    Jet sounds partly blocked. Remove 2 plate screws and remove along with alloy burner. You should see the brass jet shaped like a nut. Unscrew this and clear it. Dont use a metal pin unless it is smaller than jet size as making jet size bigger will let to much gas through. You can soak it in very hot water should clean any grease out blow through with compressed air.

    If the flame goes out when you release the knob it will be the flame failure thermocouple, you might find the end is burnt away.

    As one of the nobs is not moving make sure it is pushed all the way in. Try WD 40 on the shaft after pulling the nob off. Push nob back on and try to move it back and forth lots of times with gentle movements and more WD40. It cou,d take 10 mins to free up. Dont snap brass shaft.

    Use Copaslip on the new screws just in case you need to remove them in future.
