Help! BS Simmer Adjustment gone awry!
I am hoping someone will know what has happened. Encouraged by reports that I should be able to adjust the simmer on my BS burners low enough until the ignitors click I just took an adjustment screwdriver to adjust one of my 22K burners. The screwdriver was all in place and I could rotate the adjustment screw to raise the flame. However, on turning the other way to lower the flame the flame did lower and then it felt like something "gave" inside the valve and suddenly the flame became HIGHER and there is a sound of gas whooping now on the lowest setting. It feels very much like something has stripped inside the valve. Needless to say the flame now is WAY higher on the lowest setting that it was previously and there is no way I can get it back to its previous lower level. I am going to call Mandy tomorrow and hope she can help me to get this sorted out. Meanwhile the purpose of this post is to (a) ask if anyone knows what could have happened and a potential fix and (b) WARN other BS owners to be careful if you try to adjust this simmer.
Obviously I should have left well alone....:). However, now I must deal with fixing the situation. Many thanks in advance for any advice.
