Question about GE JGBP88SEKSS Gas Kitchen Range
This stove was just delivered on 3-4. I converted it to LP myself. I am a diesel mechanic w/ 20 years on various fuels including LP. I feel the burner flame heights are way too low. All are at least 1" below the grates, except the super boil burner which touches the grates. Burner flames are perfect blue color and the exact same height whether I have 1 or all burners on. The gas company doesnt feel it is a supply issue since the old stove worked fine and they believe my conversion was done correctly, they said if I screwed it up the flames would be too high/yellow. One of their techs said some of the new stoves he has worked on do have flames well below the grates. It seems to take way too long to boil water. Does this sound like it is correct operation or not? GE hasnt been much help so far
Sounds right long as you did the conversion okay did you change the spring in the reg ? lp gas does burn lower than nat gas smaller blue flame . you could see if the aeration can be adjusted to the burners You could also check the pressure at the burners lp working pressure is 14in wg .
You could check the reg outside . That's all I got .

SOURCE: 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.

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.
