Jennair Gas Range

I have a Jennair gas kitchen stove. When I move the flame setting from high to medium, the flame level decreases from high to low then to medium. I am not sure why or how to fix the problem. All the burners behave in this manner.

That doesn't sound like a problem I have ever run across before.

Have the controls always operated this way ?

There may not be a repair other than changing all the gas controls which would be extremely cost prohibitive. Do you have the model number ?

Not sure it would help, and just throwing it out until you post what PJ asked for, but if you remove the cap on each burner you will note there is a screw adjustment way down in the center hole. With a skinny screwdriver, flat blade, you can adjust the flame slightly. Maybe it will adjust it enough to allow proper operation.

Since it is happening on all the burners, it could be incoming pressure problems. Is this operated off LP or NG?

I was wrong. This is only happening to the left side of the stove. The right side burners operate fine.

The model # is CG200B

This is a Natural Gas stove

Thanks...

The cooktop uses a common gas regulator for all four burners so the only thing that could cause the problem you're having is the gas valve......or in your case two of them.

Pretty strange to have two valves go bad like that. I guess the choice is to live with them as they are or replace them. I left you a link below to a parts center.

Part # 7 in link page is the left side gas valve(s). Part # 704505K. Google the part number for the best prices.
