Hello there:
Please follow these very easy steps and this should help you
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Gas Ranges
  • Screwdriver Sets
  1. Step 1 Find the tube that feeds the burner. There's a burner air adjustment on it that mixes the air and gas.
  2. Step 2 Look to see what type of burner air adjustment you have: It will either be a barrel-shaped chamber or triangle-shaped with a cover plate.
  3. Step 3 Loosen the air-shutter screw on the barrel-shaped type. This screw is on the end of the barrel closest to the burner.
  4. Step 4 Open the shutter on the barrel-shaped type by turning it counterclockwise; close it by turning it clockwise. Opening it will add more air, which will make the flame higher; closing it will reduce the air in the mix and lower the flame.
  5. Step 5 Loosen the screw holding the plate on the triangle-shaped burner air adjustment. Don't remove the screw - it just needs to be loose enough to move the plate.
  6. Step 6 Move the plate so that the opening is either more open or more closed. More open will make the flame higher whereas more closed will lower the flame.
  7. Hope this is very helpful for you
  8. Best regards Michael

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.

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.

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.
