I have a kenmore gas stove. the power burner, when I turn it

Resolved Question:

I have a kenmore gas stove. the power burner, when I turn it on has a blow torch sound and has the flame larger on one side than the other side of the same burner. On the small burner I have to wave air at it while the lite area of the button is on to get it to light. I have tried to clean these but the results are the same. Anything I can do?

Hi my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem.Please allow me some time to do research and type a response to each of your posts.

The only thing you ca try is cleaning part 10 (depending on burner) and cleaning and adjusting the orifice part 11, If this does not help then the likely source of the problem is the valve part 2.
