There is no adjustment on the ts4000. The ts8000 has the ability to adjust by turning the knob while depressed, however the ts4000 does not. If you use a hose with an in-line regulator between the cylinder and the torch that would give you the ability to adjust your flame. Make sure the hose and regulator used are suitable and rated accordingly.

The igniter is activated by a pressure switch, when you press a button or push in the knob, sounds like it has a bit of gunk in ther e stopping it from coming out again.

First I would try heating it up until it is red and then twist it off. If that is not an option for you then I would get a rotary tool (hobby size) with a cutoff wheel and carefully cut into it from the side about halfway through. That will get it.

In order to reach the ignitor you must remove the maintop assembly which is one unit and it can be pull up. The rest is very easy under the maintop there are the burners and ignitor so you can replace.

Here is a link so you use as a reference.

Lowly what the potentior does is turn on the burner control system. When you turn on a normal burner you are opening a gas valve and closing a switch to generate a spark. Thus gas flow to the burner and spark. On the extra low simmer burner there is a electric solenoid between the burner head and the gas valve. this has to open as well for gas to flow. What the potentior does is signal the simmer control what level of flame you are requesting and telling the spark module to generate a spark. Once you go to the exlow setting the potentior tells the simmer control what level of heat and will cycle the flame on and off. So when the burner knob was between low and extra low, the flame would cycle on and off. You have to seperate the top section of the cooktop from the burner box to change the potentior for it sits on top of the gas valve for that burner.
