Surface Burner Controls

before using any burner.
To Light a Surface Burner
Electric Ignition Models:
Push control knob and turn it to HI position.
The burner should light within a few seconds.
You will hear
a little “clicking” noise—the
sound of the electric spark
igniting the burner.
Flame will be almost horizontal and will lift
slightly away from the burner when the burner
is first turned on. A blowing or hissing sound may
be heard for 30 to 60 seconds. This normal sound is
due to improved injection of gas and air into the
burner. Put a pan on the burner before lighting it,
or adjust the flame to match pan size as soon as it
lights, and the blowing or hissing sound will be
much less noticeable.
