GE Profile Gas Cooktop, Model JGP975SEKSS

The two simmer burners on my cooktop burn too hot (flames are too high). How can I adjust this?
Thanks!

    I have the same problem with my brand new GE Profile gas cooktop. The flames are so high, everything burns. Even the lowest "simmer" burner boils everything. I called the plumber (our cooktop uses a propane converter system) and was told that there was no way to decrease the amount of gas flowing to the cooktop. Help!!! Everything is burning!

    This cooktop is a piece of junk. Ours is less than two years old; we bought the house from the previous owner and moved in in July. The flames can't be adjusted. They're too high. We burn a lot of food. We've had other problems with it. Right now, after cleaning the burners and putting them back, the lock light won't go off and there is a LOUD buzzing noise when we try to use it. Man, I HATE to put more money into this thing to have it repaired. We plan to replace it ASAP!

Remove the front panel to find where the gas injectors enter the burner tubes you will see they are cut away and have a screw holding an outer ring which is adjustable, open them up more to get more air in .

How can I adjust the flame on the simmer burner to be lower? It seems to be too much flame for a simmer. Otherwise cook top is working great.


Hi,
Where the gas comes into the stove, there is a regulator. Have a service person check the incomeing gas pressure after the regulator with a manometer. Sounds like you are getting too much gas pressure to the range.

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.

I use one of the large burners most of the time and the minimum setting(simmer or ?) seems to have increased over last 4-5 years so that I have to turn burner off and let food cool, then turn on again,...


I am not sure of this Model but most of the Gas Rail Cocks ( Taps) when you remove the knob you will find either a small hole drilled into the spindle This would be the Low Burner (simmer Rate) Adjustment there would be a small screwdriver requiredto do this , if its not there ,then there is usually a small screw on the side of the tap under the Knob Hope this will help you
