What happens if you light one burner at a time, and let it burn for a minute then a second one, then third? Watch to see if the first burner fades when next burner is lit.

When you get through with the above, lift the cook top and see if there is either a valve or a regulator under there.

If there is a valve, check that it is open and clear.

If it is a regulator, check with the manufacturer to find what the burner pressure is supposed to be and how they advise that you check it.

I think it’s looking pretty stong that its the 10” pressure regulator.
I’m going to buy one and try it.

Still the same.

Do a "Soap Bubble" test for gas flow/pressure at input to the regulator in question.

If no bubbles then troubleshoot "why no pressure".

Has this stove ever worked properly in the past history?

There is propane coming in.

The burners are weak.
The oven burner runs but wife says it was stronger.

Refrigerator running (but isnt that like a very small flame?)
Hot water heater makes hot water

The main regulator is 3-4 years old.
It switches between the two 30lb tanks.

What you call the main regulator is the one you should have changed out!

The "MAIN" regulator and the Auto Switch over are the same part. You should replace both as a set for best results. Almost ALL replacements are the set, not the regulator and then the Auto switchover valve. A BAD Water Heater Flame will still heat the water but takes a long time. Your Oven/Range has its OWN regulator and that reduces the Pressure from 11.5 down to 10 which is what the Oven runs at. You NEED a Pressure test to make sure you have 11.5 inches pressure. OIL in the LP lines can also cause your problem, but usually affects all LP appliances. Not having a pressure test, you are just left replacing various parts. Doug
