Question and Answers


Why is the broil burner flame so small now?


First, the low and high broil setting has nothing to do with the size of the broiler burner flame. Low broil setting is 350 degrees and High broil setting is 500 degrees.

I must assume the surface burners and bake burners are working normally.

To increase the size of the broil burner flame:

  • Use a 1/2 inch wrench to turn the upper burner orifice spud counterclockwise (CCW). You will likely have to adjust the air shutter too. See images below.

Use caution when adjusting the orifice so that you don't twist the pipe fitting as you turn the orifice. I added the theory of operation in the last image.

NOTE: If the glow bar igniter is too weak it could cause the oven safety valve to not open, or to not stay fully open or to open and then slowly close which will cause the flame to be small and the shut off.

The broil igniter is part number WB2X9154 and the oven safety valve is part number WB19K14.
