Question about Whirlpool GFG461LVS Stainless Steel Gas Range

Open Question

I have a model GFG461LVS2 gas range. The gas company installers are unable to lower the flame height on the burners. The tiny screw that is turned thru the knob does not go down enough to lower the flame.

SOURCE: burner flame adjustment

there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.

SOURCE: cannot adjust flame on gas burner

Is this lp or natural gas? The screw you turned adjusts the low flame only. Did this just start, or has it always done this? Let me know.

SOURCE: new gas range converted to propane

I think it sounds like one of two problems either the wrong orifaces were installed in the gas valves for the conversion or the pressure on the output side of the gas valve was not set correctly.

SOURCE: Burner flame too high

make sure you have a gas range and not a propaine range. You may have a bad pressure regulator.

SOURCE: Range burner will not turn off, the knob is tight and stuck

Not knowing age - very often older (standing pilot) ranges will have burner valves that become hard to operate. These are usually a tapered core valve that can be greased with a high temperature valve grease.

How to adjust oven burners to lower it and to turn up top burners


Really you should get a registered gas fitter to do this especially with the oven.

There is a small set screw behind the plate that covers the control knobs. Light the burner, turn the knob to its lowest setting and then use the adjusting screw to set the minimum flame height. The flame must be robust enough that it can't blow out when you open a door or window and create a draught.

One ring has very low gas pressure, all others OK. This has only happened in the last few days, until then there was no problem.


Hello. Most likely, there is a clog in the orifice of the burner(the tiny hole down in the center of the burner where the gas comes out). Take a paper clip and bend it out straight(make it long enough to be able to slide down into the orifice) and push it into the orifice back and forth at least several times with the gas valve turned off. This can break off any residue or debris that might have gotten wedged in the orifice. Also, if this *doesn't* help, you might very well have a defective gas valve that will have to be replaced. On the newer gas ranges, I've seen plenty that have one or more gas burner valve failures--they get jammed and won't turn at all or won't allow gas to pass when opened. Also, usually, in the center of the shaft of the burner valve, there is a tiny screw that adjusts the flame height. You will need a jewelers screwdriver to turn it to adjust the flame properly. Remove the burner knob and with a flashlight, look down into the shaft to see the screw. I hope this helps you!

Orifices burner flame adjusted


Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.

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?

call in a gas fitter as the jets for the propane are probably incorrect.

Gas range top burners too hot


Get the installation manual for your range, and find the part on adjusting the low heat for the burners. On my Whirlpool, I found there is an adjustment screw inside the control knob shaft of each burner. The manual says turn the burner on low, remove the knob, then turn this screw until the flames are 1/4" high. Super-easy, it took me 5 minutes to do. I am sure all ranges have similar adjustments, might be in different locations - check the manual.

Burner flame height adjustment


All ignitors will always arc whenever one of them does.

I haven't worked with propane systems much, but it seems you may need the propane pressure regulator adjusted.

If the problem is only with the power burner, I would ensure that particular orifice was actually changed. The hole in a propane orifice is smaller than for natural gas.
