SOURCE: 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.

If it were the gas regulator, existing flames would go down as more burners are turned on.
There are set screws on the pilot fittings that come out of the manifold, you could try turning those Counter-clockwise to turn the pilots up. (Don't loosen them all the way, they will fall out!) If that doesn't work chances are the pilot stems will have to be replaced to get a higher pilot flame.

Sounds like your range is set up for the wrong kind of gas, or, in the case of LP, your installer failed to make the necessary adjustments once it was hooked up. First step is to insure that you have the proper range for type of gas you are using. If not, the orifices for all surface and oven burners will have to be changed out. That should be done by a qualified service technician.

I think it sounds like one of two problems either the wrong orifaces were installed in the gas valves for the conversion or the pressure on the output side of the gas valve was not set correctly.

This model Southbend range is "built to order" for the gas type.
Orifice alignment is critical on this model especially on propane, so make sure that the orifices are pointing directly down the burner venturi tube.
Also, the air shutters for the open top burners will probably have to be wide open.
If you are in an area with an elevation higher than 2000 feet above sea level, you will have to run a smaller orifice.
Those are nice ranges. Good luck!
