Unhappy gas ccoktop - flame of two of the 4 burners became smaller all of a sudden

I have a Kitchenaid Stove top, model: KGCT365BBL4. It has two small and two large burners. We just noticed yesterday that the flame size of 2 large burners became much smaller than used to be at the highest position. Its about the size of that of the medium position before. The size of the flame gradually changed to its normal minimum size when the knob turned to the lowest position. Whatís more puzzled is that this seemed to happen to both large burners at the some time. Flame size of the 2 small burners did not change from before. What could have happened? How can I restore the flame size? Iíve opened the burner box and did not find anything I can adjust.

Please advise, thank you.

Hello Ed. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

I'll have to speculate here and offer a possible cause.

May be specific only to the appliance. The regulator installed on the appliance is a possibility. Ask about such problem type by going to a local appliance repair parts store in your area. And call the manufacturer regarding any known issues of that type.

Might be the gas volume supply. You did not mention what type fuel is used. Nat Gas or Propane. Either may be a supply problem based on the suppliers equipment. Have them come to the house and verify their equipment is working properly. Especially if there are other gas appliances in the house that may or may not be working correctly that you're not aware of.

"Be sure the electrical power and the gas supply to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever the appliance is moved and/or a repair includes any connection of a gas part."
