In Topic: LG Center Burners

Change which orifice??..........The   9100 BTUH ??.........or the 17000 BTUH ??..........The gas valve may not be correct for the replaced orifice..............You are not going to change a part that well  paid, highly trained  engineers have perfected for you, are you????

 

Welll, ummm, err, I was going to change the center burner 9100 to a 12000. If it's not as simple a matter of replacing ill or low performance designed motorcycle or auto parts that well paid, highly trained engineers developed I guess not.

 

If I want more BTUH to make my cast iron center burner griddle more useful than a warming rack without causing harm, why yes, yes I am :wink:

 

Gas valve? Dang, always a curveball

It is and has always been natural gas. The spec's say the center burner is good for 9100 BTU while the LF is 12000 and the RF is 17000. I think 17000 is too much, I guess I'll change the orifice to the 12000 and hope for the best.

 

Since it's GE made (ugh, had I known that :unsure: ) I suppose the GE spud nut orifices will work?

Model  number?

 

Usually, the metering hoods can be removed and cleaned.  

It's an LG LRG3091ST only about 6 months old and it's all clean. The brass orifice looks small compared to all the other burners except the tiny warming burner.

 

My question is can I replace the center one with an orifice that passes more gas :)

 

The burner covers (metering hoods?) seem to all have the same size holes too

Sorry for the long wait. I forgot about the fix once it worked. The part was easy to install and works as designed. It did take about 24 hours to thaw but I think that can be expedited if you leave the light on in the dispenser door. I have not had any more issues since the install which was about a month ago.

Thanks again to Pegi and the forum for advice.

I sure will. Thanks again. Now all I need do is wait for the part.
