2. Turn ON Electrical Power and Open Main
Shutoff Gas Valve
3. Check the Igniters
Operation of electric igniters should be checked after
range and supply line connectors have been carefully
checked for leaks and range has been connected to
electric power. To check for proper lighting:
a. Push in and turn a surface burner knob to the
LITE position. You will hear the igniter sparking.
The surface burner should light when gas is
available to the top burner. Each burner should
light within four (4) seconds in normal operation
after air has been purged from supply lines.
Visually check that burner has lit.
Once the burner lights, the control knob should
be rotated out of the LITE position.
There are separate ignition devices for each burner.
Try each knob separately until all burner valves have
been checked.
4. Adjust the "LOW" Setting of Surface Burner
Valves (see Figure 6)
a. Push in and turn each control to LITE until
burner ignites.
b. Quickly turn knob to LOWEST POSITION.
If burner goes out, readjust valve as follows:
Reset control to OFF. Remove the surface burner
control knob, insert a thin-bladed screwdriver
into the hollow valve stem and engage the
slotted screw inside. Flame size can be increased
or decreased with the turn of the screw. Adjust
flame until you can quickly turn knob from LITE
to LOWEST POSITION without extinguishing
the flame. Flame should be as small as possible
without going out.
