Is this lp or natural gas? The screw you turned adjusts the low flame only. Did this just start, or has it always done this? Let me know.

Orifices burner flame adjusted


Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.

Burner will not stay lit. Push in knob-- flame starts, but will not stay lit as soon as you take pressure off of the knob, no matter how long you hold the knob in. Also, on other burners, I cannot reduce...


I never even saw one of these babys. Wow what a stove. The simmer issue might be fixed by removing the knob and seeing if their is a minimum flame adjustment in the stem of the gas valve. The non lighting issue could be some sort of flame sensing device not recognizing the fire is lite, you could try holding in on the knob a little longer to allow the flame sensing device to pick up OR get a brush and clean around the ignitor. She sure is a beauty. The constant ticking is usually a stuck spark switch.
To find the one that you suspect is stuck you must remove a wire from each switch till you find that one

The front right burner has very low flame and stays that way no matter how you adjust the knob. No smell of gas. I cannot use it the most important burner.


There are several small channels near the burner that the gas must pass through and one these is partially blocked. There are several channels or small holes that direct the gas horizontally to the point where the flame begins, and there is a small orifice (usually in a brass connector) that directs the gas upwards in the dead center of your burner assembly.
Gently pass a broom straw through these holes to clean them out. Do not use any metal pieces else you may enlarge the holes.

The oval burner has only very low flame, even when set on high


Every one of these ranges that I have seen with the oval style burner on them have a smaller flame then the normal round burners. And there is very little difference between the low and high settings. It sounds like what you are experiencing is normal. What the GE repairman was adjusting is called the "simmer stop". There is a small flat head screw inside the burner stem. By turning this screw you can adjust the size of the burner on the low position of the burner knob. This should be adjusted to where the burner still stays on when the knob is at the lowest setting. I do not think that you need the burner repaired. From my experience they are all like that.

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.

On my range GE Profile XL44, the front burner will not turn off, the flame stays on, the knob is hard to turn and will strip if I press it too hard, I had to turn the gas going to the range.


REMOVE THE KNOB BY PULLING OUT ON IT. LOOK IN THE CENTER OF THE SHAFT THAT THE KNOB GOES ON.....IS IT HOLLOW? CAN YOU SEE A SMALL SCREW HEAD IN THE HOLE? IF SO, YOU CAN TURN THIS SCREW CLOCKWISE FOR MORE FLAME AND COUNTERCLOCKWISE FOR LESS FLAME. YOU WILL NEED A VERY SMALL DIAMETER FLATBLADE SCREWDRIVER FOR THIS ADJUSTMENT AND MAKE SURE YOU PUSH BLADE INTO SCREW SLOT FIRMLY AND TWIST FIRMLY TAKING CARE NOT TO STRIP THE HEAD OF THE SCREW. ALWAYS PERFORM ADJUSTMENT WHILE BURNER IS ON WITH FLAME LOW.

Gas range top burners too hot


Get the installation manual for your range, and find the part on adjusting the low heat for the burners. On my Whirlpool, I found there is an adjustment screw inside the control knob shaft of each burner. The manual says turn the burner on low, remove the knob, then turn this screw until the flames are 1/4" high. Super-easy, it took me 5 minutes to do. I am sure all ranges have similar adjustments, might be in different locations - check the manual.

Simmer is to hot


I am hesitant about answering your question because if the flame is adjusted incorrectly it could be dangerous.
Remove the knob and look inside the stem of the gas valve. You will see a very small adjustment screw. This is where you adjust the flame for the burner.
What I usually do is light the burner and turn it to the lowest setting. Hold the stem in this position and turn the screw. They are usuall kind of stiff to turn.
You want to adjust the flame so that it just comes to the top of the burner cap at the low setting.
This is the important part!!!
When you have got the flame adjusted, put the knob on and turn the flame to high. Quickly turn it from high to low, if the flame goes out, adjust it higher. Repeat this test until you can turn it from high to low quickly and it stay lit.
Also important to remember. When turning the screw, a little turn goes a long way.
Post back if you have any questions.

Burner flame adjustment


there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.
