Stoves ?? ( gas)
[Return to Topics]

I found the electric smooth surface electric stove post interesting.
However, I have a fairly new double oven gas range.
My problem is how can I increase the flame on my stove top burners?
High is just not high enough to bring a large soup pot to a boil
or boil a large pot of water for spagetti.
It will eventually but it is so slow.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to adjust the flame.
I would like to have at least one front burner with a nice big flame!

Lenore, pull off one of the knobs of a burner, put on your really really really high powered reading glasses and inside that tube that the knob was on you will find an adjustment screw. Now this will prolly take a home adjusted screwdriver, as in grind a little one down, but you can re-fit one, and stick it up in that tube and turn that tiny screw to adjust your flame.
And no, this is not in any manual you got with your stove.

I do have a tiny little flat head scew driver. Is that what kind I'll need? It just has a tiny head it is regular length. I will try it.

Hated the idesa that federal regulations could make me take forever to boil a big pot of crawfish or gumbo!
Thanks, Ron!

If it is a fairly new stove (10 years or less) look under the top where the burner tube sits one the orfice, the orifice may be adjustable with a 9/16 wrench. Turn it counterclockwise like taking off a nut will increase the flow. Do it in 1/4 turns.

Yes it is fairly new.
The burner does sit on an orfice; it is removable.
Thanks, cornfused, I will try that, too.
I really appreciate the suggestions.

Lenore..Is your Yahoo working??

There's likely an adjustment, a pressure regulator or such, but if you don't find it in the Owner's Manual it might be that you're supposed to have it done by a pro. I know the couple of propane devices (gas logs) we've got, unless I'm really clear on how to do something I wouldn't trust me to do it. Gas can do real damage.

I don't have the answer you are looking for but gas stoves always remind me of this joke:

A novice skydiver jumps out of the plane for the first time, he pulls the rip cord, nothing happens. He pulls the reserve chute cord, again nothing happens. He is falling straight down and sure he will die. On the way down he meets a guy that is going straight up. He yells at him "do you know anything about parachutes". The other guy replies "no, do you know anything about gas stoves".

Sometimes,You can lift the cover and look along the small lines that supply the burners,You might find a screw that controls the gas volume.The burner has a flap that controls air mixture which gives the proper flame color..Which must be blue not red..But consult your instruction book.Dont try jumping out of a plane that is still airworthy or you might end up like the fellow above.Ha ha!!!!

Well,,I think FED regulations have put a screaching halt to adjusting by the person who bought the stove.Let's wait for an expert on this subject to drop by and solve this mystery.HELLO?? Where are you experts? Can you adjust flame height without congressional approval?

That is just too much!
When they get in my kitchen and tell me what I can and cant do!!
I think they should have to mop the floors and wash the dishes, and pay the grocery bill. :-(

The guy who was on here hideing from the government I think tore a tag of his matress

WOW! brave fellow huh.
I dont blame him for hiding!
I never tear those things off.
Got all mine on all the pillows and matresses.
I may try to over ride the kitchen police though.
My boy HH may help me, but if you all squeal;
I will deny it!!
I am tired, going to stretch out on the couch and rest before evening church.
Shhhh ... try not to be too rowdy.
