When the cooktop was new it was built for NATURAL gas. Make sure FIRST that it has been converted to L/P (PROPANE GAS). Then on some models you can adjust flame height by removing the knobs from the stem and taking a very small blade screwdriver and while holding the stem in the LOWEST setting adjust accordingly to your desired height.

Due this test, turn on all burners on high, as you turn them on, does the problem burner change in volume or size of flame? If all burners are on and you only have issues with that single burner you need to replace that burner valve only. If you have issues with all burners when the all are on, replace the regulator.
I hope this helps and leads you in the right direction.
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.
hi gud day...try to remove the nozzle inside the burner base using open wrench(depend the size)the use vacium,put the vacium were the place of the nozzle,i think there some dirt inside..then return it again the nozzle to check if it works,,if not replace the regulator for the 2nd sollution.
Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.
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
We have an older Thermador Gas Cooktop type range. It was working fine until the cleaning crew came in, then all the burner igniters were clicking when turning on a single burner. I solved the problem by cleaning off the igniters. I first of course unplugged the power. Then I took a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. I then went ahead and scraped and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. I then vacuumed up the mess. My burners all worked great after this. Hope this helps!
