Push and turn the oven selector control knob
for a setting of 350˚F. The oven burner should
light in 50- to 60-seconds (the delay is due to
the time it takes for the gas valve to open and
the gas to flow to the burner).

5.
Check the flame coming from the burner bar.
If the flame is noisy, or is blowing away from
the bar, 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, proceed to the next step.
6.
With the burner lit, loosen the locking screw,
and adjust the venturi air shutter opening for
the best flame, then retighten the locking
screw.
