<GE Profile XL44 >Stove top burner poor/weak flame
More than 10 years
I am experience very poor flame on the 4 stove top burners. The flame contains some yellow and is weak. It requires a long time to boil or cook anything, since the gas usage has gone up.
Other issues: 2/4 burners emit gas when lighted. Although I hear clicking when turning on the burner, all burners require a match.
Should I fix it or replace it?

XL44 isn't it.
Occured at the same time, different times?

Poor flames, taking too long to cook, ignition problem, some kind of gas emited problem....might be a good idea to look at some new ones.

Sorry for the vague information. Here are some additional information:
GE XL44 Self-Cleaning Gas Range
2 or 4 burners emit gas odor when used. There are soots at the bottom of burners.
Below is a picture of the high out burner flame.
If the gas range can not be fixed, do you have any recommendation for a basic gas range for my parents.

Frigidaire makes some decent gas ranges...

Flame looks like a pressure issue....regulator, stem valve, both.

Thanks Jeff for quick response.
Do you have the part# and location for the regulator and stem value. Is it a DIY or should I hire a professional?
Have a great weekend!

Stem valves are under the knobs....high, low, lite. Regulator is where the main gas supply enters the range.
