This appears to be a commercial unit, in which case if you are using it at home, you probably are using a pot that is too small.

    Try a larger pot, you will have to use more water too. This doesn't mean you have to cook rice for 20 people, it means you use a larger pot and more water.

Recently purchased a whirlpool gas range from Lowes "return,discounted aisle" I asked had it been converted to propane and they said yes it had. Wife is overly concerned how do you know they can...


Hello,

Their is no marking or anything easy to determine that.....however natural gas is lower pressure that propane so if you were using propane and it was set to natural ALL the flames would be huge since it would be operating on the higher pressure while it was set for the lower pressure which would result in a flame thrower from each burner and soot so if the flames are pretty normal size despite the small adjustment for the simmer i believe its set to propane.

I have a Kitchenaide model KGSS907SBL01 gas range. Everything works fine except that we find that the amount of heat generated is disappointing. This seems to come from the fact that the top of the grill...


Hello,
It would seem like reasonable thing to do.However the adjustment is typically for the low setting so you can adjust just the small flame just enough to simmer a pot without the flame going out from being so low its susuptable to going out on the low setting, also it so you can adjust the flame smaller so on low it isnt too high,causing it will boil when you intend to only simmer a dish your cooking. A question;is it all burners and have they always been that way?

Simmer plate rusted over


try using a white vinegar/water solution to wipe it off, then wash the vinegar solution off and seal with oil.

You may have to do it a few times to get the worst of the rust off.

If you get to the point of using it, to prevent it happening again,after use you need to clean it off any always finish by wipingit down with an oil soaked paper towel to seal it.

It will get discolored with use, so if you don't have one already
I would advise buying a cover, Viking make a stainless or a chopping block cover.

Burner goes out on simmer


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

Simmer is to hot


I am hesitant about answering your question because if the flame is adjusted incorrectly it could be dangerous.
Remove the knob and look inside the stem of the gas valve. You will see a very small adjustment screw. This is where you adjust the flame for the burner.
What I usually do is light the burner and turn it to the lowest setting. Hold the stem in this position and turn the screw. They are usuall kind of stiff to turn.
You want to adjust the flame so that it just comes to the top of the burner cap at the low setting.
This is the important part!!!
When you have got the flame adjusted, put the knob on and turn the flame to high. Quickly turn it from high to low, if the flame goes out, adjust it higher. Repeat this test until you can turn it from high to low quickly and it stay lit.
Also important to remember. When turning the screw, a little turn goes a long way.
Post back if you have any questions.
