Gas ranges have the high grates to allow air to flow underneath the pot. Smaller grates will make the problem worse not better. Try using hot water to start with and regularly clean the surface of the burner. Oil sometimes clogs the holes the gas comes out of. There are also adjustments that can be made to raise your flame a little but I do not suggest doing this without a working knowledge of gas products.

Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.
Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.
Do you have a filtration system in your basement? If Yes that could be your problem and that's where filter is if not try getting a britter water filter that snaps on your fauset if that doesn't work throw the pot away good luck
This could be a problem with the gas regulator, gas supply pressure or the burners need to be cleaned. Here are the cleaning instructions for the burners. If you are still having problems with the burners I would recommend having the gas pressure & regulator checked.
Your igniter lead is shorted by some foreign object and needs to be cleaned before it kills the spark module. This usually happens when you have a pot that boils over spilling liquids and solids on the igniter contacts. Check the igniter area on the side that doesn't pop to locate the igniter tip, then find the exact match to it on the other side and clean it off with a toothbrush and alcohol.
wow never heard of that one.
what if when grate was cast,air bubbles inside of grate were formed,[fluke] and expanded and blew.
try with other grates,but put shield over grate somehow,like chicken wire,and hold on to stove with bricks or something.ps. stay back.
that sounds like a claim to me.
The burners are designed to cycle on and off, it is technology that helps to keep from burning food. If you are using the correct pan to burner size ratio and high setting on your burner, the water should boil in the normal time. Don't watch the pot (just kidding)
you nailed it,you have to clean the burner ,and yes dont be afraid to soak it in soapy water in the sink to clean,the holes around the burner are blocked,could be from an accidental boil over,also clean the others while your at it,let dry and reinstall please rate this solution thanks
Smooth tops take a little geting used to than a coil top range....Make sure you have good flat cookware. NO GLASS COOKWARE. (ie vision ware.) Once the burner is set to high, it has to heat the glass, then the pot, so it does take about 2 min loger to boil, If you want to simmer, then i suggest bringing the item to a rapid boil, and then cutting back the heat to below the 1 on the range. and adjusting from there. All smooth top glass ranges do work in this manner. Most people can adjust to the switch, but not everyone can. there really is no problem with your range. BTW i work at sears, and i am surprised that no one helped you.
