My 1992 GE gas stove has all 4 top burners the same size. I'd like to
have 1 higher BTU burner (for stir-fry etc.) and 1 lower BTU burner
(for very slow simmering) to replace 2 of the present burners. Has
anyone tried to do this, with their gas stove? I assume the regulators
get replaced too. Or do I have to get a whole new stove to get the
different sizes of burners?
Actually, no. The stove was installed in my studio in 1992 as part of
future plans to live there and rarely used until we downsized last year
and moved into the studio from the suburbs. Now we're using that stove
every day. In terms of hours of use, it's probably about 2 years old.
So, does anyone know if a bigger BTU burner retrofit is possible?

The price GE charges for parts almost makes it worthwhile replacing the
get the complete model number and go to the www.sears.com
go to repair parts. See what is listed for your stove. If you find it
take down the part number and do a google search on that part number to
find the cheapest source.
Sometimes Sears is the best, sometimes you can do better.
Any that I've seen are larger diameter and the stove top will have a larger
cutout also. I don't think you will have much luck. Some brands also seem
to have a problem with very low flame for simmering. Our Roper (about 20
years old) does not have that problem but the big high powered ranges are
more prone to it from what I've read. Some even have a flame diffuser for
