Guide :Cooktops : JGD8130 Gas Cooktop
Jenn-Air JGD8130 We've discovered that our new Jenn-Air JGD8130 gas cooktop does not produce high enough heat to properly boil pasta or fry food. The natural gas burners are rated at 10,000 BTU and 8,000 BTU. Can larger diameter venturis be installed, or the existing venturis bored out to increase the BTU output. The 8,000 BTU burners have a venturi diameter of 0.052 inches and the 10,000 BTU burners have a venturi diameter of 0.055 inches. The problem is not becuause of our gas supply since our previous 40 year old Hardwick range that this cooktop replaced before our kitchen wias remodeled produced plenty of heat to rapidly cook food.
