Flame too high on one side

If one side of your burner has a flame that is too high, it could well be an improperly positioned burner cap. You may have taken the cap off to clean your stove, and this can lead to a misaligned burner cap. The cap is then raised, resulting in uneven flames.

Simply turn off the burner, let it cool, and realign the burner cap. It must be firmly on the burner and also level. Reposition it until it is the perfect fit.

Have you changed the gas?

You might need to also change the gas. Knowing which fuel you use for your gas oven can help to diagnose the condition. Perhaps you have a new gas cooktop installed and the flames are way too high. Most of these gas ranges are set for natural gas.

If the oven flames are too high, it could mean the oven was improperly converted from natural gas to LP (liquid propane). Natural gas has a lower transmission pressure than liquid propane.

If you connect a natural gas appliance to a higher pressure LP piping system and you don’t convert the appliance by installing LP orifices, everything just goes wrong. The appliance malfunctions.

  • Make sure the orifices are the correct size

The reason for this malfunctioning is that the orifices for natural gas are larger than those for liquid propane. These orifices dispenses fuel into the burner tube through a small hole.

The higher pressure gas flowing through the bigger natural gas orifice results in more gas flowing through the burner and a bigger flame. A gas technician will be able to see if the orifices installed are the correct ones.

If the oven was converted from natural gas to LP gas, get hold of the installer to convert the range. LP comes at a higher pressure, and your gas stove needs to be converted to use it because, if it’s not converted, the high pressure makes the flames too high.
