What you need to do is open up the stove an dyou need to adjust the amount of oxygen that is coming into the burner. this is done by going to the end of the gas tube and there should be something that can be turned to adjust the oxygen flow.

You need to replace the burner if you want blue flame. Since its 10 years old, it's about time to replace the burner with similar size and shape. Old burner have big hole causing yellowish flame compare to new one.
I hope I solve your problem.

I have a maytag super capacity plus stove and need to adjust the air mix for the burners. How to do it? Please help thanks


Open the top of the range. I believe there are a couple of spring clips in the front between the range top and the top of the door. Not sure on the Maytag. However, when you get the lid up, (it should be hinged at the back), set the burner pieces back on. (These burner pieces HAVE to be there or you'll just have a blowtorch pointing up!) You'll see that going to every burner there is a tube to carry the gas. on the side of every tube there will be an adjustable, sliding air vent. They are usually held in position by a set screw. Loosen the set screw. Light the burner and carefully slide the vent closed or open to adjust how much air is being brought into the mix. If the flame is way too high and or orange in color....you have too much air. You want as much flame as possible on high without the flame being orange or white-ish. Once you get the flame the way you like it, tighten the set screw back. Hope this helps.

All 5 burners are burning orange-yellow flames.


According to this thread:
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r23696179-Gas-stove-orange-flame
It sounds like it is impurities in your (or more likely your suppliers) gas line. If it goes away but reoccurs semi regularly, then I would guess this is what it is.
If it is happening all the time, or you are concerned about it, call your gas company and ask them about it. I am sure they havve heard of the problem before.
Good Luck!

The gas flame on my 4 burner Chambers stove top is very low. When we try to adjust the air flow the flames increase for a moment but then return to being low. What could the problem be and how can we fix...


I had the same problem after a melted butter accident... I shut off the gas under the stove by a valve. Then I took the burners off and cleaned every orifice I could find. Still no luck. Then I cleaned out the main orifice right out of the controls for the burners, it was tiny and had to get a very small pipe cleaner made for an air brush gun. That did the trick! But now I have soaring flames and I'm trying to figure out how to adjust them back down.

When one of the gas hobs is on ,it does not burn with a blue flame but a more yellow one .also black soot forms under the burner plate.it is on lpg


Have to adjust the piolot lights for the amount of gas coming out. U have too much gas coming out(yellow flame). On older gas ranges, there was a small screw between the piolot light & burners that had to be adjusted. (if this is a older model) have to turn the screw just a little at a time, till ur flame returns to blue on ur burners. Hope this helps.

I just had a tech come to my house and he told me that I need a new glow plug, It's the box to the right of the flame. Looks easy to replace, his visit took 5 minutes and it cost me 143.95 (this doesn't include the cost for the part or to have him come fix it, that will be sometime next week) so if you can get the part and do it yourself I would suggest that.

If the gets give no gas then sounds like a Thermocouple, this is a device that allows the gas to come on after a period of time ensuring that the pilot is lit and heated up this thermocouple, once it heats it then allows gas to enter and ignite the main burner..hope this helps ,please leave feedback.

This is becoming a common problem. If your dual burners are controlled by the burner switch only, then you need to replace your dual burner infinite switch. Some models have a seperate rocker switch that switches from small burner to both burners. If you have this style then this is usually your problem. Can also be from shorted wiring but this is very unlikely. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Viking Microwave Model VMOC205SS little over 4


9 amps is approx. correct. Does magnatron make an odd sound when running? If not, you will need to discharge cap then clean terminals with alcahol. Replace diode as well. Should run correctly.If blows again, replace magnatron. Suggest you put a 12 amp fast blow fuse in circuit and nor a 20 fuse.If you dont have a grill or an oven, use a 10 amp fuse.

Stove won't stay lit!!


So, you cleaned the burner per the manual (or the one you looked at when visiting the appliance store,) and it still flames out right after coming on? Sometimes things catch in the works and there are a few methods to clear them out (e.g. at the controls) depending on the model. Beyond that,in order to disconnect the stove and check the inlet filters, you might want to call the appliance or gas co for a technician. No use having leaks, searching forever for the main shutoff valve, etc.
