Question about Whirlpool Cooktops
Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.
hope that helped.

I had similar problem.Solved by Miele tech by placing rice grain sized wad of paper towel inside knob so it sits slightly higher on the valve shaft.

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.

SOURCE: the knob on my gas cooktop does not work press down do a quarter turn and I have ignition, the knob is meant to turn more so the burner stays lit and to control flame but the knob will not turn
let off the knob pressure a bit to see if you can then turn the knob
call a gas fitter as gas is not in the DIY domain
