I just go a new kitchen range and would like to know how to keep it woking properly. Any tips would be welcome.
I have a garland 10 ring burner but some of the rings arn't as powerfull as others! I have cleaned all the holes on the burners but the flame on some of the burners is weak! Is there anyway of turning them up or what can i do i had a repair man look at it he took it apart and build it together again and told me that that is the way it is but why are some more powerfull than others? Cheers Jeffrey
The key to keeping a kitchen range operating properly is to clean it regularly. Beyond that basic maintenance, only a couple of repair jobs are within the skills of most homeowners because most repairs require a thorough understanding of the appliance. With the help of an owner?s manual, you can replace door gaskets, adjust the feet beneath a range to correct for uneven cooking, and relight a pilot. Of course, you can also reposition racks if foods are cooking unevenly and you can check cords, circuit breakers, and fuses. Here are a few tips for cleaning your range: * Clean up spills soon after they occur. Some acidic foods, such as tomato products, can damage the surface of the cooktop or interior of the oven. * Loosen cooked-on gunk with water or baking soda and water?do not use abrasive materials, which can scratch surfaces. * Keep the reflector bowls of gas burners clean; it?s not only more pleasing, but the shiny surface makes cooking more efficient. * Wash burner controls and other knobs with warm water and detergent. Some knobs have markings that can come off, so take care not to soak or scrub them too much. * Clean gas burners and grates thoroughly. * Use commercial oven cleaners very cautiously, because they are highly toxic. Follow instructions carefully. As an alternative, fill a glass bowl with half a cup of ammonia and let it stand in the oven overnight. Wipe the walls clean with paper towels or newspapers. Before doing any work on the stovetop, always unplug the range or turn off the power at the main electrical panel. Do not hesitate to call a professional appliance repair person if you have any doubt about your knowledge or abilities when repairing an electric range.
Here is a tip that I wrote that will help figure out why the burner spark keeps on clicking...
