Changing Burner on Frigidaire Dual Fuel Range Cooktop
« on: January 10, 2010, 01:14:06 PM »
I have a fancy (OK, fancy for me!) Frigidaire PLCS389EC dual-fuel range with gas cooktop. I've had it for about 2 years now, and it's quite a nice unit.

One feature that irks me, though, is the 'ultra low' burner on the back right. It's rated at 5kBTU, and that makes it very low usage for . It's meant for simmering, but we use other ways to simmer stuff. I'd like to have a way to heat another pot of water quicker to steam stuff.

It is possible to upgrade the burner to something like the 9K burner that is on the fright left, or the 14K burner in back left? What's involved here? Any idea on cost?

Just trying to make this beauty a bit more useful.

Thanks for all the help.

remove the knob for that burner and look down the shaft for the valve with a flashlight
some valves have an adjustment, if you see a screw at the bottom of the shaft you can adjust it a lil bit to try getting a better flame out of that burner
