I am not familiar with this stove but I think you could turn on the stove and look at the flame while you turn the knob to see which way is high or low.

Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

LP gas stove top . burners want turn down to low. Only medium and high flame work on burners.


Has this just recently happened? Check the knobs aren't cracked sometimes the brass spindle inside the knob is not gripping to turn it right down, also check your l p gas pressure it should be 2.75 kpa.
if the flames are big and yellow it's getting too much gas, not enough air.

Low flame on left front burners high flame onright front burnners


That is food/grease buildup. Clean the holes. TURN OFF GAS to stove, then just clean the holes in the burners with a soft wire brush. Then turn gas back on and immediately relight pilot lights. If that sounds scary, call your gas company, they might come out and help.

BO696 problems-burners too high on lowest position


Remove knob, with flashlight look down top of shaft see a slotted screw that screw is flame adjustment.

To adjust, light burner, turn flame to low, with screwdriver turn screw rite till flame is at desired hight (aprox 2mm). now turn up to high check that high is satisfactory if high is to low then adjust screw. check low again. adjust till both setings are acceptible.
do for all burners

As for holding the knobs that is common with this stove, you could check to see if flame is hitting sensor the burner hole that lines up the sensor may be dirty.
