Sounds like the regulator is installed backwards. There is no adjustments that are made. Make sure you use a licensed plumber for any service. If you need help, call 866-844-6566 for assistance.

You didn't say what model of range. However, on many of them you have to remove the control knobs to begin with. Be sure the gas valve is off. Look for couple of screws under the front or behind the knobs. Unfortunately, some models require removal of that front panel where the knobs are before you can reach the screws that hold the top down. Some Maytag models are like that.
First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap. If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

Slide-in ranges and freestanding ranges use the same installation techniques, with one minor difference: the slide-in range rests on the edge of your counter top. Removing a slide-in range is not difficult but will require a friend to assist. Removing the storage drawer from the slide-in range first will give you access to the power cord and gas shut-off valve, if your unit uses gas
Pull the bottom storage drawer out as far as it will slide. Lift up the front of the drawer and unhook the back of the drawer from the drawer guide. Pull the drawer away from the range.
Reach under the slide-in range and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Turn the gas valve to the off position on the house line coming from the wall.
Lift the top of the slide-in range with the assistance of your helper, and pull the range forward enough that you can access the back of the range.
Go behind the range and locate the connection between the house gas line and the range gas line. Disconnect the flexible gas line from the house gas line with a pair of channel lock pliers or a pipe wrench.
Lift up on the rear of the slide-in range while your partner lifts the front. Slide the range out of the cabinet opening and out of the house. Lifting the unit will prevent unnecessary damage to your counter tops.
If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck
You have one or more spark switches defective or a loose wire to the switches.
They are located on each gas valve stem.
Yes they should be replaced for safety.
In the interim you can match light the surface burners.
We have the same problem constantly. We have discovered that if we disconnect from electrical outlet, we "reboot the interior control" and it starts again. Said to say, tonight it doesn't seem to be working. I hate these! I'm going to go look for an "old fashioned gas range."/
OK sista62, here is your solution. The problem is that the thermocouple that controls the valve supplying gas to the ovenjet is not working. A new thermocouple is available from http://blgas.com.au/online/category4_1.htm and will cost about AUD$40.00.
The control valve is located right behind the knob on the frontpanel (the centre one that controls both the oven and the grill.) You will see two small copper tubes going into the control valve. These are the thermocouple tubes, one comes from the griller and the other from the ovenjet. All the other knobs only have one thermocouple for each of the topplate burners.
If you want to test before you buy, disconnect the thermocouple from from one of the topplate burners and connect it to the one for the oven control valve. Now turn on the topplate burner and keep it going by holding the knob down on the front panel for this burner. Now light the oven burner and it should stay on.
