I have an older GE gas range that uses LP fuel. Last week, the front burner started sputtering and I could small gas fumes. It looked like the flame was coming out around the bottom of the burner instead of the little slits around the edge.
I removed the burner assembly and cleaned out what I could reach with a nylon brush and paper towel. There was just some very fine black soot on the inside, but when I tried it again, it acted the same. I popped it out again and reversed the burner assembly so the front burner (the malfunctioning one) was in the back and it still didn't work properly, but the rear which is now the front is okay, so I know it's a problem in that particular burner,
I ordered a new burner but wanted to know what could possibly have happened to the old burner to make it malfunction. Also will the new burner work with LP gas?
I believe Jeff over on Handymanwire answered this a couple days ago. Something burned over without being noticed.
