Question about Kitchen Ranges
Yes it is a clogged stem. There should be a central needle that unblocks the jet at the top, remove this needle and clear of coke.
Try again, only this time pressurise without any of the "hat" on. Point away from you outside, and open up control fully.
A fine jet of about 1ft is normal, 3 feet or more and the stem needs replacing due to too large a hole.
If you have compressed air, blow through the jet from the top.
Use a copper wire for cleaning so as not to destroy the fine jet.
If this helps, Please rate as Fixya! or helpful if it only partly solves the issue.
