The stove works fine the problem is on broil. When you light the broiler the flames go from one side of the bake compartment to the other. When you open the oven door the flames shoot out the front and have even melted the knobs. It worked fine the last time we used it. I suspect the pressure regulator, but I need an expert opinion. Thanks, Clyde
ANSWER Hello Clyde,
Since I'm not there to assess the situation first hand, I have to recommend the replacement of the burner and the thermostat. Gas is a very touchy thing to work with as everything has to be in very tight tolerance. If you still notice an issue after these parts are replaced, you should contact your utility board who provides your gas and have them check the pressure to the unit. Of course they will know, but they need to check the pressure at the appliance which places the pressure test after the gas pressure regulator at the tank/meter. The pressure regulator on the appliance regulates pressure for the surface burners also. Since you mentioned no issue with the surface burners, it cannot be part of the issue.
