Hi, Just moved in to a house that has a GE gas stove
that won't boil water. I've tried all four burners. The flame is not enough to bring even 2 quarts of water to a boil after 25 minutes. Instead it just evaporates and gets tiny bubbles around the perimeter of the pot.
Called GE with model and serial number and they described the following regarding this specific model.
Left Rear Burner = 8,000 BTU
All other burners = 7,000 BTU
Center burner = 6,000 BTU
They said it should boil 4 CUPS of water in 7 minutes.........(Who boils only 4 cups of water)????
It's a model JGBS09PEHIWW
My question: Is there a way to change out jets or increase flame on this model?
GE says no there is not. They also said this model hasn't been made in about 10 years although it looks new to me. Really a very bottom of the line stove. Doesn't even have a broiler.
