Find you a GASMAN to resize your orifices. He will have special drill bits to do so. If I were there I could do it for you.

Can my 1999 Cadillac Seville concourse overheat by mixing too much water with antifreeze??


Theoretically yes. Antifreeze has a higher heat capacity than water. Basically, a liter of antifreeze can hold more heat than a liter of water. I dont think it would be enough to cause an overheat though

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.

I would like a higher BTU gas range and is shopping around for new range.


Most range manufacturers give you the but rating for there burners. I have an electric range that has a "fast boil" burner. It can bring a gallon of water to a full boil in about 10-12 minutes. I also have a commercial gas (propane) range. Its burners are rated around 33,000 btu

Can you boil in a slow cooker?


Generally, with enough heat and good insulation, water will boil. Boiling is caused by non-uniform heating - some spots are hotter.
My wife's slow cooker boils even on the low setting -slowly, but it boils.
Our rice cooker never used to boil until I burned tomato rice in it (OOPs). Don't make tomato rice in a rice cooker.

Top burners are propane. we are used to propane heating really fast. this stove seems really slow. 5minutes to boil litre of water. burners are having hard time lighting.


If it is new fromt the factory, you many have the natural gas (methane) jets in the burners. You will need to check your bag of parts to find the propane parts (LP parts). LP jets allow a different fuel/air mixture to burn at the right heat. Check the owner's manual for details how to make the change.

Please rate me - Good luck.

Kenmore smooth top - cooking problems


Smooth tops take a little geting used to than a coil top range....Make sure you have good flat cookware. NO GLASS COOKWARE. (ie vision ware.) Once the burner is set to high, it has to heat the glass, then the pot, so it does take about 2 min loger to boil, If you want to simmer, then i suggest bringing the item to a rapid boil, and then cutting back the heat to below the 1 on the range. and adjusting from there. All smooth top glass ranges do work in this manner. Most people can adjust to the switch, but not everyone can. there really is no problem with your range. BTW i work at sears, and i am surprised that no one helped you.
