Frigidaire gas range-gas flow reduced at 2 burners
« on: July 31, 2013, 05:06:54 PM »
    The two biggest burners (12 & 16,000 btu) do not have the same flame height or heat output that they used to have. What are the possible causes? Should I try cleaning the burner orifices first?

Look straight down at the center of the orifice,you may see a grey/black deposit in the center (the hole) take a small needle and clean it out, DO NOT make the hole larger with the needle just clean it.

 :) Thanks for tip. Problem solved! Orifice hole appeared to be ok, but wire cleaned it and gas flow is now normal and flame ht. good. Regarding these orifices when I first started researching this problem I checked out the Sears parts online site and they were listing the power burner orifice at about $80.00. Is this a reasonable price for the little orifice?
