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


How do you check your stove pressure annually?

Mine is adjustable, my rig is a 2002 so probably a 2005 stove. If you don't have the manual, it will be available on line. Read the manual and see what it says.

If there isn't any adjustment for the flame, NO, there isn't any other way of getting what you want, if the manual says it is adjustable, you need to use the stove and see if it adjusts according to the manual. If you can't adjust it, buy her a new stove.

Where is Doug when we need him or Chris. They are pros and know what way is up.

Thanks all. Sorry I forgot to say, but as some of you surmised, it is a propane stove. Yes, two back burners are on-off and front (the large one) is adjustable. Checks with what the manual says, but my gosh! it would seem so easy for the mfr to make them all adjustable.

I guess my question is whether or not I could simply replace the back burners with adjustable ones.

I guess I can contact the mfr, but I have often found this resourceful bunch can come up with solutions which seem to elude the manufacturer!

No manufacturer is going to condone replacing the valves with a different style not approved and designed for the particular appliance, regardless of whether it works safely or not.

As a practical matter, on the stoves that I've seen, the difference between the front and back burners is usually just the control valve; the burner proper is the same (though the back ones do of course have longer supply tubes). Replacing the back control valves with ones intended for the front burner would in theory make them adjustable as well, but it also would mean the back burners give a higher maximum output and thereby may pose a fire hazard as they are closer to countertops and walls and other combustible surfaces than the front middle burner.

I'd live with setting the control between off and high, or replace the stove if you have a lot of excess cash sitting around that you would rather not have cluttering up the space.

Certainly makes sense, but I am left asking why aren't low output burners also adjustable? Its not that we want higher output, just the ability to control the flame,

But I can clearly see that the consensus is to just hunker down and put up with the problem!

Nuff said!

Huuuuh ... what on Earth?

Our good old Winnebago Spirit Class C has a 3-burner Magic Chef propane cooktop and (of course) all three burners are adjustable .... just like in our stick and brick house propane cooktop.

This world sure has some funny stuff that folks wind up having to put up with. [emoticon]

Must have just been the option I chose.. Doesn't bother me any. I don't cook that much on High burner any way; simmer on the back burner. Wouldn't really want a HIGH burner next to the back wall.
