Kenmore Elite Gas Stovetop
Model Number: 790.75503 Brand: Kenmore Age: 5 - 10 years
When turning on stove top - Igniter lights, but takes forever to produce a flame. One can light it with match, and each burner works find afterward. Always a problem, when range is first turned on. Took entire range apart, and cleaned everything, including gas port on each burner. This happened only once- Once one burner comes on, flame might be low at first, then immediately excels shortly after. Please advise? When entire stove top was apart, each burner has a center high flame, which can be adjusted high and low with knob.
Answer Hello Joan. Check for dirty burners, and moisture in the system. If all that is good, then the valves on the manifold is bad and will need to be replaced.
Do you have this part for a propane hookup? I am buying a used stove that was used for natural gas and would like to convert it to propane.
Answer Hello Eric. If you unscrew the large brass nut and flip the regulator in it over, then the regulator 318122700 is now set for LP gas. Hope this helps.
