That depends, Are the burners stainless steel or cast iron? The cast iron burners are heavy duty and can usually be cleaned, but the stainless kind may just fall apart after a few years of usage. It just may have clogged burner holes from rust and drippings that can simply be wire brushed. I'd use an air compressor to blow out debris from inside the burner as well.

I have a caloric oven, prestige series. Don't know model. it is about 15 years old. last year the oven wouldn't heat and smelled gas. That was repaired. Now, oven ignitor comes on but oven...


Hello,

The ignitor is bad again,if it (ignitor) comes on but no flame/heat its the ignotor again, what would make the ignotor go bad so fast (usually last 10-15 years) is a problem with the oven burner, so now BOTH the ignitor and burner would need to be replaced,if it is 15 years old the ignitor is readily avaliable but the burner may not be

Uniflame GBC772W grill is having some problems the burners do not seem to put out much gas to have a good flame on high i cleaned out the little burner holes but it seems like we don't get enough...


More than likely, the problem is with your grills LP Gas Regulator. To test this theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose 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 valve is fully open. Now, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to the highest setting. Has the flame height returned to normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Do all the flame heights, now look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

If not remove the burners from the grill and clean the properly, as well as the venturi valve (part of the burner, where the burner orifice enters the burner) on each burner. As spiders like to go into them and build a nest. After a thorough cleaning, reinstall the burners and try again.

If that still did not solve the problem, you need to replace the hose/regulator assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Be sure to take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

We have a Tappan gas range. Don't have the model number; it was in the apartment when we moved in. It is over ten years old. It has electronic ignition. The top burners all have orange-yellow flames...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i would take all units out and clean them..clean all holes in the burners.
since you have the problem on all burners..air/fuel is not the problem at the adjustments..you may have a gas regulator problem

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

My burners don't put out out much of a flame. Model CGBD48RSBX. Ten years old. Can I clean them?


Hello. Clean them with a wire brush and a shop vac. And, read on: re you frustrated because your gas grill doesn't get hot enough lately. The problem you are having indicates that you have to go through a procedure called "RESETTING THE REGULATOR". Follow these easy steps:
1. Turn the burners on for one full minute and then off.

2. Next, remove the regulator and the hose from the tank.

3. Then reconnect the tank to the regulator and hose.

4. And very slowly open the tank.

5. Last step is to fire up the burners and start cooking with you new hot flame.

The problem began the first time you opened the valve on the tank too quickly. In the future, always turn the tank valve on s-l-o-w-l-y to prevent this problem.. Joe

The Pilot burner flame is large & yellow


the pilot is getting too much air and is an indicaiot of dirty or air/ fuel ratio imbalance. The pilot is wimpy and the thermocoupler has alot to do with the gas . Make sure your thermocoupler is on the tip of the flame. You may end up replacing it. because it is showing signs of eminnt failure. When it fals your curners won't fire up. Good luck.

Amana gas range bake burner does not heat


Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.
