Customer Question

My five star range burns propane. Its oven seems not to go above 400F and its griddle takes 20+ min to heat up. What can I do?

IS this a new oven or converted to propane?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I bought my range new ~1-year ago in a propane configuration (as evidenced by the model number I provided in my original request).

The first time I used the griddle, the flame ignited, audibly flickered, then went out. I contacted 5-Star who sent out a new griddle manifold and some parts, and set up a warranty call by a local tech. The tech simply bent the manifold bracket and adjusted the air shutter to give a steady mostly blue flame ~ 3/4 inch high. He then checked the broiler/oven manifold and said it looked to be OK (adjusted within spec). it has nnly been recent that when trying to heat the oven to ~500F for a Pizza that I noticed that two different thermometers showed that the oven would not go above ~400F.

Were you noticing baking issue or what type of thermometer are you using?
