Can't boil water on new Maytag Gas Cooktop

I Just installed a new Maytag 36" gas cooktop. Required changeover to LP. Installation manual states that high output burner requires .097 orifice. Kit only had a .114 orifice, so I installed it. It took forever to bring a pot of water to a boil. Can I adjust air flow for larger orifice?

No adjustments.  You will need the correct orifices.  Contact maytag to get the correct ones.  They should send them to you for free.

    Thermador gas cooktop explosion

    I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

    I would have someone come out. Perhaps a gas plumber first. Gas is not something you want to fool around with yourself.
