Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. You can adjust the amount of fuel by turning the knob to 0 and remove the knob. You will see a flat head screw that adjusts the flame.

canuck the pro :

Let me know if you have any further questions. I am happy to help and I am online most times.

Customer:

There is no flat head screw under the knob on the neff , just the shaft of the control with a flat edge to it.

canuck the pro :

There may be a cover on it, no screw?

Customer: No screw
canuck the pro :

Ok sorry, but I have no other suggestions at this time. I will opt out and another expert should help soon. Mike

Have you been able to take the injector our to clean it, there may be some grit behind the injector port
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
What is the injector port?
Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 3 years ago.
You called it the intake hole - is there a brass injector there or is it an open tube and the injector is on the back of the gas rail near the taps?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Under the ring there is an open hole . I have not investigated further as this would require unscrewing the whole unit.
Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 3 years ago.
Ok, the injector will be at the gas rail then, you will need an engineer to strip it out and clean it to cure this
