Adjusting the simmer flame on a gas stove

We recently installed a stove in our home. This stove required a conversion from natural gas to propane (LP). The installation instructions walked us through the process, which included changing the pressure of the regulator valve, installing smaller orifices in each of the burners, and adjusting the air flow for proper combustion.

When we were done, everything worked fine, except the range burners would not go lower than this:

Simmer flame before adjustment

This, the lowest flame, would still sustain a full boil in a large pot. That’s far too much heat for slow cooking for rice or stews.

I called Whirlpool to ask if there was any way to adjust the burners to give a lower flame. They asked a lot of questions about the conversion – had I changed the orifices, had I changed the regulator’s pressure, did I adjust the air flow – and suggested I call an appliance repair service to take a look at it.

While searching the web for answers, I came across this text on

One detail that’s commonly overlooked on these is the simmer settings. Each top burner valve has a small screw inside its shaft that can be adjusted to provide a low simmer. This adjustment must be made on each burner once the range has been converted, or ‘simmer’ settings will be far too high to be useful.

A small-bladed screwdriver is needed for most of these. If you can’t find one small enough, it’s possible to grind one down to fit. I’ve noticed some of the most recent ranges are using a larger screw that’s a lot easier to access, and that’s a welcome change.

You’d think if this were true for our stove, this information would have been in the installation instructions, or at the very least, that someone at Whirlpool would have mentioned that when I called. I had to pull off a knob and see for myself.

Remove the stove knob

What’s in the center of the shaft? It looks like a small, flat-head screw.

Simmer setting adjustment screw

Sure enough, none of our screwdrivers were narrow enough to fit into the shaft. I took a bench grinder to one that I wasn’t particularly attached to, and ground down the flared sides to make it fit into the shaft.

Narrow screwdriver

I put the knob back on the oven, lit the burner, turned the knob to its lowest setting, then pulled the knob and adjusted the screw. It didn’t take very much movement to significantly change the flame – maybe 1/2 turn from smallest to largest.

Adjusting the simmer flame

After the adjustment, the high flame is the same as before, but the low (simmer) flame is much, much lower.

Simmer flame after adjustment

CAUTION: If you set the simmer flame to be too low, the flame may go out. If this happens, the stove will continue to send a steady trickle of gas to the burner, which will not be burned. This is VERY DANGEROUS and could even lead to an explosion if it is allowed to continue. Make absolutely sure that the simmer flame will not extinguish, and monitor it closely while you are using it. A rule of thumb is to set the simmer flame so that it stays burning even if you blow on the burner (from a safe distance, of course). If you are able to extinguish the flame by blowing on it, it is probably set too low. If you are unsure, get a professional to make this adjustment for you.

You officially rock my socks for posting this. My husband and I just purchased a home and had the very same stove installed and converted from natural gas to propane.

After a week of burning everything from grilled cheese sandwiches to vegetables to bacon, sausage and pancakes (the last three were all done last night), and thus setting off my smoke alarm and deafening everyone in the house, I went to google to try and find an answer on how to adjust the simmer flame. Your site was the first result.

My husband is adjusting our stove right now. :) Thank you so much!

Thanks, we just had our new premiere gas range hooked up today and almost did backflips when we were cooking a pot of rice tonight … it was boiling instead of a low simmer like our old stove … we stacked the old stove top trivets on top of the new stove 3 high and it was still simmering too high to make a nice pot of rice … my wife said, well maybe we should sell it with a very sad look on her face … she’s been waiting months for this pro grade stove to arrive (on order) hahaha and really looking forward to it. A momentary massive disappointment … luckily I thought to google how to adjust the burners and found this!! Duh!! Thanks so much for posting this simple fix. (There was no information in the Premiere Range owners manual about it either, even in the trouble shooting section) I guess you’re supposed to call the dealer and have him come out and give him another hundred dollars to adjust the burners besides the $100 he charged to hook the hose on the back! Jeez! Anyway … thanks. :)

I adjusted the burners on my Jenn Aire after changing from a gas grill insert to a double burner inset. I didn’t know to I could adjust the simmer until I found this site. I thought I had bought the wrong burner set!

The svc tech came out and said there’s no way to adjust for a lower simmer. The company said the same by phone. Thanks to your post, I will no longer risk serious injury. I’ve had a few near misses with large pots of stew slipping off my make-shift spacer to get the pot further from the flame.
My small screwdriver shaft was not long enough, so I fashioned my own tool from a bamboo skewer with a razor blade. Thanks ever so much.

Hi, your advice is right on…i already have done this effective procedure years ago to my Sears gas range top…Now, perhaps you can help me with my problem with the same range (Sears Kenmore model#75885…propane gas fueled): Is there any way to adjust the broiler flame? Since i’ve had this unit, there is no difference between the “Hi” and “Low” broiler settings. In addition, the broiler is very inadequate (i usually have to take food outside to my Weber grill if i want it broiled (not fun in the snow) …it takes forever for the food to cook, and it never gets that just right “sear,” I can’t even broil a grapefruit or caramelize brown sugar. The broiler flame is not a “drawer” style, but rather is mounted on the top or “roof” of the oven box. Any advice you may have would be most gratefully appreciated!!!

Thank you very much!

My problem was the opposite. We converted from LP to Natural Gas, and the guy who did the conversion was not detail oriented. I showed him that our simmer setting was so low, the the flame goes out on one burner, and on the others, it is so low that it wouldn’t take much to blow them out. He opened the panel behind the knobs and showed me that there was no adjustment for the lowest setting, as he had seen on other stoves. His conclusion was that the Kenmore (Whirlpool) gas stoves have no adjustment.

After reading your post and looking at our knob shafts, I got a small screwdriver and turned the screw in each one until it was perfect. It only took about an eighth of a turn counter-clockwise to increase the flame to a reasonable simmer height.

Thank you so much. The gas company didn’t know how to adjust the flame, so I’ve been using an electric skillet when I didn’t want to cook on high heat. I finally decided to research the issue and found your instructions. Although I couldn’t see a screw on my stove, under the knob, I decided to try anyway. I bought a precision screw driver set and put the 3/32 flathead on the base and it wouldn’t reach all the way to the screw. So – I took it off the base and inserted it into the burner knob stem and it reached with a little poking out. I took the base and (without the gold screw part), fit the notch on the base onto the notch of the tip; pushed and turned. Amazing – I can now simmer things on my gas range.

I seem to have the opposite problem on my Kenmore 665 502210 model, using natural gas. The burners do not go high enough to boil in a reasonable amount of time AND the broil function does not work. I see the spark ignite the broil when first lit, but it then goes out. Bake function seems to work OK.

Using a Whirlpool troubleshooting guide, I checked the Gas Distribution Valve. Resistance readings for the Broil and Cooktop solenoids were good.

What’s the most likely problem–bad Distribution Valve or low gas pressure to the stove?


Comment from kevin
Time: November 27, 2011, 9:43 pm

Hi Craig, I would first check the gas pressure to the stove, then the regulator. Once the proper pressures have been confirmed, I’d troubleshoot the top burners first — they’re the simplest — by confirming that the correct top burner orifice “spuds” are installed and then by adjusting the venturi airflow. Your broiler problem could certainly be a bad distribution valve, but low gas pressure could be the root cause of both problems, so I wouldn’t spend time or $ on troubleshooting the broiler problem until you’re sure you have the right pressure. Hope this helps, Kevin

After reading through the comments on this site, we removed the knobs on the range and there was no sign of a screw to adjust, but with a torch and a small screwdriver, we moved the rubber round the knob fixing to one side, and located a screw.

First, let me say that I have never commented on anything. This morning for some reason I decided to search online to see if by some chance someone had ever said anything about the problem of excessive flame on low setting. I have had this range for four years having purchased the stove new and also having the propane jets installed for me. I have noted that high-end gas ranges have an extremely low flame and even gone so far as to price some of them. I cannot afford anything like that and have always liked the Whirlpool except for this one problem. When I searched I had little hope of finding any information. To my surprise the first site that I landed on was this one. I can’t believe how simple the correction was. Thank you for such a great post. The pictures and explanations are excellent. both my wife and I are thrilled with the results.

Before I found your website, I notified the Coleman company. They said that their camping stoves only had a medium and high flame, no simmering flame. I am DELIGHTED to report that my two-burner stove now has two simmering flames!

I just received my new Whirlpool gas range yesterday and was so upset when I saw the huge yellow/orange flame on high and slightly smaller yellow/orange flame on low. I tried the small flat screw driver trick, although it did allow me to have a actual simmer on low the high setting was still 4″ of orange flame. After finding 5 tiny fittings, called Jets, that came in a bag with the manual I decided to try changing one burner to see if the stove was not set up for propane…which it was not. Once I changed the Jets on each stove top burner and the oven element it was a perfect blue flame. From what I discovered, Natural Gas jets have a larger hole than the propane ones. It is most likely something that a technician from Whirlpool, or whoever you purchased it from should do, but being that I live on a 21 sq. mi. island in the Caribbean, we do not have a WP technician here! I also found a gas leak where the flexible hose connects, but two fittings in, which would be a mistake from the factory. It was not correctly attached with PTFE tape. So yes, me (female) was able to figure it out. And have taken all the safety measures as YES, if you are not sure of what you are doing and have access to a technician…do it. I still plan on making any other small adjustments with the flat screwdriver. Many thanks for your most helpful post that got me on the right track to sort out my new gas range!

Once I found the adjustment screws at the base of the turn knobs I now have a well-behaved stove top that doesn’t singe off my eyebrows.
Again, Thanks for your post.

I just tried this and it works ! For about 10 years I’ve been turning the flame down to a low simmer by turning it almost all the way to “OFF”. To say the least, it was a very tricky procedure to set the burner to simmer. I’m not sure why I tried looking online about this today but I’m glad I did ! I can’t thank you enough for your research and diligence and for posting the fix online.

Normally knobs like these are friction fit and easy to get back on. You do have to align the flat edge of the shaft with the same flat edge inside the knob. Good luck.

Thank you so much. My service man came Monday to fix my range and didn’t have a screwdriver long enough to fit so rescheduled for next Monday. I was talking with my son and he told me to “google” it and with your help, it was a snap. Took me less than 5 min. As a single senior female, it made me feel proud that I can still do things for myself. Now, as for the repair man, cancel my call. Thank you, thank you!!!

I bought a Whirlpool ignition gas range and was upset that the flame was too high on low. I went on your site to see how to adjust the flame which I found quite easily. However, I found that if you turn the knob back to high the blank area between high and off allows you to adjust the flame to simmer. No more watching the pot.

Comment from kevin
Time: April 25, 2014, 8:13 pm

Hi Susan, I tried to contact you directly but the email bounced with “no such address.” I am concerned that those screws beside the shaft may not be flame adjusting screws, but rather, those screws might be holding the valve together or securing it in place. It would be really bad — like enormous and uncontrollable fire bad — if the valve fell apart because it was accidentally disassembled while the gas was turned on. I would strongly advise you not to turn those screws without confirmation from the stove manufacturer or a competent repair person that those are in fact flame adjusting screws. My own experience and the 100+ comments on this page lead me to believe it’s common to have the flame adjusting screw in the center of the knob shaft. If it’s not there, then without any documentation stating otherwise, I’d conclude the flame is not adjustable. Best regards, Kevin

Hi Mari, this adjustment is normally used to reduce the flame when the burner is on the lowest setting. If you’re trying to increase the flame on the highest setting, that problem is likely elsewhere. Best regards, Kevin

Comment from Glenn
Time: October 1, 2014, 5:51 am

I’ve just installed a 5 burner KitchenAid cooktop. Installation instructions actually specify the small flame adjustment procedures. Kevin’s web posting does a really good job of explaining the procedures.

Note that in my 5 burner cooktop, the four corner burners each adjust with a small screw located inside the shaft (2mm screw driver blade).

Here’s the reason I am posting this note…
My 5th burner – which is actually a fancy combination of two concentric burners – adjusts each section independently. The adjustment for this combination burner is done with somewhat larger screw heads which are beside the control shaft – not inside the shaft.
My KitchenAid burner control has a rubber shield which also needs to be removed before the side adjustment screws can be seen.

So – this may be similar to the design found by a previous poster for her “normal” design burner heads – each perhaps having one adjustment screw off to the side of the control shaft instead of inside the shaft.

Also note: some burner designs are just not going to be particularly good as simmer burners. However adjusting the minimum flame size gives you a chance of making the best of the burners.

We have a 20″, bottom-of-the-line, Avanti oven. A metal barrette with the tip cut off worked perfectly as a flat-tipped screwdriver.

The best advice! We just bought an Amana AGG222 LP gas stove and our contractor was great–installed it, converted it from natural gas but didn’t know how to regulate the burner flame heights . Your pix and step by step instructions saved the day. Removing the knobs, inserting a long thin screwdriver , a few turns and all was as it should be. The instruction manuals need to highlight this info in bold type, along with the standard installation info. (I actually did find tips in the Amana manual online, but that was 12 hours after finding your site!!!!)

The larger burner and the largest burner scare the heck out of me because the flames are so high, so i avoid using them, should i adjust the flames on this burners with your method. Also they leave burning stains on my pots which they are not difficult to remove but my sink is black when i finish washing them. I have a whirlpool and it looks just like the domenstration .

Sylvia, if your stove’s flames are too high on all heat settings, this adjustment won’t fix that. Your stove may have incorrect burner orifices or an incorrect or broken pressure regulator. The adjustment described on this page is for the simmer (lowest) flame setting only. Best regards, Kevin

There are not enough “thank yous” to express my gratitude. I have a brand new Viking 8 burner cooktop which came fitted for NG even though we stipulated LP. A plumber did the conversion, but the flame on the lowest setting was far too high. I emailed Viking with this issue and they did not respond. I wrote a letter sent by USPS and still no response. Now that I saw your fix and applied it, I have a properly functioning cooktop. So grateful!

Hi Kevin I have a fridgidaire lp stove that I’ve had for 10 years or so.the problem I have is two burners are pretty high and two front burners are are low and the front right won’t stay lit it on and off while the striker is going lighting only half the burner at a time! I cleaned the orifice and it still does it .I’m afraid to cook with it because it goes out sometimes ? Any ideas would be appreciated thanks

Comment from kevin
Time: September 13, 2015, 10:05 pm

Hi Darla, I would be afraid to cook with that too! I wonder if there is some obstruction in the pipes between the burners? The fact that two burners are high indicates good gas flow, and I’m assuming all four burners are fed by the same regulator, so that suggests everything is fine from the regulator on back. I’d look at everything in the path between the high burners and the low burners to try and figure out what’s different. Best regards, Kevin

A question last year from Mike about adjusting the flame on a built in Bosch cook top was brought up. I too have a problem with my Bosch propane cook top. 1 burner is too low even on its highest setting. No adjustment screws in the shaft are visible. It appears a red rubber gasket is at the bottom of the shaft. Any ideas?

Thanks so much for the awesome tip. My problem is that my stove is from the 1930’s and the shaft under the burner knob is solid. There is a simmer setting that worked well, until the gas company upped the pressure and we had to install a pressure regulator. Now the simmer setting is too low and the flame goes out. Any thoughts about where the simmer adjustment might be on this old stove?

Comment from kevin
Time: September 13, 2015, 9:49 pm

Hi Elyse, sorry, I’ve only seem the adjustment in the center of the shaft, which seems to be the most common. Others have found adjustment screws on or near the regulator, but I would strongly advise against turning any screws unless you really know what you’re doing; you really don’t want to cause a gas leak. Maybe someone else will see this and chime in? Good luck and please follow up here if you find it so that others may benefit. Best regards, Kevin

Marriage saved !!! The wife said she couldn’t get the flame to a low,low. I tried this fix and it worked great. The only thing I might add is that on two of the burners I had to hold the stem slightly while making the adjustment. I didn’t notice that while turning the adjustment screw I was also turning the stem. The other problem we had was that while trying the new oven I notice heat leaking by the door and seal. When I checked closer I found that the top of the oven door was hitting a screw that held the guard in place that the stove top burner knobs go through. Finally discovered that the door hinges weren’t properly seated. I removed the oven door a few times and put back and after the third try the door closed correctly. I am now a hero in the eyes of my wife.

I don’t need to tell you that you rock! because this is the largest number of thank you comments I’ve ever seen.
But the question remains: why don’t the stove people tell you this. I imagine it’s because they fear that the phenomena mentioned in your caution will leave them liable for explosions–but then why don’t the delivery people do it when the stove is installed? Or, there must be some way around their liability fears. Look at the number of people who’ve had this problem!!

I’m feeling really fortunate to have found your site a day after my new Samsung duel fuel range was installed. Eggs were scorching on lowest setting. This worked–Except one of the burners, the middle size, is stuck. Turning the screw clockwise doesn’t do anything, so I tried counter clockwise and now it’s stuck on high. Even if I turn the screw back clockwise. If I turn it far enough it won’t turn any further but flame doesn’t go down, unless I turn it far enough that the stem turns, then it goes off completely. any suggestions? Did I mess up? Time to call for service? The other burners are now perfect-thanks!

Does this fix work on a regular natural gas stove? We have a 2015 Whirlpool with the 2 power burners in front. Can’t stop everything from burning on low.

Hi Bill, this adjustment screw is not something that is added during the propane conversion, it is either present on that model of gas stove (whether LP or natural gas) or it isn’t. Having not seen your stove, I’d defer to the service tech who has. Best regards, Kevin

Adding our name to the AWESOME group. Purchased a Kenmore (Frigidaire) last month. Gas, I converted it to Propane, and everything went smoothly expect for the simmer. One was so high, it kept a constant boil. I slid the knob off to find a gold open end tube looking at me. I took a 3-inch nail and ground the end to mimic a flat-head screwdriver, then fished it inside the tube about an inch/inch and a half, after a little bit of movement this way and that, I felt the nail blade fall into the slot. Minor turn and went from boiling to simmer. Thank you for taking the time to post this, such an easy solution that accompanying instructions and repair reps don’t seem to want to share (or don’t know to be able to share). Happy Holidays.

Yes, we are using LP and the installer with the gas company installed the conversion kit. He, nor the owner’s manual said nothing of the fine-tuning screws in the center of each knob post.

Still relevant in 2017 – thanks for posting this, a decade ago! So glad I bought that screwdriver kit for working on phones and laptops, the 1.8mm did the trick, nothing larger would work (on my ‘Roper by Whirlpool’ stove). No more burned food!

Let me be the first to thank you for such a great post in 2018! I am a serious cook. Over 10 years ago I splurged spent a small fortune on a gas range that I thought would be my dream appliance. I especially looked forward to using the 4 contiguous burners for my larger pans. Had it professionally installed and was shocked at the lack of a medium setting much less a simmer flame. My options were high or higher. Despite having authorized service people out three different times, nothing improved. I was able to do a work around that made two burners usable, but the other two were not amenable to my fix. So for all these years I have had a super expensive stove with little more utility than a 2 burner camp stove. Most of my meals had to be prepared in two stages. I finally decided I could stand it no more–over the holidays I had to use table top induction cookers to take up the slack–but decided to see if I could modify the stove somehow and found your site. OMG I simply cannot thank you enough! It works!

Thank you!!! We moved into our new house a month ago and my wife has told me several times that everything is perfect EXCEPT that the flame won’t go low enough on our Samsung (LP Gas) range. I read your post and checked, and sure enough, we have the same type of low simmer adjustment that you described. Now everything is perfect!

Not sure if I damaged anything trying this method of adjusting the low setting on my kenmore elite duel fuel range. I originally turned the screw right and it did nothing to the low flame setting. This morning I tried again and turned it to the left and found success however when replacing the know it was not ligned up properly. I then proceeded to put the screw back to the original position so the knob would line up properly and know my flame is at the same level on all three settings. I then tried holding the post that the know fits onto and tried turning the screw but the flame still would not adjust. Any suggestions on what may have gone wrong? Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide…the husband is not very pleased with me at the moment. 😐

Hi Susan, that is a puzzle. By email we confirmed that Kenmore’s installation instructions show the same adjustment procedure for this range. I’m wondering if you may have accidentally stripped the threads on the adjustment screw, since it no longer affects the flame?

But as soon as I put the knob back on and went to turn it up/off, the lowest setting popped back to its previous level. Any ideas? I have a Kenmore Elite.

It is a shame that the manufacturers do not make the important information clear. Sometimes it is not even present. a small screwdriver should be furnished and which way to turn for increase and decrease of flame. They have pages and pages of useless information, and neglect to make the critical information available, and clear. I have been doing major appliance repair for over 40 years, and alot of good times. But the last 20 yrs or so , the greed has gotten worse. It is almost as bad as buying a car. I must go now. I retired last month and have to go take a nap. There is some golden stuff on instructional you tubes, as i am sure you all know. And do not bother calling the manufacturers to get information; like any one else that has a horse in the race, they do not want to give anything away, that they have a chance of selling you. I guess this what our corporate model has come to.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! Was so angry that my new stove burners wouldn’t go down to simmer except for one of the back ones. The specs on this range even show that only one of the back burners is meant for really low flame cooking. What???? When I do a large pot of chili or whatever on the front burner I don’t want to be switching it to the tiny burner in the back. ALL of the burners should go from High to Simmer. Was about to call the dealer to see if they knew of something that could be done. Was also going to contact Amana (which I will still do) but decided to try the internet to see what others had to say about it. Luckily I clicked on your posting and now all 4 burners go from High to Simmer!! Simple fix! I had one screwdriver that I almost threw out because it was a bit damaged….and that’s the one that worked! Wish I had known about this before because my old range had a burner that would blow out easily when I had it on Simmer. Always made me nervous. Watched it carefully. I am so happy that I don’t have to worry about things burning when they are supposed to simmering. THANKS AGAIN!!

Just wanted to let you know that you literally changed someone’s life today! Funny how it’s the little things in life that usually the game changers or (in this instance) life changers. I have a friend of mine that I met after she had started converting a hickory shed into a tiny home. Unfortunately for her, she got her worst nightmare with the first guy that she hired. She has no clue bout building and when I showed up and saw what this quack was doing I literally threw him off the property along with his tools after I took him to the first door I saw and asked him in a pissed and confused voice “what’s plum?!” He then said, in the same pissed and confused voice; “What do you mean?! There’s no plumbing for doors?!… and you know how the rest goes. I’ll spare ya’ll the horror story.
Anyway, all that to say. I have also been living a night mare, as I am the poor soul that had to go through and redo ALL this guys work. Which, brings us back to the simmer adjustment. You literally made my day and my girls day today!!! This has been the first experience when we were able to find out what we needed to do to fix something on her place… at least as far as electrical and plumbing repairs go. Let alone it was the final repair on her place. We were literally between tears of relief and joys of laughter from how ironic it was that finally on the last dman thing, we fix it quick and easy without and unforeseen issues. So THANK YOU!!!

I have a set of really small types of screw drivers, etc, and I bet those small pieces can be found at maybe Harbor Freight or Amazon. Unfortunately, unscrewing didn’t change my flame height at all. I heard somewhere that something maybe should have been changed at the gas line connection at installation. My stove is a slide-in with a dishwasher immediately across from it, so crawling down behind it to check something on a GAS line that I’ve never seen is above my pay grade.
