My wife complains that our Magic Chef burners are full on or full off, no adjustment in between! Are there any practical solutions short of replacing the stove?


Do the best you can with what you have to work with.

Portable induction appliance. NuWave or likewise...but you need 110 volt so that means shore power is required.

Are they propane burners or some kind of electric burner? Have you checked to see if the only full on or full off is actually the case? How far do the knobs turn between full and low? If they are say 3/4 turn, what happens if you light a burner on full, and then turn the knob half of it's travel? Does the flame seem the same height as full? Maybe the stove is slow to respond, does the flame drop in size after a minute or two when you turn the knob?

I’d suggest checking the stove gas pressure. Really should be an annual maintenance check.

Many (well, at least some) RV propane stoves don't have "official" settings between high and off for some of the burners. That doesn't mean you can't turn the control knob halfway between off and high and get a lower setting, though it make take some care to adjust it finely in that zone. The control is just a valve, after all.

[emoticon] Hi, on my three burner stove top, the front burner is the only one that is adjustable. The back two burners are basically on or off, but you can adjust them by barely turning the knob. As mentioned in the previous post.

Look at the flame and turn the knob. It's not a linear adjustment, but it is adjustable. At least that's how it is with our Magic Chef range.

Same problem on my Suburban stove, it does adjust but it's super sensitive for the low range. 2/3 of the travel is full power and the last bit is medium and low.

That's ridiculous. They should all be adjustable.
