Propane Stove Question

We have a 3 burner Magic Chef propane stove with the oven. It is in excellent condition and almost looks new. It lights fine and the burners perform as they should. However, when we turn the burners off, they "pop". It's a little disconcerting. We have had propane stoves before and none of them have ever done this. Anyone else experience this? Any thoughts? Chuck

Mine does that it's a long ways from the cutoff to the burner.

Not sure what that means. The burners turns off at the knob on the stove. Every propane stove I have ever owned operated the same and none have done this. Chuck

I found this on the internet:
gas oven popping noises - DoItYourself.com Community Forums

Quote:
The most likely cause is too lean a burning mixture. This is controlled by the amount the air entering the burners air shutter.

The shutter is located on the burner tubes closest end to the gas valve. <At the end of the burner tube> On the tube there will be a sliding shutter held in place by a small phillips screw.

To Adjust: Loosen this screw slightly and adjust the slide cover to slightly reduce the volumn of air allowed to enter. In other words, close the shutter a TINY amount only. Tighten the screw carefully and test the oven.

CAUTION: Slightly move the shutter. Closing off too much air and the burner flames will either turn yellow or the tips of the flames will turn yellow. Neither is correct. The flames must be ALL blue.

Once the first adjustment is made, test the oven. If all the popping stops, then you got it set correctly the first try. If not, do it again and retest.

The TIP here is to do this in small increments, if needed, until it's correctly set. In some cases the burners shutter will be difficult but not impossible to access. Rarely ever will the burner have to be removed to adjust the shutter. <However, it does get HOT in there real quickly!>

Another possibility could be a small portion of the burner isn't lighting or remaining lit. When the oven is on and with the broiler door closed, visually watch the burner thru the glass. What your looking for is any flame flashing anywhere, a non lit portion of the burner that lites and goes out again <flashing> or part that doesn't lite or remain lit. <Some burner ports may be clogged.>
Hopes this helps

Thanks Pete, I'll give it a try. I did some searching but didn't see anything like that. The oven works fine and does not have the same issue. Much appreciated. Will report back. Chuck

Normal IMHO.

If your flame is "true blue", you have no issues.
