The flame is too high on my GE Profile gas cooktop


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.

Want to adjust the knob to make the flame smaller than @ current setting??


pull of the knob
put a smill flashlight down the selector shaft
you should see a small adjustment screw
probably a tiny flat head
very small turns
start from the lowest setting if you start from the highest you could loose your low flame below the grid
always adjust fromt the lower settings

some of these units are factory set and cannot be adjusted by the consumer,,,,unless you want to install new adjustable gas valvews

It's wasn't the perfect solution but I removed all the burner caps and cleaned each one with a tooth brush. Then using a metal trussing pin, I poked through the flame holes to clean them. Noticed better flame output from both.

Low flame from gas cooktop


you can adjust the flames as follows pull a knob and look in the end of the brass peice you will see a small screw first you have to find a screw driver that will fit then with a pair of pliers hold the outer peice with the burner on and turn the screw one way rasies other lowers ideal adj is to turn buner all the way up then fast down if flame goes out to low keep working like that till flame is low but doesnt go out

Burners only work half way


Remove the burner knobs, inside of each shaft is a straight slot screw adjustment, use a flshlight to see it. Sears has screwdrivers this small.While holding the shaft with a pair of pliers turn the screw in the shaft, it will be hard to turn, this is normal.
Continue doing this until you obtain the desired flame setting.
