IF THE FLAME IS LIFTING OFF THE BURNER, THERE IS TOO MUCH AIR IN THE MIX. LOCATE THE END OF THE BURNER WHERE THE FUEL ENTERS THE BURNER. THERE SHOULD BE AN ADJUSTMENT HOOD THAT CAN BE MOVED TO PARTIALLY BLOCK THE AIR INTAKE. THIS WILL REDUCE THE AIR MIX AND SHOULD MINIMIZE THE FLAME LIFTING OFF THE BURNER.
ON SOME SEALED BURNER COOKTOPS, THE MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS PLACING A PAN ON THE BURNER AFTER LIGHTING TO MINIMIZE FLAME LIFTING.

IF THE FLAME GOES OUT WHEN SET ON SIMMER,
THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT SCREW IN THE SHAFT OF THE VALVE ON SOME MODELS. REMOVE THE KNOB TO GAIN ACCESS TO IT. YOU WILL HAVE TO OBTAIN A SMALL SHAFTED FLAT BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT.

Gas stove blows off the knobs


When you went to use the stove again it sounds like a burner did not light. The gas built up and then came into contact with a flame and ignited. Gas, propane or natural, does not float around and dissipate, it settles and builds up, which is what it sounds like happened, and then ignites with a flame or spark. When you suspect that gas has been on, it is best to wait and turn a fan or something on to dissipate the gas before trying to light a burner...

I turned one front burner on it came on but


Light burner the same way you did before. When flame is present turn the knob down to "medium" level. Flame should stay on and clicking should stop. Adjust flame accordingly.

How do you dry out the stove ignitors? They have


You do this at your own risk, but try holding a lighter flame next to the igniter gap close to the burner and light the burner manually when the igniter clicks. The heat will dry them out.

Kenmore twin burner.. orange flames


A <i>temporary</i> orange flame from your gas stove can also occur at peak usage times. An increase in local demand can cause a decrease in pressure in the natural gas line. If all of your gas appliances are in combustion simultaneously, this may also cause a drop in pressure, especially in older houses. If the problem persists, it is likely a dirty/clogged burner or the stove needs servicing. In general, an orange flame (on a gas combustion appliance) means incomplete combustion and carbon monoxide production.

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
