Hi . there isn't one . only in an oven built onto the thermostat
I spoke to Belling this Am and they told me that was what was needed adjustment to better control the flame intensity???
-------- i.e. flame intensity on each burner
Hi . I don't think that is right . a gas hob is preset , but will check . 2 mins , please
Hi . ok , yes there are . take off the control know and you will see the flame height adjustment screw.
Control knob , I meant
Control Knob? Had already done but cannot see an adjustment screw. One screw to RHS but that just holds the gas jet mechanism to the ss hob surface? John
----I Have to go out to see a friend in hospital. will reconnect later John
Its definitely there , just checked with smeg.
Back ! Glad its there but where? When I lift off the knob there is a fixing screw to the right (torq type) and there is a brown plastic clip that controls the spark when pushed down but nothing else that I can see! A real puzzle that I would love to get to the bottom of. john
It could be tiny.would you be able to upland a photo?
Do you have the model and serial number? Will be on the data badge
Its a Belling No ********* Bel GHU60GE MK2 Stainless
Toby, Not sure how to upload Photograph in this format Could email you one seperately if you let me have adddress. John
I've checked the manual and its not there. I think you have been told the wrong thing and there is no flame height adjustment on this model . is the flame too high , too low?
Too high on low settings so difficult to simmer! john
Is it running on natural or LPG gas?
Gas bottle of Butane !
Ok John . is the hob set for butane? On the data badge it should give a G rating.
The label says [email protected], G30 @28- 30Mbar, G31 @ 37mbar :
The technical Data in accompaning booklet refers to injector markings for LP gas of 70, 70, 87 & 50! It also refers to bypass screw for eack of 32, 32, 40, 27! Hope this makes some sense! Have to go again. John
You are running g30 butane. I think you have the wrong injectors installed . they sit under the burners and screw in an out.
In the booklet does it say what injectors are for g30 butane?
The hob will usually come with ba pack of them to change depending on gas used
Ok . John . hob small injector73. Hob med injector 145. Hob large injector 218 . hob wok injector 254. Once these are screwed in your flame should be normal . these are the butane injectors. Screw them in fairly tight and test for leaking by turning on , putting finger over the jet and putting leak detector( washing liquid and water ) will work too .but if in any doubt of your ability get a LPG gas engineer .
Toby, replaced the jets this am and sorry but this is not the solution. They fire up with great verve but burn yellow at the tips. Clearly not enough air! I have not resolved the question as to whether there is a bypass screw to tailor the flame to allow a simmer to be achieved. I called Belling this am to try and get an answer to this. Stonewalled!! Techicians will only talk to a Gas Safe engineer. Fair enough but as the customer I believe that I have a right to understand what I am letting myself in for before tasking anyone else.
Thanks for your assistance ! John
Hi . John , I will phone them myself and get Back to you . John its definitely the belling model , not the smeg culina?
Hi . John do you have the GC number , should be on bthe data badge or manual,thanks
Thanks Yes the Belling model No ********* Seriel No 27!40815460. Reference is made in accompaning booklet refers to injector markings for LP gas of 70, 70, 87 & 50! It also refers to bypass screw for each of 32, 32, 40,27. I the guess therefore that conversion kit ( No ********* that is referred to in the booklet that Belling would supply but when asked, not/could not tell what it contained, probably has these bypass screws enclosed ! There is no GC number on display just the above and BEL GHU60GE MK2 John
Hi John .
Just been on the phone to belling technical. They say it needs a butane conversion kit , part number08261498. There should be flame height adjustment on the knobs. Did you have the butane conversion kit?
Toby,Thanks and no I do not have the butane conversion kit. I wanted to know what I was buying i.e. what was in the kit. I will now do just that now. You have been more than helpful and I appreciate your patient handling of my quieries. John
