I've got an older commercial wolf KCHSSR range. I swapped out orifices to LP. The range works fine, but at wide open, the burners have a HUGE flame (like, 6" high--brings out the arsonist in me). Shutters are wide open. Is there any way to adjust the amount of gas each valve sends to the burners, or is a commercial range just supposed to have an insanely high flame, and a (hopefully) not so insane operator?

what type of orifice does it use? does the orifice have male or female threads? if it has female threads its an orifice hood and should be tightend all the way until it bottoms out. also the regulator needs to be set to LP.

Orifices have female threads, but tightening one until it bottomed out didn't seem to make a difference. AFAIK, the regulator is LP--changed out same time I changed out the orifices with the kit from Dvorsons, I'm pretty sure. ... hate to ask a newbie question, but couldn't find anything online about changing or adjusting the regulator.

the regulator should have a cap on the center of it. remove the cap and inspect the insert inside. one side will be stamped NG and the other will be LP. the insert needs to be set for LP

There's a large 3/4" screw in the center, and a plastic screw under that, then a blue spring. I'm assuming adjusting the plastic screw adjusts the spring's tension which adjusts the gas pressure. THere's also a small blue plastic plug below the larger screw in the center, but there doesn't appear to be anything adjustable under that. I'm sure this is newbie stuff, and I appreciate your help. WOuld be great if there were an online guide to this (but I'm guessing there's too much liability in putting info on messing with propane stuff online).

I think this is the same regulator I have (but mine has a removable screw in the center):
