Hi,
Have them come back and check the gas pressure... either the tank regulator or the stove regulator are running at too low of a gas pressure... for propane it should be at least 10" WC...

1 burner flares and sputters


Hello. Chances are that something on the stove boiled over or got poured into that burner. take it off, soak it overnight in water with dishsoap added, then rinse it and let it dry before reinstalling it. Repeat the soaking in soapy water if necessary until the flaring, sputtering and black soot is gone. regards, Joe

Propane conversion


All gaq cooktops come from the factory ready to be installed to natural gas. If the only gas available is propane the orifices have to be changed. The orifices are product specific and must be ordered for your particular stove.

That being said, if this is a new cooktop you have the answer. If this is a used cooktop and you do not know which style of orifices are installed now just contact your propane company and they will be happy to help you for free.

good luck with this. and please remember to rate my answer.

I have a gas oven whirlpool sf3020ekq2 buners work but oven won't


Sounding like your hot surface ignitor is getting bad. What I would like for you to do is open the oven and take the bottom panel off. This is so you can see the hot surface ignitor. Turn the oven on and look at the hot surface ignitor it is down on the bottom right next to the burner assembly. Does it start to glow and turn cherry red? This ignitor isn't too hard to replace couple of small screws and two wires. Will have to cut the wires so disconnect the unit from the 120 volt plug. Now if it starts to glow and get cherry red hot then the gas valve is sticking and it is the one going bad. That is a little tougher to replace. Turn the gas off at the source and get your wrenches unscrew the gas valve small space so if you want remove the door by just pulling it off the hinges.

If unit is old and you don't like it anyway maybe santa would be good to you and replace the stove oven. The gas valve is about 60 bucks or so and hot surface is about 20 bucks. let me know how it turns out.. ken
