Air Shutter
if the air shutter needs adjusting, rotate the shutter to
allow more or less air to the burner tubes as needed.
For Natural Gas it may be necessary to rotate the air
shutter to some point less than half open for normal
flame; for LP Gas it may be necessary to rotate the air
shutter to a nearly full open setting for a normal flame.
C. Burner Flame Adjustment
1. Proper Air Adjustment (figure 16)
if the air shutter is properly adjusted, flame will be
steady, relatively quiet, and will have approximately
½" sharp blue cones. With LP gas, this usually occurs
when shutters are halfway open.
2. Too Much Air (figure 17)
if the air shutter is adjusted so that too much
air flows into the burner, the flame will appear
unsteady, will possibly not burn all the way around,
and will be noisy (like a blowtorch).
3. Not Enough Air (figure 18)
if the air to the burner is insufficient, you will not see
any sharp blue cones in flame. the flame may burn
with yellow tips, and soot will accumulate on utensils
used on the burner.
