Having issues! I hooked the gas up and traced the lines, no apparent leaks or crimping of the piping....... however when I light the stove its a flicker of a flame at best. Im open to ideas as to the issue..... could there be water in the lines? is the regulator bad? Where should I start my search? Any thoughts would be appreciated before I tear out the rest of the gas lines and put in all new.......
Without seeing your range in person, I would suggest that there is not enough air in your mixture and the "burn" of fuel is not complete. Look around your pilot light or burner valve as there should be an air inlet that can be adjusted with a set screw or even a recessed hex nut. You can tell the direction (plus or minus) you are going by the watching the pilot light as you make this adjustment.
I had a similar issue with the stove in our Aladdin trailer. Ended up with 2 things wrong.
1) the propane line was plugged. Our trailer sat for years, so there was something in them. Also there is some oils in propane that over time can accumulate in the lines and prevent adequate fuel flow. What I did was blow the line out from the stove side toward the tank. At first there was no air flow at all, then a popping sound as the line cleared. The stove now works but the oven still doesn't like me. When you do this just make sure that the tank and any other propane appliances are disconnected from the lines.
2) I also had a bad regulator, only way to find out is try another one. You may be able to blow air through a good one, that I can't say.
when reconnecting lines, if they are a flare type connection (most are) do not use teflon tape; if there is a leak there is something wrong that needs a proper fix.
Thanks for all the info guys, I'm really going to have to get a new regulator and run new lines to the stove to ensure all is well. I have a hunch the regulator is plugged up some, and I did find a kinked line I straightened but it really should be replaced.
I am having a similar issue with my stove, and if anyone has any other suggestions I would appreciate any help. The stovetop works great, no issues at all. The oven, however, has a perfect pilot but when the oven is turned on I get the burner lighting for abot 3/4 of a second and then it goes out. It does this every 30 seconds to a minute, never staying lit for longer than a second. Any other ideas?
