We moved into a house that has a GE Profile cook top JGP933 and simmer on all burners is too hot. Is there anyway to adjust the gas flow to get the proper heat. We use LP and the range has a sticker that says it was configured for LP. Fame color is blue with little orange at tips.

Hi, Where the gas comes into the stove, there is a regulator. Have a service person check the incomeing gas pressure after the regulator with a manometer. Sounds like you are getting too much gas pressure to the range.
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.
I am not sure of this Model but most of the Gas Rail Cocks ( Taps) when you remove the knob you will find either a small hole drilled into the spindle This would be the Low Burner (simmer Rate) Adjustment there would be a small screwdriver requiredto do this , if its not there ,then there is usually a small screw on the side of the tap under the Knob Hope this will help you
Lowly what the potentior does is turn on the burner control system. When you turn on a normal burner you are opening a gas valve and closing a switch to generate a spark. Thus gas flow to the burner and spark. On the extra low simmer burner there is a electric solenoid between the burner head and the gas valve. this has to open as well for gas to flow. What the potentior does is signal the simmer control what level of flame you are requesting and telling the spark module to generate a spark. Once you go to the exlow setting the potentior tells the simmer control what level of heat and will cycle the flame on and off. So when the burner knob was between low and extra low, the flame would cycle on and off. You have to seperate the top section of the cooktop from the burner box to change the potentior for it sits on top of the gas valve for that burner.
lowly is it the left burners that won't lite? I only ask as depending on the model some of the Thermador cook tops had simmer control burners. This is a 3 part system on the burners. 1 a simmer control, 2 electric solenoid, 3 potentiors. When you turn on the burner the potentior tells the simmer control to send power to the gas solenoid. At the same time the unit will spark. If your unit has extra low on the left 2 burners then you have this system. The usual problem in the potentior. Hope this helps.
