    Default <GE Profile XL44 >Stove top burner poor/weak flame

    Model Number: XL44
    Brand: GE
    Age: More than 10 years

    Hi,

    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?

    Thanks.

    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
    Model# JGBP35GEP4WG

    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.

    Thank you.

    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.
