propane cooktop burners too hot

GE Profile Gas-on-glass cooktop. 5 burners (two special lowest simmer burners).

Propane conversion done by installer, who states he has adjusted it correctly. Yet, on the special simmer burners, even large pots of soup burn. Smally simmer jobs regularly boil dry, even when covered.

We have read the manual and can not find the pictured adjustment screws for adjusting the flame.

We found on the GEProfile website that propane conversions sometimes need special burners. We managed to get through to them one about this and they sent us the burner 'replacement kit', but what they sent is idential to what is already on the gastop.

Repeated efforts to talk to a GE technician have failed (hours on hold and over 30 calls over 6 months). When we finally spoke to Sears where we purchased it, they have referred us to you.

Help please.

A simmer function sounds like it would be great to have on a range but overheating would be a concern. Since you have exhausted the available resources, this is a good place to turn for help. One thing that may help the expert provide a better answer is to add the model number of your range to this thread. I found another question on propane burner issues and attached the link below. You can check the information attached if you like to see if it will help while you wait for the expert.
