CHECKING THE MAINTOP BURNER OPERATION
Install the maintop burner caps on the burn-
If not already done, turn on the gas and
electrical supplies to the range.
Push and turn each of the maintop burner
knobs to the LITE position. You should hear a
snapping sound as the burner ignitors spark.
The gas at each burner should ignite after
approximately 4-seconds. When this occurs,
turn the knob to the HI setting. NOTE: Do not
leave the knob in the LITE position after the
burner lights, otherwise the ignitors will con-
tinue to spark.
Check the maintop burners for the proper
flame. The small inner cone should have a
very distinct blue flame that is approximately
" long. The outer cone will not be as distinct
as the inner cone. If the flame is noisy or is
blowing, there is too much air during combus-
tion. If the flame is soft and not high enough,
there is not enough air. If either of these
conditions occur, adjust the air shutters, as
shown on the next page.
Turn the maintop burners off.

ADJUSTMENT (SOME MODELS)
Some gas ranges have a low flame burner adjust-
ment, located inside the shaft of each gas valve
(see the illustration below). To adjust the flame:
Turn the gas valve knob to its LOW, or SIM-
MER setting, and remove the control knob.
Adjust the screw inside the gas valve stem so
that the flame size is as small as possible
without going out when the valve is turned
quickly from the LITE position to WARM posi-
Turn off the burners and reinstall the knob.
