Question about DCS Professional RDU305N 30" Pro-Style Dual Fuel Range with 5 Dual Flow Sealed Burners, 4.0 cu. ft. Self-Clean Convection Oven and Full Extension Telescopic Racks: Natural Gas
DCS five burner range - when the burner is lit, the flame height/BTU output doesn't adjust from High until you spin the knob all the way to low. Tested by boiling water at High & Medium (watched pot did boil!). True for all five burners. Would expect finer control of flame height. Any suggestions on what technician should look for? LP fuel. Problem exists for all five burners. Stove is new.
Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

Hello- What is probably happening is that the simmer orifice is clogged. If this gets clogged-up and not enough gas comes out to the burner it will continue to click. This is usually pretty easy to remedy. Take off the burner cap and you will see two holes, one in the center for the main burner and a smaller one that is on the perimeter of the burner. Look down that small hole and you should see a bronze orifice, it is pretty small, about 1/8" in diameter on the outside, looks like a nut. Most likely you will see grease or charred bits on the top of it (you can use one of the other burners for a reference if you are having trouble seeing it clearly) In the center of the orifice is a tiny hole, this is the part that is likely clogged. Now, you'll need to find something really skinny, like thin sewing needle and poke it into the orifice opening. Sometimes it is necessary to hold onto the needle with needle-nosed pliers in order to get it far enough in. Just be gentle with it and if what you are using seems too large in diameter then it probably is, you don't want to dent or cause any damage to the orifice opening. Once you get it cleaned out it should work ok. Let me know if you have any questions. Best regards.
