Check operation

E
Electronic ignition system
Cooktop and oven burners use electronic
ignitors in place of standing pilots. When a
cooktop control knob is turned to the "LIGHT"
position, the system creates a spark to light the
burner. This sparking continues until the
control knob is turned to the desired setting.
When the oven control is turned to the desired
setting, a hot surface ignitor heats to a bright
orange and ignites the gas. No sparking occurs
and the glow bar remains on while the burner
operates.
Check operation of cooktop
15.
Push in and turn each surface unit
control knob to "LIGHT" position. The flame
should light within 4 seconds. Turn control
knob to "HIGH" position after burner lights.
Check each cooktop burner for proper flame.
The small inner cone should have a very
distinct blue flame 1/4" to 1/2" long. The outer
cone is not as distinct as the inner
cone. If the flame is noisy or
blowing, it is getting too much air.
If the flame is soft and lazy, it is not
getting enough air. Turn surface
burner control knobs to "OFF"
position. Adjust air shutter if
needed.
If surface burners need adjusting:
1. Remove control knobs. Do Not use a metal
blade to pry off control knob; this could
damage the product. If the control knob
cannot be easily removed, tuck a cloth under
the knob and pull out on the cloth with
steady, even pressure to remove the knob.
2. Open oven door and remove 3 screws from
bottom of manifold panel. Pull down slightly
on manifold panel and pull panel away from
range.
air shutter
3. Using a flat-blade screwdriver, adjust the air
shutter for each burner as needed. Close the
air shutter to decrease the amount of air to the
flame. Open the air shutter to increase the
amount of air to the flame. Adjust the air
shutter to the widest opening that will not
cause the flame to lift or blow off of the
burner.
4. Repeat the first part of Step 15 after adjusting
the air shutters.
5. Replace manifold panel by tightening 3 screws
in bottom of manifold panel.
6. Replace control knobs on valve stems.
16.
Push in and turn each cooktop
control knob from "LIGHT" to "LOW" setting
quickly. The low flame should be a minimum,
steady blue flame.
If flame needs to be adjusted, turn control
knob to the "LOW" setting and remove control
knob. Insert a small flat-blade screwdriver into
the valve stem. Turn the valve screw to obtain
the smallest flame that will not go out when
the control of a cold burner is quickly turned
from "HIGH" to "LOW". Repeat for other
cooktop burners as needed.
