Low flame on griddle burnner
« on: April 01, 2012, 02:30:42 PM »
GE model JGB87SEMSS
Is there a way to adjust the burner for the center griddle?
On the highest setting the burner just doesn't seem to be high enough.
A friend with the same stove has a higher flame on his center burner.
Orfice is clean and other than the burner not being very high it works fine.
Thanks

I can not get this model number to show anything specific. It keeps crossing to other numbers.
Remove the valve knob and look down the shaft of the valve,there may be a small screw slot used to adjust the flame size.

Thanks....

Most center grill range flames are only 3/16 to 1/4 inch high.
How high is yours?

Id say about.
This has been like this since new and the range is about 2yr old.
I guess seeing my friends flame, that I think is alot higher made me think it's just an adjustment.
It would be nice to be able to cook pancakes etc a little quicker.   :-\

This stove does not have adjustment. It has fixed orifices and you could damage this stove if you try to lift the top.
