Its the front right burner.We are at sea level.This stove is approx5-6tyears old
and burned very good until recently.
Is it on simmer when it goes out?
When it does light on full is the flame coming out even or is it jumping or uneven?
The burner goes out at full flame it seems to do it at full mostly.also
prior to this problem the burner never seemed to come on at fuill
flame it started getting smaller as we used it. Hope im not confusing
We are doing ok. When it goes out does it spill out gas?
Does it relight if you turn the valve off and then back on?
Yes it does.The burner is hard to light even when its first lighten.
yes something was spilled on it.I cleaned it a much as I could.Now it looks like
a little baked on ,on the outside.I thought that it may need a new
The little brass peice below is where the gas comes out. It has to be clean. It should be removable and cleaned with hot water and an air compresser. If you use something to poke through it make sure it will not enlarge the hole. Also make sure the burn and the electrode tip is clean of the spill. Clean up on this should get you back working without buying any parts. Unplug and turn off the gas to the unit when you take it apart. If you unscrew all the burners there will be two spring clips located between the top and valve panel. This will let you lift the top and have better access. Do not try to lift the top until all the burner screws are out.
