I have a 1997 Wolf oven/ range (Model # AS30KI) which I’ve just installed into my new kitchen. The stove was given to me by a friend, converted from liquid propane (LP) to natural gas (NG) and professionally installed. The conversion to NG was done professionally, and I have no reason to think that anything was done wrong. Both the oven and broiler work just fine.
The trouble that I’m having is with the burners (see the picture here: IMG_20120528_142254 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
. When the burner is turned on, and the flame is set to the “high” setting, the flame reaches ~6-8 inches above the stove top. The flame on the left two burners is tipped yellow/ orange.
The outer burner head, or (‘flame spreader’), seems to be have a flame coming out of each ‘hole’ -- (it looks as I’d expect). At the inner burner head (flame spreader), the flame appears to go right around the burner head -- it does not go through the holes in the burner head (this does NOT look like I’d expect).

Here’s what I’ve tried so far:
→ The professional installation crew (also a stove repair outfit) suggested that the holes in the burner head (flame spreader) needed to be cleaned carefully. I used a finishing nail and cleaned out each hole, and then washed the burner heads in cold water.
→ I’ve set the ‘air shutter’ to the correct setting, following the instructions here: Video: How to Adjust the Gas Valve on a Range | eHow.com
Any idea on what may be going wrong?
Thanks in advance for all of your help!
