset and behind the shaft on the valve that that was just reachable with a thin flat head driver. It was not visible without a flashlight as it was set well into the body of the valve. The stove now works great on simmer! This stove had been converted to LP by the original owner, so I had to adjust all 4 burners, after replacing the jets.
    Thanks Ozzue

Sometimes the burner holes get clogged. I use a toothpick to clean out the holes.
Hope this helps.

Look down the shaft of the burner valve(remove the knob). with a very thin and somewhat long screwdriver you should be able to adjust this flame, with the burner on MED hold the shaft of the valve with a pair of pliers and turn the screw slowly( you'll need to hold the shaft tightly because if not you'll be turning shaft and not adjustment screw. small increments yield big changes in flame

There is an adjustment for correcting the air mixture on the gas line going from the knob to the burner. It usually is located at the point where the adapter nozzle enters the gas line going to the burner.

How can I adjust the flame on the simmer burner to be lower? It seems to be too much flame for a simmer. Otherwise cook top is working great.


Hi,
Where the gas comes into the stove, there is a regulator. Have a service person check the incomeing gas pressure after the regulator with a manometer. Sounds like you are getting too much gas pressure to the range.

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.

Thermador model RDF30RS burners won't light


Hi, there are two small circuit boards on those burner controls. They are called potentiometers. There was probably a boil over or spill at some point. They are notorious for failing. Hope that helps.
