Question about Kitchen Ranges

Jenn-Air JGD8130 We've discovered that our new Jenn-Air JGD8130 gas cooktop does not produce high enough heat to properly boil pasta or fry food. The natural gas burners are rated at 10,000 BTU and 8,000 BTU. Can larger diameter venturis be installed, or the existing venturis bored out to increase the BTU output. The 8,000 BTU burners have a venturi diameter of 0.052 inches and the 10,000 BTU burners have a venturi diameter of 0.055 inches. The problem is not becuause of our gas supply since our previous 40 year old Hardwick range that this cooktop replaced before our kitchen wias remodeled produced plenty of heat to rapidly cook food. It takes forever to cook or grill anything on this range. The downdraft vent seems to pull all of the heat out

    I am having the same problem (not enough heat if the vent is on) and am hoping to buy new burners from Jenn air - still looking.

    Same problem with Jenn Air JDS9860aaw. 10,000btu burner does not perform well. Disappointing for an $1,800.00 appliance.

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?


Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

Electric combination range/ovens are stoves that have both surface burners and an oven. Depending on their features, some electric range/oven units are quite complex. To understand how they work, let's look at the following areas:

The control panel
The cooktop
The area beneath the cooktop
The interior of the oven
The broiler
The back of the unit

GE gas range on propane, using propane jets, the burner regulator knob has little effect on heat output. Is this a gas burner valve issue?


You also need to set the regulator to LP. The symptom described is an indication that the regulator is still set to natural gas. The manual should tell you how. As I remember, there is a cap on top of the regulator that is removed to allow access to a retainer that needs to be turned over so the "LP" is facing up. Check your manual or look it up online

Converting from natural gas to propane


Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.
