Check youe installation manual, or downlowd one from the Amana website. Page 9, Low Flame Adjustment (for propane) or page 10, Reset the Valves for Natural Gas, explain how to adjust the flame height. It is easy, just be certain not to get carried away with how hard you crank on the screws: all hold small pieces in place or are for adjustment, not holding major structure together.

Remove the front panel to find where the gas injectors enter the burner tubes you will see they are cut away and have a screw holding an outer ring which is adjustable, open them up more to get more air in .
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.
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.
i haven't worked on one of these models hands on but on most you can pull the burner **** and look inside you should see a tiny ***** in there hold the outer piece with a pair of pliers and take a tiny screwdriver and after turning the burner on turn the ***** to adjust the flame just enough so the suction doesn't blow the flame out on the lowest setting
