Default KitchenAid Cooktop Gas Comes out slow at start
Model Number: kgcs166gss05   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a cooktop where all the 5 burners igniters work , but the gas takes awhile to come out. It comes out slowly or not at all at first for about a minute and then it comes out fine and lights. It is the same for all 5 burners. It is the same if I open one burner or all of them at the same time. Once light, I can turn them off and then they light right away again. I think it is the regulator. Can you confirm if you think that is the cause? Is it difficult to change the regulator?

Thanks,
Derek

Derek,

Most likely the problem is a bad pressure regulator. Usually it is located under the cooktop. If you can access it from the cabinet then you do it that way. If it's hard to work in the cabinet then you have to remove the cooktop from the counter.

- The part number for the pressure regulator is AP3032662

Gene.
