Bosch gas cooktop - propane - adjust low flame

Is there any way to adjust the lowest flame in the small burners in our 30" Bosch cooktop? The owner's manual shows no such adjustment. There is no way to simmer anything on even the smaller two burners.

    Same issue on 30" Miele. Was your cooktop installed without a pressure regulator? I suspect mine was and that is likely going to be the solution.

I am not familiar with your particular model, but if you just had it installed, I'd say that the outlet you are using to plug it in is on a GFI circuit (ground fault interrupt) You cannot use a cooktop with automatic re-ignition on a GFI circuit, as it will do exactly what you are describing. Easiest way to check this is to go to home depot and buy a little outlet tester that will tell you if your polarity is reversed in the outlet (another possible cause) or if it is a gfi or non gfi. The other thing you could try is unplugging the unit and plug it into an extension cord. Then take the cord and run it to a non gfi outlet in a hallway or anywhere but the kitchen or bathroom areas and see if it behaves itself then. Hope this helps!

If you can give me the model number I can give you 3 places and there prices. The model number should be located on the bottom of the unit.

Check to make sure your burner caps are aligned. I had this problem, and it turned out one of my burner caps was slightly askew. Putting it level fixed the problem.

I am using propane for my cooktop but all my pots and pans have been turning burnt black soot on the bottoms. It's ruining all my other dishes now from the dishwasher spreading it all over, We tried...


You don't have the right Gas to Air ratio..... Not enough air to the burners or you are running to low of gas pressure for propane... Propane takes a smaller orfice or operate than Natural Gas.....
You should have 10" of WC for Propane operation..
You will need a manometer to check it.
The flame should be a blue color with no yellow in it. There should be air shutters right at the orfice to each burners. You will have to play with the adjustment to get the best blue flame with no yellow in the flame.... Hope this helps.....

I have a bosch cooktop 5 burner and one burner lites its very dim and then goes out


Is this cooktop new? Was it converted to propane or do you use natural gas? If it was converted, I was just thinking they put in the wrong size orifice. If it has been working fine and is just now giving you problems, then check the burner holes and see if they are partially plugged from food spills.

The flame is too high on my GE Profile gas cooktop


I had the same issue on my jgp975 and sadly I had to purchase a different unit. I use simmer frequently and I made the assumption that low was simmer. Wrong. I believe a true simmer is 450 btu and my unit did not go that low. I had to check the fine print/specs page and on some units the manufacturer had to be called. I did replace with another ge profile that did have the low setting.

Low flame from gas cooktop


you can adjust the flames as follows pull a knob and look in the end of the brass peice you will see a small screw first you have to find a screw driver that will fit then with a pair of pliers hold the outer peice with the burner on and turn the screw one way rasies other lowers ideal adj is to turn buner all the way up then fast down if flame goes out to low keep working like that till flame is low but doesnt go out
