Gas range burners not getting fuel

11 posts in this topic

All four burners are unable to be lit with a match. No smell of gas. Ignitors are functional. Oven fires up with no problem. Wedding on Saturday.

If there's no shut off valve between the gas pressure regulator and the stove burner manifold (and I don't think there is on this model), then it has to be a bad pressure regulator.  The port for the oven is still good for the port for the stove manifold has failed. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Pressure-Regulator/WB19K10001/247053?modelNumber=JGBP40BEC2CT

You can verify by using your Robert Shaw gauge manometer and measuring gas pressure at a burner orifice while turning the burner valve on.  Should have about 11" w.c.

Make sure that the flip valve (red lever on above photo ) hasn't accidently been knocked to the off position.

Inquiring minds want to know! What was the solution here, Murf?

The shut-off lever on the regulator should only shut off gas to the oven, NOT the surface burners.  Murf said oven is working fine surface burners no gas.

 

If the oven is working and none of the surface burners are flowing gas when turned on, (even if not lighting), and this happened all of the sudden after it was working OK, then the only thing it can be is a bad regulator.
