Air Adjustment
An air adjustment shutter for each
surface burner regulates the flow of air to
the flame.
When the right amount of air flows into
the burner, the flame will be steady,
relatively quiet and have approximately
3/4 inch sharp blue cones. This is usually
the case with factory preset shutters.
With too much air, the flame will be
unsteady, possibly won’t burn all the way
around, and will be noisy, sounding like a
With not enough air, you won’t see any
sharp blue cones in the flame, you may
see yellow tips, and soot may accumulate
on cookware.
If the flames are yellow, use pliers to open
the air shutter more. If they blow away
from the burner, close the air shutter
more. Be sure to keep the gap in the air
shutter facing straight up. Be careful not
to distort the air shutter when making
adjustments with the pliers.
Now look at the inner cone of the flame.
It should be about 3/4-inch long for all
surface burners. If the flame is not the
right length, the orifice hood must be
adjusted. Use a 1/2-inch open-end
wrench to tighten the orifice hood by
turning in the LP direction to shorten
and the Nat. direction to lengthen.
